Rule 75 – Starting position of Reserves, and Parade order

A Reserve permitted under Rule 67 to run shall start from the same position relative to the other runners as the Withdrawal it replaces would have done, across the course, except that;

If, in a Handicap Race, a Reserve which is allotted a different Handicap from that of a Withdrawal replaces the latter so that it thereby becomes impossible under Rule 72 and Rule 74 to comply fully with Rule 71. Rule 71 shall be waived only as far as necessary, and a public announcement shall be made that the Reserve(s) will run wearing the Trap Number(s) of the Withdrawal(s) but that the runners will start from positions according to their Handicap allotments under Rule 72. In any case, the runners shall be paraded in the order in which they will start across the course.
