Today's meeting at Lingfield has been called off after falling victim to the Arctic conditions that have hit the south of England this week.

The assistant clerk of the course, Fergus Cameron, said yesterday: "After holding two inspections the stewards have decided to abandon the meeting.

"There is still snow on the course and, although there was a slight thaw this morning, the temperature has dropped this afternoon."

Lingfield is the fourth National Hunt meeting to be lost this season.

n The following horses are doubly engaged today: Easthorpe (Haydock 1.00, first preference) (Cheltenham 1.20, second preference); Monsieur Le Cure (Haydock 2.00) (Cheltenham 2.35); Black Humour (Doncaster 1.45) (Haydock 2.00). Horses will appear at their second preference only if the first preference meeting is abandoned.
