Exeter’s all-hurdle card on new Year’s Day is subject to an 8am inspection tomorrow due to the threat of waterlogging.
While the track has now thawed completely having been frozen last week, the new threat is rain after the course was hit by two inches in the last 48 hours.
“We’ve had 48 millimetres of rain which at least has got rid of the frost,” said clerk of the course Barry Johnson.
“We’ve already switched to an all-hurdle card with a bumper on the end and we are 90% raceable.
“We’ll have a look at 8am tomorrow but if we get any more significant rain we could be in some doubt.
“There are two areas that are causing us some concern. Also it could get below freezing on Thursday night but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.”
