Leicester: Forced to abandon Thursday's meeting

Sky Bet

This afternoon's meeting at Leicester has been abandoned due to a frozen track.

Clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson announced a second inspection at 10.30am but the ground was still found to be unfit for racing.

Overnight temperatures dipped to as low as minus 6.2C.

"We needed that sun to come out, but it's just not happened," said Stevenson.

"It's not going to warm up enough in time, so we've had to call it a day unfortunately."
