The initiative arose from Jump Racing Review and provides boost to owners and trainers of mid-tier Jump horses and Northern Jump Racing, and is an expansion of Jockey Club Racecoursesâ€™ popular Grassroots Series.
Grassroots Jump Series, which was launched in 2011/12, will be expanded significantly and staged across all of the British Jumps courses which are racing between November and March.
The Challenger Series will now comprise six separate Series that allow horses rated up to 135 (130 for Mares) to qualify through a total of 85 races for a finals day at The Jockey Clubâ€™s Haydock Park Racecourse on Easter Saturday. The Finals Day will carry prize money of around ÂŁ300,000 in total.
