Trainer Chris Loggin will be hoping Cutlass Silver can go out on a high note at Sunday’s Grafton Hunt point-to-point meeting at Whifield.

A total of 147 entries have been received for Sunday’s meeting and clerk of the course Graham Tawell reported over the weekend that the going is good to firm, good in places.

The Ladies Open has the victors of the last three runnings among its 15 entries.

Last year’s winner History Master may bid for a repeat while Loggin’s Cutlass Silver who scored in 2013 and 2014, may have done so again last year but for unseating three out last year.

It will be the mare’s final appearance before retiring to the paddocks and her Hinton-in-the-Hedges trainer said: “I hope she can sign off with a decent run on a course and ground that she likes.

“She had a good blow at Kingston Blount last weekend with Sunday in mind.”

The Volvo Club Members race for ten-year-olds and over has 27 entries although half the field are entered in other races on the cards.

Of those with more than one entry on the card, Towering Run won the Members for Tash Rose here last month and her landlord Chris Loggin said: “We like to think he’ll run well again. He’s run a couple of decent races at Whitfield, he’s a spring horse and he’ll like the ground.

“However, we won’t make a decision on which race to go for until Tash has studied the form, she’ll be up until midnight!”

Entry is £10 per person and the first race 2pm. Go to www.whitfieldracecourse.co.uk for more details.
