- Must have run in a Maiden race in the current Point-to-Point Season.

Scoring: 10 pts for 1st, and (except in Maiden P-t-P races) 6 pts for 2nd, and 3 pts for 3rd
In the case of a dead heat, the points for the particular position shall be added to that of the next position and divided equally between those involved.
