Wednesday evening's meeting at Sligo has been abandoned, with an 8am inspection planned for Thursday to determine prospects for that card.

Officials initially reported the track to be fit for action following an 8.30am check, but further heavy rain coupled with an unfavourable forecast has forced them to call off Wednesday's fixture.

A Turf Club statement said: "The Turf Club has announced that the Sligo fixture scheduled for today has been abandoned due to further heavy rain and an unfavourable weather forecast for the remainder of the day. In addition there will be a further 8am course inspection to determine the prospects of racing at Sligo on Thursday."
