Cheltenham racecourse officials have said they are confident the forthcoming festival will not be affected by sub-zero temperatures.
The BBC's Joe Wilson has been looking around the course which is covered in sheeting to try and protect it from the freeze.
Course spokesman Andy Clifton said: "It's perfect racing conditions once we have the covers off".
