Officials at Chepstow are hoping to reschedule the Coral Welsh Grand National after Wednesday’s fixture was abandoned due to a waterlogged track.
The three-mile-five-furlong heat was due to be the feature event on a seven-race card but rain and snow over the last two days has left the track unraceable.
The Chepstow team is already discussing the possibility of rescheduling the Welsh National, with January 6 a proposed date.
The track tweeted: “Due to 60 millimetres of rain and snow in the last 48 hours, it is with regret that the Coral Welsh Grand National has been abandoned.
“Discussions are underway with the BHA to reschedule the race for Saturday, January 6. Further details to follow.”
Thursday’s meeting at Leopardstown, meanwhile, is subject to a precautionary inspection at 7.30am on raceday.
The threat of overnight frost and fog has prompted officials to call an early check ahead of a card that is due to feature the Leopardstown Christmas Chase and the Squared Financial Christmas Hurdle.
The track tweeted: “With the possibility of frost and fog tonight, there will be a precautionary inspection at 7.30am on Thursday morning (December 28) and all race time alterations will be confirmed.”
