Market Rasen's fixture this afternoon has survived an early-morning precautionary inspection.

The Lincolnshire circuit had to assess conditions in light of a forecast for further showers.

A dry night, however, ensured the meeting was given the thumbs-up before the proposed 8am inspection.

The going is soft.

However, Thurles has been cancelled due to a waterlogged track.

The Irish venue was found to have been waterlogged following 23 millimetres of overnight rain.

An Irish Turf Club press release read: "The course was found to be waterlogged when inspected this morning."
