Peterborough will once again host the Premier League Fours this season.

The East of England Showground is the traditional home of the meeting which brings together eight clubs on the same day for a packed programme of racing.

The event, one of the most popular on the domestic calendar, has been provisionally pencilled in for Sunday August 3.

Last year, Edinburgh took the honours in blisteringly hot conditions but with the Panthers now competing at Premier League level themselves there should be an added dimension for home supporters.
