Forecast wintry weather later this week has prompted the British Horseracing Authority to programme two extra Polytrack meetings at Lingfield and Kempton.

Kempton: Will host extra card on Saturday

Lingfield will hold a card of jumpers' bumpers on Thursday, with declarations to be made by 10am on Wednesday, with five races primarily aimed at hurdlers and chaser,s plus two other Open National Hunt Flat races.

The additional all-weather Flat meeting will be at Kempton on Saturday due to the threat of lost jumping cards with details of the seven-race programme to be announced on Tuesday.
