Racing has lost one of its last three pre-Christmas meetings as today's card at Kelso has been abandoned because of frost. But hopes are high that Lingfield and Uttoxeter will survive to provide punters with a final chance to bet before a three-day break in the fixture-list.

A total of seven full meetings have now been lost to the weather during the current jumps season.

At Uttoxeter the clerk of the course, David McAllister, was "cautiously optimistic" that today's meeting will go ahead despite a bleak forecast.
