SATURDAY: Racing is ON

Have your say

This afternoon’s meeting at Doncaster will go ahead as scheduled after temperatures stayed above freezing overnight on Town Moor.

Clerk of the course Jon Pullin had called a precautionary inspection for 7.45am to guard against the threat of frost, but temperatures only dipped down to 2C.

Pullin said: “Thankfully we only got down to plus 2C overnight, so we have no problems at all.

“We had three-and-a-half millimetres of rain on Friday, so the ground is good to soft, soft in places.

“It’s a superb card this afternoon and I’m delighted we’ve been able to give the meeting the go-ahead at this early stage.”
