Picturesque Towcester: Rain threatens Thursday card
This afternoon's meeting at Towcester has been given the go ahead despite heavier than expected overnight rain.
Clerk of the course Robert Bellamy called an unscheduled inspection for 8am after double the amount of forecast rain fell on the Northamptonshire track.
When daylight came, however, Bellamy and his team were happy enough to give the meeting the green light.
Bellamy said: "We're going ahead. It's very wet but we're raceable."
