Punchestown set for Monday morning inspection

Officials at Punchestown have called an inspection for 8am ahead of Monday's meeting.

An adverse weather forecast is currently causing concern for their New Year's Eve meeting.

Horse Racing Ireland tweeted: "Punchestown to hold 8am precautionary inspection ahead of Monday meeting due to adverse weather forecast."

Elsewhere, Monday's meeting at Warwick has been abandoned due to a waterlogged track.

Clerk of the course Sulekha Varma inspected the track at 8.30am today but found conditions to be unraceable after 11 millimetres of rain on Saturday.

This afternoon's meeting at Taunton goes ahead after the track passed a morning inspection.

Officials called an early check as a downpour on Saturday left parts of the course unraceable.

However, despite a total of 27 millimetres of rain in the last 24 hours, the track is fit to race with the going described as heavy.
