Officials arranged the check shortly after 6.30am when temperatures were -2C and they are set to rise to 6C later with a sunny day forecast.

Today's other jumps meetings come from Ludlow and Thurles, where no problems have been reported.

Two all-weather cards at Southwell and Chelmsford complete the domestic action, while the Dubai Carnival continues at Meydan.
