The North Cotswold Point-to-Point at Bank Farm Paxford takes place on Monday 22nd April, so has had over a year to benefit from remedial work advised by Simon Claisse, Cheltenham’s Clerk of the Course and Regional Head of racing in the South West.

This included a mole plough to improve drainage in the lorry park, sheep being grazed on the course to improve grass coverage, while trees next to the bridge on the downhill run out of the home straight have been significantly reduced which will let in more light and allow the ground to drain better.

DISTANCES ALL RACES ARE RUN OVER 3 MILES WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE RESTRICTED
