Racing at Fairyhouse looks set to go ahead this weekend

Fairyhouse report no problems with the weather as they build-up to a top-class weekend of racing featuring three Grade Ones on Sunday.

The fixture has been badly affected by the weather in recent seasons, but general manager Peter Roe has no such concerns this week.

"The forecast is we are dry now all the way through to Sunday for a cracking weekend's racing," he told At The Races.

"The Met Office are saying it's going to be cold but not severe. Three years ago we were snowed out for this fixture.

"I think we will be just slightly below freezing at night and up to three or four degrees and we are on fresh ground which will take the frost a lot better.

"This fixture in the past has been rained off, snowed off, hurricaned off, but this year it looks like we are getting the perfect run in for a perfect weekend of top-class racing."
