BHA confirms earlier start time for Kempton Park on Wednesday 8 March

06 Mar 2023 BHA Features

The BHA can confirm that Kempton Park on Wednesday 8 March will move forward to a 15.05 start.

This follows a request from Jockey Club Racecourses who have advised that their forecast is for potential snow later in the evening and therefore the decision has been taken to give the fixture the best possible chance of taking place.

The new running order is as follows:

15:05 – @unibetracing Cheltenham Preview Tonight Apprentice Handicap (London Mile Series Qualifier) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-80) 1m
15:35 – Unibet Supporting International Women’s Day Restricted Maiden Stakes (Horses In Bands B/C/D) (GBB) Cl5 (3-4yo) 1m4f
16:05 – Unibet Proudly Supports Handicap Cl5 (4yo+ 0-70) 7f
16:35 – Unibet Non-Runner No-Bet All Cheltenham Races Handicap (London Sprint Series Qualifier) Cl4 (3yo 0-85) 6f
17:05 – Extra Place Races Throughout Cheltenham Handicap (London Stayers’ Series Qualifier) Cl4 (4yo+ 0-85) 2m
17:35 – Unibet Proudly Supporting Women In Racing Handicap (London Sprint Series Qualifier) Cl5 (4yo+ 0-70) 6f

Connections will be able to declare a non-runner penalty free due to this change in post-declaration race times.
