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."
