BREAKING: Doncaster races are on

Have your say

This afternoon’s meeting at Doncaster goes ahead following a fourth course inspection.

Officials on Town Moor delivered the good news after the threat of frost had finally dissipated.

Although the track was reported as being “perfectly raceable all morning”, the main sticking point was the frozen clumps of turf that had been produced during Friday’s meeting.

But the situation has now improved sufficiently for clerk of the course Jon Pullin to give the six-race card the go-ahead.

He said: “I’m delighted to say that the meeting is on following a fourth inspection.

“We’ve had jockeys, trainers and course representatives out there, and there has been a significant improvement.”
