Tramore are to hold a 3pm course inspection today to assess the chances of racing ahead of their fixture on Friday, 1st January.

The course was unfit for racing on Monday and with heavy rain due to hit the country last night the situation was being monitored.

Fairyhouse are also due to race on New Year's Day and the ground remains heavy there after 12.7mm of rain overnight. The forecast remains unsettled for the area.

Punchestown are due to race tomorrow and the course remains heavy after 25mm of rain overnight.

The forecast is for more rain this morning, clearing before lunchtime. It is set to be colder with showers tomorrow.

The ground at Thurles is currently heavy ahead of their fixture on Monday January 4th.

Pass a fitting winner of the last

On a day when their horses did them proud, it was fitting to see the Gigginstown House Stud colours pass the Ryanair hoarding in front, Patrick Mullins sporting the maroon and white livery on Lucky Pass in the bumper backed by the leading carrier at Leopardstown.
