This afternoon's meeting at Lingfield has been abandoned due to snow and an inspection has been called ahead of Saturday's card.
Clerk of the course Neil Mackenzie Ross was forced to admit defeat after staging inspections at 8am, 10am and 11am in a bid to get this afternoon's meeting on.
The situation at the track deteriorated and he called off the meeting before a planned noon check.
He said: "We are just struggling with the machinery on the track. We can't get it round quickly enough to keep the track fit for racing.
"While it is not particularly heavy snow, it is coming down continuously, which means we aren't able to keep the track safe and fit."
A 7am inspection on raceday morning was later called to assess prospects for Saturday's card.
Mackenzie Ross continued: "We need to go and take stock of the situation, keep working the track for the rest of the day and overnight if needs be."
