With temperatures dipping to -3c on Monday morning, some areas were found to be frozen during an initial 7.30am inspection and there was not sufficient improvement by the time a second inspection was held at 9.30am.

There remains cause for optimism though, with the temperature reported to be on the rise and take off and landing areas having been covered since Saturday.

Lingfield's meeting has already been abandoned due to waterlogging but there are no such problems at Wolverhampton despite temperatures of -3.6c earlier in the morning, where an eight-race cards gets underway at 2.20.
