Musselburgh given green light after surviving frost scare

1 of 1

There will be a full quota of meetings in Britain and Ireland, as Musselburgh's meeting was given the green light at 10.45am. Frost had lingered in some areas of the course, leading to checks at 8am and 10am, but with temperatures rising through the morning officials were able to give the all-clear following a third look.

Clerk of the course Harriet Graham said: "We had a shower of rain which really helped us and temperatures are rising. The forecast is for sleety showers and periods of sunshine."

Along with Musselburgh, there is jumps action at Chepstow, plus a feast of fixtures for for all-weather fans with evening action from Dundalk and Newcastle following Lingfield's afternoon card.

Udontdodou is one of the all-weather stars on show and puts the finishing touches to preparations on home soil for a $200,000 conditions race at Santa Anita a fortnight on Saturday as he tackles the Class 2 Betway Sprint Handicap (2.30) at Lingfield.

The star of Richard Guest's squad in Wetherby, Udontdodou was too hot for his rivals to handle over 5f at Chelmsford last time but also boasts a fine record over today's 6f trip.

Final thought

Spare Parts went down all guns blazing at Chelmsford on Thursday night, where a high draw and inadequate trip ended his winning sequence. All being well he runs again on Saturday and, from stall five over a mile, he could easily go one place better and make it five wins in January.
