Uttoxeter: Saturday card abandoned
Saturday's National Hunt meeting at Uttoxeter has been abandoned following a 10am inspection.
Clerk of the course Charlie Moore reports the track to be unraceable due to frost and snow and admits the situation is hopeless.
He said: "We've had to let it go. We have still got two inches of snow on the track with a hard frost forecast for tonight.
"There is not sufficient warmth and moisture in the forecast before Saturday as the forecast rain will come too late.
"Even if it did come in time, we could then end up waterlogged."
