A further inspection of the Geraldton race track surface was today undertaken by RWWA Curator Assistance Programme Manager Geoff Murphy and Geraldton Turf Club Officials.

Mr Murphy reported that the track has come on significantly from the previous inspection on 5 October and consequently the track was approved for the meeting on Thursday, 25 October to go ahead as scheduled.

To give the inside part of the track further time to improve, the first two meetings of the season will be conducted with the moveable rail out six metres and fields restricted to ten starters.

Entries for the opening meeting close at 9.30am tomorrow morning, 19 October.
