Doncaster falls victim to frost
Wednesday's jump racing has been wiped out following the abandonment of Doncaster because of a frozen track.

The day's only other National Hunt meeting, at Ludlow, had already fallen victim to the cold weather.

Doncaster track manager Malcolm Taylor said he had no choice but to call off the fixture following a 0730 inspection.

"The course is still frozen and temperatures have fallen since midnight which you would not tend to expect," he said.

Both of Tuesday's jump fixtures - at Sedgefield and Folkestone - were also lost, as was Monday's card at Carlisle.

Meanwhile, the British Horseracing Board have announced that three additional jumping meetings will take place next Sunday.

The new cards will be at Ayr, Exeter and Hereford, with more replacement fixtures due to be announced in the coming weeks.
