GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – Lamerton Point-To-Point, Kilworthy, Sunday 24th March 2019

Only eight bookies turned up at Kilworthy – presumably because of the fixture clash with Haldon races on the same day.

The eight seemed to have the edge over the punters with 10-1 and 14-1 returned over a couple of the winners.

Odda on favourite Acadian (2-5) was beaten by Tamarstone (4’s to 5’s) in the opener, where the ex-David Pipe inmate Lough Derg Mystery (5’s out to 9’s) couldn’t spell his name in the race card, but ran a decent race to finish third.

The favourite was also beaten in the next, a 14-runner Mares Maiden, when my bet of the day Attacotti (backed down to evens fav after a sniff of 3’sin a place) couldn’t cope with Worcestershire traveller Grey Frontieres (10’s to 6’s), who seems to be doing a round trip of UK, having run at Brocklesby Park, Lincolnshire last time after her debut at Barbury Castle.

Five Gold Bars Justified favouritism (10-11) In the PPORA Maiden. It was another Biddick versus Edwards duel, but Biddick’s mount Five Gold Bars had revealed his hand when second behind Presence of Mind (who was subsequently sold for £70,000) at Blackmore Vale and always looked in command here.

Dicky Bob (1-2 to 8-13 fav) started at a very short price in the Mixed Open and duly won in a canter. Chosen Lucky (7-4 to 6-4) made a fight of it for a long way, but paid the penalty late on, allowing Heaney (7-1) to grab second place.

The Confined was a tricky little puzzle. I went for Awesome Tunes (2-1), but his jumping was not very polished and he had to settle for third. The favourite Clondaw Bunny (9-4 to evens) had every chance, but 10-1 outsider Ballyvodock won on merit, well ridden by young Ben Jones. Gordon Chambers seems to have unearthed a decent pointer after a shopping trip to Ireland. This big, strong nine-year-old by Mahler should win again in better company.

The Restricted put a smile on the bookies faces when unconsidered 14-1 chance Come On Joey gave his jockey Paul John his first winner for over four years. Owner / trainer Roy Smith does well with his small team and Joey certainly came on with a storming run up the home straight Soul Kaliber (2-1), ridden by Darren Edwards, did little wrong in defeat and looks a banker for a Restricted before long. The favourite Accordini (6-4 to 4-5) departed at the seventh fence.

Darren Edwards must have got fed up with riding into the runner up spot on Sunday. Sixteen Letters (3-1) took him there again in the last for the fourth time in the afternoon after coming up against the progressive mare Tuff Nano (4-7 fav). The winner, partnered by Will Biddick, had joined the Teresa Clark yard in December after winning a fair Irish Maiden, and had impressed when winning at Charlton Horethorne recently.

Report: Lamerton Point-To-Point, Kilworthy, Sunday 24th March 2019

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR
“The sun has come out – and the air is vivid with spring light”…….

Byron Caldwell Smith 1849-1877

A perpetual blue sky helped to brighten up the afternoon at Kilworthy, where an unfortunate accident blocking the nearby main road caused congestion and a subsequent 30 minutes delay to the racing.

Will Biddick’s double at the Lamerton put him on the 16 winners mark for the season, and left him just ten short of the British record of 414 career wins set up by Richard Burton in the 2011 season.

The six times National champion jockey steered home Five Gold Bars to win the Open Maiden, and went on to complete his double when Tuff Nano took the Intermediate.
Six-year-old Five Gold Bars, trained by Rob Hawker at Frome, stayed on well to get the better of Noble Promise (Darren Edwards) after jumping to the front at the last fence. “ We bought him at Doncaster sales last May and he ran really well last time at Charlton Horethorne. We came here for cut in the ground,” said the trainer, whose father Richard owns the gelding and sister Charlotte rides him out every day.

Will Biddick completed his double when the progressive mare Tuff Nano won for the third successive time in the Intermediate. The race developed into a duel in the home straight between the winner and runner up Sixteen Letters, with Biddick’s mount just getting home by a neck. Trainer Teresa Clark described Tuff Nano as, “still a bit weak behind and a bit green,” confirming that another outing this season is on the cards for the mare.

Darren Edwards had ridden Sixteen Letters into second place in the Intermediate and also had to endure the runner up spot on both Clondaw Bunny in the Confined and Soul Kaliber in the Restricted. Clondaw Bunny was just overhauled close home by Ballyvodock, who was making his English pointing debut, having won an Irish Maiden in 2017. Jenny Luscombe owns the winner who is trained by Gordon Chambers. “We bought him in Ireland last summer. He is a big, strong horse and has not been easy to get fit” explained the trainer. Winning jockey Ben Jones, 19, is based with Philip Hobbs and is another promising young rider to emerge from the Hobbs yard.

Soul Kaliber looked the winner at the second last in the Restricted, but 14-1 outsider Come On joey found a good turn of foot in the home straight to claim the prize. Chittlehampton based owner/trainer Roy Smith,who bought his eight-year-old in Ireland four years ago said, “I do everything myself including the schooling.” This was a welcome winner for jockey Paul John who reported that his last win in the saddle came when he rode a double at Newton Abbot a few years ago. “I have had a few ups and downs since then when I rode as a conditional and have since reverted to amateur.”

Dicky Bob ran away with the Mixed Open, beating Heaney and Chosen Lucky in the fastest time of the day. Bryan Carver was partnering the popular 12-year-old for the first time and the pair sailed home with 25 lengths to spare. Owner / trainer Verity Nicholls trains within sight of the course and was obviously pleased to get her charge back into winning form after he had unseated his rider at Buckfastleigh. “He is really my old hunter. I do his schooling and popped him over a jump yesterday. I expect his next outing will be the Members’ at Cherrybrook and I would like to consider a hunter chase before the end of the season.”

The Open Maiden race for mares attracted 14 runners with five-year-old Grey Frontieres prevailing in a blanket finish. The winner had made the journey from the Droitwich yard of owner / trainer Max Young who was saddling his other runners at Brampton Bryan. “We came here for the ground and the track. She is a big, strong mare who needs cut in the ground,” explained Heather Oliver who had travelled the mare on her three hours journey from Worcestershire. Winning jockey James King said of his mount, “She was a bit green in front and her jump at the last won it.”

Tamarstone put up a brave performance to win the Hunt race under David Prichard. After making the running he was headed at the final jump by Acadian, but rallied gamely to gain the verdict by a neck. The winner is from a good family which includes Dawson City and the prolific winning pointer Lucette Annie. Neil Mclean, who holds the pointing licence for Kayley Woollacott’s yard remarked, “ He is from a big and backward family and hung left a bit. He would prefer top of the ground.”

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP: DART VALE & HALDON HARRIERS POINT TO POINT AT BUCKFASTLEIGH 17 MARCH 2019

Thirteen hungry looking bookies {unlucky for some) provided an ominous line up at the old Buckfastleigh racecourse, and it wasn’t long before the punters were feeding them with folding notes.The going was very soft / heavy with a definite premium on stamina.

I was guilty of chucking a few scraps at the books all afternoon, starting with Jo Supple’s mount Skinflint (4-5 to 6-4 fav) in the opener. His drifting should have sounded alarm bells, but he had run really well here when beaten a neck on the opening day of the season over the shorter trip before picking up his maiden over a similar distance at Great Trethew. On Sunday he backed out of it at the top of the hill; in the guise of a non stayer. The winner Cloudy Music (solid 4’s) certainly does stay well and toughed it out ahead of Missyladie (4;s to 7-2) who ran a fair race. Native Gamut was supported from 10’s to 7’s but made no show. I would not give up on him though.

Whenharrymetsally (9-4) has become a legend in these parts and took her career tally to 14 when holding the rallying Welsh challenger Spencer Moon (4-6 to1-2 fav) in the Men’s Open.The favourite was bidding for his sixth successive win, but the concession of 11 lbs proved just too much.

Darren Edwards rode his 250th point to point winner when Pistol Shoot (4’s in a place to 6-4 fav) trotted up in the Intermediate. Jabbea (7-4) travelled like a dream and looked sure win at the top of the hill, but he emptied alarmingly forcing Martin McIntyre to pull him up before the final jump when still in second position..

The shock of the day came in the Ladies’ Open. The normally reliable Dicky Bob (1-5 fav op 1-6} lost his jockey when clipping the top of the fifth fence.This left Belharbour Two (4-1) to take the prize without too much fuss.

I backed the four-year-old Feu Des Malberaux (3’s to 5-2 jt fav} in the first division of the Open Maiden. He looked a nice strong sort in the paddock and comes from the capable Joe Tickle yard. He ran well on his debut to finish second – but you don’t get paid out on seconds. The winner Matt’s Legacy (the other 5-2 jt fav) had been dodgy at the start a few times, but despite giving the four-year-old 18 lbs, this Welsh challenger with Byron Moorcroft on board won on merit.

The other Maiden division looked like going the way of the four-year-old Falloway Dubreau (6-4 to 11-10 fav) who held a two lengths lead at the top of the hill but was collared by 14-1 outside Robin Why Not on the run in. The winner, nicely ridden by Darren Andrews, was wearing first time cheek pieces, but had been a frustrating character with several places on his CV. This was consolation for the Joe Tickle yard but not for me. Having thought that Robin was a value bet I hesitated and left it. Lose your dash – lose your cash….

The getting out stakes went to the promising Minimalistic (4-6 fav) who revelled in the testing ground under Josh Newman and won cheekily as Beuvron (6-1) tried to make a race of it.

Ah well, a few quid down but a good day’s pointing. Try again next weekend.

Trainer Heidi Lewis has four entries in the opening Pannell Commercials-sponsored Members race, Belharbour Two won last weekend at Buckfastleigh, so may bypass this meeting. Acadian is another of the Lewis team entries who would be a short price here with the bookies, having won well at Wadebridge. They may have to tackle Cloudy Music from the Summersby yard, also a winner last weekend, should go close if turning up for a quick fire double under jockey Darren Edwards, who has just clocked up his 250th winner.

The feature race of the day is the Condy Mathias Mixed Open which is a qualifier for finals at both Cheltenham and Stratford in May. Local trainer Dean Summersby has entered Chosen Lucky, a winner of 11 out of his 14 starts to date , with recent wins at Wadebridge and Great Trethew, and could see Darren Edwards back on board to set the pace here. Entry Jack Snipe is the highest rated having won an Open at Badbury Rings under jockey Shane Quinlan for trainer Robert Hawker, but also holds an entry at both Milbourne St Andrew and Ston Easton this weekend. Navanman (John Heard) is another Open winner and he has clocked up four wins this season including two Mixed Opens and an Open at Charlton Horthorne two weeks ago and will need to defy top weight under regular jockey Bryan Carver, who himself rode a Hunter Chase winner at Exeter earlier this week. The combination are also entered at Milborne St Andrew on Saturday. The popular grey Dicky Bob for trainer Verity Nicholls, is already a dual course winner, and could be a likely runner to score his hat-trick at the course. He could again be partnered by young jockey Tomasina Eyston who had an early unlucky unseat last weekend at Buckfastleigh.

Awesome Tunes for Ed Walker’s team has been progressing in the right direction and could snatch the AC Worth-sponsored Confined race with seconds at Wadebridge and Bishops Court. Clondaw Bunny looks promising having won a Restricted at Great Trethew, as is new recruit Irish import to Gordon Chambers yard Ballyvodock, with any market support worth noting.

Accordini won well under jockey James King at Howick in February, and is a suggestion in the Tinhay Building Supplies-sponsored Restricted race. Soul Kaliber,another out of Dean Summersby’s yard looks progressive and could follow up on his three-quarter length win at Bishops Court followed by a second to Manofmanywords at Cothelstone last weekend if not finding this race comes too soon.

PREVIEW: Lamerton Point-To-Point at Kilworthy on Sunday 24th March 2019

Written by: Donna Harris

Kilworthy near Brentor, Tavistock is the location for next weekend’s meeting in the Devon & Cornwall area, where the Lamerton Hunt stage their event on Sunday March 24th. Seven races are on offer with a start time of 1pm. 86 entries have been received.

The feature race of the day is the Condy Mathias Mixed Open which is a qualifier for finals at both Cheltenham and Stratford in May. Local trainer Dean Summersby has entered Chosen Lucky, a winner of 11 out of his 14 starts to date , with recent wins at Wadebridge and Great Trethew, and could see Darren Edwards back on board to set the pace here. Entry Jack Snipe is the highest rated having won an Open at Badbury Rings under jockey Shane Quinlan for trainer Robert Hawker, but also holds an entry at both Milbourne St Andrew and Ston Easton this weekend. Navanman (John Heard) is another Open winner and he has clocked up four wins this season including two Mixed Opens and an Open at Charlton Horthorne two weeks ago and will need to defy top weight under regular jockey Bryan Carver, who himself rode a Hunter Chase winner at Exeter earlier this week. The combination are also entered at Milborne St Andrew on Saturday. The popular grey Dicky Bob for trainer Verity Nicholls, is already a dual course winner, and could be a likely runner to score his hat-trick at the course. He could again be partnered by young jockey Tomasina Eyston who had an early unlucky unseat last weekend at Buckfastleigh.

Trainer Heidi Lewis has four entries in the opening Pannell Commercials-sponsored Members race, Belharbour Two won last weekend at Buckfastleigh, so may bypass this meeting. Acadian is another of the Lewis team entries who would be a short price here with the bookies, having won well at Wadebridge. They may have to tackle Cloudy Music from the Summersby yard, also a winner last weekend, should go close if turning up for a quick fire double under jockey Darren Edwards, who has just clocked up his 250th winner.

Where’s Wilma will be well fancied in the Jockey Club and Langdon Transport-sponsored Mares Maiden race, after her recent second at Bishops Court for the outside raider Michael Watson, along with Jill Dennis’s Deise Gold having shown some consistent decent place form.

Another team Summersby entry Banco de Logos looks a promising prospect with place form at the Buckfastleigh meetings and this track may suit for him to get his head in front in the PPORA and Steve Luxton & Yvonne Watson Memorial Open Maiden race.Doctor Wong(Keegan Kirby) and Five Gold Bars (Robert Hawker) have both scored seconds recently at the Charlton Horethorne track and either could prove dangerous if making the trip here.

Awesome Tunes for Ed Walker’s team has been progressing in the right direction and could snatch the AC Worth-sponsored Confined race with seconds at Wadebridge and Bishops Court. Clondaw Bunny looks promising having won a Restricted at Great Trethew, as is new recruit Irish import to Gordon Chambers yard Ballyvodock, with any market support worth noting.
