The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that due to the continuing spell of dry weather, Bath’s 3 August fixture has been transferred to Wolverhampton.
Entries will close as previously at 12 noon on Saturday 28 July, with declarations at the 48 hour stage on Wednesday 1 August.
The race programme will be equivalent to the one originally planned and further fixture information will be available via the racing admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk in due course.
Paul Johnson, Head of Racing at the BHA, said:
“As the dry spell continues we continue to monitor how the weather is affecting the Fixture List in conjunction with racecourses and Horsemen.
“Whilst we are aware that fast conditions at Bath are ideal for some horses, the continued dry spell has now led to the appearance of hard in the going description and we believe that the sport is best served by the next fixture being transferred to an alternative racecourse.
“Our thanks go to ARC and the Levy Board for their assistance in facilitating the transfer.”
