Following recent abandonments and with the current weather threatening further fixtures, the BHA has programmed a card of Jumpers’ Bumpers to take place at Wolverhampton on Sunday, January 27th.
The seven race card will be made up of events primarily aimed at Steeple Chasers and Hurdlers.
Ordinarily, under the Rules of Racing, horses which have run in Steeple Chases or Hurdle Races are not eligible to run in National Hunt Flat races, but given the recent disruption to the fixture list, the BHA has modified the Rules with regard to this fixture.
The track will be power harrowed to produce ‘standard to slow’ conditions, with the aim of broadly replicating turf conditions described as the ‘slow side of good’.
The races close at noon on Thursday, January 24th, with declarations to run to be made by 10.00am on Friday, January 25th.
The BHA would like to express its gratitude to the Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) and to Wolverhampton Racecourse for their support in staging this fixture.
Race times will be 1.20, 1.50, 2.25, 3.00, 3.30, 4.05 and 4.40.
