Tuesday was the first meeting back for the Seymour Racing Club since 21 December, and unfortunately the track was not performing at the level anticipated following the four month break.
Various soil and turf tests have been conducted since the meeting in an attempt to determine the likely cause of the issues and help rectify the matter.
