The all-weather meeting scheduled for this afternoon at Lingfield has been lost to the weather, but there was good news for racing fans with the announcement that Naas and Kempton both passed morning inspections.
Neil Mackenzie Ross, clerk of the course at Lingfield, said: "We already had the snow from yesterday and then we had further snow overnight, so unfortunately we've had to abandon."
