Fairyhouse race on Saturday with a pair of Grade 2s headlining the seven race programme.

The Grade 2 Winning Fair Juvenile Hurdle starts off proceedings whilst the Grade 2 At The Races Chase is set for 2.35.

It'll be the main track in use on Saturday and the going is currently described as heavy, soft in places.

On Wednesday Fairyhouse will hold another meeting – on the inside track – and it is described as heavy there.

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.
