Next Sunday (February 9) will be the third and final point-to-point horse racing meeting to be held at The Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge this season, and another action packed quality race day will be on offer, writes Donna Harris.

Six races with a start time of noon have attracted almost 60 entries.

The first race is the novice riders & conditions race, and holds an entry from the Dean Summersby team's Honest Deed, who must be respected on his two-length second to Navanman at Great Trethew last season.

He could be taken on by the Les Jefford trained Raddon Top who ran fourth behind Caid du Berlais at Buckfastleigh last month.

In the Open maiden race Cottage Rose ran second here in January for trainer John Heard and could run well under jockey Fergus Gillard, also Thekitchenmechanic has the booking of champion jockey Will Biddick so must be respected along with both Artic Milly and Artic Fever who have both decent place form.
