Slim hope for Fakenham

Fakenham's meeting on Thursday already looks in grave doubt as the course is covered in four inches of snow.

Fakenham: Hoping the forecasters are wrong

After nearly a week of freezing temperatures and with no sign of a let up, there is little chance of the snow shifting in time.

To compound matters more snow is forecast.

Clerk of the course David Hunter said: "I've been away since Thursday and just got back and nothing has changed at all.

"We have not had the extreme cold we had early on last week, but the forecast is for more snow and I'm pretty sure we will be able to make the decision one way or the other on Tuesday.

"It might depend on Sunday night whether we do get snow and what the temperatures are.

"If it deteriorates I would bring the inspection forward if need be.

"We just have to hope and pray the forecasters may have got something wrong."
