Wetherby: Boxing Day inspection called

Clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson had initially planned to check conditions at 11am on Christmas eve but will now wait until Wednesday after seeing some improvement in the ground.

He said after walking the track: "Yesterday was dry, bright and sunny and we have seen the expected improvement. Around 70 or 80% of the waterlogging has gone and we now have some small areas of standing water which we could probably weave around.

"It would be touch and go if we were racing today but after seeing Ascot and Haydock at the weekend, we could work around it.

"We have a mixed forecast for today with anything from half an inch to a couple of millimetres forecast, so we will have a look at 8.30am on Boxing Day."
