Warwick given green light

Friday afternoon's National Hunt fixture at Warwick has survived an 8am inspection and goes ahead as scheduled.

The possibility of a sharp frost had been an issue, but overnight temperatures remained over freezing.

The going is soft.

Clerk of the course Sulekha Varma tweeted: "All good. No frost overnight or this morning. Will start removing covers from 9am.

"Temperatures remained above freezing overnight and through dawn."
