Perry Barr racing manager Martin Seal has been in touch to advise that there has been a change in dates for the St.Leger.
He said:”Following discussions with the GBGB, as Newcastle’s Cat 2 Great North Run over 670m has moved a week later to accommodate some other changes before it, with the Final on Thursday 25th October, we have decided to move the dates of the St Leger back a week in the calendar to endeavour to accommodate connections of those greyhounds which might considering entering both competitions.
“Therefore, the first round of the Leger will now take place on Sunday 4th November, with the semi-finals a week later on Sunday 11th November and the final on the evening of Saturday 17thNovember. All other details remain the same.
“Open races over the Leger trip of 710m have been advertised for 22nd September as well as 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th October.”
