Two tracks to inspectHeadlines
Sedgefield racecourse

Tuesday's jumps meetings at Sedgefield and Fontwell are both subject to precautionary inspections at 8am on raceday morning.

Temperatures have dipped lower than forecast at Sedgefield, but it is hoped frost sheets deployed will be sufficient. The official going is described as soft, with the first race of a seven-race card scheduled for 12.20.

Fontwell felt it prudent to have a look as well, but clerk of the course Ed Arkell reports the course to be raceable and is anticipating no problems as long as the weather forecast is accurate.

He said: "We are perfectly raceable at the moment. The covers are all down and they should cope with the frost we are forecast. However, it is just better to be safe than sorry. If we did get down to minus 4C or minus 5C then we would have problems, but we are not forecast that and the covers should cope."

The going was described on Monday afternoon as soft, heavy in places.
