Wetherby card gets go-ahead

This afternoon's meeting at Wetherby goes ahead after temperatures failed to drop as far as feared overnight.

The threat of snow and frost had prompted the call for an 8am inspection but with temperatures already rising and no snow arriving overnight, the meeting has been given the green light.

The track tweeted: "Dry overnight with frost of -1.5C. Inspection cancelled and racing goes ahead. Dry, bright day ahead, with maximum temperatures of +4C."

The going is 'Good to Soft, Good in places'.

Frost covers were used at both Kempton and Warwick, but with temperatures reaching only -1C at both of those tracks, no problems have been encountered for today's two biggest British meetings.

Mranwhile, Sunday's meeting at Kelso is subject to an 8am inspection on raceday morning.

The track is currently reported to be frozen in places after temperatures dropped below freezing overnight, with another frost forecast in the early part of Saturday evening.

However, temperatures are forecast to climb from midnight and officials will assess conditions on Sunday morning.
