Owners and trainers encouraged to qualify for Northern Lights finals

The Northern Lights series concludes at Carlisle in December
1 of 1

The race is on to secure a spot in the Northern Lights Series final at Carlisle on Sunday, December 3.

Only a handful of qualifying opportunities remain for the five categories – 3m handicap chase, 2½m handicap chase, 2m handicap hurdle, 3m handicap hurdle and 2½m mares handicap hurdle – with each culminating in a £25,000 Class 2 event for those making the final cut.

The series are not confined exclusively to northern-trained horses, but in order to qualify horses are required to have started in at least two series qualifiers and been placed in the first eight on at least one occasion.

Qualification is specific to each category and cannot be mixed and matched.

A total of 12 races remain in the coming month across the various categories and the BHA will be communicating with trainers and owners via email and text message to ensure they are aware of any potential opportunities.
