The ground at Hornby Castle was considered by Clerk of the Course David Ford to be soft, good to soft in places on Tuesday 3rd April.
David Ford commented, “Fortunately the Hornby Castle parkland is very free-draining and a couple of drying days could see the ground approaching good by the 14th. At least we should not need to water!”
Following the late wet spring which has decimated point-to-point racing in Yorkshire, the Bedale is pleased to host an additional Dodson & Horrell PPORA Novice Riders’ Qualifier. The first four finishers in this contest will qualify for the £1000 Final at Garthorpe on 29th April.
