Point-to-point racing takes place at Upcott Cross on Sunday when the Eggesford Hunt host their meeting.

Another great day out for all the family is on offer with pony racing heading up the action at noon, and the main seven-race card starting at 1pm with more than 120 entries received.

The feature race of the day is the Simpkin Edwards-sponsored mixed open four-mile Devon National. Entries include Bellsinni Ron from the Richard Barber team, who has a hat-trick of wins this season at Charleton Hawthorne, Ston Eston and Little Windsor.

Lucette Annie trained by Simon Partridge, is a previous course winner here, loves the soft and goes well for jockey Darren Edwards. Double Dizzy is an interesting entry, the 13-year-old gelding having won more than £100,00 prize money under Rules, and should have fun back in Pointing.
