Racing: Thaw raises Kelso hopes

Click to follow
KELSO's card tomorrow offers the best hope that racing on turf will resume, after frost cleared yesterday . Courses due to stage turf racing on Thursday, Wincanton and Wetherby, also reported no problems yesterday.

Cards scheduled for Chepstow today and Plumpton tomorrow were abandoned yesterday. The tracks are waterlogged, the same problem that threatens Ascot on Friday and Saturday. Newcastle's Saturday fixture is also in danger.

On the all-weather, Maple Bay, reverting to six furlongs from two miles at Wolverhampton a week ago, won at the track yesterday, at 33-1. Celestial Choir (16-1) took the opening, 7f race after previously running over 14 furlongs.
