Rewarding trainers in The Jockey Club South West

The Jockey Club South West Frequent Runner Scheme is aimed at rewarding trainers who run horses regularly at Jockey Club Racecourses in the South West Region - Cheltenham, Exeter, Warwick and Wincanton.


There are two categories of a frequent runner. Trainers with 40 or more horses and Trainers with 40 or fewer horses in training.


The Championship for the 2020/21 season started at Warwick on Monday 21 September and scored will be backdated and will finish on Wednesday 26 May 2021.  


All qualifying races are allocated a star rating (* to *****) with trainers awarded full points (star rating) for their first runner and half points for additional runners in the same race. These are based on the average numbers of runners a race has attracted over the previous two or three years as follows:

  • 1 star - 18 plus runners
  • 2 stars - 15-17
  • 3 stars - 12-14
  • 4 stars – 8-11
  • 5 stars – less than 8

The star ratings for each qualifying race are marked with the race conditions.



After the meeting at Wincanton on 3 March 2021, the top six trainers in the above 40 category, and the top two in the 40 or less category will each win an all expenses table for 10 on one day at The Festival.


Any points awarded after this date will count towards the final scoring at the end of the Jockey Club Racecourses South West Jumps season. 

At the end of the South West Jumps Season, the over 40winner will receive an Equitrek horsebox for 12 months. The under 40 will receive a hospitality box at The Festival 2022. Scores will be updated throughout the season and published on this webpage as well as in the racecards.
