Rain reaches Haydock
Overnight rain at Haydock has turned the going 'soft, heavy in places' with the prospect of further showers still to arrive.
Clerk of the course Kirkland Tellwright had predicted earlier this week that conditions would be very much on the slow side for tomorrow's Betfair Chase day programme, and his fears were confirmed by the arrival of 17mm of rain overnight.
With further sleety showers still arriving, according to this morning's update from the course, there looks little prospect of anything other than testing ground for the big card. Racing also takes place at the track today, where the highlights come in the form of a couple of interesting but small-field novice contests.
