Course: Thorpe Lodge
Location: near Newark. Nottinghamshire
A very flat left handed course with softish fences run around spring crops.
When the wind blows it arrives uninterrupted from Siberia making this one of the coldest Point-to-Point courses around - and there's nowhere to hide so proper clothing is a must.
Quite a long trek in from the main road so arriving in plenty of time is recommended. Plenty of bookmakers and and a few trade stands.
Runners scamper along the back straight.
The finishing straight crowd wait expectantly.
Bookies and punters alike shiver in the icy winter sunshine.
