(Class 6) Stuart Middleton, BHA Racing Manager said:

“It’s fantastic news that we’ve been able to get this race on at such short notice. We’re entering new territory here in transferring a fixture at short notice and adding a replacement Grade 2 race so soon after it has been abandoned, but all the trainers we spoke to have been so positive and the team at Kempton have been brilliant. Let’s just hope the weather’s kind to us as Kempton are holding an 8am inspection.”
