Leicester gets go-ahead

This afternoon’s meeting at Leicester has passed an 8am precautionary inspection.

Due to the wet weather in the Midlands clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson called a check as more rain was forecast overnight but the track has taken it well.

“We’ve passed the inspection and racing goes ahead,” said Stevenson.

“We had three millimetres overnight and another four millimetres this morning, and it is still raining now, but it is due to stop within the next half an hour.

“The going is heavy on the hurdle track and soft, heavy on the Flat course crossings on the chase track.”
