REPORT: AXE VALE HARRIERS AT STAFFORD CROSS, SUNDAY 28TH APRIL 2019

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

“The sun has come out and the air is vivid with spring light”

Byron Caldwell Smith 1849-1877

Although substantial watering had produced good ground at the popular Stafford Cross track, the proliferation of meetings around Easter meant small fields. This flat track suits the speedy types and sub-six minutes times tend to be the norm.

Bryan Carver was the jockey in form at the Axe Vale Harriers fixture, completing a double thanks to Earth Leader and Skinflint

Roger Penny’s Earth Leader made all to win the Intermediate, fending off Oxfordshire challenger Captiva Island after a display of quick jumping. “He is a strong travelling horse who has improved throughout the season,” remarked the jockey, who is also making the most of his chances in Paul Nicholls’ yard. This win would have proved a tonic for trainer Rose Loxton, who is currently in hospital.

Carver completed his double when sending the Gerry Supple trained Skinflint to the front four out in the Restricted before coasting to an eight lengths success. The Irish born jockey was deputising for Jo Supple who had good news about her recuperation from an injury sustained at the Cotley last month. Having partnered Skinflint earlier in the season she remarked, “He has strengthened up now. This quicker track suits him.”

Liam Harrison is another young jockey making the most of his opportunities. The 16-year-old rode his 9th winner of the season and has a good chance of lifting the Fuller’s Novice Riders title. Apple’s Queen looked to be making hard work of disposing of his two rivals round the final bend, but the 2-5 favourite responded well to hold Theatre Evening after the pair had jumped the last together.

The Last But One’s stiff penalty was offset by jockey Nathan Vergne’s claim in the Mixed Open and this proved decisive as Tom Malone’s useful pointer just held the late thrust of Minella Fifty. “He could run again at Flete next week and I hope we can get him to the Ladies’ hunter chase at Stratford at the end of the season,” said the owner, better known as a leading bloodstock agent.

The four-year-old Raise Your Hand might have caught the bloodstock agent’s eye in winning the Open Maiden. Making his racecourse debut, this promising type got jockey Darren Andrews off the 13-winner mark, quickening to beat the equally promising A Tipple or Two (Will Biddick). The winner was, “bought out of a Tipperary field,” by former point-to-point jockey Martin Cooney who came over from Ireland to see the race. “I broke him and got him going then sent him over to Christopher (Barber) to train. “He will be a nice horse after summer grass and could go to the sales,” reported the young trainer, another generation of the Barber pointing dynasty.

Will Biddick added to his record breaking tally with a smooth success on Tuff Nano in the Confined. This mare is unbeaten since joining Teresa Clark’s yard last December. “She will go on any ground and might run again this season as she still needs educating,” said the Spaxton based trainer.

Tuff Nano was an inspired £10,000 buy at Ascot sales, but the Hunt race winner cost connections only £600. This was Dry ol’ Party who had already rewarded owner/trainer Stuart Payne by winning the Mendip Ladies’ and followed up here under Chloe Emsley.

REPORT: EGGESFORD AT UPCOTT CROSS, SATURDAY 27TH APRIL 2019

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

It’s a warm wind, the west wind, full of birds’ cries;
I never hear the west wind but tears are in my eyes.
For it comes from the west lands, the old brown hills,
And April’s in the west wind, and daffodils.

John Masefield, Salt-Water Ballads, (1902), “The West Wind”.

On a very windy day at Upcott Cross , the Eggesford turned out to be a memorable meeting . Presumably the weather forecast, yellow warnings or silly threatening names they now tag on to low pressure systems put a lot of people off. They missed point-to-point history in the making as the record for the highest career total by a jockey in Britain was broken.

Cornishman Will Biddick rode a double to set a new record of 415 pointing winners in the saddle. The record of 414 had stood since Richard Burton retired in 2011. Biddick, 32, who rode his first winner at Stafford Cross in 2004, immediately superseded Burton as champion jockey in 2012, and claimed that title on six consecutive occasions, setting a personal record himself with a seasonal total of 68 winners in 2015. He was runner up to Alex Edwards for the National title last season, and the pair are vying for the Fuller’s sponsored Men’s championship again this year

The progressive Crown of Thorns initiated Biddick’s double, making all the running in the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate. The Pidsley family gelding has proved a shrewd buy at Goffs Doncaster sales last September out of Noel Meade’s yard. , The Sarah Pidsley trained six-year-old was scoring for the fourth time this season. A feat his previous Giggingstown owners would have enjoyed.

Biddick’s record breaking ride was Kernel Victor who shook off Cloudy Music in the home straight to win the Confined. Trainer Ed Walker shares ownership of this useful pointer with popular West country stalwart John Pearn , and the gelding has fared even better with blinkers applied. “It is nice to get the record, but my main aim is to get the title back this year,” said the Truro born rider who now operates a pointing yard at Ditcheat, Somerset. Amidst rousing cheers, his fellow jockeys joined in the celebrations by promptly ducking him in the paddock water trough.

Darren Andrews is enjoying his best season in the saddle and followed up a Hunt race victory on River Myth, by completing a double thanks to the promising Dr Kananga.

River Myth upset odds-on favourite Navanman, already a five-times winner this season in the Hunt race. The result was quite emphatic though as Andrews sent the mare about her business at the final ditch.

The 26-year-old jockey went on to steer Dr Kananga home in the second Maiden division. “He was only broken last September. We have been trying to find safe ground. He really wants it soft and may go for the Aintree bumper next month,” reported trainer Ben Clarke.

The other section of the Maiden saw Banco De Logos finally get his head in front under Darren Edwards. Bookmaker David Phillips sponsored this race and was calling the winner at evens at the off. Consistently placed, the eight –year-old rallied to beat Willaldo after looking vulnerable at the penultimate. “We thought he could win two or three on the bounce after his second to Road To Rome at Buckfastleigh, but he hasn’t been quite right and has been frustrating,” commented trainer Dean Summersby.

Willaldo carried Bryan Carver wearing the colours made famous by Oliver Carter ’s top horses. The rider had earlier entered the winner’s enclosure as four-year-old Getaround fulfilled the promise of his Monmouthshire second last month by running away with the young horses Maiden. Ella Pickard trains Getaround for her sister Ruby. “We bought him at Goffs Land Rover sales last June and he is a very exciting prospect,” exclaimed the young trainer. It was good to see Martin Pipe forsaking the glitter of Sandown’s jumping finale to present the prizes for this David Pipe sponsored race.

Fergus Gillard and Herbert Park

Fergus Gillard, who works for the David Pipe yard, had his 17th birthday two days before, and celebrated in the best possible way with a cool winning ride on Margaret Alford’s Herbert Park in the Mixed Open. Saffron Wells set up a 20 lengths lead and was still well clear at the third last, but Gillard was confident enough to delay his challenge on the quirky Ray Alford trained gelding as long as possible, sweeping into the lead jumping the last. “I had a lot underneath me and didn’t want to get there too soon,” seemed a bit of an understatement from the rider, yet another promising jockey to emerge from the pony racing circuit.

WILL BIDDICK BREAKS BRITISH RECORD

By Granville Taylor

Truro born point-to-point jockey Will Biddick, now based at Ditcheat, Somerset, wrote himself into the sporting history books at the Eggesford meeting at Upcott Cross on Saturday (27 April).

Biddick, 32, broke the record for a British point-to-point rider when achieving his 415th career victory in the saddle, beating the previous record set by Richard Burton, who retired in 2011.

He rode his first winner in 2004 and achieved another personal landmark of 68 wins in a season in 2015. After he had held the British title on six consecutive occasions, he was superseded by Alex Edwards last year.

Asked whether the record total was more important to him than being champion jockey, he told me, “It is nice to get the record, but my main aim is to get the title back this year.” As I write he has 27 winners, just one behind Alex Edwards.

Much respected by fellow jockeys, he took it in good heart when amidst rousing cheers they celebrated the occasion by manhandling him into the paddock water trough after his win on Kernel Victor

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – DARTMOOR POINT-TO-POINT, FLETE PARK, EASTER SATURDAY 20th APRIL 2019

The Easter meetings traditionally attract huge crowds (and often small fields), and subsequently a different atmosphere to “normal” pointing days.

Flete Park was absolutely packed out on Saturday this year, and it was like a massive loose scrum in the narrow area between the bookies and the racecourse rails. The bookmakers could not take bets quickly enough, despite opening up (short) for the next race as soon as the runners had gone past the post in the previous race (Barbury Castle layers take note). I saw quite a few “occasional” betters putting their pound on at 4-6 when 6-4 was available by shopping around.

The Dapper Fox opened at 1-2 for the feature race over four miles before drifting to evens at the off. Proven stayer Le Clo de la Londe was sent off at 2-1 with 4’s seen on a few boards earlier. The novice rider on Alice’s Star could not use her claim, but there were nibbles for her mount at 4’s and 7-2 (probably from girls named Alice). The useful veteran chaser There’s No Panic could be backed at 7-2 and his rider did make good use of her 5lbs claim. The young jockey showed plenty of dash (as befitted being tutored by a champion ) and won quite easily in the end.

Neetside was a genuine 4-5 chance for the Restricted, but was carried out by a loose horse at half way. Predestined (8-1) returned to form to beat 2-1 second favourite Cornflower Blue.

Punters also got it wrong in the seven-runner Hunt race when Mic’s Delight, in his last race prior to honourable retirement (evens fav opened 4-6), was collared by Its A Steal (4’s to 7-2) in the home straight.

Another favourite to open very short before easing out was Sylvies Dance (1-2 to a backable 5-4), who won the young horses Maiden in a canter. Cottage Rose (3-1) and The Dartmoor Rose (5-2) both wilted before filling the places.

It was good to see the veteran rider Alex Muirhead (well into his 50’s) back in the saddle after the serious injury he sustained at Chipley Park in January. He finished third on Ballyculla (9-4 to 2’s) behind Uncle Jimmy (5-2 to 2’s). Ben Robarts pulled up here on Jaboltiski (7-4 fav), but fared better on Beat The Tide (7-2) by winning the Confined. Wind Tor (4-5 fav) was disappointing.

The well backed Dancing Dave (5-2 to 11-10 fav) just got up on the line under Biddick to force a dead heat in the concluding Maiden with Deise Gold (6-1).

Biddick set to make record score

Will Biddick set to make record score
Will Biddick set to make record score

Britain’s record score for wins in the sport of point-to-pointing could be broken this weekend by Will Biddick.

He needs just one success to equal the 414 winners achieved by Shropshire’s Richard Burton until his retirement in 2011. Biddick, 32, who lives in Somerset, is set to be in action at the Devon meetings of Upcott Cross on Saturday and Stafford Cross on Sunday.

It was at Stafford Cross, in April 2004, that Biddick rode his first winner. Born in Cornwall, the son of a farmer who trained point-to-pointers, he later moved to Herefordshire to work for trainer Venetia Williams, and while there rode a winner at the 2009 Cheltenham Festival on Something Wells.

A few days later he finished runner-up in the Midlands Grand National on the Williams-trained Flintoff and opted to try his hand as a conditional (professional) jockey, but battles with the scales meant he soon switched back to amateur status and a return to point-to-pointing (where the weights carried are generally higher).

He finished third in the 2010/11 men’s championship to Burton, and from that point established his own hold over the title, winning it for six years in a row from 2011/12 to 2016/17. During much of that time he was riding for the powerful Dorset yard of Richard Barber, and then that trainer’s grandson, Somerset-based Jack.

Biddick had to give best to new Foran Equine men’s champion Alex Edwards in 2017/18, and the two riders are now involved in another battle for the championship, which Shropshire-based Edwards leads 28 to 25.

Other career highlights for Biddick include a score of 68 point-to-point wins in 2014/15, easily a British record for victories in one season, and a success in Ireland’s prestigious Champion Hunters Chase at Punchestown (2018 on Caid Du Berlais). He also finished second in the 2006 Fulke Walwyn Kim Muir Chase at the Cheltenham Festival on Mon Mome, one month before landing a handicap chase on the same horse at Aintree. Three years later Mon Mome won the Grand National under jockey Liam Treadwell.

Navanman also holds an entry in the Opening Members race which has been sponsored by The Rangemoors & Ashgrove Kitchen co. It could be a popular family win for the Heard family, and could see him follow up on his recent win at Milborne St Andrew last month under jockey Bryan Carver. River Myth could be a likely challenger, but would need to find a couple of lengths improvement, as had to settle for second when the two met at Charlton Horthorne last month.
