All you need to know for today's racing as Hereford succumbs to frost

Fontwell: set to race after the rain abated
1 of 1

Fontwell will stage the only turf racing in the UK on Monday after frost claimed Hereford's card shortly before 9am on the morning of racing.

Heavy rain had put the Fontwell fixture under threat but a break in the wet weather enabled the track to become raceable again so it can stage a six-race card.

At Hereford, where vulnerable areas had been covered to try to stave off the impact of a dip in temperatures, the mercury went as low as -4.5C overnight and had not sufficiently recovered by the time officials staged an inspection, which was scheduled for 9am but called shortly before.

Once Fontwell ends, there is an all-weather card from Wolverhampton, where a conditions stakes over the extended 1m1f is the feature.


Going report

Fontwell - first race 1.15

Heavy, soft in places on hurdles course; soft, heavy in places on chase course (GoingStick 5.7 on Monday at 6.30)

Rail movements will add 153yds to the 2.15 and 102yds to all others

Hereford - cancelled due to frost

Wolverhampton - 4.15

Standard


Market movers

Fontwell 1.15 My Dance 9-2 (from 6-1)
Wolverhampton 4.45 Lucky Lodge 6-1 (from 12s)
Wolverhampton 4.45 Bell Heather 17-2 (from 16s)
Wolverhampton 7.45 Beatbybeatbybeat 6-1 (from 11s)

What to watch

The best of Racing Post Sport

The third round of the FA Cup concludes with the televised match between Brighton and Crystal Palace.

Final thought 

Arc should take seriously Mick Appleby's support for a dirt surface at Southwell as it considers replacing the Fibresand. Not only would it provide an alternative surface to race on, it would give trainers another route into the US market to sell on horses, which has a vital part to play in keeping many yards in business.
