Treborough Hill set on Exmoor overlooking the Bristol Channel is the location for this weekend’s Point-to-Point meeting on Sunday March 10. With seven races on the card it is sure to be a great way for all the family to spend Mothers Day, and to add to the stunning scenery the organisers have again hired a large screen for racegoers to enjoy a close view of the racing.
Course specialist Deb’s Dasher lines up in the Hunt Members which kicks off the action at 12.30pm. The gelding took the Confined here last season and went on to take the Mixed Open at Kilworthy for Richard Woollacott two weeks later. His main opponent looks to be the Leslie Jefford trained Delta Borget, who won this race last season and recently scored a second to Hameldown Tor at Badbury Rings.
Next up is the Great Bradley Open Maiden for four to seven-year-olds and of the 19 entered Kudu Shine from the in-form Kayley Jones yard ran a good second to Devon Mead at Bishops Court last season, another from the same yard Miss Tinks is gradually making headway and could go close.
The Fallen Stock Company sponsor the Confined in which Dashing John goes well for jockey Natalie Parker the combination having won the Restricted here last season and could improve for this seasons debut when fourth to Barneys Mate at Milborn St Andrew. The consistent John Daniell owned by the Hussey’s Hustlers Club is another to consider having kept on well to take third in a Members race behind Hameldown Tor and Delta Borget at Badbury Rings.
The Dunsters Heat Limited Mixed Open could see the prolific winning mare Sericina add to her tally having found her old form at Great Trethew for trainer/jockey Chloe Roddick, Dear Villez another from the Chloe Roddick yard could be the one to challenge having recently run second behind Lucette Annie in the £1,000 Mixed Open at Buckfastleigh for Josh Guerriero.
Blazing Whale looks set to take the Intermediate which is sponsored by Exeter racecourse, the Ed Walker trained gelding ran third behind Double Bank and Doctor Tom at Black Forest Lodge leaving Delta Borget eight lengths in fourth.
The Mary Sanderson trained Blinding Lights was only just denied a win by a neck to Turthen at Chipley Park and could take the Restricted race here, Ladfromhighworth is another to consider after his second to Robin Will at Buckfastleigh.
