The Eastbourne v Coventry Play-Off semi-final, first leg, was called off tonight (October 6) ten minutes before the official start time.

The track was waterlogged.

Arlington Stadium had missed most of the rain during the afternoon and the track was in great condition until 6.30pm when heavy rain began.

It left referee Christina Turnbull with no alternative but to call off the racing.

No re-staging date has been fixed.

The second leg (now the first leg) is tomorrow at Leicester, where Coventry ride their home matches.
