Lingfield – Monday card under threat

Monday’s National Hunt meeting at Lingfield is subject to a precautionary inspection at 8am.

Conditions at the Surrey circuit were described as heavy – and “wet in a few areas” – but raceable on Sunday morning.

But with showers forecast, clerk of the course George Hill has announced an inspection for race-day morning.

Punchestown’s Monday fixture is also under threat – with an inspection called for 7.45am.

A statement from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board read: “Following consultation with Met Eireann and due to a Status Yellow weather warning that is in place for the Kildare area, there will be a 7.45am inspection at Punchestown.”
