The twilight harness meeting scheduled for Hobart next Sunday has been switched to an afternoon timeslot.

The meeting will receive full coverage on Sky1.

Harness stakes also have received a boost over the next five months.

From this weekend the minimum stakes for all Sunday twilight races will rise from $7000 to $7500, except claiming races that will rise from $5000 to $6500.

Sires Stakes heats will increase to $10,000 and 17 feature races that were advertised at $8000 will increase to $10,000.

The increases will be funded by money saved from abandoned and deleted races over the past seven months.
