Leicester: Racing on today

Clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson was able to cancel a 7.45am inspection ahead of the all-chase card.

He said: "I'm really pleased. I wasn't looking forward to this morning to be honest as the last forecast I saw for last night was for 25 millimetres of rain, but we only had five millimetres with wind.

"It's heavy, but I'm quite happy with it. There's the chance of the odd shower, but mainly dry with the wind keeping going."
