Waterlogging claimed Ayr Tuesday card
Waterlogging claimed Ayr Tuesday card

Tuesday’s meeting at Ayr has been called off due to a waterlogged track.

A total of 51 millimetres of rain has fallen at the venue since Saturday and with further rain and strong winds forecast, clerk of the course Graeme Anderson admits there is no chance of conditions improving.

He said: “We had 16mm of rain overnight, which makes it 51mm since 5pm on Saturday.

“We have a further 10-15mm forecast along with 50 miles per hour winds, so it isn’t going to improve.

“Waterlogging aside, you wouldn’t have raced this morning just for the wind and unfortunately it’s not due to improve until Wednesday now.”

Lingfield was also due to stage jumps action on Tuesday, but that card was cancelled due to waterlogging.

There was good news from Plumpton though, with Monday’s card getting the go-ahead after passing an inspection.
