CHELMSFORD’S 3.30 race was declared void after a mix-up with the starting procedure on a day of drama and farce at the Essex venue.

The race had already been delayed as the high winds of Storm Doris threatened to force the abandonment of the meeting following the first two races of the afternoon.

Following an inspection the meeting got the green light to continue but a malfunction of the starting procedure saw the winner.co.uk Bet & Watch Handicap over six furlongs, in which 3-1 shot Nautical Haven was first past the post, declared a void race.
