Clarence House at Cheltenham
The Clarence House Chase will be run at Cheltenham next Saturday following the abandonment of this afternoon's high-profile fixture at Ascot.
Un De Sceaux (far side): Could now be running at Cheltenham next week.
The Grade One contest was due to be the main event on an attractive card in Berkshire, with Irish challenger Un De Sceaux set to bid for back-to-back victories.
However, the meeting was called off following an early-morning inspection and the feature event will now be part of a bumper nine-race card on Festival Trials Day at Cheltenham next weekend.
The OLBG.com Mares' Hurdle has also been rescheduled and will be run at Huntingdon on Friday.
A British Horseracing Authority statement read: "Following the cancellation of racing at Ascot, the BHA can confirm that the Clarence House Chase will be run at Cheltenham on January 28.
"In addition, the OLBG Mares' Hurdle will be run at Huntingdon on Friday, January 27.
"Both races will be reopened with entries closing on Tuesday, January 24."
