Thursday's meeting at Thurles has been cancelled due to the current spell of wet weather.

Racegoers battle the elements

The track is suffering problems with the ground after recent rain and the forecast is not due to improve.

Horse Racing Ireland has announced that the cancelled meeting at Thurles on Thursday will now be staged on Wednesday, February 13 to form a two-day fixture.

However, the programme for both days has now changed.

The meeting on Wednesday will consist of seven races, an all-hurdle and bumper card, while the meeting on Thursday will have six races over fences.

Fresh entries for both meetings close at 12 noon on February 7.
