Leicester given all clear

Racing at Leicester on Tuesday is due to go ahead as planned following a successful course inspection at 8am.

Officials at the Midlands circuit see no reason to assess conditions again in light of a favourable 24-hour forecast.

Following 12 millimetres of overnight rainfall, the going on the hurdles track is heavy, while the chase circuit is soft, heavy in places.

The first two flights in the hurdles races on the card are due to be bypassed.
