Racing Queensland advises stakeholders of three amendments to the Grading Procedures.
The changes will take effect at race meetings drawn on or after Wednesday 4 September 2019. The timing of implementation is linked to a multi-state Ozchase system development release.
1) Class 1 Eligibility
The Class 1 eligibility rules have been amended as follows:
The relaxed eligibility rule now allows maidens to win at Capalaba, and then nominate for a Class 1 Novice at Albion Park on Thursday.
As such, the Order of Entry for Class 1 Novice events has been amended to include Class 5 performances.
Stakeholders should note that Class 5 form will continue to be disregarded for all other Class 1 events.
2) Pathways Maiden Eligibility
The Pathways maiden eligibility rules have been amended as follows:
The revised eligibility rule aims to provide fairer competition for maiden greyhounds that are finding it difficult to win their first race.
The Order of Entry for Pathways maiden events has been amended to ensure that greyhounds having had 10 or more career unplaced runs are always first in the order of entry, regardless of their recent form.
3) Time Standards
The time standards for the following venues have been amended:
520m (Class 2 & 3)
520m (Class 1)
All changes can be read here in the Grading Procedures document.
