Clerk of the course Sulekha Varma reports the hurdles track to be soft, heavy in places while the chase track is heavy, soft in places, but both courses are raceable after just under five millimetres of rain overnight.

She tweeted: "Got away lightly with only 4.8mm of rain @Huntingdon_Race so racing goes ahead.

"(It's) likely to be pretty holding. (The) last fence in home straight and first in back straight will be omitted for all chases."

The scheduled meeting at Taunton was abandoned earlier in the week.
