Fontwell announce inspectionHeadlines
Action from Fontwell.

Fontwell's meeting on Boxing Day must surive an 8am inspection on raceday morning.

Officials will assess conditions following 17 millimetres of overnight rain. On Christmas Day morning there was found to have been standing water on the track.

Clerk of the course Ed Arkell said: "We were forecast showers, but we had rather more than just showers. Today will be a windy day, which could help us, although there might be more rain to come. It's going to be a real case of waiting to see happens with the weather."

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."

Leicester's fixture on Friday must pass an 11am inspection on Boxing Day.

The track is partially waterlogged following 18 millimetres of overnight rain. Further rain has been forecast during the next few days.
