Cheltenham abandons New Year’s Day card

The course is waterlogged after 85mm of rain in the past week.

CHELTENHAM’S NEW YEAR’S Day meeting has been abandoned because of waterlogging.

An inspection was due to take place at the course at 8.30am today – but shortly beforehand, Cheltenham’s official Twitter account reported that the scheduled card will not take place.

It read: “New Year’s Day Racing abandoned. Following 85mm of rainfall since last Wednesday, there are areas of waterlogged ground across the width of the course, and it is therefore not raceable.”

The seven-race card was due to feature the Grade Two Dornan Engineering Relkeel Hurdle.
