Point-to-Points: Three of England's best racecourses
Duncombe Park, Yorkshire
Set Chantilly-esque in the grounds of an 18th century house, that may be the only similarity this Yorkshire course keeps with its French cousin. With a course stretching for almost three miles, you're more likely to find a meat pie here than a jambon beurre, lying as it does just over twelve miles east of Thirsk. Racing gets underway on 5th February, when the course hosts the Sinnington Hunt meeting (first race at midday), their only fixture.
