RACING: Waterlogged Warwick off

TODAY'S CARD at Warwick was abandoned yesterday after the track became waterlogged.

The clerk of the course, Fiona Needham, reported an area of the hurdles track to be the main problem and, with more rain forecast, she was forced to call the meeting off. She explained: "There's a small area of waterlogging on the hurdles track that has come up since this morning. It's not raining now, but it's very dark and mizzley and I think there is more rain on the way."

No problems are expected at today's other jump meetings at Ayr and Newbury.
