All posts by Devon & Cornwall Point-To-Point Area Website

The Devon & Cornwall Point-To-Point area ranges from Trebudannon in Cornwall in the West to Bratton Down on Exmoor in the East, and has the longest season in the country with Bishops Court often hosting a meeting on the opening weekend and the area hosting the traditional season finale at Umberleigh in June, often with one or more national or area championships decided on the day. There is a Devon & Cornwall meeting on most weekends during the season, so there is always plenty of good racing to see nearby, with both small and large local training yards often competing against visitors from Wessex, Wales and the Midlands. Pointing is a great day out for a family with free entry for children under 16 and most courses welcome dogs on leads 'The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.'

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – TIVERTON STAGHOUNDS

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – TIVERTON STAGHOUNDS

The stipulated spectator ticket allocation of 1,500 was sold out so there was much more of a real pointing atmosphere at Bratton Down.

An array of 10 bookies looking hungry for business lay in wait for the punters, who struck first blow as Dr Rhythm (6-4 to evens fav) atoned for his two recent falls in the Hunt race. Fly McIntyre always looked in control on the jolly, who jumped without blemish this time, and had four lengths in hand of a spirited effort from Broughtons Rhythm (7-1). Dual course winner Lawsons Thorns (10-1) was pulled up but the 12-year-old has earned himself retirement.

Despite the early success for the punters it was about a score draw at the end of the day. I had backed Businessman at 8-1 when he was mugged on the line at the first Bratton meeting, but missed the early 4-1 here so left it ( SP 6-4 fav at the off.) That was a good job because he looked ill at ease on the quicker ground and could only finish fifth. The Teresa Clark trained seven-year-old mare Bennys Miracle was friendless from 4’s to 7’s, but that did not stop her as she scuttled up the hill like a runaway train with four lengths to spare over Mad for Action (14-1) and Top Cliche (20-1).

Largy Mountain (4-6 to 1-2 fav) was bidding for his fourth win in a row in the Intermediate under James King. I had a feeling that Awesome Tunes (6’s to 9-2), whose friends call him Elvis, would raise the Cornish flag here, and he certainly relished going left handed on a quick track. Don’t ask me why I didn’t back him. We punters know the feeling as Darren Edwards steered him round to put Largy Mountain in his place.

It is almost inconceivable that Los Alamos (11-10/ evens) is a point-to-pointer. The highly bred Galileo gelding should be performing at Royal Ascot, but instead he has become a Bratton Down specialist and gave weight and a beating to his nine opponents here. River Myth (5-2 out to 4’s) turned in her usual game effort to chase home the winner, and third placed Eric the Third (6’s touched 8’s) was always in the fighting line.

Moscow Prices (evens out to 7-4) also seems to relish this moorland course and readily followed up last week’s Bratton win. Ridden more positively this time, the consistent 11-year-old travelled well for Lucy Mager and drew away up the hill. Runner up Mahler Style (10’s to 7’s) has been running well but find it hard to win in this class, whilst Wotzizname (2’s to 5-4 fav) could not quite match his recent winning effort and probably found the ground too quick for him.

The final race of the season in the area saw a very fit Warwickshire raider Fan Club Aulmes (uneasy 2-1 fav) step up on his Kingston Blount run to catch front running O’Faolains Lad (11-2) in the home straight. A quite expensive store now with Fran Nimmo, he had won a strong Mollington Maiden and it would be no surprise to see the winner returned to racing under rules. Five-year-old mare Daisy Yeats was a springer in the market for this event (20’s to 7’s). She is nicely bred, was not pushed and is worth a notebook entry for the future.

Well that is it for another season. Between October and June with a lengthy half time break, the Devon & Cornwall area managed to complete 11 of the 25 scheduled fixtures in the area as this best forgotten COVID ravaged season came to a bright conclusion. No fireworks, but a fully fledged rainbow made an appearance after the last race. A big well done to all the organisers, particularly the point-to- point secretaries, who worked miracles in ensuring that their meetings went ahead against all odds.

TIVERTON STAGHOUNDS AT BRATTON DOWN

REPORT – TIVERTON STAGHOUNDS AT BRATTON DOWN

GRANVILLE TAYLOR

“My necessaries are embark’d: farewell

Hamlet, Act 1 scene 3, William Shakespeare

It was farewell last Sunday to this shortened COVID hit season with just 11 fixtures completed out of the 25 scheduled for the area. Well done to all the organisers who managed to put on meetings amidst all the pressures.

A total of 60 runners lined up for the six races as the Tiverton Staghounds brought down the curtain for the Devon & Cornwall area at Bratton Down. With the closed doors now partly open, all 1,500 tickets had been sold, so the vibrant atmosphere of a decent sized crowd had at last begun a return to normality. The best bet of the day was probably to take a chance with the long queue for Mr Styles farmhouse ice cream.

James King will become Tattersalls champion National point- to -point jockey for the first time this year when the season ends in Oxfordshire next weekend. Five of his 32 winners to date have come at the three late-season Bratton Down fixtures.

A double for King on Sunday was initiated when Los Alamos, in the colours of his uncle Jason Warner, followed up his recent course win in the Men’s Open. The new champion completed his double when Fran Nimmo saddled her 20th winner of the campaign in the 10- runner Totnes & Bridgetown Races Company Restricted.

Los Alamos is by Galileo and showed all the resolution of his illustrious sire by fending off the strong challenges of River Myth and Eric the Third up the punishing final climb. Jason Warner is the Tattersalls National leading owner this year with 14 winners to date, with the possibility of adding more at Kingston Blount on the final weekend.

Apart from his riding prowess, James King has also been busy as a trainer, saddling five winners from a handful of runners this year. He was in the limelight again as a rider when the Fran Nimmo trained Fan Club Aulmes landed the Restricted under a very confident ride. This £32,000 store had a couple of runs for Dan Skelton and was following up his Mollington Maiden win for the Nimmo yard.

Darren Edwards has secured his fourth Devon & Cornwall jockeys championship this year and was successful on his only ride of the day when Awesome Tunes beat the James King ridden Largy Mountain (1-2 favourite) in the Exmoor Hay & Straw Ltd Intermediate. “He likes to go left handed and hugs the bales on the bends,” remarked the jockey. The winner was acquired from Ross Oliver and is now owned and trained by Ryan Chapman who said, “We call Elvis. He is a family horse and anybody can ride him. I cantered him on the beach at Mawgan Porth yesterday. He must have good to firm ground.”

11-year-old Moscow Prices took his point-to-point tally into double figures with a typically game performance in the competitive Greenslade Taylor Hunt Ladies’ Open. Owned in partnership by his rider Lucy Mager and Kim Tripp, and trained at Weston-Super-Mare by his rider, Moscow Prices, like the Men’s Open winner Los Alamos, had returned from winning at the Exmoor meeting eight days ago. “I didn’t want to hit the front so early but I could barely hold him and he was hard to pull up afterwards,” said the rider.

Martin (“Fly”) McIntyre came in for the winning ride on Dr Rhythm in the Winston Pincombe Land Rovers Hunt race as Josh Newman had not recovered from injuries sustained in a fall from that horse on this course last weekend. This time the eight-year-old was foot perfect and had too much pace for Broughtons Rhythm in the closing stages. “He just needed a bit of help with his jumping and was absolutely cantering,” said the rider, acknowledging a fine training performance by Keith Cumings.

Bennys Miracle had very few friends in the betting ring, drifting out to 7-1, but that did not stop the lightly raced seven-year-old from beating front running Mad for Action (Abigail Lewis) in the Riverside Caravan Park Open Maiden. Trained on the Quantocks by Teresa Clark for owners Mike and Naomi Roe, Bennys Miracle stormed up the final climb in the hands of Rob Hawker. ”He is a better ground horse who could go summer jumping,” said the trainer, with the jockey adding, “He fell apart in the mud last time. I needed a lead because it is a long way up the hill.”

As the dark clouds rolled in after the last race, and a rainbow straddled the moor, The Devon & Cornwall jockeys awards were presented. Darren Edwards took the Men’s title with Chloe Emsley taking the Lady riders’ award. Conor Houlihan strode away with the male novice award and 17-year-old Charlotte Summersby won the female equivalent.

Both the Greenslade Taylor Hunt-sponsored Ladies Open and the Men’s Open races have received top entries from around the country. These include Moscow Prices (Lucy Mager), Board Of Trade (Ed Walker), Fox Valley (Tom Ellis) and Summer Sounds for the Fran Nimmo team,  all holding claims in the Ladies race. Whilst in the Men’s Open recent winner Thumb Stone Blues another from the Fran Nimmo team could provide another thrilling battle between him under jockey James King and Chameron for either Jack Andrews or Ben Sutton to ride, With the previous two mentioned also holding entries at the Garthorpe meeting on Saturday, this could leave the race open for Bridge of Spies  to follow up on his impressive win at last Saturday’s meeting under top Novice jockey Conor Houlihan.

South Tetcott Preview extract

This fast relatively flat track will provide some exciting competitive racing and the opening Conditions Race Hill Garage-sponsored race has hot entries, such as Party Tunes another for the Dean Summersby team under jockey Darren Edwards. Definate Dilema is one out of the Will Biddick yard who looks to be a runner at Stratford for jockey Conor Houlihan, but if running here would be definitely dangerous. Hadmeathehello ia another to mention who could battle it out if the latter doesn’t run at the Bratton meeting on Saturday

South Tetcott Preview extract

The Simpkins Edwards-sponsored Mixed Open holds good entries with Chameron for trainer Sam Loxton, looking to follow up on his Hunter Chase win at Leicester, and Thumb stone blues who won at this track at the previous meeting under leading gentleman jockey James King if not running at Kingston Blount on Sunday. Southfield Theatre also holds an entry for the Sara Bradstock team and would be highly followed, but holds an entries at Stratford this Friday and Kingston Blount on Sunday, so connections will decide where he is to run.

Outside raider Sir Mangan for jockey Ben Sutton, who is already on a seasons hat-trick of wins this season should run well again for the Alan Hill team.

Both the Ladies and Men’s Open races have attracted top class entries. In the Bray Leino-sponsored Ladies race Virak stands out for the Sam Loxton team, having won his last four races which include Hunter Chase wins at both Wincanton and Musselburgh under regular jockey Natalie Parker, however he will probably run at Stratford on Friday evening, this could leave the race for Copain de Classe to snatch, he is another ex National Hunt entry for the Loxton team, and could improve on his third to Famous Clermont at Cothelstone, The Roestone for the Robert Chanin team should be there among the finishers if reproducing his win at Cherrybrook under Martin McIntyre.

Exmoor Preview extract

The Moore Scarrott Accountants-sponsored Men’s Open has attracted another Loxton team entry in Chameron who won a Hunter Chase at Leicester in February. Chameron’s recent run at Cothelstone saw him finishing second having had a few jumping errors which could have cost him the race that day, although he also holds an entry at Upcott Cross on Monday and connection smay choose there for him to run. Upcott Cross winner River Myth entered for trainer Stuart Sampson, will be looking to follow up on her run at Upcott Cross when coming home the four-length winner that day and has the benefit of a mares weight allowance although she too holds an entry for the Upcott meeting. Recent runner up in a Hunter Chase at Leicester The Muclair for the Camilla Scott team can’t be left out of the equation, they had an unlucky fall last time out at Upcott Cross when ridden by Finn Muirhead.

The opening Andrew Maddox-sponsored Restricted race could be a battle between recent winners Edabean and Florrie Webb if not competing at Cothelstone during the week and with Will Biddick on the sidelines having sustained an injury last weekend. Don’t Ask Us for the Keith Cumings team is one who could follow up on a recent  maiden win at Upcott Cross for Jockey Josh Newman. And Mustmeetforapint has been unlucky since winning his maiden at Wadebridge and could bounce back here to challenge.

Rolling Dylan is proving to be a great schoolmaster for young jockey Tom Dixon and talented trainer Laura Parker when winning Members race at Holnicote. Phillip Hobbs still has an interest in Rolling Dylan who was impressive when running under rules winning over 56k in prize money.
