Conditions at the Surrey course were already described as heavy on Friday afternoon and with more rain forecast, clerk of the course Neil Mackenzie Ross called a precautionary inspection for 7.30am.

However, he has been able to make an early decision and give the National Hunt fixture the green light.

Mackenzie Ross said: "It's heavy ground but we're raceable.

"We had a few showers overnight and we're expecting a few more blustery showers later today.

"We've had just under 23 millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours, but thankfully we're fine to race."

A seven-race card at Lingfield gets under way at 12pm, with the Grade Two RSA Novices' Trial Chase (1.45) taking centre stage.
