Tomorrow's meeting at Market Rasen, which begins at 2.15pm with the Health Scheme Selling Hurdle, will go ahead after an inspection this morning, but the three steeplechase events will not be run.

It was determined at today's inspection that the chase course was unfit for racing tomorrow, but the fixture will take place as planned with the novices' hurdle event and the national hunt flat race splitting their cards to fill the gaps left by the abandonment of the chase contests.

Charlie Moore, Clerk of the Course at Market Rasen, said: "We have dropped the three chases, there are too many wet and false patches. But the hurdles course is in grand nick - we are not even talking about a precautionary inspection."


Sunshine Street, a five-year-old colt formerly trained in Ireland by Noel Meade, last night won the Grade One San Juan Capistrano Handicap at Santa Anita in California.

Sunshine Street is best remembered in this country for his heroic effort in the 1998 Vodafone Derby at Epsom Downs, where he finished fourth beaten 2.75 lengths by the Luca Cumani-trained High-Rise.

Now trained by Neil Drysdale, Sunshine Street has done extremely well in the United States, with last night's success at Santa Anita completing his third success at the Californian racetrack.
