Newbury forced to inspect again

This afternoon's jumps meeting at Newbury must pass a second inspection at 1100 GMT.

Newbury: Second inspection at 11am

With overnight temperatures having unexpectedly plummeted to as low as minus 4C, course officials were forced to assess conditions at 9.30am ahead of the six-race card.
