The opening Winston Pincombe-sponsored members race could see the Dean Summersby top novice mare Cloudy Music take on either of the Mike Vanstone entries Lawsons Thorns or Lure Des Pres who both won at this course last weekend under Josh Newman. All three are also entered in the Intermediate race here and it will be interesting to see which race the trainers select.

The Open Maiden race has been sponsored by Riverside Caravan Park and has attracted many horses which have recently gone close in progressing from Maiden races, these include Welsh raiders Basher Brian(Byron Moorcroft), Little Brian (Callum Griffiths),  along with Long Mile Road (Jason Warner) the horse having consistently finished second and is sure to win soon, and the Getaway-sired Spring Break for Will Biddick could improve on his placed run at Cothelstone and seal the gentleman’s area title for the jockey.

Dean Summersby’s Soul Kaliber is entered in the Exmoor Hay & Straw -sponsored Intermediate race, and connections will be hoping that the rain forecast for this week is correct, and they can make up for their disappointment of their missed run at Stratford last week. The Little Acers Racing Club have had tremendous fun with their horses with the Summersby team this season, with Soul Kaliber under Darren Edwards winning three races to date, including the most recent at Trebudannon when he came home a three-quarter length winner ahead of Awesome Tunes.

The feature race of the day looks to be the Witheridge Garage-sponsored Men’s Open race which has attracted 17 entries. These include the top rated Fly West from the Ed Walker team, with the recent showery weather he could get the give in the going he prefers and clock up another win for Will Biddick. They could come up against some hot opposition in recent course winner Matts Legacy for trainer Luke Price and jockey Byron Moorcroft. The combination won the Intermediate race here at the Dulverton meeting, having been left a dozen lengths behind at the start. Ramble On another from the Luke Price yard could be a danger having won well at Kingston Blount. Recent Huntingdon Hunter Chase winner Saffron Wells, for trainer Mark Hoskins, could be a ride for Darren Edwards who is still in touch for regaining the gentleman’s area title.

There’s No Panic could appear in the Greenslade Taylor & Hunt-sponsored Ladies Open under Ella Orrtewell, and should run well if recovering from his unfortunate slip up when leading at the last bend at the Exmoor meeting here. There are 13 entries which also include Ramble On (Luke Price) mentioned previously, and the Dr Massini-sired Beggers Velvet for trainer Francesca Nimmo. Beggers Velvet ran well at Garthorpe earlier this month, coming home the 12 length winner of the Conditions race there, to add to the veteran geldings 9 Point wins and two Hunter Chase victories, he could prove the main danger if reproducing that form.
