Fairyhouse postponed again

Fairyhouse's high-profile meeting on Saturday has been cancelled yet again with the track still unraceable.

The card, featuring three Grade One events, was originally due to take place on November 28, but has been rescheduled a number of times due to the cold snap. The fixture has now been moved again to next Wednesday and clerk of the course Peter Roe is keeping his fingers crossed it will finally be able to go ahead.

"We've had to cancel for Saturday as we're still unraceable, but we hope to be able to race next Wednesday," said Roe.

"The trainers and the sponsors are all keen for us to try to get this meeting on and we've had great support that way, so we'll do our very best."

Fairyhouse's switch to Wednesday means the meeting due to take place at Clonmel that day will now take place on Thursday.

Horse Racing Ireland have also announced that the cancelled meeting at Gowran this Friday has been rescheduled to take place on December 22.
