Bath's 28 August fixture transferred to Chelmsford City

The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has today announced that due to the continuing spell of dry weather, Bath's 28 August fixture has been transferred to Chelmsford City.

Entry and declaration stages for the seven-race evening fixture will remain unchanged with entries closing on Wednesday 22 August at 12 noon and declarations at the 48 hour stage. 

An equivalent race programme to that originally scheduled has been transferred to Chelmsford, with the exception of the 1m4f Class 5 handicap which has dropped back to a 1m2f Class 6 handicap due to the unavailability of a 1m4f start at Chelmsford.  

Race programme details and further fixture information will be available via the racing admin site www2.racingadmin.co.uk in due course.
