Thursday's meeting at Clonmel has been cancelled due to a waterlogged track.
An 8am inspection was called for Wednesday on Tuesday as parts of the track were unfit for racing following recent heavy rain.
Unfortunately there was a further six millimetres of rain overnight and officials were left with an easy decision to make.

As a consequence the fixture scheduled for Thursday, 15th February has been cancelled."Reopens The fixture was later rescheduled to take place at Clonmel next Tuesday, February 20.Fresh entries for the meeting, which will now be a seven-race card, will close at noon on Thursday, with declarations to run to be made by 10am on Monday.
