Fakenham’s second meeting of 2016 is under threat as the rain continues to fall across parts of Norfolk.

The racecourse’s Twitter feed confirmed that an inspection will be held ahead of tomorrow’s six-race meeting, which is scheduled to start at 1.20pm.

The statement said: “GOING UPDATE: The ground is heavy we have had 14mm of rain. There will be an inspection at 2pm. #FakenhamRaces”

The first action of the new year came on January 1 when thousands of punters flocked to the popular North Norfolk racecourse.
