November’s Eric Smith Handicap trophy race was the 5 mile route based round the quiet country lanes of Weeton village. Nick Hodgkinson scored top points finishing first ahead of David Fox and Debra Mullen in 2nd and 3rd. Scott recorded the fastest time, which is a new course record. There were also several age best times from Catharine Dobson, Chris Brunold, Richard Smith, Rogan Ashton and Phil Robinson.
With just the Christmas Ken Dixon handicap to go the handicap table is very tight for the top 3 positions. Nick Hodgkinson leads on 99 points ahead of Antonio Cardinale and Catharine Dobson on 96 points, with James Dobson still in with a shout on 94.5 points. The best 7 rule also plays it’s part as all of those apart from Antonio have recorded at least 7 handicaps this year, see the full table here.
So it’s all to play for over the Christmas period who will come out on top?
