Thursday's meeting at Clonmel has been abandoned due to the cold spell of weather.

Officials made the decision to call off the card early on Wednesday morning.

A statement from the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board said: "The IHRB has announced that the fixture at Clonmel on Thursday, March 1 has been abandoned due to an adverse weather forecast and hazardous driving conditions."

Races at Dundalk, scheduled for Friday, have also been cancelled for the same reasons.

Navan, scheduled for a day's races on Saturday, is currently unfit for racing due to snowfall and is being monitored.
