Jane Wickett

We received sad news earlier this week that Jane Wickett passed away on Sunday 23rd November after a short period of illness. Jane was a passionate supporter of hunting and Point to Pointing and with her late husband Dennis, who was paralysed from a Point to Point racing accident both enjoyed and suffered from our sport.  Jane took part at the front line – she race rode, she trained winners and she was the long standing secretary for the Stevenstone meeting including at Vaulterhill for over 25 years. She was recognised for her dedication to pointing in 2010 at the National P2P Awards dinner when she proudly received the Cynthia Higgon award presented for outstanding service to Point to Point administration.

Linda Courtney reports following a course inspection yesterday that the going is now good to soft, soft in places.

Also travel problems. I have this morning just driven back from Cardiff – there re roadworks on M5 below Bristol, two lots for a few miles with average speed cameras (50 mph) and another set past Exeter, in the area known as Splatford Split (Kennford) end of motorway (50mph) where you take the left lane for the A380 and the Black Forest Lodge course.

THE wait is over, as this weekend Point-to-Point horse racing resumes after the summer break. The Black Forest Club host their meeting on Sunday November 30 at Black Forest Lodge, Kenton, nr Exeter. This is the first of 27 fixtures scheduled for the Devon & Cornwall Area, and the stunning location of this track provides excellent viewing from a natural grandstand. With now seven races on the card attracting a total of 108 entries, competition is bound to be hot, with trainers and jockeys keen to get their first points on the championship tables.

The action kicks off at 12 noon with the  2m 4f Open Maiden race for four and five-year-olds , kindly sponsored by Dyson, Quaintance & Strange. Of the 19 entered, High Priority from the Keith Cumings team could be favorite if National Champion jockey Will Biddick gets the leg up. Miss Weld ran well when second at Trebudannon last season and is now trained by Lee Glanville for daughter Pippa to ride, and Jepeck from the Kayley Woollacott yard ran a good third in a Bumper in the summer.

Next up is The Black Forest Lodge Club Members race, sponsored by Mrs Angela Webber. This has attracted plenty of outside raiders including two from the David Brace Welsh team Dbobe and Cock Of The Rock. The latter won this race last season and went on to score six wins for the season. Joe The Trucker for trainer Zoe Hammond won his maiden and restricted at this course. Another entry Welstonedruid is a course specialist and is from leading area trainer Robert Chanin’s team, with Whenharrymetsally who could also go well for the Cumings team and has won with jockey Matt Hampton on board.

Heltor Ltd have sponsored the Restricted race in which nineteen are entered, of these Bob The Butcher is another who could make the trip down from Wales. Having won his maiden here on holding ground for the Brace team. Raffa, What About Will and Glacial Oscar are other suggestions having run well last season.

The Strutt & Parker Mixed Open has attracted the entry of the Fred Hutsby-trained Penmore Mill who destroyed the field when winning this race last season by 15 lengths under jockey Tom Ellis. Other entries Double Bank, Gail Force, Golan Way and Silver Token are all rated over 100 which could make this the feature race of the day.

Two divisions of the Open Maiden follow, suggestions are Itchec and Way Before Dawn, this race is sponsored by J Edwards Sellars. In the second division, Who’s Jeff used to be in training with Phillip Hobbs and may take to Pointing well, he is owned by David Brace and trained by Amber Griffiths.
