GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 22ND MAY 2016

Website_Money_Talks_E16

The Mystro (7-4 to 11-8) got favourite backers off to a good start in the Exmoor sunshine. The Keith Cumings yard has come into form of late, and The Mystro certainly looked ready to do his job. There was a little money for last year’s winner Bernshaw (9-4 to 2’s) and Forrardon Xmoor also found favour at 5-2 into 7-4. so it was quite a tight book with the other three runners virtually ignored. The Mystro was driven clear up the final climb by Jake Bament.

Dunn’s River (Will Biddick) had beaten subsequent winner Fountains Cider at the Cotley and opened at 5-4 on to follow up in the Restricted here. The Barber stable is also firing in winners and despite easing (5-4 in a place before settling at evens), Biddick’s mount stayed on strongly up the hill to beat Trebudannon winner Brandy and Red (6’s / 11-2), with Flete Park Maiden winner Cloudy Lady (5-2 to 2’s) well held in third.

The third successive jolly was another easy winner from the Barber yard with Bryony Frost oozing confidence on Aikideau firm 1-2 fav) before letting her mount stride clear after jumping the last.

The two best backed horses in the Men’s Open fought out the finish A typical waiting ride from Biddick looked like paying off as he sent The Flying Doc (evens to 4-6) into the lead crossing the last. It was a similar story however to her recent Cheltenham defeat as she found less than the eventual winner Moorland Sunset (5‘s into 7-2) on the climb to the post. This former Caroline Keevil trained gelding is now unbeaten in his four runs this season and was given a good ride by Nick Phillips.

Although only four went to post for the Intermediate there was little between the principals on form. Ed Walker posed a problem by saddling first and second favourites. Doyen Dynamo (7-4 into 5-4) proved the more popular in the ring as Punter Friendly eased slightly from 6-4 out to 7-4. The punters were proved correct, but Driftwood Pride (5-2 to 3’s) nearly spoiled the party. A positive front running ride from Sean Houlihan on Driftwood Pride (jumped really well) all but stole the race, but the Dynamo got wound up breasting the hill to take the lead 150 yards out.

The bookies went home smiling as the 10 runner Open Maiden was a head scratcher (that time of the season isn’t it?). The favourite Sammy Blade (5-4 out to 7-4), was presumably backed because he had run well in better class at the Seavington. He was soon struggling in rear on this occasion and was eventually pulled up on the final bend (hung left and not fluent at his fences). Buz Barton was thought to be the business this time (5’s into 3’s including a £200 bet) but he has an alphabet for form figures contrasting between U, R and a enough P’s to fill a plate. He finished last. The winner Sir Des Pres (4’s out to 11-2) is a good looking seven-year-old Presenting gelding. He saw the trip out better than Miss Weld (6’s to 7’s).

Preview: South Tetcott Point-to-Point at Upcott Cross Bank Holiday Monday 30th May 2016

Website_Preview_ST16

Written by: Donna Harris

Horse racing enthusiasts are promised a fantastic family day out on Bank Holiday Monday May 30th, when the South Tetcott will be hosting their Point-to-Point meeting to be held at Upcott Cross, Halwill Junction. Pony racing  heads up the action at 12 noon with two pony races sponsored by Bruce Newport. Then follows the main seven race card at 1pm, which have attracted over 120 entries resulting in the Open Maiden race already divided before the day.

Penbode Vet Group sponsor the opening Confined race in which the Ella Pickard-trained and ridden Cinevetor is among the entries, he could once again defy top weight and add to his unbeaten run this season. Ella has just collected her Princes Royal trophy for being crowned leading National Novice Lady Jockey under 21. Follow The Paint came home runner up here at the last meeting and could run well again, with  It’s All Or Nothing another being entry who may try and deny Cinevator his fourth straight win.

The Dimson Day Care nursery-sponsored Men’s Open could see another good performance from Certain Flight who came back from injury to put on a stunning performance when winning at this course two weeks ago under champion jockey Will Biddick for the Keith Cumings team. Really Unique is an entry that catches the eye after his twenty length win at the Bredwardine meeting in Hereford under jockey Byron Moorcroft for trainer Michael Bassett. Blazing Whale from the Ed Walker team is another who would put on a bold bid having wins in double figures and his second in a Hunter Chase at Fontwell Park puts him in the mix.

The Teresa Clarke-trained Fountains Cider could go well in the Coodes Solicitors-sponsored Restricted race with the yard in top form, Dean Summersby’s Rockinrolldixie looks progressive, whilst Key People for Welsh trainer raider Jonathan Lean is another suggestion who could go close.

Simpkins Edwards sponsor the Ladies Open race which has attracted a strong field with outside raiders such as Sharp Suit from the Alan Hill Yard for leading lady jockey Gina Andrews, with Bangor and Brocklesby winner All Great N Theory from the Julie Marles team for jockey Claire Hart. Watch The Birdie is another highly rated with recent wins at Pyle and Lower Machen under jockey Hannah Lewis.

Unbeaten Premier Portrait stands out among the entries in the Novice Riders race which is sponsored by PRJ Engineering and has 26 entered. Premier Portrait is the current leading horse, and although holds an entry at the Cothelstone meeting on Sunday connection could choose here to seal the novice riders title for Gus Levinson and his family here at Upcott Cross. Ella Pickard could choose this race for Cinevator over the Ladies Open, and the Alan Hill-trained King’s Legacy is another who could well be in the mix and looks to act on any, after his Open wins at Tabley and Larkhill when ridden by Joe Hill.

The Open Maiden race has already been divided, with suggestions for the short list in the first division being Cothelstone and Vauterhill runner up Kisha Lad, Trebudannon and Wadebridge runner up Driving Well, and Trebudannon third Witchesintune. Whilst the second division possible favourites could be Village Whispers and She’s Dapper. The divisions of the Open Maiden are sponsored by The Dawn West Devon and FC Cleaning Systems.

The course offers track side viewing, hot food and refreshments, bar, bookies and a number of trade stands. Course is located 2 miles South of Halwill junction, off A3079. Postcode EX21 5AE. Entrance to the course is £10 per person up to a maximum of £30 per car load. Children under 16 free. Dogs on leads welcome. Pedestrians £10.

REPORT ON THE EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 22ND MAY 2016

Website_Report_E16

 

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

WILL BIDDICK’S double at Bratton Down gave him his fifth winner in the last five days,and helped to elevate him into a narrow lead over Darren Edwards for the Devon & Cornwall  title.

Biddick is already assured of his fifth consecutive National championship, and it looks like being a close call for the local title this year

Overnight rain eased the going  considerably and Exmoor looked at its best, bathed in afternoon sunshine. A late decision to let his horses take their chance paid off for Jack Barber. Dunn’s River with Will Biddick in the saddle came right away from his nine opponents to take the Restricted and initiate a double for the young trainer. The grey, by Mastercraftsman , is  owned by the Axe Valley Racing Club and is steadily improving. “Everything is coming together for Dunn’s River now. He jumps and stays well,” remarked Biddick.

Aikideau completed the stable double when defying his penalty under Bryony Frost in the Ladies’ Open. The winner was hard pressed two out by Ohio Gold and Miss Cupcake, but stayed on very strongly up the final climb for an emphatic victory.

The 10 runner Men’s Open proved quite competitive with a group of seven still holding chances at the third last. Biddick’s well timed challenge on the favourite The Flying Doc jumping the last looked like paying off, but Moorland Sunset proved the stronger on the gruelling climb for home.  The nine-year-old is unbeaten in four runs this season for owner Scilla Phillips and trainer Elizabeth Brown. Winning jockey Nick Phillips was partnering his eighth winner of the season, which includes a hunter chase success at Cheltenham for the same connections on Cousin Pete. “Moorland Sunset was with Caroline Keevil but we did a deal a couple of years ago with his former owner Philip Popham and got him in lieu of payment for straw. He tries and he stays but we call him sick note at home. He is quite quirky and won’t run again this season.” reported the jockey.

You can’t keep Will Biddick down for long however, and he was back in the winner’s enclosure thanks to the progressive Doyen Dynamo in the Intermediate. “He jumped well and travelled,” reported the champion jockey who was partnering his 52nd point-to-point winner of the season. The winner was bought privately in Ireland and was saddled by Ed Walker for owners John Dorse and Mike Roe.

The Mystro repeated last year’s success in the Hunt race when scoring by four lengths under Jake Bament. The seven-year-old, who was formerly placed over hurdles in Ireland for Mouse Morris, is trained by Keith Cumings on behalf of a four strong local owners group called The Duckers and Divers Club.

Sir Des Pres gave jockey Philip Thomas his first winner of the season in the Open Maiden, just overhauling Miss Weld inside the final furlong. This good looking Presenting gelding was a gift horse to owner/trainer Steve Parfimowicz from Susan Humphries after her husband Ray had died last year.

REPORT ON THE EGGESFORD POINT-TO-POINT AT UPCOTT CROSS, WEDNESDAY 18TH MAY 2016

Website_Report_E16R

 

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

The re-arranged Eggesford fixture at Upcott Cross featured riding doubles for Jamie Thomas and Will Biddick.

The well supported card, postponed due to waterlogging last month, saw 61 runners contest the seven races on a breezy but dry evening.

Kayley Woollacott saddled Le Clo de la Londe and Steeltown to provide Jamie Thomas with his double. John and Sonia Gardeners Le Clo de la Londe jumped with his usual accuracy to win for the second time this season in the Intermediate.

Steeltown completed the yard’s double to clock up his fifth successive win since Easter Monday in the Mixed Open for owners John and Floss Symes.

Champion jockey Will Biddick took another step to his fifth national title thanks to  wins on Well Travelled and Certain Flight. Well Travelled takes a bit of cajoling and Biddick had to be at his best to hold the spirited challenge from Victoria Sleep on Mongress Boy in the Restricted. Jack Barber trains the winner for the Axe Valley Racing Club.

Biddick took his total to 49 for the season when Certain Flight got up on the line to catch Sucker Punch in the Confined.  This was Certain Flight’s 13th career success, but the 11-year-old has had to overcome some problems this year. “He got a stone in his eye early in January when running at Larkhill. It got infected and he nearly lost the eye. He eventually got over that but was then kicked by another horse in the yard,” reported trainer Keith Cumings.

Tom Chanin may have been unlucky on The Wealerdealer in the Mixed Open, but landed the Hunt race with a confident ride on Fishy Story. “She came from David Pipe and is really tough but would be better on softer ground,” commented trainer Stuart Sampson of his Midnight Legend mare.

A tight finish to the 14-runner Open Maiden saw Grissom just hold on from the fast finishing Zip the Lip. The winner was spotted by Bryony Frost on a visit to Ireland and is trained by her mother Nikki. “He was very keen on the first circuit then jumped better. He has always been a great jumper,” said owner/rider Ben Robarts.

The two and a half miles Maiden went to the Welsh challenger Bleu et Or who made all the running under Tom David. This five-year-old, placed over hurdles for Donald McCain, was bought at Doncaster sales last November for owners Steve Whistance and Maurice Seabourne. The rangy gelding is by the French stallion Maresca Sorrento who sired the 2014 Grand National winner Pineau De Re. Pyle, Bridgend trainer Gareth Moore, was saddling his 14th winner of the season and remarked, “Ideally he needs fast ground and is still a bit green.”
