Today's scheduled meeting at Navan has been cancelled as the course is waterlogged.

An early morning inspection was called due to an adverse weather forecast and, with further rain again last night, officials had little choice but to call off the six-race hurdle and bumper card.

Racing is due to take place at Thurles tomorrow, with a seven-race National Hunt meeting getting underway at 12.30pm.

The ground at Leopardstown is now soft following 7mm of rain overnight.

Halford/Foley/Lordan Crowned champions!

Group 1 winner Michael Halford finished 2012 on the 31 winner mark at Dundalk, ensuring he easily won the Crowne Plaza sponsored Leading Trainer's Award for the year, with his stable jockey Shane Foley sharing the Jockeys' equivalent with Wayne Lordan.
