Today is an absolutely crucial day for the BHA. If they don’t take strong, decisive action to resume racing on Wednesday, this situation is sure to drag on for much longer. Equine flu is endemic and it is naive to aim for zero positives in a large sample. Racing has to return. https://t.co/3eYjIb9Zpi
Please note: The BHA will issue a procedural update regarding the equine influenza cases early this afternoon. A decision whether racing will return on Wednesday will be made later this evening. More detail to follow in the update.
News breaking that Nick Rust has agreed a withdrawal agreement from the shutdown with the Veterinary 27, however having brought this back to the House of BHA there are objections to the Tackstop imposed.

"As part of the return, the BHA has developed a risk framework which allows us to categorise trainers by the level of risk they have been exposed to. The ability of runners to return to racing from those yards will depend on the risk categories the yards are placed in"#equineflu
Been some mickey taking, but well played to @BHAPressOffice, specifically the media team. It is a world I know well, and they have been open, informative and clear throughout this process. Irrespective of whether BHA have got things right or not, communication has been superb.

@attila_barna This is one of the most interesting Tweets I’ve read on the subject. There’s good and bad on both sides, but the IHRB have handled this very well under the circumstances. I’m 100% sure their actions today were to give the BHA the necessary push.
(Reuters) - The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) said on Monday that horse racing in Britain, halted last week after several cases of equine influenza, will resume on Wednesday. https://t.co/qXDCylGPAS
@olibellracing@BHAPressOffice The BHA are crucified on a daily basis, they got this spot-on, one or two trainers expressed "different views" but it's raised significant "re-awareness" of equine flu, hoping they all pull together and this is viewed historically as a "one-off event". See you on tv Saturday AM !
The British Horseracing Authority (BHA) have announced a "risk-managed return to racing" will take place from Wednesday following a six-day shutdown because of equine influenza. https://t.co/OBvT3AypJx
