These races are each worth €20,000 and are confined to four, five, six and seven-year-old geldings and mares that have been sold as three or four year olds in a recognised store sale in Ireland or the UK. 

Each race is confined to horses that have cost no more than €30,000 as a store and have not won any race under rules or a point-to-point.  Runners in this Tattersalls Ireland / EBF Auction Maiden Hurdle Series will also have allowances according to their sales price and age.
