The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has programmed a provisional All-Weather mixed card for Lingfield Park on Sunday 22 December, in an attempt to safeguard this fixture against abandonment. This will consist of the National Hunt Flat race originally scheduled, an additional National Hunt Flat race, plus five new Flat races. Lingfield Park’s going is currently described as heavy and with significant further rain forecast, an inspection of the Turf course is planned for Thursday afternoon.
All additional races will be free to enter and a final decision on whether the existing Steeple Chases and Hurdle races are abandoned and the provisional races activated, will be made by 3pm on Thursday 19 December.
The provisional races will close at noon on Thursday 19 December.
If the Turf races are subsequently abandoned and these races are activated, declarations should be made by 10am on Friday 20 December.
A provisional, revised running order is as follows:
12.30 22328 1m 5f “Junior” Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race (Class 6)
1.00 22327 2m Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race (Class 6)
1.30 69115 8f 2yo Maiden Stakes (Class 5)
2.00 69113 8f 3+ 46-52 Handicap Stakes (Class 6)
2.30 69111 7f 3+ 76-90 Handicap Stakes (Class 3)
3.00 69112 2m 3+ 66-85 Handicap Stakes (Class 4)
