Newcastle have cancelled their planned 2pm inspection today and will check conditions at 8am ahead of tomorrow’s meeting.
Clerk of the course James Armstrong was due to assess the track this afternoon after snow fell at Gosforth Park over the weekend but as that snow has now melted, he has called off that look.
However, the venue is forecast a chilly night and Armstrong is now concerned about the prospect of frost.
He said: “We have got rid of the snow overnight as the temperature has risen and we have had four millimetres of rain too.
“We are forecast a frost overnight though, with temperatures forecast to drop as low as -3C. It is due to start dropping away from 7pm tonight and we are forecast a cold day tomorrow with a high of about 3C.
“Obviously if that is the case it would be a problem, but we will keep our fingers crossed and see what the night brings.”
