This afternoon's meeting at Haydock goes ahead after the track passed a morning inspection.

Clerk of the course Kirkland Tellwright had been concerned by the prospect of further rain overnight but he reports the weather to have remained dry.

The ground is officially described as heavy ahead of a seven-race card.

Might Bite To Prove His Worth Next Season

There is not much attention given to national hunt racing in the summer months, by punters or by the media. It is, of course, understandable given that our attention is focused on the flat season: the action at Royal Ascot, the Classics and the rest of the elements that define the summer racing season. Some punters might have a dabble at an ante post bet for Cheltenham next year, but by and large we forget about it until the autumn.
