The big freeze shows no signs of abating, and no racing in the British Isles at all, even Wolverhampton’s All Weather fixture having been beaten by the weather.

A great shame, as a large crowds of people enjoy their Boxing Day fixtures at their local course, and if it loses a course like Towcester £70,000, this is nothing short of a disaster for racing generally.

Hopefully some of the meetings will survive for tomorrow, but it’s not looking too promising.
