For the Randox Health Grand National Meeting all horses must pass a pre-race examination and trot on the day of the race similar to the Cheltenham Festival.
In addition to this; trainers are required to submit to the BHA 45 days of medication records for horses due to run in the Foxhunter, Topham or Grand National Steeple Chases.
Form A covers all medications given in the 35 days prior to 28th March 2019 and any medication with a long-term effect given in the previous six months of the race day. This Form should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Form B is to include any medication administered since the completion and submission of Form A (10 days prior to the day of the race). This Form should be presented to the BHA Veterinary Officer at the pre-race examination and trot-up on the day of the race.
Trainers who have a horse which may be described as a “poor mover” or which has an asymmetrical gait”, should identify these horses to the BHA before Monday 25th March 2019.
