Area: South Midlands; Sandhurst
Meeting(s): Point-to-Point Owners & Riders Club Sunday, 09 December 2012; Vine & Craven (1) - Sunday, 17 February 2013; Tedworth - Sunday, 24 March 2013
Course Summary: Set well off the road in natural amphitheatre; a gently undulating oblong course; superb downland grass, uphill from before two out; fences well-built; on chalk so gives perfect going in early season. Viewing is superb with the whole course visible from selected spots. Car parking satisfactory with access/exit via long hard track. Paddock is superb. An outstanding venue; the PPORC meeting is a must and the 2 day meeting is now a regular feature of the early weeks of the new season - but sadly lost to the weather for the last two years; the exercise of moving each fence after day one to fresh ground continues to be an excellent achievement.
Top Riders: D. Mansell 6, James Tudor 5, W. Biddick, *Miss R. Green, *Miss P. Gundry, M. Wall & P. York 3
