Lingfield Turf Heats In Doubt

Lingfield will hold an inspection at 6.30am to see whether Tuesday’s scheduled races on the grass course can take place.

The Surrey track will have no problems with the all-weather surface and will stage those events in any case, but the turf has been affected by the considerable rain across the country during recent days.

“We’ve just spoken to the British Horseracing Authority and should the inspection fail, the all-weather action will continue as programmed, but we would lose the turf races,” said Lingfield’s clerk of the course, Neil MacKenzie Ross.

“We would then hold a five-race card. As things stand, the turf is a mixture of heavy and soft.

“We are raceable at the moment but we had 36 millimetres of rain overnight, there will be more today, and we’re in the position where we are not going to be able to take a whole lot more.”
