Wednesday's two races at the Isle of Man TT were cancelled because of wet roads on the circuit.

The second Supersport race and the sidecar event fell victim to the weather - both races will now take place on Thursday.

Michael Dunlop hopes to improve on third in the first Supersport race.

He said. "I had tyre problems on the first lap on Monday and my time was not good enough. I'll make up for that and I'm going for it from the start."

The Supersport race will start at 1500 BST on Thursday.

Yorkshire rider Ian Hutchinson goes for another victory, having secured a hat-trick in the Isle of Man.

Hutchinson won the Superbike, Supersport race one and Superstock classes.

He claimed a race record after seeing off fellow English rider Guy Martin by three seconds in the Supersports.

The Bingley rider now has Phillip McCallan's record of four wins in a week firmly in his sights.

Scot Keith Amor set a new lap record of 126.90mph on his final circuit on Monday and should contend again on his Honda if he gets off to a good start.

Ryan Farquhar won 600cc races in 2004 and 2005 and went close to sealing a third TT victory in Monday's Superstock race, but he believes his best chance of a win has gone.

"I knew before I came here that the Superstock was my best chance of victory but I'll try my hardest in the second Supersport and maybe I'll make it into the top six," said the Dungannon rider.

William Dunlop was sixth on Monday, his best-ever result on the Mountain Course, and he should be well to the fore again.

The three-lap Sidecar B race will now be run at 1300 on Thursday, followed by the TT Zero race for electric bikes over one lap at 1700.
