This afternoon's race meeting at Newcastle goes ahead following an inspection at 8am.

Clerk of the course James Armstrong gave the fixture a thumbs-up, which features the StanJames.com Fighting Fifth Hurdle.

He said: "We are on. We have a couple of areas to look at but if they don't improve, we can simply bypass them.

"We will also move the bend into the straight so we are on fresh ground."

However, it has been confirmed that Saturday's meeting at Bangor has been abandoned due to frost.
