GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – DUNSMORE CLUB, SILVERTON 14 NOVEMBER 2021

It was good to see the line of bookmakers  back in full swing for the opening Devon & Cornwall meeting of the season at Dunsmore, with plenty to smile about as the first four favourites went down the pan.

It was such a mild, sunny day that it was almost a pleasure to add to the bookies profits. I gave a generous contribution as Captain Westie (4-5 fav) just failed to last home in the opening Maiden. Will Biddick sent him three lengths clear on the bottom bend, but he fluffed the last and Park This One (4’s to 9-2) swept past him under Josh Newman close home. Captain Westie’s Thurles bumper form with subsequent winners all around him looked solid and I thought  justified a good bet, but the winner is a nice staying type, won on merit, and can only improve further.

So it became a more cautious betting day. Thumb Stone Blues had won his last four points last season but was saddled with a 10 lbs penalty in the Conditions race. He drifted from 4-6 to 11-10 in the face of good money for both In Arrears (6’s to 7-2) and Inch Rock (6’s to 4’s). The latter pair fought out the finish with the mare In Arrears just prevailing in the hands of Darren Edwards. She enjoys soft ground and can win again. Inch Rock ran a brave race in defeat, but third placed The Roestone (9-4 to 2’s), a previous course winner, never really threatened.

The former Gigginstown horse Moratorium (5’s to 2’s) was bought by current connections only recently. The eight-year-old winning hurdler was picked up for £10,000 at Goffs UK Doncaster sales last month having lost his form a bit in Ireland. He gave a first winning ride to Nathan Green in the Conditions race reserved for Veteran and Novice Riders. The Heythrop gelding won very easily and trainer Myles Osborne has his eye on hunter chases. Runner up Guerrilla Tactics (4-1) is proving a good schoolmaster for Finn Muirhead and ran up to his form to finish second. Broadclyst  (2’s to 15-8 fav) has had a spell under rules and ran better than his nine lengths third suggests. Bridge of Spies was friendless from evens out to 3’s and will be better for the race. He was doing his best work at the finish.

In the three runner Mixed Open (with a new sponsor INEOS Grenadier), the early prices chalked up for Southfield Theatre (evens) and Chameron (1-2) were off putting, but when the market settled Southfield Theatre could be backed at 6-4 and 7-4. Chameron eased to evens and these two useful pointers had the race between them as Static Jack (6’s to 3’s) dropped away. It was the game veteran Southfield Theatre who took the prize, making all and jumping well for Lily Bradstock to fend off Chameron’s efforts. The final of this new series is at Cheltenham in May.

All six entries went to post for the Restricted which saw a successful late gamble on the South Wales traveller Accordini at all prices down from 5-2 to evens. Well done to the Welsh boys who collected bundles after a very confident ride from the reigning champion James King. Eole D’un Regard (6-1) has a funny head carriage but kept on gamely under Barnaby Treneer to finish second with Will Biddick steering Thomas Crown (7-1) into third. I backed Clever Des Assence (5-1) who looked really fit and chased the leaders but found little where it mattered.

On all known form Truckers Pass (4-6 to 4-9) was a certainty in the getting out stakes and duly delivered with the minimum of fuss. Will Biddick’s hardest task was to pull him up afterwards.  Evron (9-2) got to within four lengths of the winner and is a sure Maiden winner. Da Vinci Rock (4-1) is giving his novice rider useful experience and can pick up a race before long.

I am told that the live streaming from Dunsmore proved a great success. Dave Phillips was taking phone bets from the armchair punters.

REPORT – DUNSMORE CLUB, SILVERTON POINT-TO-POINT   14TH NOVEMBER 2021

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

“How like a winter hath thine absence been from me, the pleasure of the fleeting year”

William Shakespeare

Yes Mr Shakespeare, it has been a difficult year or two. You remember the plague in your time, well we have our own version of the plague nowadays, but we are optimistic that the new point-to-point season will put our sport back on track.

It started off well on Sunday, as despite small fields the Dunsmore Club provided competitive racing in bright sunshine and blue skies before a good sized crowd. The prolific winning gelding Southfield Theatre, owned by Angela Yeoman, made all under Lily Bradstock to upset the favourite Chamelon in the INEOS Grenadier sponsored Mixed Open. This was the first of 16 Open races throughout the country sponsored by this company, culminating in a final at Cheltenham in May.

In form jockey Lily Bradstock had ridden Southfield Theatre’s young half sister to win at Badbury Rings last week, and said of the prolific winning 13-year-old Southfield Theatre, “He loves it and loves his jumping. We will keep going as long as he enjoys it. Mum (the trainer) rides him every day.” Mum is of course Sara Bradstock who rode winners herself as Sara Lawrence, daughter of the late Lord Oaksey.

The reigning Devon & Cornwall champion jockey Darren Edwards got off the mark for the new season as the family mare In Arrears, one of just two pointers owned and trained at Exford by his father Gordon, just overcame front running Inch Rock (Pippa Glanville) to win the Conditions race. Trainer Gordon, a long standing farrier, “rides it, shoes it and schools it” according to his wife Angela. Darren has less long distance travelling this season (he formerly commuted each week from Leicestershire) as he is now based as a partner with Fisher German at Exeter.

Last season’s National champion rider James King was well beaten behind In Arrears when his mount Thumb Stone Blues, a winner of his last four races, faded in the home straight under a hefty 10lbs penalty. The leading rider however went home having ridden a winner thanks to Welsh challenger Accordini, given a perfect waiting ride in the Restricted. The winner is trained at Pyle by Gareth Moore for Caerphilly based owner Justin Hoskins.

Similar waiting tactics paid off for Will Biddick in the Open Maiden, confidently bringing his mount Truckers Pass from off the pace to justify odds-on favouritism when toying with his five rivals. “He is a classy horse and I was able to switch him off,” reported the seven times National Champion jockey. The winner runs in the colours of his trainer, Taunton bloodstock agent Tom Malone, who dashed off to a big spending jaunt the following day at Deauville sales.

Somerset jockey Josh Newman chased home Biddick’s Maiden winner on Evron, but the boot was on the other foot in the Goffs UK Maiden for four and five-year-olds as Newman drove home Park This One to outpoint Biddick’s mount Captain Westie with a strong late run. A nicely bred four-year-old, Park This One is trained by Neil McLean near Crewkerne for owner Ivan Thompson who runs a popular local outlet called The Sausage Shed. The winner was purchased at Goffs UK Summer sales at Doncaster last July and is destined to return to the sales ring.

It was a red letter day for 23 year old jockey Nathan Green who scored his first winner from only his second ride when Moratorium quickened clear of Guerrila Tactics and Broadclyst in the home straight to win the Veteran & Novice Riders event. The Lancashire born rider works at Ben Pauling’s Cotswold yard, alongside Moratorium’s trainer Myles Osborne. Formerly a winner in Ireland for Gigginstown, Moratorium now runs in the colours of the trainer’s stepmother and was yet another sourced from Goffs UK.

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. Kahaleesi looks an interesting entry for the Alan Hill team, with her mares weight allowance and the booking of Izzy Marshall to ride.

PPA: INTERIM STATEMENT REGARDING IMMEDIATE SITUATION FOR POINT-TO-POINT

11:30 Tuesday

The last two weeks have demonstrated that we can run point-to-point safely. 

However, we must comply with government regulations and requirements. At the moment that suggests point-to-point will not be possible in this period of lockdown. However, we will make a definitive statement following the parliamentary debate on Wednesday to avoid any risk of further confusion.

Early season and 2020-21 fixture list confirmed


Following a meeting on 16 July, the PPA Board has agreed that the proposed early season programme of point-to-points should go ahead.  

The decision was not taken lightly, particularly as there are several factors which cannot as yet be fully quantified.  However, on the balance of probability, given present progress at both national and sporting levels, and more specifically racing under Rules, it is believed that point to pointing will be able to start in October, hopefully on Saturday 24 at Bishops Court in East Devon.

The full provisional fixture list for 2020-21 (subject to BHA approval) can be downloaded here, but the following fixtures are planned for the early season:

24 Oct – East Devon at Bishops Court
25 Oct – Ledbury at Maisemore Park
1 Nov – Kimblewick at Kimble
8 Nov – The Wheatland at Chaddesley Corbett
15 Nov – South East Hunts Club at Charing
15 Nov – Dunsmore Racing Club at Dunsmore


The favourable response to the owner/trainer survey that was circulated earlier this month combined with the general progress made on Covid-19, and the possible losses to pointing if we did not make an early start, helped to make the PPA Board’s decision.

Of course, there may localised Covid-19 spikes between now and October, and indeed at any stage.  To that end protocols have been written for the fixtures at varying levels at which they can be run, including racing behind closed doors. The sport emphatically does not wish to race without spectators, and we certainly hope we do not have to. However, it is important to plan for all eventualities and to provide opportunities for the sport’s participants, whilst ensuring it is financially viable for the fixture.

BRITISH POINT-TO-POINTING SHUT DOWN FOR 2019/20 SEASON

Posted: Tuesday, 17th March 2020 Author: The PPA

This is a formal announcement to confirm that the British point-to-point season is closed for this season.

This was a very difficult decision to make recognising that many people’s livelihoods are involved. However, the Prime Minister’s words last night made clear that everyone should minimise social contact and non-essential travel. Furthermore, our sport creates some medical burden, both on the course and potentially at the hospitals, where it would be unwelcome under the current circumstances.

The PPA would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has worked so hard to keep this season going so successfully until now, often under very trying circumstances. We will now be working on preparations to ensure that we start next autumn in the same successful manner as last, and will soon be in touch with many of you for your thoughts and ideas.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP DUNSMORE CLUB, SILVERTON 17th NOVEMBER 2017

BOOKIES 3 PUNTERS 3 – Score draw

Firstly, the organisers deserve much credit for getting this meeting on at this new course, having battled to defeat the recent very wet weather. The jockeys I spoke with praised the condition of the course and the fences. The track is quite sharp with almost three circuits.

A lot of familiar old faces graced both sides of the betting ring at the new venue. A lot of smiling faces in fact from the ten men with the satchels after the first two races. 

Will Biddick’s first ride of the season, four year old Queens Legacy in the young horse Maiden was always a shade of odds-on with 4-5 ruling at the off. She slipped up when holding every chance on the final bend, but this granddaughter of Panda Shandy is sure to winraces. The winner Macca’s Stowaway looked fit, but was friendless in the ring and drifted from 7-2 to 6-1. Her form under rules looked suspect, but she stormed home under 41-year-old Merv Woodward, who was deputising in the saddle for temporarily sidelined owner/trainer Jimmy Cole. The runner up Janeslittlevoice (8’s to 5’s) kept on but was no match for the winner.

Nine of the ten entries for the second race (Conditions) turned up. Hello George was originally chalked up at 4-1 in a place, but that was soon snapped up, and the useful ex-Hobbs gelding, now in Will Biddick’s yard and ridden by the talented Frenchman Nathan Vergne, started 7-4 favourite. I have rarely seen two horses going hammer and tongs well clear out in front like Hello George and Marten (12’s into 10’s) for the best part of the last mile and a half. They raced stride for stride with neither giving an inch until Evan David and Marten got the verdict on the nod right on the post. Mary Vestey trains the winner, who seemed to have lost his way under rules , for her father (Lord Vestey) at Stowell Park 

Okay, two-nil to the bookies, but the punters soon got one back thanks to The Roestone (solid evens fav) who only had a ten minutes trip to the track from just up the road at Thorverton. The Vinnie Roe gelding relished the ground under Tom Chanin and was always holding Mr Jaggers (9-2) after third home Second Chapter (5-4 from 2’s) had ruined his chance with a blunder three out.

I thought that Bishops Road was the goods in the Mixed Open, but he drifted from 4-6 to evens fav, and couldn’t get to grips with Don Bersy (3’s into 7-4) despite Bradley Gibbs putting up 5 lbs overweight on the winner. After his usual hesitancy at the start,  DonBersy was soon in front and was always holding Bishops Road. The winners trainer Ryan Potter runs a shrewd yard at Ross-on-Wye and is worth keeping an eye on this season

Punters got it right in the Intermediate with Waterloo Warrior (4-6. Evens, 4-5 fav), given a typical Biddick ride to overcome Robin Why Not (9-4 to 2’s). The Warrior took command on the bottom bend. Formerly a Colin Tizzard inmate, Waterloo Warrior had suffered from seconditis under rules and was far from straightforward. He could make into a fair pointer. 

The getting out stakes ( Open Maiden) saw the obligatory Welsh trained winner as Iusetaluvheronce (memories of the Saw Doctorssong) made all under a positive ride from Byron Moorcroft to land the odds (10-11 fav from 6-4). This seven-year-old had only modest form under rules but looks capable of scoring again.  The inexperienced JoeTidball gave the runner up Ticklebellylane (14’s to 12’s) a grand ride for a novice.

REPORT ON THE DUNSMORE CLUB, SILVERTON SUNDAY 17TH NOVEMBER

The wheel is come full circle. I am here ~ Lear. William Shakespeare

What you mean Mr Shakespeare is that it has only been 22 weeks since we last got together in Devon and here we are again.

Yes, a new season, a new course, and a newly formed Club meeting gave a fresh feeling to the launch of the 2019/20 British point-to-point season m at Dunsmore near Silverton, Devon.

Clerk of the course Norman Chanin and his team had worked hard to combat the recent bad weather to get the course ready.  They were rewarded with a good sized crowd and commendations about the track and the fences from jockeys. Even the sun made an appearance

The Dunsmore Club meeting hosted runners from far and wide, but it was a Tavistock based mare who struck the first blow for Devon in the opening Tiverton hotel sponsored Maiden race for four to six-year olds. This was Macca’sStowaway, formerly in training with Christian Williams, and recommended to Jimmy Cole by Nick Scholfield.

Currently sidelined through injury, 37-year-old Jimmy Cole has been a popular pointing figure for some time in the Devon & Cornwall area as an owner / trainer/ rider. He entrusted the steering on this occasion to fellow veteran jockey MervWoodward. “I think that is my 50th winner including nine hunter chases. I went wide to avoid the softest ground,” reported the 41-year-old rider whose day job is lorry driving.

Will Biddick’s quest to retain his National title ended in the soft Dunsmore turf in the first race as Queen’s Legacy slipped up on the home bend when holding every chance. The seven-times champion jockey soon made amends however with a comfortable success on Waterloo Warrior in the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate. This seven-year-old, qualified with the Cotswold Vale Farmers, shook off front running Robin Why Not (“kept hanging right”, said jockey Darren Andrews) in the home straight to score by six lengths. Jake Slatter, who trains at Toddington near Cheltenham, saddled the ex-Colin Tizzard gelding for his mother. “Will rode him exactly as planned,” said the trainer, as the jockey remarked, “He jumped well today and is a nice sort. The further he went the better he was”.

Gloucestershire also supplied the winner of the Heltorsponsored Conditions race which saw nine of the ten entries face the starter. Lord Vestey’s seven-year-old Marten, sent off at 10-1, prevailed by a short head after a demanding neck and neck battle throughout the final circuit with runner up Hello George (Nathan Vergne). Evan David had the mount on the winner, trained by the owner’s daughter Mary at Stowell Park. “I have four in training. This horse hadn’t won for a few years and I am still in shock,” said Mary Vestey. 27-year-old Evan David reported that, “It was very close and I got the nod on the line. He is an out and out stayer and would do more on a galloping track,” The successful jockey works in Ben Pauling’s National Hunt yard.

The Valley Construction Mixed Open went to the consistent Don Bersy who stayed on well under Bradley Gibbs to hold the favourite Bishops Road. “He is a busy horse and gets himself fit but can be very quirky at the start.” said trainer Ryan Potter who operates from the yard occupied at one time by leading trainer John Edwards at Ross-on-Wye.

The Roestone needed only a ten minutes journey from Robert Chanin’s Thorverton yard to strike for the locals in the Porlock Weir Hotel & Luttrell Arms Restricted. The Vinnie Roe five-year-old proved a deserving winner for owners Andrew and Sue Knox, staying on gamely to hold Mr Jaggersafter third placed Second Chapter had ruined his chance with a mistake three out. “Andrew has done a lot of work on the course,” said the trainer, who reflected that his sons Ian and Tom had sourced the winner in Ireland as an unbroken three-year-old. Tom Chanin had the mount on The Roestone who, “has come in stronger and matured now.” according to the jockey.

The Gingerland Livery sponsored Open Maiden winner Iusetaluvheronce has an intriguing name but is probably no rock star. The seven-year-old did it the hard way out in front all the way to see off his five opponents under the urgings of the talented Byron Moorcroft. “If he wins a couple of point-to-points he may go back to Tim Vaughan,” reported owner/trainer Luke Price who houses 20 pointers at his Ynysybwl yard near Pontypridd.
