Today's meeting at Wolverhampton goes ahead after the track passed a 6.30am inspection.

Clerk of the course Fergus Cameron felt it prudent to check conditions in light of a forecast for further snow, but has been able to give the fixture the thumbs up.

He said: "We had further light snow yesterday afternoon and into the night but we have worked the track and although we are currently calling it slow, racing goes ahead.

"We are forecast between -1C and 1C today and there remains a low risk of further snow but all local roads are accessible.

"We will continue to monitor the conditions and if we can, we will try to reinstate the track towards standard."

Meanwhile today's meeting at Kempton has been abandoned due to "ice crystals" in the track.

Sunday's meeting at the Sunbury venue was also called off due to snow and officials had planned to inspect the track at 9am.

However, they have made an earlier call with the track unraceable due to "ice crystals".
