Monday card at Stratford lost to waterlogging and Fairyhouse inspect

Waterlogged racecourse
Waterlogged racecourse

Monday's meeting at Stratford has been abandoned because of a waterlogged track -and there will be a morning inspection at Fairyhouse because of further rain forecast overnight.

Stratford was due to stage a six-race jumping card, but officials were left with no option but to call off proceedings after 16 millimetres of rain over the weekend left the course unfit for racing.

Stratford's abandonment leaves two scheduled Monday fixtures in Britain at Carlisle and Kempton.

In Ireland, the going at Fairyhouse is currently heavy and fit for racing, but an inspection will take place at 7.30am because of the forecast for more rain.
