SUNDAY'S racemeetings at both Navan and Limerick have been cancelled due to snow.

An 8am inspection on Sunday found that the track at Navan was unfit for racing due to a covering of snow. Navan also lost their March 3rd fixture due to snow and an attempt to reschedule that meeting five days later failed to come off.

Limerick escaped the overnight snow and was raceable on Sunday morning. By mid-morning it was announced that the first race would be delayed by half an hour due to road conditions, and by 1pm the meeting was called off.

Limerick is also due to race on Monday but this depends on an 8am inspection. Tuesday's Clonmel fixture is also subject to an 8am Monday inspection. The track had a light covering of snow on Sunday morning.

There is now no racing taking place on Sunday in either Ireland or Britain, as the fixtures scheduled for both Carlisle and Ffos Las have been called off.

Down Royal is also due to race on Monday, having postponed racing from Saturday. The track was said to be heavy but raceable on Sunday morning though there was a risk of snow showers on Sunday morning.

Sunday's North Kilkenny point-to-point at Ballyragget has also been cancelled but the Duhallow meeting in Dromahane goes ahead.

Isolated snow showers are forecast for Sunday night in the east and north of Ireland. Monday should be a largely dry day with just a few scattered wintry showers. Frost is expected on Tuesday but temperatures are expected to rise from Wednesday.
