Prior to the start of the meeting, Stewards inspected the track with all riders engaged in the first race to discuss an area of concern near the 400 metres, where the surface presented quite shifty and loose under foot due to aeration of the track pulling out the cover of grass in this section. Following this inspection it was agreed upon to run the first race and then assess the condition of the track thereafter.
