GRANVILLE’S REMINISCENCES – FLETE PARK

I was looking forward to reporting on the Dartmoor point-to-point at the idyllic setting of Flete Park last weekend. For one reason, it was to be the 40th anniversary year of the first meeting at that venue.

The majority of Dartmoor point-to-points for the first half of the 20th century had taken place at Wrangaton near Ugborough, and Stippadon, near South Brent, which closed in 1962. The old Buckfastleigh racecourse hosted the fixture from 1963 until 1977. It was held at Kilworthy in 1979. The inaugural fixture at Flete Park in 1980 was a joint meeting of the Dartmoor and Modbury Harriers. In current circumstances we will have to be content with a few reminiscences from that first meeting.

A dry spell meant that the ground at Flete in 1980 was officially “hard”, hence a scarcity of runners, plus the fact that 11 other point-to-point meetings took place on that Saturday, just three days after the Axe Vale at Stafford Cross.I had alternatives of Bratton Down or Larkhill on that Saturday, and it was probably curiosity which took me down to the new course of Flete Park. It must be said that watering at Flete these days ensures decent going for every fixture there. The hill side overlooking the splendid parkland course of Flete Park is generally packed, and the late spring dates for the two fixtures now held there are ideal for picnics.

One or two changes have taken place to the actual track over the years, including a wider downhill run after the third last, but the course still goes round the tiny cricket field just past the winning post where I always visualise myself smacking a few sixes. David Trundley’s limited edition entitled “Catching the sun, Flete Park” superbly illustrates the ambience of Flete Park races, including the cricket pavilion in the background, doubling nowadays as the weighing room, declarations area and lady riders’ changing room.

I cannot remember what the weather was like on 26th April 1980, but I distinctly remember the weather the previous year when the Dartmoor & Modbury Harriers raced at Kilworthy. It was absolutely atrocious with the tents almost taking off in high winds and lashing rain which was sometimes par for the course on Dartmoor in April. Such luminaries as reporting colleagues Iain MacKenzie and Terry Selby gave me a lift that day, as we saw Hargan at his best lifting Pip Fisher towards her ladies’ title; Village Mark and Grant Cann win their second Maiden in three days (yes it was possible then); Moonstep and Mike Biddick, and Joe’s Farewell all successful.

That grand campaigner Devon Spirit was pulled up with an injured foot that day, but Diana Pook’s 15-year-old took the Open at the opening Flete Park meeting in 1980 under his regular rider Keith Pook. They don’t make them like Devon Spirit any more. Home bred, by Spiritus out of the winning mare Seventh Stmphony, he had won a total of 33 point-to-points and five hunter chases and was in the places 89 times when he retired as a 16-year-old.

The other star on show in 1980 was the Frost mare Armagnac Princess, who had already achieved her hat trick that year but showed her disdain for fast ground at Flete and was pulled up. She went on to win the prestigious Jeep Christie Mens Championship Hunter Chase (£4,425) at Chepstow the following year under a masterful ride from Jimmy Frost.

Paul Tylor’s mare Hidden Treasure was on the downgrade in 1980 after being near top class in her heyday, and did not have to be at her best to beat Goodness Me in a match.

Although Langton Way was only small he was very tough and won over a dozen points for the Britton family. Now a veteran, he ran on like a train down the hill and got up to beat Frevolity close home. Double Lodge was a well bred promising youngster from the Paul Tylor yard who sadly lost his life at Crimp on his next appearance

The Hunt race winner Hot Fancy (George Welch in the saddle) won her share of points for the Welch family ( won this race again two years later) and it is good to see George and his family so well involved today in Westcountry pointing and National Hunt racing.

I cannot leave these notes without reference to Lord Mildmay of Flete. He was without question the best amateur National Hunt jockey of his generation. His first winner in the saddle came in the Dartmoor Members’ race at Wrangaton when he was an undergraduate at Cambridge University. He came close to winning the Grand National in 1936 when his mount Davy Jones ran out when leading at the penultimate fence with a broken rein. After war service with the Guards Division he finished third in the 1948 Grand National on Cromwell.

Anthony Mildmay had inherited the title of Lord Mildmay and the ownership of the Flete estate when his father died in 1947. Dividing his time between his Flete estate and his trainer Peter Cazalet’s stables in Kent, he rode many winners after the war. including at the local tracks such as Buckfastleigh, Newton Abbot and Devon & Exeter. Sadly, Lord Mildmay drowned when taking his regular swim off the local coast in May 1950. He had ridden his last winner on his hunter chaser Prince Brownie at Wye a few days before he died.

His nephew Anthony Mildmay-White is still involved today with Dartmoor point-to- points, and rode the winner of the Dartmoor Hunt race in 1970 on Gold Dust VI before a successful career as an amateur under rules. His brother Richard was narrowly beaten on Ross that day, but went on to win on the same horse at the Mid Devon on the day that Devon Spirit won his Maiden.

As an obituary to Lord Mildmay, brief extracts from a leading article in The Times stated:- ….”All over the country, thousands of people who have never even betted on a steeplechase, let alone seen one run, are vaguely aware that by his death the country has suffered a particular loss…There never was a harder rider, a better loser or a more popular winner….”

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 MODBURY & STEVENSTONE

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP

MODBURY HARRIERS & STEVENSTONE

It was another busy pointing weekend with trips from near the South Devon coast to North Devon to cover the Devon & Cornwall area meetings with a Sunday dash to Holnicote in between.

Plenty of bookies (16) and plenty of punters at Flete Park for the Modbury, but again not too many runners despite near perfect ground. (too many point to points crammed into a short time)

Winners still take some finding and it took me until the last race on Saturday before I relieved our intrepid layers of any cash. My first act of stupidity that day was to take a very short price on Thewinnertakeitall (4-5/10-11) in the opener. I had reckoned that second favourite Where’s Wilma (5-2 to 7-4) had under performed lately, but this did not stop her from taking this Maiden with nothing else in sight in the home straight. My good thing trailed in third.

So I had to draw breath a bit and missed joining the nice little gamble on Goldbury (7’s to 5’s) in the Restricted. She only just scrambled home by a head under the talented Natalie Parker, as Bryan Carver threw everything at Lure Des Pres (10-1) before going down by a head

There’s No Panic (solid 4-6 fav) cantered home in the four miler to give Ella Ortterwell her second winner on this 14-year-old. Start Royal (13-8)is a year older than There’s No Panic with 29 wins to his credit, but the old boy, who had travelled from Oxfordshire, faded from the top of the hill and was pulled up.

The layers were well aware of The Last But One’s form, and with Will Biddick flying back from his winner in Ireland on the previous night, he was virtually unbackable (1-4 , 2-7) when favoured by the weights in the Conditions race. He had 25 lengths in hand passing the judge. I must remember that an odds on winner is better than a 50-1 loser.

The Hunt Novice Riders’ was an extraordinary contest. The eventual winner Syracuse’s Dream (7-4 to 6-4 fav) was out with the washing with less than half a mile to go (would have traded at 500 on the exchanges) , but somehow young Michael Treneer got him going for his first winning ride, and he flew past O’Maonlai (9-4 to 2-1}, ridden by his cousin Tamby Welch, inside the last 75 yards.

Tango Charlie (7-4) made a successful jumping debut to beat Cottage Rose (5-4/11-8 fav) in the four-runner young horses Maiden. The winner looks a nice sort and had run well in the Wilton bumper.

So we came to the getting out stakes – the Confined. Some of the faces jumped in at short odds on Wind Tor, but Predestined was cut from 7-1 to half that price and The Dapper Fox (2-1) attracted his usual support. Wind Tor went from 4-5 to 5-4 so on this occasion patience was a virtue. The 5-4 got my losses back so it was fish and chips on the long journey home.

I always enjoy the Stevenstone meeting on the early bank holiday in May – whatever that bank holiday is called. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the viewing is good.

It was a pleasant day at Vauterhill, but the afternoon began with a walk over – the third hunt race walk over I have seen in the past five weeks. The 12 bookies offered very fair prices for the real races which saw a promising mare by Mahler open the action in the Restricted. She was called Mahler Style and after I had noted early 8-1 her odds dropped like a stone to 7-4. I think I know who the most successful punter was, but it wasn’t me. Stefan Kirwan gave the winner a good ride to score quite impressively, as Bob Along Mahler (12’s to 10’s) fought on well. Cornflower Blue (7-2 to 3’s) was a bit disappointing in third.

The useful mare River Myth had walked over and turned out again for the Mixed Open where she faced only one opponent Peterbrown (2-1). River Myth (1-5) was always in command and clocked up her fifth win of the season.
My only bet of the day was in the Intermediate. Skinflint looked the goods at evens and was eventually forced into 8-11. Bryan Carver was content to stalk Ryves Rocky (5-4 to 2’s) until pouncing at the last. The winner can progress again.

It was good to see Upton Funk (Mervyn Woodward) win the Mares race. Owner/trainer David Rogers still rides her out at age 83 and has been a fixture in the area for ages. The mare had run well on her seasonal debut at Kilworthy and got the better of Willaldo (5-4 fav).

Jockey Merv Woodward is another area stalwart and completed a double when Ichifoot (11-10 was the best price I saw) stormed home by 30 lengths in the concluding Open maiden). This gelding had an unusual point-to-point background as he started life on the flat in California. He relished the quick ground.

Report: Modbury Harriers and Totnes & Bridgetown Race Co. Ltd Point-To-Point, Saturday 4th May 2019

Written by Donna Harris

Will Biddick flew back from his Hunter Chase victory celebrations at Punchestown, in time to score a double at the Modbury Harriers and Totnes & Bridgetown Race Co Ltd meeting held at Flete Park on Saturday. Having reached his milestone of clocking up the most ever wins by a jockey in Point-to-Points, Will is now eyeing up the National Championship title again. The first part of his double came when steering home the Tom Malone owned and trained The Last But One in the Marchand Petit-sponsored Conditions race. Having kicked on from three fences from home, the combination had no challengers in the four runner race and went on to win by 25 lengths. “The race distance suited him and with no penalties.” quoted the well known bloodstock agent, who added “We may possibly look at Ladies races at Hereford or Stratford next.”

The second part of the Biddick double came when he got the leg-up on the four-year old promising gelding Tango Charlie, for Robert Chanin in the Open Maiden race for 4,5&6yr olds. Tom Chanin unable to make the weight and Will was offered the ride by joint owner Hugh Ellis who was delighted with the win. “My wife Juliet is currently in hospital and I hope this gives her a great boost.” Tango Charlie is owned by the Stone Valley Racing Club and they look to have an exciting youngster here having taken this race by an impressive twelve lengths.

Local jockey Michael Treneer clocked up a win on his mothers owned and trained Syracuse’s Dream in the Members race for Novice riders, which had been sponsored by Brewin Dolphin. It was a battle between two cousins at the finish with Tamby Welch leading for much of the race on O’Maonlai, but his cousin Micheal Treneer managed to keep Syracuse’s Dream up to his work to score by two lengths in a thrilling finish. “ He has matured a lot, and we hope he can now progress to Intermediate level.” commented his delighted owner/trainer Deborah Treneer.

The Not So Innocent partnership’s Where’s Wilma took the opening Tony Glynn Scaffolding-sponsored Open Maiden race under jockey Matt Hampton for trainer Michael Watson. Where’s Wilma had shown promise early on in the season and had no problem tackling the course here with a distant win. The Loxbeare (Tiverton) based trainer was pleased with the mare’s improvement quoting “She had pulled a hamstring and we had to give her time to recover.”

Wurzell Weddings sponsored the Restricted race in which the young mare Goldbury came back to form when winning under jockey Natalie Parker, for her mother Tracey. The six-year old mare was another looking progressive at the start of the season until pulling up in a race at Milbourne St Andrew in March. “We were concerned about her so had our vets scope her and take some bloods, which revealed an infection. We are happy she is back to herself.” explained Tracey Parker.

In the Totnes & Bridgetown Race Co-sponsored 4m Ladies Open race There’s No Panic repeated his win here two weeks ago for young jockey Ella Orttewell, putting up another stunning front running performance and pleasing his backers. Owner/trainer Mike Biddick teased the young jockey about following instructions, but Ella new she had to take on the prolific winning gelding Start Royal from the Alan Hill team. “ We just kicked on after the ditch and I knew he was travelling well, I thought they were closer as I hadn’t looked back.” she explained. Ella will soon be leaving college and is looking forward to working full time at Will Biddick’s pre-training yard in Alhampton. Ella was also awarded the trophy for the Leading Novice rider at the two Flete Park meetings, which was a great achievement after only her fourth ever ride in Point-to-Points.

Finally the Dial-A-Shed confined race went the way of the Otter Clubs Wind Tor for Devon based trainer Ed Walker, under jockey Josh Newman. Seven had set off at the start, with jockey Josh Newman keeping the mare handy in mid division, until finding plenty three out and exerting over the last for a twelve length victory. Pleasing the crowd having been sent off the 5/4 favourite. Speaking on behalf of the Otter Club Ken Edwards quoted “ We can’t believe how lucky we have been with her, we were entered at Exeter but thought the going may not be to her liking, we could run again this season if some rain arrives.”

It is the last time the Modbury Harriers will run their meeting at Flete Park, as they are joining the Dart Vale & South Pool Harriers next season. The course will just be the Dartmoor from then on.

Jack Snipe also holds an entry at Holnicote on Sunday, which could leave the door open for two veterans to note, Start Royal (Alan Hill) an impressive winner of 27 Points to date plus two Hunter Chase races. Another  veteran to note is the Ladies winner here at the last meeting There’s No Panic for trainer Mike Biddick. Ella Orttewell took the Ladies Open race here at the Dartmoor meeting on There’s No Panic with a bold front running tactic, and could well repeat that form again here and give Ella her second win. It’s A Steal is another entry who could run well for local family the Glanville’s, with mother Lee training for daughter Pippa to ride and hopefully improve on their Members race win at this track two weeks ago. Chosen Lucky (Dean Summersby) could also turn up to join in the party and would be a worthy challenger having clocked up four wins this season.

The Marchand Petit-sponsored Conditions race is for horses having won a race under rules, and this could see the Tom Malone owned and trained The Last But One turn up after his neck win at Stafford Cross last weekend. This race is only two miles and four furlongs which should suit the gelding, along with equal weights. Purple’N Gold is also entered for the Les Jefford team and should put up another game effort having won Opens at both Cotley and Trebudannon this season under jockey Millie Wonnacott.

 Written by: Donna Harris

The Modbury Harriers together with the Totnes & Bridgetown Racing Company host their meeting on Saturday 4th May, at the popular party course known as Flete Park, near Ermington. Land owner Anthony Mildmay-White has kindly sponsored the Pony racing which heads up the action at 1pm with the main seven race card off at 2pm. 67 entries have been received.

The Totnes & Bridgetown Racing Co-sponsored 4m Ladies Open looks to be the feature of the day being a qualifier for the Skinners Ladies Open Final at Stratford-on-Avon at the end of May.

Glynn Scaffolding sponsor the Open maiden race which heads up the main action. Minella Beag (Ed Walker) has the benefit of a mares weight allowance and also possible booking of Will Biddick to ride, who having broken the all time Pointing record, will now be looking to win the National gentlemen title. Thewinnertakeitall (Dean Summersby) has shown promise with place form and was an unlucky faller when close up at Cherrybrook.

Worswell Weddings sponsor the Restricted race in which recent Little Windsor winner Could Be Better (Stuart Sampson) looks progressive, along with Dancing Dave (Ed Walker) dead heated at the last meeting here. Lure de Pres (Mike Vanstone) stayed on well to win by a neck at Badbury, whilst Goldbury (Tracey Parker) looked impressive when winning at Wadebridge and could bounce back from a poor run at Milborne St Andrew.

The Marchand Petit-sponsored Conditions race is for horses having won a race under rules, and this could see the Tom Malone owned and trained The Last But One turn up after his neck win at Stafford Cross last weekend.

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).

REPORT DARTMOOR AT FLETE PARK 20 APRIL 2019

Written by: GRANVILLE TAYLOR & DONNA HARRIS

“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” William Shakespeare 1564-1616

I am not sure about that Mr Shakespeare. Trying to scale the steep hill side seven times at Flete on a hot afternoon to get the best view of the action certainly tested my old legs !

It was point-to-point racing at its best though in the glorious setting of Flete Park on Saturday (20 April) . A total of 41 runners contested the seven races on going described as perfect. The car parks were packed to capacity with picnickers revelling on the hill side overlooking the course in the warm sunshine Will Biddick took centre stage. Not only did the Truro born rider complete a double (which included a dead-heater), he proved himself a successful tutor as teenager Ella Orttewell, who works in his yard, followed his instructions, when riding There’s No Panic to a comfortable victory in the featured four miles Mixed Open for the Lord Mildmay Challenge Cup.

The winner, formerly a useful chaser with Paul Nicholls, runs in the colours of Will’s father Mike Biddick, and made virtually all the running under his 19-year-old rider. “He was pulling my arms out,” exclaimed the rider, who was partnering her first winner on only her third race ride. A business studies pupil at Strode College, Street, the jockey has gained valuable race riding experience working under the tutorship of the six-times champion jockey at his Ditcheat. base

Sylvies Dance toyed with her rivals to score by a distance in the young horses Open Maiden to initiate Will Biddick’s double in the saddle. He also trains this promising mare for owners Rose and Len Vickery, and reported, “It took her some time to get over her first run (at Ottery) but she was impressive here.” The mare’s next outing is likely to be at Tattersalls Cheltenham sales on Friday April 26th.

By contrast it was harder work for Biddick on Stuart Jarrett’s six-year-old Dancing Dave, trained by Ed Walker, who got up on the line to force a dead heat in the three miles Open Maiden.. Jake Bament looked to have settled the issue as Deise Gold, in the colours of Caroline Furse, jumped clear at the last, but Dancing Dave answered Biddick’s urgings in game style to share the spoils in a terrific finish.

Jake Bament might have been enjoying a double if the odds-on favourite Neetside had not been carried out by a loose horse in the Restricted. Predestined went on to take the race under Darren Andrews, resisting the late challenge of Cornflower Blue. Gordon Chambers trains the winner at Buckfastleigh for owner Jenny Luscombe, who said of her 8-1 winner, “His last two runs before this were disappointing as he reacted to his flu jabs.”
Beat The Tide, owned by Georgina Robarts and trained by Stuart Sampson, ran on gamely to win the Confined, defying a 5lbs penalty in good style under Ben Robarts. “He jumped well today and can come back here in two weeks time,” reported the jockey.

In another close finish Uncle Jimmy , owned and trained by Beth Childs and ridden by her partner Nick Lawton, recovered from a sluggitsh jump at the last to hold the late flourish of Danvinnie. Formerly a four times winning hurdler for Phiip Hobbs and looked after in that yard by Beth, the successful rider smiled, “She wouldn’t leave that yard without Uncle Jimmy. He is too spoilt really.”

The well supported Hunt race went to former chaser It’s A Steal who had too much finishing pace for game veteran Mic’s Delight. The winner is owned by Lee and Les Glanville and was the eighth career success for Pippa Glanville, who works for Ali and Sam Stronge. “We spotted him on facebook out of Katie Stephens yard and I ride him every day,” said Pippa’s proud trainer mum Lee. Runner up Mic’s Delight has now earned honourable retirement at the age of 15.
