POINT-TO-POINT makes its long-anticipated return to Yorkshire next Monday as the sport makes a comeback to courses across the country.

Although racing under rules has continued, point-to-pointing is classed as an amateur sport and has therefore been sidelined for the past three months due to Government regulations.

But after the weekend, owners, trainers and riders are set to take to the course again - though the race-going public will have to wait a little longer yet.

Hurworth is hosting its meeting on the evening of Monday, March 29 behind closed doors and under strict Covid regulations.

Runners must be declared before the meeting, rather than on the day, to help social distancing.
