Wetherby have cancelled their scheduled races over fences on Monday for a second successive meeting.

A contingency plan was already in place whereby a seven-race card consisting of six hurdle events and a bumper will instead be staged.

“Parts of the chase course are still waterlogged from the rain we had earlier in the week,” said clerk of the course James Sanderson.

“We have a month’s gap to our next meeting so with a bit luck conditions will dry sufficiently to enable us to get some machinery on to the course to carry out some remedial work.”
