POINT-TO-POINT: THE popular Cheshire Hunt point-to-point meeting last Sunday went ahead with wet ground described as soft but heavy in places on the picturesque Alpraham course.
Leading North West jockeys were in top form.
Gary Hanmer, who trains near Nantwich, notched up the first leg of a treble in the Members, Subscribers & Farmers Race with a well-timed four-length win on Tinarana Lord. Tessa Clark of Threapwood, aboard The Eens, finished in second place.
Hanmer was back in the winners' enclosure when Sarah's Party won the Restricted Race by 10 lengths from Scarlet Gunner, trained by Steve Wynne of Malpas.
The Peter Scott Memorial Open Maiden gave Hanmer his third win aboard Flying Through, who lived up to her name when galloping to the lead after landing over the final obstacle.
Jockey Richard Burton also recorded a treble. The first leg was aboard Joe Brown in the Open Maiden with a 30-length victory over Strong King. Darnil then obliged in the Confined Hunts Race, again pulling clear by 30 lengths of his nearest rival, Cutina.
Uncle Neil completed the hat-trick with a five-length win in the Men's Open.
