Kempton and Lingfield both set to race

RACING on the all-weather tracks at both Kempton and Lingfield is set to go ahead but Ayr must pass a second inspection before the track is cleared to stage Wednesday afternoon's jumps meeting.

Ayr agreed last week to stage an extra meeting after the course escaped the worst of the weather that has hit much of Britain but with temperatures hitting a low of -2 overnight an inspection was called for 10.45 ahead of Wednesday's planned inspection at 7.30.

Clerk of the course Emma Marley tweeted: "We have lots of horses on site @ayrracecourse let's give them a chance. Still 0c."

Plans for an inspection at Kempton were scrapped with the racing set to go ahead on ground described as standard to slow. It will be dry and cloudy there with a similar forecast for Lingfield where temperatures are above freezing.

Limerick passed an 8am inspection, Huntingdon's Friday meeting was abandoned following an inspection while Doncaster will inspect at 10am for the same day.
