Haydock: Inspecting for their Sunday fixture

The Merseyside circuit is currently raceable, but 20mm of rain has been forecast heading into the weekend. With 8mm of rain having fallen on Boxing Day, the going is already officially described as heavy.

Clerk of the course Kirkland Tellwright said: "Whether we race or not is finely balanced at this stage.

"We had 7mm overnight and are forecast another 20mm. The merit of calling a Saturday inspection is we get to see more hands unfold before we play our own.

"We got through last Saturday's meeting fine but that could have prejudiced Sunday's chances. I'd say it's a 50-50 chance at present."
