Preview: Tiverton Point-to-Point at Chipley Park on Sunday 23rd January 2022

Westcountry Pointing heads to Chipley Park, where the Tiverton Foxhounds host their event this coming Sunday 23rd January. The action will come thick and fast, attracting top entries from around the country.

The feature race of the day is the INEOS Grenadier Mixed Open race. With a prize fund of £1000, £600 of which will go to the winner, this race promises to be a thriller, with entries from top horses Highway Jewel a Hunter Chase winner at Cheltenham last April for the Bradley Gibbs team, Virak a winner of over £200k under rules and now a winning schoolmaster for Olive Nicholls, Fifty Shades a treble winner between the flags last season for the Nick Williams team, and Singapore Saga (John Heard) another who has won this season when staying on dourly to win at Wadebridge. They could be taken on by a new popular syndicate owned horse, Board of Trade (Ed Walker), with many owners looking forward to this horses future racing in the area.

A total of 92 entries have been received for the seven race card, which starts at 12 Noon. The Stoneman Engineering-sponsored Members race opens the day, and of those entered, Jeremy Central stands out for trainer/owner Tom Malone, having won last weekend at Buckfastleigh, and could score again if recovering from the tiring conditions there. The highly rated mare River Myth, for the Stuart Sampson team, has the benefit of a mares weight allowance, which could prove crucial up the long homeward hill. Where’s Wilma could defy her top weight and give local trainer Michael Watson a hat-trick of wins this season, with the mare already winning at Badbury and Barbury Castle under jockey Matt Hampton .

The Jockey Club and Clarke Willmott-sponsored Mares and Fillies Maiden race could be a steal for outside raider Boss Baby (David Gibbs), having enjoyed some decent place form in Ireland before heading over and finishing a length second at Holnicote last season. They could come up against entry Ask The Lady, for the inform Dean Summersby/ Darren Edwards combination, if progressing from her run at Wadebridge, when finishing fifth.

In the Mount Pleasant Inn & friends of the late Geoff White-sponsored Open Maiden race, which holds 17 entries, Arv Way There (Hugh Tomas), Ask Alfie (Les Jefford) and Red Cap ( Robert Chanin) are all suggestions who, at a glance, look to be progressive on their place form this season.

Whilst in the Exeter Racecourse-sponsored Intermediate race, Port O’Clock’s connections will be looking for him to follow-up on his Wadebridge win last month for team Summersby. Foot Loose (Aaron Butterfield) a winner at two of the Larkhill meetings this season, had to settle for a one-length second at the first Larkhill November meeting behind The Big Sting, who is also entered here for trainer Chris Barber, with Foot Loose’s connections possibly turning up looking to reverse the placings here. Another exciting entry is Indirocco for trainer Tom Ellis and leading lady rider Gina Andrews , who could steal this if making the trip down.

Bloodstock agent Tom Malone’s entry Jeremy Central under jockey Will Biddick, could be switched to race in the Agrii & Mole Valley Farmers-sponsored Restricted. Will is also booked to ride Benny’s Miracle (Teresa Clark) another with a mares weight allowance. They could be taken on by Honey I’m Good (Bradley Gibbs) looking to follow-up on their 10-length win at Barbury. Also recent Wadebridge Maiden winner, Transition Period, another looking progressive for the Dean Summersby/Darren Edwards combination.

Finally up is the Members Conditions race for Novice riders, and if Virak (Sam Loxton) is saved for this race, then he could give promising young jockey Olive Nicholls her second win on him in a month. Broadclyst (Les Jefford) won at Wadebridge under jockey Anna Johnston, and should be fit, whilst Killaro Boy is another having run well recently when finishing three-lengths second at Barbury for the William Pugh team.

The racecourse organisers would also like to mention sponsors GTH– sponsors of Momento’s. Tom Malone Bloodstock– sponsor of Jockeys prizes, Old Mill Accountants for Best Turned Out and Pennymoor Timber, Mr John Dorse & Mr & Mrs A Brooks – sponsors of Doctors & Paramedics who are among those who have made this meeting possible.

Preview: The Modbury Harriers Point-to-Point at Buckfastleigh, Sunday 16th January 2022

The Totnes & Bridgetown-sponsored Mixed Open race is the feature of the day, and the area has to give a huge thanks to the sponsors, as they have supported the area throughout the Covid crises over the past two years. There are some highly rated ex-National Hunt legendary horses among the entries. Silsol a Grade 2 winning hurdle winner, now in training with Will Biddick, for owners the Orttewell family for talented young jockey Ella Orttewel to ride. Also two of the Sam Loxton-trained entries,  Samategal, a Grade 3 winner of the Greatwood Handicap chase at Newbury   who could give young jockey Olive Nicholls a winning ride here, along with Chameron, who had shown some decent form in France before heading over with wins at Garthorpe and Leicester. Trio For Rio could be the one to steal this if travelling down for the Clive Boultbee-Brooks team, having won a Hunter Chase a Cheltenham last season, his jockey Tommie O’Brien will be  keen to score here. Along with Envoy Special having won at Larkhill in December, for young trainer Christopher Barber, another showing his talent training in the pointing field.

The action kicks off at 12 noon, with the Tony Glynn-Scaffolding sponsored Open Maiden race for 4,5 and 6 year-olds, in which His Own Star (Stuart Sampson) could follow up on his second at Barbury, and had some previous decent place form. Between You And Me (Neil Mclean)  ran third at Chaddelsey Corbett last season. Next One Please could provide a pleasing winner for the Chris Barber team, and could go well on his debut run.

Stanley Carpets-sponsor the Restricted race, which could go the way of Fountains Chief for the Teresa Clark team, if recovering from his early fall at last weekends Wadebridge meeting. Catching the eye is Kings Quay for trainer Matt Hampton, having won his maiden last season by a creditable six-lengths at Cherrybrook, and Lagonda could be one of the outside raiders to figure, if following up on his five- lengths second at Larkhill in December for the James Ridley/Tommie O’Brien partnership.

The 10 year old and over Jockey Club – Retraining of Racehorses and Veteran Condition race follows, which looks equally thrilling. Blackwater Bramble for the Alexandra Dunn team won at this course in December 2018, following that up with two Larkhill wins. However the eye is drawn to Molineaux for young jockey Freddie Gingell and team Tizzard, who could improve on their close second they achieved at Larkhill. That day behind Monsieur Gibraltar ridden by Oliver Nicholls. Here she could have the ride on Samategal, who is the highest rated, and if a clear round of jumping,  could give  jockey Olive Nicholls a win here, if connection chose this over the previous race and do not favour next weekends Larkhill meeting as an option. However entry  Silsol is another who could be switched to this race,  proving equally competitive, and give Ella Orttewell, a deserved win at this track.

Toad Hall Cottages sponsor the Open Maiden race for 7 year-olds and upwards in which Riding Shotgun is the highest rated, and will be high in the betting for the Laura Jones team. Bloodstock agent Tom Malone looks to have a hot entry with recent Irish purchase Jeremy Central. Honest Opinion is another catching the eye for the in form Dean Summersby team and could progress here.

Finally up is the Exeter Racecourse-sponsored Intermediate race, which holds a Hunter Chase entry at their finals in April. This looks equally competitive with Famous Clermont ( Chris Barber), Hotel Du Nord (Will Biddick) and Party Tunes (Dean Summersby) among those who the bookies will be juggling with.

This course offers fabulous viewing, easy access alongside the A38 at Dean Prior, hot food and refreshments along with a Real Ale bar and plenty of trade stands. Entry to the course is £15 per person which includes a racecard. Children under 16 are free. Dogs on leads welcome. Course postcode is TQ11 OLT. Live streaming is available pointingdc.co.uk via eventbrite live streaming. Betting available by phoning Dave Phillips on 07810775119.

Preview: North Cornwall point-to-point at the Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge on Sunday 9th January 2022

Kivells sponsor the Mixed Open race which is the feature of the day at the North Cornwall meeting, to be held at the Royal Cornwall show ground, this coming Sunday 9th January. Entries include Sykes for the Nicola Martin team, being the highest rated, could follow-up on their win here at the December meeting under jockey Darren Edwards. Sir Mangan’s connections, the Alan Hill team, will be looking to reverse the form and get home ahead if ttavelling here, having had to settle for one-and a half-length second to Sykes that day under jockey Ben Sutton. On Sir Mangans previous form of five wins last season, this should be an exciting battle. Quite By Chance (Stuart Sampson) is also a strong contender having won the Ladies race here at the December meeting under Lauren Reed. Another lady jockey who could figure here is Natalie Parker on FuFu for the Sally Alner team, should go well on previous decent hurdle form.

The day opens at 11.30am with the Moores of St Wenn-sponsored Members race. Here we could see either of the Dean Summersby entries Port 0’Clock score for Darren Edwards, or Cloudy Music for stable star Charlotte Summersby, who could repeat the success of winning her maiden at this track if coming out fresh.

Roy Davies Food sponsor the Novice Riders race in which jockey Lauren Reed could get a nice tune out of the John Heard-trained Eric The Third, having won at Trebudannon last season and enjoyed a trip around Cheltenham finishing fifth. Broadclyst for the Les Jefford team won both his Maiden and Restricted race here and is another who should go well.

In the Maiden race for four, five and six-year-olds which is sponsored by Heltor, Ribo A Rep and Hillbilly Filly will be flying the flag for the Ed Walker team, who enjoyed saddling a maiden winner at last weeks Larkhill meeting, under stable jockey Chloe Emsley. They will need to fight off the challenge from the promising young horse from the Summersby’s yard Transition Period. Having only been beaten by a head at this track in December under jockey Darren Edwards, connections will be looking for this six-year old gelding to progress soon.

Fountains Chief looks an interesting contender in the Nash and Ferguson-sponsored Restricted race, who could fight out the finish up the steep hill with recent Pyle maiden winner Bucaneros for team Hill, if the yard make the journey down to this track.

Finally up is the Tregawne Holiday Cottages-sponsored Maiden race for seven year-old and upwards, in which Ask The Lady could be another winner for team Summersby if taking to fences after her promising hurdle form. Cuzzicombe (Ed Walker) could follow up on the third place achieved at Bratton Down last season, and Wise Garden (Danielle Kenealy) is another promising young mare who could make the most of her weight allowance, and improve on her fourth place at the December meeting here, with young jockey Charlie Sprake aboard.

This track offers fabulous track-side viewing, a large covered barn containing all on course facilities such as hot food, drinks, bar, bookies and trade stands. Entrance to the course is £12 per person cash only. Children under 16 free. Location is off A39 at the Royal Cornwall Showground,  Wadebridge .

Preview: Cornwall Club Point-to-Point at the Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge on Sunday 5th December 2021

The Cornwall Hunt Club hosts the first of two meetings which are scheduled to be held at the Royal Cornwall Show Ground this season, attracting 65 good qualities from around the country, for this Sunday’s event on 5th December. An early start time of 11.30 to make the most of daylight hours, for the six races on offer.

The Tinks Catering-sponsored Conditions race for Veteran and Novice riders opens the days event, with Eric The Third for the John Heard team catching the eye having won at Trebudannon in April, followed up by a spin around Cheltenham in a Hunter Chase in April finishing reasonably well in mid division, he could be a competitive ride for young jockey Lauren Reed. Their main rival looks to be Moratorium, a recent winner at Dunsmore for jockey Nathan Green and trainer Myles Osbourne. Ex Wincanton Chase winner Hit The Highway will be flying the flag for trainer Will Biddick, who is now making his name among winning trainers, and The Roestone is another entry who cannot be left out of the equation having run a creditable second at this track in 2019 for team Chanin.

Dean Summersby has an excellent strike rate with his young horses, and his team have two entries in the Ice Cream Parlour – Port Issac Maiden race which follows. Honest Opinion had gone close on three occasions in second place last season, and should be progressive now. Another of the Summersby team entries is Transition period who stayed on well to run second at Cothelstone under  area champion jockey Darren Edwards. The Summersby team offer much fun for their syndicate members for the young horses normally purchased out of Ireland. Bloodstock agent Tom Malone is another with a fantastic strike rate with his purchases, and his entry Escapeandevade could well follow up on his second place at Castletown in Ireland this October, and be a winning ride for jockey Will Biddick.

Moores of St Wenn sponsor the Ladies open race in which the Alan Hill-trained Back Bar looks to be one of the bookies favourites if making the trip down to the track for the Alan Hill team, hoping his entry can follow-up on Back Bars three career wins between the flags to date. The eye is drawn to Goldbury for the Parker family team, this game mare having previously won at this track and has a mares weight allowance, she should be well fit to figure here with both trainer Laura Jones and rider Natalie Parker working for top National Hunt trainers themselves, being the Hobbs and Nicholls teams. Robin Gundry has Inch Rock entered for jockey Pippa Glanville, and they should be competitive having had a recent run finishing second at the Dunsmore meeting last month.

Sir Mangan for trainer Alan Hill is the highest rated entry in the R & J Trevarthen Men’s Open race, and could prove difficult to beat having won five out of his six outings to date. Although Sir Mangan could have a few young horses snapping at his heels here up the gruelling uphill finish, with entry Bridge Of Spies for the George Beilby team, and jockey Conor Houlihan looking to improve on their recent second at Dunsmore, when carrying top weight, and is a previous track winner here.

The Exeter Racecourse–sponsored Intermediate race is the first of the seasons qualifiers for the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate final Hunter Chase Final in April next year. Post No Bills is the highest rated and could steal this for outside raider Bradley Gibbs to follow-up on their Restricted win in October at Pyle, although this race could be more competitive with his opposition looking to be entry Minim Mouse for the Chloe Newman team to follow up on her Bratton win and carrying her mares weight allowance, which could prove the key up the finishing hill. Cloudy Music for team Summersby is another with a mares weight allowance and could be a winning ride for Charlotte Summersby. Broadclyst would need to defy top weight, but with a canny ride from jockey Conor Houlihan should be close at the finish.

Finally up is the Lodge & Thomas-sponsored Restricted race, in which Truckers Pass for Team Malone and jockey Will Biddick combination will be likely favourites after their impressive Dunsmore win. Trainer Teresa Clark has two entered, Bennys Miracle & Fountain Chief both who will be well respected on their winning form at Bratton Down and Stratford. Dock of The Bay for the Les Jefford team cannot be left out of the equation if turning up here, after his head win at Badbury last month under Martin McIntyre.

The Large covered barn holding all warming facilities for a winters day out in the country. Facilities include hot and cold food and refreshments, bar, bookies and a number of trade stands which ideal for Christmas shopping. Entrance to the Wadebridge course is a bargain at £12 per person, cash payments only on the gate. Children under 16 go free and dogs on leads welcome.

Written By: Donna Harris

The INEOS Grenadier – sponsored Mixed Open race is the feature of the day at this weekends fixture, to be held at The Dunsmore Club, Silverton meeting this coming Sunday. Being a Cheltenham Foxhunter qualifier it has attracted top rated entries, which include Thumb Stone Blues for last seasons  point-to-point National winning jockey James King, and Chameron who is equally rated for trainer Sam Loxton, with the booking of jockey Ben Sutton to ride. Southfield Theatre is another who could go well for trainer Sara Bradstock, with the family yard already saddling a winner this season.

This meeting offers quality over quantity of entries and the day starts at 12 noon, with The Goffs UK – sponsored Maiden race for four, five & six year old’s, where the Tom Malone-trained Captain Westie could start his maiden career here with Will Biddick booked to ride. They could come up against Park This One who looks to be the ride for Josh Newman and will be looking to improve on their third at Cothelstone in May for trainer Neil Mclean.

In the first Conditions race  entry Thumb Stone Blues should go close if connections choose this race over the Mixed Open. He could come up against Ridgeway Flyer, who had some decent form under rules when with Paul Nicholls, and could be freshened up in the Pointing field and is now in training with Chloe Newman.

In the second Conditions race, which is sponsored by Angela Prouse Mortgage advisors, Bridge Of Spies could go well if defying top weight for the George Beilby team to follow-up on his Flete Park and Bratton Down wins. The Roestone for team Chanin won at this course two seasons ago, and Broadclyst for the Les Jefford team could be another close at the finish.

The Restricted race looks another exciting race with Clever des Assence having won his maiden race at Cothelstone last season for trainer Laura Jones, and has the booking of regular jockey Natalie Parker booked to ride. They could have the Treneer family trained Eole D’un Regard tracking them hoping to steal the race at the finish and improve on their decent place form last season.

The final race of the day is for Maiden horses of seven year & over in which the highly rated Truckers Pass for the Tom Malone/Will Biddick combination setting the standard with his consistent place form under rules when in training with Philip Hobbs.

POSTPONED Preview: East Devon Point-To-Point at Bishops Court, Ottery St Mary – Saturday 30th October 2021

UPDATE: 20th October 2021 at 09:21

Sadly East Devon’s point to point races, due to be held at Ottery St Mary on Saturday, has had to be postponed due to flooding.

Heavy overnight rain has led to water lying on large parts of the course.

It is hoped the races can be rearranged for a later date – watch this feed for news.

With Pointing getting underway on it’s annual Autumnal start this Saturday, the East Devon host their Point-To-Point meeting at Bishops Court, Ottery St Mary. This track offers a stunning parkland view, offering a fabulous way for the whole family to enjoy the seven races on offer, which commence at 12 noon. Although the entries are reduced, the quality should provide some competitive racing.

The opening Harris Timber Products members race could see trainer Les Jefford saddle the winner with Broadclyst,  with jockey Conor Houlihan to ride and follow up on the five-lengths second in a Handicap Chase at Warwick last season for Chris Down. Inch Rock could be his main rival here, now trained by Robin Gundry, looks to have the booking of jockey Pippa Glanville to ride and they would be looking to improve on their second place at this track previously.

Mount Vets sponsor the Open Maiden race for four and five year-olds. Captain Westie looks to be a likely favourite having run second in an Irish NH race and is in ownership for Bloodstock Owner/trainer Tom Malone with the booking of Will Biddick to ride. Hey Soul Sister looks a promising young horse for trainer Chris Barber running off a low weight, and So They Say is an entry for local trainer Ed Walker, another who could be one to follow for the future.

In the Micheal Pidsley & Son limited-sponsored Men’s Open race could be a dual finish between Where’s Wilma under jockey Matt Hampton for trainer Michael Watson having run well in second at this meeting last season, and The Mulcair for trainer Camilla Scott who could follow up on their win at Bratton Down last season.

The Paul Whitfield-sponsored Ladies Open entry Cousin Pascal won the Foxhunter Chase in April at Aintree for the Joseph O’Shea team and should be likely favourite here, Hawkhurst is another showing consistency last season and would be expected to run well for the Alan Hill team and notch an early season win for jockey Izzy Marshall.  Copain Des Classe is an entry for owner/ trainer Sam Loxton and this gelding could be one to follow in the pointing field for the future and give his lady jockey’s and connections some successful pointing days out in the future.

Trainwreck holds the highest rating in the Woolfeden-sponsored PPORA Club Conditions race for the Francesca Poste team having previously scored in Ireland under NH rules as a dual hurdle winner, however this could be a race for entry Copain Des Classe’s connections to challenge in this rather than the previous  race.

Envious Editor stands out in the Valley Constructions Restricted race for the Joe O’Shea team having had some decent Irish hurdle place form, Sergeant Brody ran a creditable second at Hexham in May and Schiap Hill is another who will be high in the betting arena having run well in runner-up places at this venue and Wadebridge previously. 

Finally up is the R Greenslade-sponsored Maiden race for six year olds and over, in which Truckers Pass for team Malone with jockey Will Biddick looking to set the standard and Dock Of The Bay for team Jefford  and the Otis partnership, being another who could run well on debut this season.

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.

PREVIEW: South Tetcott POINT-TO-POINT AT Upcott Cross ON BANK Monday, 31st May 2021

Pony racing heads up the action at The South Tetcott meeting at Upcott Cross this coming Monday at 12 noon, followed by the main six race card at 2pm which has attracted over 100 entries and will be a great way to round off the bank holiday weekend.

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 Thumbstoneblues who won at Cothelstone 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.

The Totnes & Bridgetown Race Co Ltd Mixed Open for Novice Riders looks to be another thriller, with Honest Deed who won at Wadebridge, and runner-up here at the last meeting for young jockey Charlotte Summersby. 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.

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.

In the Coodes Insurance-sponsored Restricted race Edabean(Jason Warner), Aclassageld (Martin Wanless) is another outside raider who could go close after his neck third at the Edgecote meeting, where as Don’t Ask Us (Keith Cumings) and Russian Invasion (Dean Summersby) both look good on recent form and could fly the flag for the area.

Aracas for the Luke price team finished runner up here at the previous meeting and holds an entries in both the maiden races that follow and should go close if returning here, along with Honest Opinion for team Summersby and Safe Harbour for the Chris Barber team, who have an excellent strike rate with maiden horses.
