    Riders will not lose their riding fee if they get banned for a whip offence and will forfeit their prize-money percentage only if receiving a suspension of seven days or more - up from three. Therefore a jockey who uses one more hit than allowed will not lose their prize-money percentage.
    The five-hits edict in the final furlong/after the last obstacle has been dropped, although the limit on strikes remains seven times in a Flat race, and eight over jumps.

    All whip bans incurred since the introduction of the new harsher regime that came in on October 10 will be subject to the new set of rules.
