This afternoon's meeting at Limerick has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Officials assessed conditions at 8am but found the course to be unraceable.

Horse Racing Ireland tweeted: "Limerick cancelled today. Track unfit for racing due to waterlogging."

Officials will now check the track at 8am on Sunday ahead of that afternoon's meeting.

The feature Shannon Airport Novice Chase, a Grade Two which had attracted classy types like Avant Tout, Free Expression and Outlander, has transferred to Sunday's meeting to form an eight-race card beginning at noon.
