Fontwell were this week forced to scrap tomorrow’s seven-race card.

Waterlogging and false ground saw the West Sussex surface fail an inspection on Thursday afternoon.

It is the second consecutive meeting the track has lost to the weather – after heavy rain put paid to action on Thursday, January 9.

The £50,000 Grade 2 feature is the richest race of the season at Fontwell and was won last term by Paul Nicholls’ Prospect Wells.
