Tuesday's meeting at Fakenham goes ahead after the track passed a second inspection.

Clerk of the course David Hunter took an initial look at 8am after temperatures dropped below freezing overnight, but that inspection proved inconclusive, with a second check called for 10.30am.

Hunter was able to give the go-ahead following that inspection and the ground is officially described as soft ahead of a six-race card.
