One hundred and two entries have been received for the Lauderdale point to point, which takes place at Mosshouses near Galashiels on Sunday.

Two pony races take place at 1pm before the main races at 2pm. These are sponsored by Musselburgh Racecourse, and local entries include Sarah Farnsworth, Gabrielle Purves, Sam Coltherd, George Crawford and Bruce Lynn.

12 entries have been received for the Baro Castlecoole Border Hunt Club Members race and include the prolific winner Cave Hunter and Douglas Julian, who won at Fife last Saturday.

Bentley Homes sponsor the Young Horse Maiden, in which Jack Clark’s Whisperdale should have a good chance having finished runner up on his last two outings.

St Boswells based Whiterigg and Eildon Hill Stables support the NPPA Club Members, which looks a competitive affair. Jo Luton, who trains at Housebyres has Page One Two Nine and the Katie Scott trained Kalastar have both won twice this season.

The Ladies is once again sponsored by Brewin Dolphin and draws an entry of 15. Scarlet Fire is the in form horse in the field having won four in a row but the Diana Walton trained, Amour Daria, won at the Lauderdale last year, and is in great form.

Sixteen are entered for the Renew Green Energy Restricted and local interest includes Jock Threadgall’s, True Thomas and Maxine Bremner’s, Yon Dora, who have both been running well.

Kelso based A Hume in association with Bladen sponsor the Men’s Open, and locally trained Barachois Silver could run well if the going is soft.

The Dick Vet Equine Hospital is supporting the final race on the card, the Open Maiden. The Yorkshire trained Theveryman looks the pick of the entries on recent form with My Humbel Bee an each way chance.

Mosshouses is situated four miles north east of Galashiels between the A7 and A68 and admission is £10 per person, which includes a racecard.
