Lingfield - green light for Monday card

Monday's meeting at Lingfield went ahead as planned after the track passed a precautionary inspection.

Clerk of the course George Hill had planned to check conditions at 8am, but was able to give a favourable verdict earlier than expected. The ground is described as heavy.

There will be no racing in Ireland on Monday though, with Punchestown called off following a 7.45am inspection.

The Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board tweeted: "Following a course inspection and having consulted with Met Eireann, Punchestown today is cancelled.

"Due to Status Orange wind warning currently in place for Kildare area and with winds due at their strongest during race times, the fixture is cancelled due to safety concerns."

Horse Racing Ireland later announced the Punchestown fixture would be rescheduled for Wednesday.

The meeting reverts back to the entries with weights stage, with fresh declarations to run to be made by 10am on Tuesday.

The time of the first race will be 12.30pm, with free admission for all racegoers.

Due to the ongoing storms in Ireland the meeting at Fairyhouse on Tuesday is subject to an 8am inspection.

By 3pm on Monday eight millimetres of rain had fallen but plenty more was forecast on already heavy ground.
