Greater Yarmouth’s Friday fixture has been transferred to Wolverhampton Racecourse, the British Horseracing Authority announced on Tuesday. The Yarmouth fixture on Aug. 3 was cancelled after a faller in the home straight, and further assessment of that portion of the course is required. The Aug. 8 card will be an evening eight-race card. Entries will close on Aug. 5 at noon, with 24-hour declarations on Aug. 6. For more information, please visit: www.racingadmin.co.uk.

“Following yesterday’s mid racing incident at Great Yarmouth, we have undertaken a thorough inspection of the whole track with senior racecourse officials and the BHA Inspectorate,” said ARC Racing Director Jon Pullin. “Whilst nothing has come to light from this inspection, including any false ground, we will, in conjunction with BHA, move the fixture scheduled for Friday, 7 Aug. to Wolverhampton, before we resume racing at Great Yarmouth on Tuesday, 25 Aug.”
