Leicester meet succumbs to frost

This afternoon's meeting at Leicester has been abandoned due to a frozen track.

Clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson announced a second inspection at 10.30am but the ground was still found to be unfit for racing.

Overnight temperatures dipped to as low as -6.2C.

"We needed that sun to come out, but it's just not happened," said Stevenson.

"It's not going to warm up enough in time, so we've had to call it a day unfortunately."
