Tomorrow's all-chase card at Wincanton is subject to a precautionary inspection at 12.30pm this afternoon.
Following 11 millimetres of rain overnight and four millimetres so far today, the card is currently in grave danger of becoming another victim of the adverse recent weather but course officials remain optimistic.
Clerk of the course Barry Johnson said: "We're heavy ground and have got some standing water in places. The forecast is for showers this morning, not amounting to very much and that standing water should disperse."
He added: "We're very hopeful of racing, but what we don't want to see is four or five millimetres. We want to keep everyone informed."
Officials at Chepstow have called an inspection for 8am on Thursday ahead of the meeting planned for Friday. The ground is currently heavy, waterlogged in places.
Clerk of the course Keith Ottesen said: "We had an enormous amount of rain yesterday, we were forecast 12-15 millimetres for Tuesday but in a 24-hour period we had 47 millimetres, and either side of that, on Monday and since last night, we've had 10 millimetres, so that's more than two inches in just over 36 hours.
"It was torrential almost all of yesterday and including the snow melt we've had over 100 millimetres since Friday, hence at this time of year, with quite a worn track, it's not in good shape.
"Ironically the skies have cleared now, we're forecast a lit bit of rain but although Friday's forecast is uncertain it's looking like heavy rain from midnight on Thursday.
"Basically we really don't need another drop to give us a chance of racing and we can't be too optimistic, but we'll assess things at the inspection."
