The British Horseracing Authority has announced what they are calling a risk-managed return to racing.
It means racing WILL take place from Wednesday this week, but only with strict biosecurity controls in place.
It had meant racing at Newcastle last Friday and on Monday at Catterick were cancelled, but all meetings as of Wednesday will now go ahead.
“From the testing and analysis conducted the disease appears to be contained at present. The BHA veterinary committee believe that the swift controls on movement that were put in place have clearly helped to restrict the spread of this virus.
“Clearly, there is some risk associated with returning to racing. This risk has been assessed and, based on the evidence – and ensuring biosecurity measures are in place – the level of risk is viewed as acceptable.”
This Evening and Tonight:
High cloud at first this evening with the moon appearing a little hazy.
Cloud then thickening from the west onto the Pennines and Cheviots later, perhaps producing some light rain or drizzle.
Isolated frost in the east. Minimum temperature 1 °C.

A deep area of low pressure is expected to track across northern Britain later on Friday and through early Saturday.
Gales will become widespread later on Friday, persisting well into Saturday whilst becoming more westerly.
Whilst some places may miss the worst of the winds, inland gusts of 50 mph are expected quite widely, with some places having gusts in excess of 60 mph, more especially across the north of the warning area on Saturday.
