Tomorrow's meeting at Newton Abbot will go ahead following an inspection yesterday. Patches of hard ground had put the fixture in jeopardy but the track was passed fit for racing after being watered.

A spokesman for the track said: "The going is firm, good to firm in places, watering."

Michael Roberts was banned for two days (19 and 21 April) for using his whip in the forehand position in front of the saddle on Village Native at Folkestone yesterday.
