POINT-TO-POINT racing returns to Hereford Racecourse this Sunday, when the North Ledbury Hunt organises a busy card of at least seven races, preceded by two pony races, which start at 12.15pm.

Sarah Oliver, secretary of the fixture, which has attracted a respectable 127 entries, is enjoying a purple patch with her horses and she will be hoping that Green Winter, one of her favourites, will repeat last year’s course victory, which helped him towards the 2018 Area Leading Horse award.

The card includes a Timico Mixed Open race, and the 20 entries include several classy horses, notably Now Ben from the in-form Phillip Rowley stable.

Second in a Ludlow hunter-‘chase to the breath-taking Arthurs Secret (Fr), he will be looking to go one better here.

The JRL Group Point-to-Point Flat Race for four, five and six year-olds over two miles has again proved popular, and with 35 entries, is more than likely to be split on the day.

The current going is officially ‘good’, with scattered showers forecast likely to keep it that way, though the course will be watered if necessary.

Regretfully, due to ARC policy, no dogs will be allowed in at the meeting.

Hereford Racecourse (HR4 9QU) can be found on Roman Road, on the north side of Hereford, just off the A49.

Entrance to the course is £12.50 per person, under 16’s and car parking free.
