The National Hunt meeting scheduled for Ayr on Tuesday has been abandoned, with areas of the track unraceable and no prospect of improvement given weather forecasts.

Officials made the decision after an inspection on Monday afternoon, with the ground described as heavy and yellow weather warnings in place for rain overnight and snow on raceday morning.

Clerk of the course Graeme Anderson tweeted: "RACING ABANDONED @ayrracecourse areas of the track NOT raceable at present with no chance of improvement .Yellow Warning of snow and rain tonight & tomorrow."
