The British Horseracing Authority has confirmed the Clarence House Chase will happen at Cheltenham subsequent Saturday.
It is the third time since 2013 that Ascot, the race’s house, has been deserted as a result of climate and Cheltenham every week later has stepped into the breach to stage the race.
The BHA had been eager to thank the Horserace Betting Levy Board for its contribution to the prize cash, with £90,000 up for grabs.
Entries will revert to the early-closing stage, with confirmations made on Monday morning adopted by declarations on Thursday.
Punters had been trying ahead to a conflict between final yr’s Champion Chasewinner Energumene and the Arkle hero Edwardstone – and after connections of the previous confirmed earlier within the week they had been eager to run if the race was rearranged, Alan King joined swimsuit.
He stated: “We’ll go there, that is the plan. If it hadn’t been rescheduled after which Newbury was off (Game Spirit Chase) then we actually are in bother.
“I’m very grateful they’ve put it again on and that would be the plan.”
