It has been announced by Horse Racing Ireland that due to the cancellation of the meeting today at Wexford, there will be a replacement meeting at Bettyville on Wednesday 5th December.

Tuesday's programme at Wexford was called off after the track failed an 8am inspection. Heavy rain on Monday had left the ground partially waterlogged and a further 11 millimetres of rain fell overnight.

The replacement meeting will close for entries on Thursday 29th November with declarations to run to be made by 10am on Tuesday 4th December. Full details of the programme of races will be announced in due course.
