  • The 2002 point-to-point season gets underway this weekend

    Weather permitting, all roads will lead to Cottenham, Cambs on Sunday for the start of what it is hoped will be an uninterrupted point-to-point campaign. With the first race due off at 11am, the advice is to get there early, as a large crowd is anticipated.

    This meeting has never failed to provide outstanding racing with horses likely to come from far and wide. A preview, plus up-to-date news of the going, can be obtained by phoning Talking Point (tel: 09068 446061).
