Haydock's meeting on Saturday is also in doubt. The going is already officially Heavy, and further rain would put the meeting in danger.
Leicester's meeting next Tuesday is another threatened. A spokesman said: "The going is Good to Soft, Soft in places on the Chase course, but Heavy over Hurdles. It couldn't stand much more rain."
Tomorrow's card at Market Rasen is "very safe", despite the abandonment of the two steeplechases. Clerk of the course Charlie Moore said: "We have had to abandon the chases but the hurdles course is a different kettle of fish. It is Soft, Good to Soft in the back straight. By dividing the conditional jockeys' hurdle, we will have six-races, starting at 1.10."
Today's three meetings appear safe, however, with Fergus Cameron, Lingfield assistant clerk of the course, confident the Turf card will go ahead. "The forecast is for it to remain dry," he said.Reuse content
