Partly in response to how well the Irish horses performed at Cheltenham, the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) will be making changes to the handicap system, expected to take effect in 2022.

It can get a little tricky, but the gist of it is that they will lower the ratings of their horses more readily to reflect their ability, and they hope not to have their horses ‘over-rated’ when competing with the Irish.
