Our scheduled visit to Leicester tonight has been rained off in spite of giving it every chance. There hasn't been time yet to discuss a restaging date.

Riders and officials were well on their way in spite of the threatening weather. John Campbell said "They did exactly what we would have done – they had a forecast which said it was going to clear up after two, so that's what they hoped. When the heavens opened again at 3:30 that killed it off."

That means Victor Palovaara will not make his return for Monarchs until our next match, which would be away at Berwick, but of course before then we have the Harrisons Scottish Open restaging at Armadale on Friday.
