Knavesmire quagmire

Following today's noon inspection, the remaining two days of York's flagship Ebor meeting have been abandoned. The Cambridge Advance Learner's Dictionary describes quagmire as 'an area of soft wet ground you sink into if you try and walk on it'. That just about sums up the Knavesmire at the moment.

Of course, every cloud has a silver lining. Several work colleagues had planned on attending today and, unwisely, had asked me to mark their card. Now they stand to lose just their pre-booked train fare - come this evening, they'll think they're quids in.
