Big cards look to beat the rainHeadlines
Kempton action

Hopes are high of all nine remaining meetings scheduled for Boxing Day going ahead, although Chepstow's Coral Welsh National fixture on Thursday has already been called off.

Huntingdon's Boxing Day card was abandoned on Sunday due to a flooded track and while Wetherby will have to pass an inspection, the overall picture appears positive at most venues.

Kempton's William Hill King George VI Chase day is the undoubted highlight and clerk of the course Brian Clifford reports the Sunbury venue as ready to race.

He said: "We are soft, heavy in places. We have had five millimetres of rain overnight, but it's dry and breezy. We are forecast showers with a more organised band of rain possibly moving through.

"We are 60% soft and 40% heavy, but we will be on fresh ground."

Wetherby are due to stage the Rowland Meyrick Chase but the track must pass an 8.30am inspection on raceday morning.

Clerk of the course Jonjo Sanderson said: "Around 70 or 80% of the waterlogging has gone and we now have some small areas of standing water which we could probably weave around.

"We have a mixed forecast with anything from half an inch to a couple of millimetres forecast, so we will have a look at 8.30am on Boxing Day."

Sedgefield's meeting will go ahead as planned after the track passed an inspection on Christmas Eve.

Clerk of the course Phil Tuck said: "We have got a very positive forecast and have passed the inspection so the meeting goes ahead as planned. We've seen a massive improvement and while it could still improve a little bit more, we can always miss out a fence if we need to."
