6 IRISH CHAMPIONS WEEKEND The Longines Irish Champions Weekend is a new highlight of the Flat racing season, not just within Ireland but also globally, given the quality of races that are staged and the provision of top-class opportunities over the full spectrum of ages and distances. The weekend in September welcomes the world s leading horses, owners, trainers and jockeys to what is two magnificent days of sporting competition. The QIPCO Irish Champion Stakes at Leopardstown on the Saturday and the Palmerstown House Estate Irish St Leger at the Curragh on the Sunday are the feature races in a combined programme which represents the greatest concentration of quality Flat racing ever staged in Ireland. The race programme includes five Group 1 races, two Group 2 races, three Group 3 races and four premier handicaps. The two-day meeting is a showcase for Flat racing in Ireland, creating a high profile event attracting the best horses in the world and ensuring that Ireland has a meeting which can bear comparison with all other major international meetings. It is sure to quickly establish itself as a major racing attraction at home and become an important part of the calendar for international Flat racing fans.

The Championships run throughout the winter before concluding on Good Friday. The Championships celebrates its own stars by staging the All-Weather Championships Finals Day at Lingfield Park; the culmination of a great season of All-Weather racing, with a total prize fund on offer of 1million, the richest day of All-Weather racing in Europe. The Championships improves the quality and reputation of All-Weather racing and encourages Owners and Trainers to keep their horses in training during the winter months to compete in one of the 6 categories, designed to test every horse, jockey and trainer in the UK. The categories are 3-Y-O; Sprint; Mile; Marathon; Fillies & Mares; and Middle Distance. All-Weather racing covers about a fifth of the British fixture list and top trainers, leading owners and the best jockeys have supported All-Weather racing since its inception over two decades ago

Integrated with the GBI service, our Flags and Ratings give customers even more information about every runner in every race. Each horse is allocated a Timeform Rating that is converted into a simple to understand scale. The top-rated horse in every race is allocated the Gold Star Flag. The Horses For Courses Flag, highlights a horse who is likely to enjoy the course configuration, based on their previous record at similar style tracks. The Jockey Uplift Flag identifies when the engaged rider has a notably higher Timeform Jockey Ranking than those who ve ridden the horse on its most recent starts. Finally the Trainer Form Flag pinpoints those trainers who are in hot form, based upon the Timeform ratings related measurements look at the recent performance of their runners. Our flags are displayed pre-race and are designed in such a way to make them easy for viewers to follow. We believe that they improve viewers knowledge and help them find more winners, thereby growing betting turnover
