The richly-endowed Betfair Hurdle and the Betfair Denman Chase are two of the feature events on the card, but clerk of course Richard Osgood will have to check conditions in the morning due to the threat of further overnight rain.

He said: "I've called an inspection for 7am tomorrow and at the moment we could race, although we would be taking out two jumps.

"We had 22 millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours and we are looking at another 10mm tonight.

"Hopefully it will be dry until then and I would hope we could take a bit more."
