TOMORROW'S meeting at Worcester is to be televised on Grandstand to fill the gap left by the abandonment of the waterlogged Ascot fixture. Three races, including a selling hurdle, will be broadcast live as BBC cameras visit the National Hunt track for the first time since 1971.

Ascot's final Flat fixture of the year would have featured the Princess Royal and Cornwallis Stakes. Nicky Beaumont, the clerk of the course, said: 'There was another three-quarters of an inch of rain last night. We've had 7.52 inches since 8 September, which is quite incredible.'
