LATEST GOING REPORT: GOOD (As of Friday 21st December)
The 2018/2019 East Anglian Point to Point season continues at Cottenham on Sunday 30th December with the Cambridgeshire Harriers Hunt Club meeting. First race 11am. Seven Races and a great way to see out 2018. Under 16’s go free!! Be sure not to miss what is always a competive day of racing.
A total of 112 entries have been made for The Cambridgeshire Harriers Hunt Club fixture at Cottenham on Sunday 30th December, which commences at 11:00 hrs with a hunt club members’ conditions race.
A competitive race should ensue with recent winners Karinga Dancer and Hawkhurst heading the 19 entries, which also includes prolific scorers Derksen and Summer Sounds amongst other possible and intriguing contestants.
The restricted race could feature the full-brothers Black Jewel and Captiva Island who were both successful at the previous Cottenham fixture, whilst Drakes Well won on his UK debut at Larkhill on the same day. Add Caliente and Tricky Silence to the mix and we are in for a treat.
The men’s open race could see the first four home in the men’s open at the last meeting renew rivalry when Now Ben just prevailed. It is possible that his stable companion and winner this season Bear’s Affair could run instead, and we also have Broken Eagle lurking in the wings should he now be ready for an outing.
The Countryside Alliance Club Members Conditions race for novice riders has a competitive look with last week’s easy Barbury winner Local Show possibly seeking redemption around this track having fallen at the second last whilst challenging Karinga Dancer.
The ladies open race could see Sharp Suit and Gina Andrews renew their partnership, but they may have to contend with the useful Arthur’s Secret.
Both maiden races have attracted 18 entries apiece, in which Rapaport, the winner of a point to point “bumper” at Garthorpe hold entries.
A cracking card to look forward to once the Christmas festivities are over.
