THE 2011 Cottesmore point- to-point races will be held at Garthorpe, near Wymondham on Sunday.
Eight races are on the card, starting at midday with the final race scheduled for 4.20pm.
Several locally trained horses and riders will compete including Cottesmore’s Richard Hunnisett, who hopes to ride either Denvale or Van Ness in the Barnsdale Lodge Hotel race.
Denvale has already won this season while Van Ness finished fourth in the Aintree Foxhunters last April. Hunnisett will be looking to return to form following a fall from the King Of Angels at Thorpe races.
Holly Campbell who trains near Oakham will hope to follow up her win at Brocklesby.
Holly has Silver Tenor entered in both the Mallard Pawnbrokers & Jewellers Member’s race and The North Family (Ranksborough Polo) Restricted race. This grey gelding who is owned by The Silver Hunting Partnership was only beaten by half a length by More Than Hopeful in February and will be fancied to win on Sunday.
Admission is £9 per person with reserved parking at £40 per car including all passengers.
