TODAY'S meeting at Folkestone has been abandoned because the course is waterlogged. It is the seventh card this week to fall victim to the weather. A deluge forced the abandonment of the last two races at Fontwell yesterday and Taunton was also hit when the stewards decided the ground on the chase course was unsuitable and called off the 2.30 and 3.30 races. As Leicester has passed an inspection, four meetings remain today. At Newbury, Richard Pridham, the clerk of the course, said: 'We could have raced today. There are no inspections planned although we are watching the weather overnight.'
