Clerk of the course Keith Ottesen reports the track to be waterlogged in places at present with the possibility of further rain over the coming days.
He said on Monday: "We are waterlogged and we'll have a look at 12 and see where we are. Further showers are forecast with organised bands of rain on Wednesday and Thursday and what we really need is a couple of clear days.
"We will get a further update on the weather before the inspection and make a decision from there."
Plans are already taking shape to reschedule the meeting for January 5 should Thursday's card be abandoned.
Ottesen added: "We are in discussions over how many races could be televised and we are working very hard with Coral to hold the meeting. January 5 looks a likely date should we not be able to race on Thursday."
