Tattersalls Cheltenham and Goffs UK continue as sponsors of the 4/5-year-old Maiden Series this season, with an increased commitment. They are the two most prominent bloodstock sales companies in Great Britain and long-term supporters of British point-to-pointing. There will be a series of nineteen young horse maiden races spread throughout the country. This is a continuation of the initiative introduced in recognition of the increased numbers of young horses racing in British point-to-points in recent years. These races again have a further condition which states that they are for horses that have not run in any race under rules.
