Gowran fixture subject to precautionary inspection

Gowran Park

Saturday's meeting at Gowran Park is subject to a precautionary inspection at 7.30am due to the threat of overnight rain.

The County Kilkenny circuit is scheduled to stage an eight-race card including Bookmakers Leinster National, which was moved from Sunday's meeting at Naas due to the chase track at the latter venue being unfit for racing.

Conditions at Gowran Park were described as raceable but heavy on Friday afternoon, and Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board officials felt it prudent to announce an early-morning check for Saturday.
