Clerk of the course Richard Osgood found the track fit to race on first inspection this morning, but called a further check for 10am as snow was starting to fall.

He subsequently reported the snow to be falling heavily and the course unraceable.

Osgood said: "We have had to call it off. We've taken a lot more snow than we expected and it's still coming down now.

"All we can see right now is snow and the course is unraceable. The forecast didn't suggest that anything like this would reach us."
