A contingency plan to stage an all-chase and bumper card at Lingfield on Tuesday will be implemented after the hurdle races were abandoned due to waterlogging.

Lingfield: Contingency plan implemented

The fixture will include the three chases already scheduled plus three additional chases and a National Hunt Flat race, which will be run on the all-weather track.

Clerk of the course Neil Mackenzie Ross said: "We've had steady rain all day, at 2pm we'd had just over five millimetres and it's still continuing to rain.

"The hurdle course is waterlogged, which was expected with any rain, but hopefully we will be able to race on the chase course all being well.

"Tomorrow is relatively dry with possibly the odd rogue shower, but there's certainly some snow around in the forecast tonight and it's been a wet day, so we will be in a better position to assess things tomorrow after we see what tonight brings."
