Clerk of the course Andrew Cooper said earlier today: "We had further overnight as expected, unfortunately at the top end of the forecast scale, about nine millimetres in total.

"There could also be an organised spell of rain around on Saturday morning between 5am and 10am.

"We are hanging in there at the moment and just need help from the weather in the next 12- to 24-hour period.

"It's only right and proper we give it every chance of getting it on and do our best to do so, but it's going to be a close call."

However after further rain at lunchtime, Cooper tweeted that there were now "areas of concern" on the track.
