The British Horseracing Board is pleased to announce that, with the support and assistance of Victor Chandler Ltd, the Horserace Betting Levy Board, the Executives of Ascot and Kempton Park Racecourses, the BBC and Channel Four, it has made arrangements to transfer the Victor Chandler Chase (Handicap Steeple Chase) from Ascot’s abandoned Friday programme to the Kempton Park card on Saturday, January 23rd. The race retains its Grade 2 status, but will now carry £30,000 in added to stakes prize money.
