HORSE racing fans will be descending on the Cold Harbour course near Leominster this weekend for the popular point-to-point meeting.

Taking place on Sunday the Area Classic race at Cold Harbour is always a humdinger, and this weekend's contest is set to be no exception.

Sarah Oliver’s brilliant performer, Green Winter, will be bidding for his fourth success in the demanding four-miler course, but there will be plenty trying to spoil his party.

Organised by the Radnor & West HH, the meeting always attracts a healthy crowd for the seven races, preceded by the increasingly popular pony racing, the first of which is at 12.45pm.

Local farmer, Alan Rogers, has been clerk-of-the-course for ‘The Radnors' for four decades, and he will be making every effort to provide excellent going conditions.

Storm Hannah has ensured that the current going is ‘good’, but Rogers and team are fully prepared to water the riverside course if required.

Cold Harbour (HR6 0JS) is positioned three miles west of Leominster, close to the junction of the A44 and A4110.

There will be plenty of trade stands, as well as the usual bar and bookmakers. Entrance to the course is £10 per person, under 16’s and car-parking free.
