A RIVAL operator has until today to make a possible takeover bid for Doncaster Racecourse.

Arena Leisure has allowed the Reuben Brothers until this evening to say whether or not they are interested in making an offer for the business.

Originally the brothers, who own a number of racecourses across the country, had until December 16 to make their intentions clear.

Arena owns seven venues, including Doncaster.

Talk of a possible takeover for the firm started in September.

Since then the two parties have been in talks.
