Ayr hopeful of beating weather

Ayr's jumps meeting on Tuesday will need to pass a 7.30am precautionary inspection on raceday morning.

Although the Scottish circuit was perfectly raceable on Monday morning, up to eight millimetres of rain, sleet and snow could fall overnight.

Clerk of the course Emma Marley says she is still "hopeful" the fixture will defeat the elements.

The official going is soft, heavy in places.
