Fairyhouse switch meetings

Horse Racing Ireland have announced that two scheduled Fairyhouse fixtures have been moved to alternative venues due to continuing remedial work on the inside track.

The February 9 meeting will now be held at Punchestown and the card scheduled for February 22 will now be held at Navan.

All other meetings scheduled for Fairyhouse are unaffected and will proceed as planned on the main track.

Fairyhouse manager Peter Roe said: "We have been undertaking remedial work on the inside track since problems were highlighted at our meeting on November 3.

"Unfortunately, the adverse weather conditions through December delayed this work and it has not healed quickly enough to host the two midweek February meetings which were both scheduled for the inside track.

"With the help of consultants and ground specialists STRI, we continue to work on the problem areas and we are happy with the progress being made."
