Newbury going turns heavy

This afternoon's meeting at Newbury has passed a 7.30am course inspection and goes ahead as scheduled.

Action from Newbury

Seventy-four millimetres of rainfall within the last 24 hours has led to heavy going at the Berkshire circuit.

But conditions were nonetheless still deemed suitable for racing following an early-morning assessment.

Newbury head of communications Andy Clifton said: "The track has handled the rain amazingly well.

"There is no further significant rain forecast so we are good to go."

Newbury also stages a meeting on Saturday, featuring the Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes.

Clifton added: "You can never say never, but I wouldn't have thought we will be having an inspection for tomorrow.

"We should be OK."
