Snow-covered Naas inspects on Saturday
SUNDAY'S meeting at Naas is in doubt due to snow. The track was covered in snow on Friday morning and an inspection has been called for Saturday at 10am
The Goffs Slaney Novice Hurdle, a Grade 2 event over 2m4f, is the main event on the card with the Willie Mullins-trained Quel Esprit, unbeaten in two startsover hurdles, among the nine declared.
Ruby Walsh, who rides Quel Esprit, is also due to ride Sports Line, winner of his only start over fences and who missed an engagement at Limerick on December 26, for Mullins in the 2m Irish Stallion Farms EBF Novice Chase.
