- Must have run in a Maiden race in the current Point-to-Point Season.
Points can be scored in any Point-to-Point race or hunter chase in G.B. up to the close of the Wessex or West Midlands Point-to-Point season (whichever is the later).
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.
This Award is for horses yet to win a Maiden that are qualified in the West Midland and Wessex Areas
