Bize MR appeal overruled

Merit Rating Appeal

An independent panel consisting of Messrs R S Napier, K Nicol and J Vermaak convened on 16 April 2019 by teleconference to hear a MR Appeal lodged by Mr Colin Gordon on behalf of BIZE’s adjusted merit racing of 97 from her rating of 79 following her 4th place finish in the Grade 2 Wilgerbosdrift S A Oaks over 2450m at Turffontein Racecourse on 30 March 2019.

The Appeal panel was of the opinion that BIZE’S adjusted and published Merit Rating was correct and consequently dismissed the appeal and refunded the deposit.

The Appeal Panel strongly recommends that the Handicappers elaborate as to how the Guidelines are applied so that the public/interested parties gain more clarity.
