November Handicap at Doncaster cancelled
on 08 November 2019
As expected, Saturday's flat finale fixture at Town Moor is waterlogged

Saturday’s meeting at Doncaster has been cancelled due to a waterlogged track.

The fixture was due to be the finale of the Flat season on the turf, with the November Handicap the feature event.

Officials had planned to inspect at 8am on Friday, but that check was brought forward after significant rainfall on Thursday left the track waterlogged with areas of standing water in places.

Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan said: “We had 60 millimetres of rain yesterday and have had a further 1.5mm this morning, with further rain forecast this afternoon.

“There are areas of standing water on the track and that just has nowhere to go. All the drains around here are absolutely full.

“We will work towards our first jumps fixture in December now (13th and 14th).”
