A busy day is in prospect next Sunday (1st) at Cold Harbour, Monkland for the Radnor & West Hereford Hunt Point-to-Point, where the four mile Area Classic, the Crudwell Cup Mens Open is among the minimum of 7 races on the card. A total of 163 horses have been entered for the meeting, and it is likely that a couple races may be divided on the day.
Clerk of the course, Alan Rogers and his team have been hard at work preparing the course, and the going is currently ‘good’. However, if the rain forecast for later in the week does not materialise, the team are poised to water the course as needed to provide the best possible conditions.
There will be plenty of action at the popular riverside venue (HR6 0JS), with 3 pony races scheduled for 12.45pm, the first point-to-point race at 2pm, a parade of hounds after the 3rd race and a Hunt Scurry over a shortened course after the last race.
Entrance to the course, with its superb natural grandstand, is £10 per person, with under 16’s and car parking free
