Non Runners News


Trainers should note the following amendments to the Rules and Regulations which apply to the declaration of non-runners and reserves with effect from 8th April 2019:

1. The cut off time for declaration of non-runners to the Non-Runner Line remains as at present i.e. 1½ hours before the first race.
2. The new cut off time for the declaration of reserves will be 10am for November, December and January (except Dundalk) and 11am for the rest of the year and for all meetings at Dundalk.
3. You must declare a rider for a reserve if not already declared no later than the cut off time for reserves i.e. 10am or 11am as appropriate. Failure to nominate a rider by this time shall render the declaration of the reserve invalid.
4. You must also declare by the cut off time if a rider expects to carry overweight of 2lbs.
5. You should only declare a reserve if you are intending to run. You do not need to declare a reserve not intending to run. All reserves not declared by the declaration time i.e. 10am or 11am as appropriate will be automatically taken out as non-runners.
6. It will not be permissible for a rider declared on a runner to switch to a reserve if the reserve gets a run unless his original mount is a non-runner.
7. Nomination of a rider in instances where the Trainer failed to nominate a Rider to the Registry Office on a declared runner by the deadline and any winner's penalty must be declared to the Non-Runner line or the Clerk of the Scales not later than 1½ hours before the time fixed for the running of the first race.
