UNSUITABLE ground at Hereford has seen Tuesday's jumps card transferred to Worcester on the same day.

The going at Hereford is currently described as good to firm, firm in places and with predominantly dry weather forecast and limited capacity to water the British Horseracing Authority has switched the card.

Emma Marley, the BHA's head of raceday operations, said: "We must always put the welfare of our participants, both equine and human, first and I am confident that Tuesday's meeting at Worcester will be successful based on the fixture transfer between the two courses last month."

The card will reflect the races programmed at Hereford with race distances adjusted to Worcester's race starts and safety factors where necessary.

Entries for the races at Worcester will reopen and close at noon on Saturday and declare as normal at the 24-hour stage on Monday.
