Conditions Amended For Inverell Bush Battler's Cup (Sat 14 Nov)

Inverell Jockey Club has altered the conditions to its Battlers Cup to be run during the Sky 2 race meeting on Saturday, 14 November 2020.

The race is normally run as a race restricted to horses that have competed at the small one day meetings in the north of the state, however, this year it will be a special conditions reverse ballot order Benchmark 50 Handicap (1400m) with $15,000 prizemoney.

"The loss of most of the one-day meetings due to COVID restrictions necessitated the change to the race that was originally designed to provide a 'grand final' for the horses at the lower end of the scale who support community meetings," explained IJC committeeman, Mike Witherdin.

"The race is open to all nominations should a ballot be required, horses above the Benchmark 50 will be eliminated first in the ballot order.

"Trainers are urged to check the full conditions on the Racing NSW Race Diary page. The club also has an 1800-metre Open Handicap Diggers Cup as a second feature on the day.

"After a dry spring, the course enjoyed 40 millimetres of gentle soaking rain over the week after the club’s TAB Everest day meeting so the course will be ideal on raceday.

"Inverell has staged two non-TAB racedays under COVID restrictions in order for the lower grade horses to be able to find suitable races and stay in work despite the loss of other meetings in the area."
