Wexford remains soft to heavy, heavy in places ahead of their rescheduled fixture tomorrow.

The meeting was originally to be held on Tuesday November 20th but was lost due to waterlogging.

The forecast is for a risk of showers today while tomorrow is to be cold and generally dry.

The ground at Punchestown is currently soft to heavy ahead of the fixture on Sunday.

Cork also race on Sunday and the ground remains soft on the hurdle track and soft to heavy on the chase course following 4mm of rain overnight.

Clonmel is currently heavy, soft in places on the hurdles track and soft, heavy in places on the chase course ahead of the meeting on Thursday.

As pointed out previously, this is nothing more than a bit of harmless fun that some folk on both sides of the Irish Sea take a little too seriously.
