Taunton’s jumps meeting on October 31 has been abandoned due to hard ground on parts of the course.

A notice on the course’s official website read: “Following an exceptionally dry extended summer, the racing scheduled for 31st October has been abandoned due to hard ground on parts of the course.

“The course has been vertidrained and irrigated as much as resources allow, but only 49 millimetres of rain has fallen on the course since September 24 – with 35mm of that on the weekend of October 13/14.

“There has been no measurable rainfall here since October 16.”
