Newcastle Saturday card threatened by frost
The Betfair Fighting Fifth Hurdle card of newcastle will be subject to an inspection on Saturday morning because of the threat of frost.
Clerk of the course James Armstrong reported that temperatures can drop to as low as -4c.
Frost sheets are currently on earth described as heavy after 15mm of rain on Wednesday and Thursday.
Waterlogging has, meanwhile, forced the abandonment of Sunday’s card in Leicester.
That path failed an review and became the moment to shed its fixture this weekend, even together using the Saturday assembly of Doncaster.
