Friday's meetings at Chepstow, Lingfield and Wolverhampton fell victim to the weather, despite all-weather surfaces at the latter two venues as a thick covering of snow blanketed the country. The evening meeting at Dundalk was not affected.

Saturday meetings at Ascot, Taunton and Haydock have also been abandoned. Kempton and Lingfield face late weather checks.
