This afternoon's jumps meeting at Newbury must pass an impromptu 9.30am inspection.
Newbury: 930 inspection
With temperatures having surprisingly plummeted overnight, course officials must now assess conditions later in the day.
A tweet issued by Newbury read: "Temperature unexpectedly dropped to minus 4C overnight. We have called a precautionary inspection at 9.30am."
Daytime temperatures at the Berkshire circuit are forecast to reach a maximum of 5C.
Newbury head of communications Andy Clifton said: "We've covered the take-offs and landings, but it wasn't forecast to get that low overnight.
"The ground temperatures are well above freezing, but we'll get a better idea after dawn."
