Racing: Newbury is sunk

Click to follow
TODAY'S CARD at Newbury and tomorrow's meeting at Newton Abbot have become the latest victims of the weather. At the Berkshire venue, which staged a card on Saturday, the clerk of the course, Richard Pridham, said: "We had 12mm of rain overnight, there is a huge amount coming down now and there is more forecast so it was hopeless."

Newton Abbot, which also lost its Boxing Day meeting, is the 12th jumps meeting this season to be lost to the weather.
