BORIS JOHNSON'S resignation means ITV Racing has been forced into a schedule switch.
Popular presenter Oli Bell confirmed the top class action from Newmarket will now be shown on ITV 3.
The action will start at 1.30pm ahead of the first race at 1.50pm.
Oli will present the coverage along with Ed Chamberlin and experts Matt Chapman, Leonna Mayor and Jason Weaver.
The big race of the day from Newmarket will be the Princess of Wales's Close Brothers Stakes at 3.35.
The cameras will also take in the 2.45 contest from Carlisle.
Johnson is calling it quits in No10 after a Cabinet coup and flood of resignations made his leadership untenable.
The PM will tell the nation that he is quitting and a new Tory leader will be in post by the party conference in October.

Mr Johnson will announce his intention to resign in an address to the nation today.
The Sun understands the PM will stay in post until October, at which point he will conduct an "orderly handover".
But some Tory MPs say they want BoJo gone sooner.
They believe Deputy PM Dominic Raab should move in to No10 until a new Conservative leader has been chosen.
A source said: "Boris Johnson has spoken to Graham Brady and agreed to stand down as party leader so that a new leader can be in place by party conference. He will remain as PM until that point."
In an assassination attempt with echoes of Thatcher's removal, Cabinet members yesterday saw the PM individually to demand he quits.
This morning newly appointed Education Secretary Michelle Donelan quit her role after just 36 hours.
New Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi published a letter telling the PM it's time to go.
It came after seven ministers quit before breakfast, meaning the overall number of resignations topped 50.
A race to replace Mr Johnson as Tory leader and British PM will now begin.
