Taunton: Forced to abandon
Tuesday's National Hunt meeting at Taunton has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.
Heavy rain after several inches of snow had thawed gave officials at the Somerset track no alternative but to call off the fixture.
"We had about three to five inches of snow which melted on Friday and then we had an inch of rain on Friday night and a further inch of rain last night," said clerk of the course Michael Trickey.
"That was on already heavy ground and there was no way it was sustainable. There is more rain forecast on Monday and Tuesday, so I'm afraid we've had to come to the sad conclusion."
