Big race event is abandoned

Have your say

TOMORROW’S meeting at Doncaster, which was due to feature the Sky Bet Chase, has been abandoned due to snow.

Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan was forced to abandon today’s card, the first of a two-day fixture on Town Moor.

A check for Saturday’s card showed the track to be unraceable with no chance of improvement. Duncan said: “Temperatures are not due to rise above zero with a Met Office warning for further snow tonight, so there is no hope.”
