There is one Handicap race every
month from April to September. Points are awarded to the first
35 finishers starting with 35 for the first, 34 for the second down to
1 for the 35th. 5 points are also awarded to every finisher to
go towards the tally for the club championship. Willie Mykura
has a very good formula for working out handicaps which takes into account
recent form. As well as a good race, there is the social conviviality
of a shared meal afterwards.
