Friday's meeting at Bangor will have to pass an 8am inspection as the track remains frozen in places.

Clerk of the course Andrew Morris is upbeat about their chances of racing as a thaw is forecast tomorrow, but he will check conditions in case the necessary improvement does not materialise in time for racing.

He said: "At the moment we are frozen in places. We got down to -3C overnight and we are still below freezing at present.

"What is giving us some optimism is the fact warmer air is forecast to reach us about midnight tonight, with a rise to 4C by 6am tomorrow.

"We could be at 6C by midday, although that does bring the potential of 10 millimetres of rain.

"While there is a thaw forecast, it is whether it will get here in time."
