Doncaster’s two-day fixture this week is likely to take place on vastly different ground conditions.
While the Town Moore surface is drying nicely ahead of Friday’s card, with the hurdle track already seeing good to soft places, up to 10 millimetres of rain is forecast from Friday afternoon into Saturday, which is expected to ease the going considerably.
Clerk of the course Roderick Duncan said om Wednesday afternoon: “We’ve got a couple of dry drys and the forecast says it will remain dry until racing on Friday.
“Potentially there is the chance of rain towards the back-end of the card and that rain could be more significant for Saturday’s card.
“It’s drying nicely now, we could be on better ground for Friday with good to soft already in the description on the hurdles course.
“There is the potential for up to 10 millimetres or more between Friday night and Saturday – and while I don’t expect that to create any risk, I do expect it to ease the ground, possibly back to where we were at the start of the week.”
