The BHA can confirm that provisional declarations can now be tracked live before 10:00 every morning on the fixtures page of the BHA website.
This development, which has been successfully tested over recent months, improves transparency for all customers at the 48-hour declaration stage, with everyone able to see declarations as they are made, as well as the list of provisional runners and riders for each race ahead of official publication.
Tom Byrne, Head of Racing & Betting at the BHA, said: “The addition of live declaration tracking will hopefully help improve the overall customer experience of British racing.
“We expect that this data will become a valuable and informative resource for those working in the sport and racing’s fans, particularly ahead of the Cheltenham Festival next week.”
It is important to note that declarations are not official until they have been formally checked and published after 10:00 on the day of declarations; subsequent changes, including to race times and the final fields, may still occur prior to this point.
To follow live declarations each day, visit the BHA fixtures page.
