Point-to-Point at Ratcheugh.
Point-to-Point at Ratcheugh.

The West Percy point-to-point, cancelled on Sunday due to the frost and snow, has been rescheduled.

The meeting, at Ratcheugh, near Alnwick, will now take place on Saturday, January 31, with the first race at noon. There will be seven races and previous entries stand.

Sunday’s point-to-point, the first to be held at Ratcheugh this year, was called off after an early-morning course inspection found frost still in the ground and light snow showers at the course.
