Bedale point-to-point meeting

Bedale point-to-point meeting

122 entries have been received for the 7 race card at the Bedale point-to-point meeting, at Hornby Castle, on Saturday 13th April 2013.

Racing starts with the Confined and 24 have been entered.  Moment of Madness made a good return to the course at Whitcliffe Grange and will improve for that run.  Miss Chatterbox is likely to run in a hunterchase at Wetherby on Friday and Kandelin made a good Yorkshire debut under first time jockey Rachel Lupton two weeks ago, however the winner is likely to be Ban Uisce who won last time out and is in good heart.

As is typical in Yorkshire this season, the Ladies Open is another competitive renewal.  If Palypso De Creek makes the journey from Lincolnshire he will take all the beating, however Nippy Des Mottes has run some very good races this season, as has Impact Zone.  Amalfi Coast is an interesting recruit to the pointing field, having not run since 2010 but the main challenge could come from Playing the Field who was second to Palypso De Creek in a match at Brocklesby.

The day starts with pony racing at 12.30 pm, with the first point-to-point race due off at 1.30pm.  The postcode for satellite navigation is DL8 1NQ.
