Tomorrow's scheduled meeting at Nottingham has already been abandoned and Catterick (inspection 8.30am) and Newbury (9.30am) both report that their tracks are frozen.
Folkestone, however, holds out a glimmer of hope. "There is a light covering of snow over most of the track, but where this has melted the frost has got into the ground," a course spokesman said. The track will be inspected at noon.
A total of 24 meetings have now been lost this week and, even if temperatures rise over the weekend, forecasters are predicting heavy snowfalls.
Wolverhampton's double programme tomorrow on Fibresand provides a rare gleam of warming news.
Prospects in Ireland are only marginally better. Leopardstown and Limerick - both abandoned yesterday - are due to race again today with prospects rated "50-50 at best" at Limerick and "60-40 against" at Leopardstown.
If Leopardstown can race tomorrow and on Sunday then the cards will include some of the best races that were lost on earlier days of the meeting.Reuse content
