Scots produce cold comfort

Scottish turf has kept frost free and kept jump racing on the road, with yesterday's meeting at Ayr and today's card at Musselburgh (where there is a 7.30am precautionary inspection) supplying the only alternative to the sand tracks.

Many trainers were unhappy about the surface at Ayr, however, and 36 of the scheduled 77 runners were withdrawn.

Yesterday's Plumpton card, today's Nottingham meeting and tomorrow's Leicester card have all been abandoned due to frost and snow and there will be inspections today for tomorrow's Windsor card and Thursday's Towcester fixture.
