Chases abandoned at TauntonHeadlines
Racing at Taunton

An all-hurdle and bumper card has been programmed for Taunton on Tuesday after the chases were abandoned due to waterlogging.

The track is still suffering from the amount of rain that fell on it when the weather was at its worse, even though matters have improved recently.

"Even though the course has only had a further 30mm of rain since February 7, it has still not fully recovered from the deluge it received prior to that. The hurdle course remains heavy, but the steeplechase course is still waterlogged in places," said chief executive Bob Young.

"We are grateful to the Racing Department at the British Horseracing Authority for again helping us to run an all-hurdle card with a bumper to finish.

"The forecast is now settled for the next week or so and we hope we will back on track for our meeting on February 28."

Navan's fixture on Sunday has been cancelled as the track is unfit for racing. The meeting has instead been moved to next Tuesday.

The course was due to stage four Grade Twos, including the Red Mills Chase, which had been transferred from Gowran Park's Saturday fixture.

The chase course at Gowran is also unfit for racing and the card there now consists of hurdle races and bumpers.
