Sedgefield has got the all clear for today’s meeting after passing a third morning inspection.

Two earlier checks proved inconclusive but temperatures have risen sufficiently through the morning for the jumps card to take place.  

Frost covers have been deployed on the course with ground conditions described as good to soft. 

There are no problems at Warwick, which also stages jumping, while all-weather fare comes from Wolverhampton.

Final thought 

Six winners from 14 runners – including a Grade 1 strike with Altior – last week mean some of Nicky Henderson’s string are still firing despite health concerns at his yard and he could enjoy a good day at Warwick with Laskadine (1.00) and Yellow Dockets (1.30).
