Wednesday’s meetings at Gowran Park and Beverley were both cancelled because of waterlogging.

Gowran has been hit by more than 50mm of rain in the past few days, and the decision to call off the meeting was taken just after 8am.

Following further rain overnight, on ground already described as heavy, Beverley’s eight-race card was cancelled just before a scheduled 7am inspection.

Newton Abbot’s jumps fixture was already abandoned – leaving three remaining cards in Britain, at Hamilton, and evening meetings at Wolverhampton and Warwick.
