Clerk of the course David Hunter did an inspection at 6.30am and declared the meeting on.

The good news followed a similar story on new year's day when there had been fears about racing being called off but mild weather arrived just in time.

'We are racing today!' declared a relieved Mr Hunter. There is a very exciting day's racing ahead of us but it will be wet today.'

The meeting starts at 1.20pm and there are six races.
