Only Limerick survives after snow claims cards at Carlisle, Ffos Las and Navan
The latest arctic blast has wreaked havoc on Sunday's action in Britain and Ireland, with Carlisle, Ffos Las and Navan forced to cancel due to snow.
Sadly we have had to abandon today’s race meeting due to the snow! Tickets will be refunded automatically. Please call the office if you have any questions #Carlisle #CarlisleRaces #Cumbria pic.twitter.com/zk9hoOv7In— Carlisle Racecourse (@CarlisleRaces) March 18, 2018
At Ffos Las, snow arrived overnight, and clerk of the course Keith Ottesen said: "We've had a covering and it's enough snow for us to not be able to race. It's due to continue through the morning and won't suddenly disappear as the daytime temperature will only be 1-2C."

Snow has also led to the cancellation of Southwell's fixture on Monday. But Limerick has beaten the elements, and Cheltenham kings Gordon Elliott and Davy Russell each have six chances of winners – they team up five times, with a brace of Graded races for mares on the card.
