    The BHB used to grade racecourses ( NH ) on a level of 1 – 4, according to the amount of prize money on offer, with the "classiest" courses falling into band 1. Do the BHB still do this, and if so, how do the courses stack up now ?

    A fair question. The preponderance of low-grade, low-prizemoney racing on the sand at Kempton presumably wrecks its average prizemoney per meeting, but it would still probably count as a Level 1 track judged solely on the evidence of its jumps programme. If the grading system does exist, is a distinction made in such instances? I’ve genuinely no idea.

    The patron saint of lower-grade fare. A gently critical friend of point-to-pointing. Kindness is a political act.
