The first of three scheduled meetings was held on Saturday when the North Norfolk Harriers held their Point-to-Point.

The crowd were privileged to see some of the best racing that has ever been witnessed at Higham on excellent going with a record number of horses, exciting races, both favourites and outsiders crossing the line first.

Local Cambridgeshire horse, 7/4 favourite Done A Runner, gave Jack Andrews his first-ever winner in the Novice Riders race, one of the two races in which Victoria Pendleton took part, finishing but not being placed.

Horses had travelled from far and wide, 28 of which took part in the opening race of the day, the Maiden, that had to be split, both divisions won by raiders.

Fort Gabriel took the first, beating the favourite Happy Ring House by half-a-length.

In the second division, Don’t Budge was the two-length winner from Sam Davies-Thomas on Barry Belchem’s Nandini trained by David Kemp.0
