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.
But clerk of the course Richard Osgood and his team were not happy enough to give the fixture the go-ahead and must look again later in the morning.
Newbury head of communications Andy Clifton said: "We're heading in the right direction, but there are one or two areas of concern at the moment."
Daytime temperatures at the Berkshire circuit are forecast to reach a maximum of 5C.
The going on the Newbury hurdles track is soft, heavy in places, while the chase circuit is soft, good to soft in places.
