The Camogie All-Stars teams will be announced at a virtual event on Saturday, the 6th of March.

RACING

The Gordon Elliott-trained Delta Work has been ruled out of next month’s Cheltenham Gold Cup.

The horse was last seen in defeat at The Dublin Racing Festival when finishing third behind Kemboy.

Elliott says that disappointing showing has led to a premature end to Delta Works’s season.

Jack Kennedy brought his winning form to Fairyhouse on Monday where he partnered the Gordon Elliott-trained Grand Paradis to take the second division of the two-mile maiden hurdle for owners Andrew and Gemma Brown. It was all very straight forward for the 7/2 chance which pulled nine length clear of the Willie Mullins-trained 6/4 favourite Grand Bornand to give Kennedy his 44th winner of the season.

Kennedy ended the week with a winner at Punchestown on Sunday where he partnered the ML Bloodstock-owned Farmix to a clear-cut success in the rated novice chase. The 4/1 chance went clear before the final fence and easily beat the James Motherway-trained 85/40 favourite Dinny Lacey by five and a half lengths to record his third victory for County Wexford trainer Liz Doyle.

TENNIS

Ashleigh Barty continued her procession to the last-eight - the top seed beat Shelby Rogers in straights to set-up a quarter-final with Karolina Muchova.

But fifth seed Elina Svitolina is out, beaten in three-sets by Jessica Pegula.
