Market Rasen gets go-ahead but Fairyhouse is called off due to snow

The scene at Fairyhouse last month, the rescheduled fixture takes place today
1 of 1

Snow has claimed today's meeting at Fairyhouse but Market Rasen has avoided going the same way after passing a 10am inspection. 

An inch of snow and the poor forecast caused Fairyhouse to abandon and although Market Rasen has not received quite those levels, officials had to look twice before giving the fixture the go-ahead.

After the second inspection, Market Rasen issued the following update: "Racing goes ahead. Small amount of melting snow remaining, should be clear by first race."

The ground has been described as soft, heavy in places and there is some quality action with Three Musketeers, winner of the Grade 2 Berkshire Novices Chase at Newbury in 2015, the pick of the runners in the graduation chase, on a card which also features a Listed mares' bumper.

There should be plenty of pointers from the meeting at Newbury, while Lingfield and Newcastle, in the evening, provide the all-weather action.

What to read

This week's Tales of Redemption series has been an excellent read and today it is the turn of Padraig Beggy, who was propelled from relative obscurity last summer to win the Derby. He recalls his troubling time overseas before his Epsom triumph with David Jennings.

The busy Jennings has also found time to produce a list of possible dark horses for the Dublin Racing Festival.


What to watch

It's going to be all things Cheltenham from now till mid March so the Postcast team have begun their build-up by looking at the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The best of Racing Post Sport

The latest FA Cup third round replays includes the match between Chelsea and Norwich which will be shown live on BBC1 tonight.

Dan Childs predicts the likely outcome of their clash at Stamford Bridge.


Final thought 

Leopardstown looks to have pulled off a masterstroke in creating the Dublin Racing Festival which has attracted nearly all Ireland's best known, and looks like it may succeed without compromising Cheltenham Festival ambitions.
