Conditions change at Atherstone meeting, 2nd April

Greg Walters and MISTER PHILSON

Due to a clerical error a contradictory set of conditions appears in the printed Planner for the Atherstone meeting on 2nd April and the authorities have approved a change to the conditions as follows:

[x_alert type="muted"]

2ND RACE - 1.35pm The PPORA CLUB MEMBERS Conditions Race, 12st Safety Factor 20

For the ARTHUR MILLER PERPETUAL CHALLENGE BOWL, and Mementoes to the winning Owner and Rider
PRIZE MONEY 1st £160, 2nd £80, 3rd £50

SPECIAL CONDITIONS For horses that are owned by current members of the PPORA and ridden by current members of the PPORA; Owners must be PPORA members by 4pm on the Friday after close of entry, riders at declaration.
PENALTIES For each win on or since 30th May 2015 in a Steeplechase or Hurdle race under the Rules of any recognised Racing Authority (Point-to-Points excepted) 7lb extra; for each win since 1st July 2015 in a Mens, Ladies or Mixed Open Point-to-Point, 5lb extra, and for each win in a Confined or Club Members Point-to-Point in this period 3lb extra.

As you can see the conditions have changed while the penalties have not. For reference the race now has the same Conditions as the equivalent race at the Pytchley meeting.
