Course officials could even afford the luxury of moving forward their intended 7.30am check by around an hour after just three millimetres of rain fell overnight.

Although the Scottish circuit could sustain a further 10mm of rain this morning, the forecast looks particularly favourable heading into the afternoon.

The going is soft, heavy in places, with racing due to begin at 2.20pm.
