Point-to-point: Longstone Boy's long journey to pay off
Saturday 11 February 2006
Frost could pose a threat to one or two of today's remaining four meetings as Larkhill was abandoned last night and the Harkaway Club at Chaddesley Corbett and the Vale Of Clettwr both hold morning inspections at 8.30.
The Mid Devon at Black Forest Lodge, near Exeter, looks certain to go ahead as the overnight temperature in south Devon is forecast to drop no lower than -1 and the course has been watered to ensure good ground.
Welsh raider Longstone Boy will take some beating in the ladies open (1.00) as he wound up last season by winning a hunter-chase at Ludlow.
Last season's Aintree Foxhunters' winner Katarino (men's open 1.00) is among the near 300 entries at Chaddesley Corbett where Saint Reverin can follow up his men's open win in the Club Members (11.30).
FIXTURES: TODAY: Brocklesby at Brocklesby Park. (First race 12.30). Near A18, 10m W of Grimsby, 5m E of exit 5, M180. Harkaway Club at Chaddesley Corbett. (11.30). Next to A448 midway between Bromsgrove and Kidderminster, exit 4 or 5, M5. Mid Devon at Black Forest Lodge. (12.0). 5m S of Exeter, near B3381 between A380 and Starcross. Only 6m off end of M5. Vale of Clettwr at Erw Lon. (12.0). 13m N of Carmarthen on B4336. ABANDONED: United Services at Larkhill. TOMORROW: Albrighton at Weston Park. (12.0). 4m NE of Shifnal, near A5 and A41, exit 12, M6, or exit 3, M54. Easton Harriers at High Easter. (12.0). 8m NW of Chelmsford near A1060, exit 8, M11.
Diving in at the deep end is no excuse for shirking the style stakes
