Cheltenham Clerk of The Course Simon Claisse is confident that the track will be fine for this weekend's meeting after around 60 groundstaff completed the covering of the course by 4pm yesterday .

Claisse said "The temperature has been about 3C today and we would have been raceable by about 1pm," and added that two hurdle races had been scheduled on the end of Friday's card to allow work to start re-covering the course for Saturday's meeting before racing finished.

Meanwhile Champion trainer Paul Nicholls has expressed some concern about the prospect of fast ground for Master Minded in the Keith Prowse Hospitality Tingle Creek Chase which will be ran on Saturday's card . Nicholls confirmed that the dual Champion Chase hero is in good form but warned "I wouldn't want the ground too quick, that's something I would just worry about" .

Master Minded is the current favourite for the 2011 Queen Mother Champion Chase at the Cheltenham Festival at best odds of 3/1 with 888Sport .
