Monday’s meeting at Market Rasen has been called off as the current cold snap continues to bite.

An inspection was held at noon on Sunday at the English track, but the course was still frozen from Friday evening’s frost and the temperature also dipped again on Saturday night.

With snow showers forecast for Sunday and a -4C possible overnight, an early call was made.

The course tweeted: “Unfortunately we have had to abandon tomorrow’s meeting to frozen ground. With a further low temperature forecast overnight and into tomorrow, there is no chance for improvement.”

The meeting at Plumpton on Monday is also in doubt as the course in currently frozen in places.

Vulnerable areas are covered, but after temperatures dropped to -3C overnight with another cold night forecast, officials will inspect at 8am.
