Racing goes ahead at Chepstow, Wincanton and Kempton after inspections
Chepstow’s rescheduled Coral Welsh National card has been given the green light this morning after the track passed a morning inspection.
Temperatures dropped to 0C overnight in south Wales but the track has withstood the cold and the ground is described as heavy, as excitement builds towards the Coral Welsh National.
Fears of frost and snow at both Kempton and Wincanton have also not materialised, with both passing morning inspections, meaning ITV’s bumper ten-race package this afternoon remains undisturbed.
The ground at Kempton is good to soft, soft (in places) on the chase course and soft, good to soft (in places) on the hurdles course, ahead of eight races headlined by the Ladbrokes Lanzarote Hurdle.
At Wincanton, the ground is soft, good to soft (in places) for eight races featuring the the rescheduled the Grade 2 Paddy Power Dipper Novices’ Chase.
