Racing goes ahead today at Fakenham after the course beat the cold weather for the second time in less than two weeks.

Overnight temperatures of 6.5C ensured the frost which had been in the ground for several days had cleared.

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