Although the Somerset circuit is raceable, course officials are taking no chances.
Overnight temperatures are set to drop to -2C, but the inspection has been called in case the frost is sharper than has been forecast.
Clerk of the course Barry Johnson said: "I'm very confident we'll be fine - we'll be OK with -2C - but some forecasts are predicting -4C.
"There's no frost in the ground now, but the ground is quite wet. It's very much a precautionary inspection."
