Fontwell will host a full card this afternoon after the course passed an inspection at 11am.

The meeting's chase contests were in doubt after clerk of the course Ed Arkell checked the figure-of-eight course first thing this morning.

While he was happy the hurdle track was fit for racing, the chase course provided concern after three millimetres of rain overnight.

However, at 11am the track got the green light to send all seven races to post. First race is at 1pm.
