Ascot’s abandoned meeting on Wednesday has been switched to Kempton’s all-weather track the same day.

Original entries for the six-day card, featuring the Group Three Sagaro Stakes, will stand. Final declarations close at 10am tomorrow.

Though prize money for each race has been reduced, the fixture will still offer a total cash fund of £100,000, which is being met by the Levy Board.

The big race itself, the Sagaro Stakes, is one of two races on the card carrying the Levy Board title.

Paul Fisher, group managing director for Jockey Club Racecourses, said:

Kempton Park is delighted to be able to help reschedule such a high quality fixture at short notice.

“This is a great example of racing working together for the benefit of Horsemen and the racing public; and we are grateful for the proactive support of Levy Board and the British Horseracing Authority and Ascot racecourse.”

Levy Board operations director Alan Delmonte said: “We are very pleased that this high quality fixture will continue to be run and have made a further investment into our already planned prize money contribution to the day, taking the total to £100,000.”

The first race is due off at 2pm while the last, the Handicap will be divided if necessary.
