Lingfield: jumping due to take place on Monday
Lingfield: jumping due to take place on Monday

Jump racing could return in Britain on Monday, but Lingfield’s meeting that day is subject to a 7.30am inspection.

Officials at the track inspected on Sunday morning, but another check is needed as the course is frozen in places.

Rising temperatures of 8C on Sunday could help with the thaw, but prospects appear much brighter for Southwell’s jumps fixture on Monday with no inspection planned.

The going there is described as soft and temperatures could reach 7C on Sunday and are forecast to remain above freezing overnight.

There has been no jumping in Britain since last Monday, so the BHA has programmed an all-weather bumper bill at Kempton on Monday, while Wolverhampton stages a conventional Flat meeting on its artificial surface.
