THIS weekend’s racing is dominated by two of the biggest entries seen in point-to-points for quite some time. The backlog created by the bad weather the country has experienced during so much of the season has become evident.

Sunday’s fixture at Bartlemy has attracted an entry of 232, which is by far the biggest entry of the season, while 24 hours earlier, the Mid-Antrim’s have been handsomely rewarded for moving their fixture from Broughshane to Loughanmore, coming close to also breaking the 200-entry mark with an entry of 193.
