Leicester: Friday fixture can take place after Boxing Day inspection
Leicester's Friday meeting will take place as planned after the course passed a Boxing Day inspection.
Officials had to assess conditions after heavy rain had left the track partially waterlogged on Christmas Day. A dry night, however, has seen a sharp improvement in conditions.
Three reserve chases had been pencilled in - the hurdles circuit was under the most scrutiny - but that contingency plan is no longer necessary.
"The situation has improved nicely," said clerk of the course Jimmy Stevenson.
"The three reserve chases have been cancelled and we will revert to the original card. There's more rain around, but we should be fine."
