The British Horseracing Authority has announced an additional National Hunt fixture at Ayr on Wednesday.

Ayr: Will stage extra meeting on Wednesday

Although many parts of the country are currently covered by snow, the Scottish track remains raceable, prompting the BHA to bring in an extra meeting.

Clerk of the course Emma Marley said: "With racing caught in the grip of snow and frost which has swept the rest of the country, we are delighted to be in a position to stage an additional fixture."

Entries for the six-race card will close at noon on Saturday, with declaration time 10am on Tuesday.
