The British Horseracing Authority has today announced two provisional new hurdle races at Wincanton’s fixture on 9 May. This is because, in light of the current going and weather forecast, the ground may not be suitable for the three steeple chases currently programmed.
The current going description at Wincanton is currently Good to Firm, Good in places with limited rain forecast.
As such one hurdle race and one NHF race have been provisionally programmed. Entries for these two contests as well as the seven existing races will close at 12 noon, Friday 3 May.
A decision will be taken as soon as possible to see if the original seven-race card can go ahead, or whether the three existing chases are replaced by the two new contests to make a six-race card.
Declarations will be made as usual by 10am on Wednesday 8 May.
Full race details and conditions for all existing and provisional races, as well as further fixture information, will be available via the BHA Racing Admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk shortly.
