Newcastle have abandoned their Friday card
Friday's meeting at Newcastle has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.
Clerk of the course James Armstrong inspected the venue on Thursday morning but following further overnight rain, he was forced to call off the meeting.
He said: "We had eight millimetres of rain overnight and there's been a heavy drizzle all this morning .
"We are due another 4-7mm tonight and another 3-4mm tomorrow. The track is waterlogged, it is the same areas as last time we abandoned that are effected and we can't avoid them."
