A round-up of the latest weather news from tracks set to race in the days ahead.

The situation looks brighter on Wednesday, although Ludlow's meeting has been abandoned through waterlogging.

Doncaster looks set fair to stage an eight-race jumping card.

Fontwell's meeting on Thursday has also already been abandoned due to waterlogging after a further eight millimetres of rain overnight.

"More rain meant it was an easy decision to make," said clerk of the course Edward Arkell.

"The course would need a dry four or five days before it is raceable and we are not going to get that so there is no point dragging it out."

Huntingdon's meeting on Friday is also in doubt with an inspection called for 11am on Wednesday as the course is partially flooded.

Clerk of the course Sulekha Varma tweeted: "Flooded last night. Water still rising. Inspection 11am Wed. All not lost but need water to start receding soon!"
