Due to an adverse weather forecast there will be a precautionary inspection of the course at Fairyhouse at 8am on Monday to determine whether racing can go ahead the following day.

The ground at the Co Meath venue is currently raceable with the going heavy, soft in places.

Inspections will also take place at Tramore and Punchestown at 8am tomorrow morning to determine whether racing can go ahead at those two venues tomorrow.

Might Bite To Prove His Worth Next Season

There is not much attention given to national hunt racing in the summer months, by punters or by the media. It is, of course, understandable given that our attention is focused on the flat season: the action at Royal Ascot, the Classics and the rest of the elements that define the summer racing season. Some punters might have a dabble at an ante post bet for Cheltenham next year, but by and large we forget about it until the autumn.
