Racing: Frost threatens

Click to follow
FROST last night threatened today's racing. Inspections were called for early this morning to determine whether the cards at Ayr and Plumpton could go ahead.

Ayr could have raced yesterday but a precautionary inspection was arranged for 7am. Plumpton's decision is due half-an- hour later and, though no inspection was planned at Stratford, frost was forecast there too.

The track at Carlisle, one of tomorrow's four scheduled cards, is frozen and an inspection will be held at 12.30pm today. Frost forced the abandonment of yesterday's racing at Wolverhampton.
