Michael Palm Toft in action.

In-form Danish racer Michael Palm Toft has been ruled out of the meeting after suffering a knee injury at King’s Lynn last night.

Panthers will operate rider-replacement for Palm Toft at Foxhall, meaning all other members of the side are entitled to take one of his outings.

The Witches have also been forced into a late change as Adam Ellis has withdrawn from his guest booking after a crash at Poole last night.
