As a mark of respect for the funeral ceremony of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, it has been agreed that no racing will take place in Great Britain between 2:45pm and 4:15pm on Saturday 17 April.
As a result, the Coral Scottish Grand National fixture at Ayr and the Dubai Duty Free Spring Trials fixture at Newbury will now be moved from Saturday 17 to the afternoon of Sunday 18 April. Full race times will be finalised tomorrow.
Further arrangements for the race programme and fixtures scheduled for Saturday 17 April and Sunday April 18 will now be as follows:
Races for both the Saturday and the Sunday will enter tomorrow, Monday 12 April, as initially scheduled.
British racing will continue to appropriately reflect the period of national mourning at fixtures through to Saturday 17 April, including wearing of black armbands and flags flying at half-mast.
