Lingfield goes ahead

This afternoon’s meeting at Lingfield goes ahead after the track passed a morning inspection.

Clerk of the course Edward Arkell had planned to check conditions at 8am, but he was able to give the go-ahead earlier than planned after the areas of waterlogging improved overnight.

He said: “We’re going ahead. We’ve walked the track and seen plenty of improvement from yesterday. We may have to bypass another obstacle but we’re fit for racing.”

The going is reported to be heavy, soft in places.
