Following the cancellation of Saturday's scheduled meeting at Fairyhouse due to waterlogging, Horse Racing Ireland has announced that this meeting will now take place on Monday week, February 8th.

Fresh entries for this meeting will close by 12 noon on Wednesday, February 3rd with declarations to run to be made by 10am on Saturday, February 6th. The time of the first race will be 1.20pm.

Saturday’s meeting was cancelled due to an unraceable track.

A first inspection ahead of the card, which was set to feature the Grade Three Race Displays Mares Novice Hurdle, was carried out at 3pm on Friday, with officials deciding to take another look at 7.30am on Saturday due to the forecast.

An Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board statement said: “Following an inspection this morning at Fairyhouse, parts of the track were found to be unfit for racing after 12mm of rain overnight and the meeting scheduled to take place today (Saturday) has been cancelled.”

Sunday’s meeting at Naas is also under threat, with another classy fixture subject to an inspection at 7.30am.
