How is it decided who stages the Jump Replacement fixtures?

04 Apr 14

The Racing Department invites all Jump racecourses to apply to stage these fixtures, if geographical considerations are not considered important. Following consultation with the Inspectorate, the fixtures are then allocated with a view to providing opportunities in those regions particularly impacted by abandonments, and/or those regions to which the greatest number of trainers are likely to have access. The programmes for these fixtures are put together with considerable care following a review of the latest relevant data and discussions with trainers.
