Further rain on Tuesday night has resulted in Racing NSW stewards recommending that the rail be moved to the 6m position for Day 2 of The Championships, reports Racing Network.

The Australian Turf Club indicated the rail would be in the 4m position due to the significant damage to the inside section of the track but chief steward Ray Murrihy felt more movement was required.

"I think it is the best decision, the track out there has a lovely carpet of grass, it hasn't been galloped on for months," he said.

"If we got more showers it might have put the meeting in jeopardy, asking the horses to go through the cut up section that has now had another inch of rain it would just be virtually bottomless.

"The best idea is to get out beyond doubt, give every horse a chance and that was our strong recommendation to the ATC, in light of what has happened since the barrier draw they should strongly consider shifting the rail another couple of metres."

Murrihy said if the rail was left in the 4m position there is no chance the track would improve out of the heavy range.

"I think it will give us good opportunity to get to a good track now, if we get weather like this until Saturday," he said.

"There is no hope of getting back to slow if you leave the rail where it is, the section from the 900m to the 400m is just going to be a heavy 10."
