The principles agreed unanimously by the BHA Board that will inform the 2024 fixture list, include:

A “Premier” racing tier with higher prize money and more competitive top-quality racing featuring the best horses
A two-hour “shop window” on most Saturday afternoons with three fixtures, including up to two Premier fixtures, taking place during the peak customer engagement period (usually 2pm-4pm). Other Saturday fixtures will take place outside the protected window
Piloting six Sunday evening floodlit fixtures between January and March 2024 – a time of the week where betting activity tends to be strong
Boosting Core racing – moving more fixtures later in the day in response to changing customer preferences, making the most of our Core fixtures during major festivals and supporting Summer Jumping
More competitive racing with a reduction in 300 Jump races across the year, and some Flat races moved from summer to autumn/early winter, based on data showing these measures will help increase field sizes and betting
Better quality racing on Sunday afternoons, including Premier fixtures.

Not keen on working Sundays, but the other stuff looks like a move in the right direction.
