GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – FOUR BURROW POINT-TO-POINT AT TREBUDANNON, EASTER MONDAY 6th APRIL 2015

Website_FB1_Money_Talks_Banner

It was a similar story at Trebudannon on Easter Monday with car parks packed and race cards quickly sold out. The slopes on the hill could have doubled for Newquay beach, with holidaymakers mingling with point-to-point enthusiasts and hardly an inch of space for one more blanket to sit the family (and the dog) on.

Berties’s Way was made favourite for the first maiden (3’s to 2’s) on the strength of promising early season form but could only finish fifth. Five-year-old Cove Lodge (6’s to 9-2) looked the part for his debut in the same race. He showed some promise and will be better for the experience. The race went to 20-1 outsider Torgamah Lad who had shown nothing for Venetia Williams or Nigel Hawke under rules, but had his ten rivals in trouble a long way out. Miss Weld (5-2 to 3’s) closed steadily, but she really needs a longer trip and would be of interest at somewhere like Flete Park.

Winter Garden was a worthy winner of the other division of the two and a half miles Maiden. On a red letter day (three winners) for trainer Reuben Chapman, the ex-Irish six-year-old justified 9-4 favouritism in the hands of Sean Houlihan.

Mic’s Delight (evens-4-5) tended to jump right and was taken quite wide by his novice rider in home straight the Confined. Nevertheless he is proving a good ride for her and was coming back at the winner Academy General (6-1) on the run-in. Jo Buck had pushed Academy General clear approaching the last before holding on to win by a neck. “He was struck into last time (Black Forest Lodge) and ripped a shoe off,” reported trainer Pat Shaw.

Kirkleigh’s sound jumping and determination landed him the Cornish National (4-5 touched evens) in a blanket finish with Ace High (4’s to 5-2) and Batu Ferringhi (7-2 to 9-2).

REPORT ON THE FOUR BURROW POINT-TO-POINT AT TREBUDANNON, EASTER MONDAY 6th APRIL 2015

Website_FB1_Report_Banner
 WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

THE car parks were overflowing and the packed holiday crowd enjoyed wall to wall sunshine and competitive racing at Trebudannon.

It was a great day for the Chapman family, based just a couple of miles from the course. Reuben Chapman won with three of his five runners, two of which were partnered by his son Ryan.

Reliable Richie set the ball rolling in the Hunt race, steered by Ryan to an easy success. The trainer recalled that he had, “ Won this trophy just once before when Indian Raider beat Let’s Fly quite a long time ago”

It wasn’t long before his useful looking six-year-old Winter Garden followed in the hoof prints of Reliable Richie in a division of the two and a half miles Open Maiden. Dungarvan born Sean Houlihan took the mount this time to score his second career success. “We got Winter Garden from Colman Hennessy in Ireland. He is a lovely prospect and he has done lots of jumping at home,” said the trainer.

“I have never had a double before,” enthused Reuben after this success, but his double soon became a treble thanks to the concluding Maiden winner Myladtommy. “I have whipped in to the North Cornwall with this horse all season,” reported Ryan, who was on board his genuine hunter to score his first ever riding double. The only negative was a fine by the stewards’ concerning the use of the whip by the 30-year old rider, whose day job is a farrier.

Jo Buck followed up her Cherrybrook win on Saturday to make it three for the Easter weekend courtesy of a double on Academy General and Ziggerson Hill.

Academy General just held the rallying Mic’s Delight to score by a neck in the colours of Duncan Odgers and Pat Shaw in the Confined, before the Jackie Du Plessis owned, bred and trained mare Ziggerson Hill just got the better of the pace setting Ned White in the Ladies’

The long distance “Cornish National” produced a three way finish with the sound jumping Kirkleigh (Tom Chanin) just holding off Ace High and Batu Ferringhi. “He was not himself on his last run at Chepstow and it has taken until today to get him back,” said Robert Chanin, who trains the gelding for owner Sue Trump.

Tom Chanin went close to adding to Kirkleigh’s win when his mount Wee Saxon just gave best to I’m All Set in the Restricted. Both the winner and the runner up are promising six-year-olds. Claire Hitch trains I’m All Set for her co-owners Keith Parkin and Philip Rawle, with jockey Jamie Thomas describing the winner as, “game, a nice sort who jumps for fun.”

Four successful favourites gave the enthusiastic crowd something to cheer about, but the first division of the two and a half miles Maiden saw 20-1 outsider Torgamah Lad scorching round in a long lead to give George Hiscock his fifth career winner. The seven-year-old is owned and trained by Steve McCracken on Exmoor who said, “He ran unplaced a few times for Venetia Williams and I got him from Nigel Hawke.”

REPORT: FOUR BURROW POINT-TO-POINT AT TREBUDANNON, EASTER MONDAY 21ST APRIL

IT was a good day for the lady jockeys at the Four Burrow, where Bryony Frost and Vicky Wade each scored doubles. In addition, Leanda Tickle rode Byerley Bear to win the Ladies Open, which left only a couple of races for the boys.

Wee Fly initiated Bryony’s double when quickening clear on the run-in to win the Hunt race. “This is my 50th win as an owner,” said Wee Fly’s trainer Ross Oliver whose yard is within sight of the Trebudannon course. Ross has also dominated this Four Burrow Hunt race over the past ten years.

Bryony completed her double on the improving Red Penny in the Confined. The Nikki Frost trained mare was following up her Buckfastleigh win after a spirited battle with Print the Money and King Cyrus. Bryony is now on the eight winner mark for the season and well on course to retain her Devon & Cornwall Lady jockeys title.

What About Will provided Vicky Wade with the first leg of her double in the two and a half miles Maiden, mastering Queen’s Law at the final jump. A sturdy five-year-old, What About Will was saddled by Neil Harris for Vicky’s father Keith. “We got him at Goffs in Ireland as a three-year-old, sold him, then bought him back. He is a late foal and will mature further,” said the trainer.

Vicky Wade completed her double in the three miles Maiden on Just Seven. This big, strong gelding stayed on well in the home straight to score for owner/trainer Roy Smith who bought the chestnut as a four-year-old. He is a three parts brother to King of Alcatraz who has won five races in the same colours.

The Ladies’ Open looked a formality for 1-3 favourite Byerley Bear. This useful gelding, bidding to score for the sixth time this season, nevertheless had to put his best foot forward under Leanda Tickle to see off a determined challenge by Bryony Frost on Classic Swain. “That was a relief. He was quite tired that day at Great Trethew (where he finished third).” said trainer Robert Chanin

Favourite backers came unstuck however when the odds-on chance Shalimar Fromentro was overhauled by Reliable Richie on the run-in for the grandly titled Cornish National. The four-runner field was reduced to three when the leader Ace High fell at the 10th fence.. Shalimar Fromentro was left in front for the remainder of the three and a half miles journey, but got tired and idled badly after crossing the last fence to be collared by the well named Reliable Richie in the last 75 yards. The eight-year-old winner proved a popular local success for owner/ trainer Reuben Chapman and was giving jockey Michael Heard his seventh winner of the season. “We bought him cheaply out of the ring at Ascot. He likes his work and we have his five-year-old half brother at home,” explained Reuben’s son Ryan.

A field of 14 faced the starter for the Restricted and all but two completed the course. The winner Devon General seemed to travel like a dream on the final circuit and prevailed in a three way finish over Mausefalle and Gontdevon. “I couldn’t believe how well he was travelling,” enthused winning jockey Jake Bament, who had celebrated his 18th birthday on Good Friday and was enjoying his second point-to-point success having graduated through pony racing. “This horse has been difficult to train. He is really a big baby but has a turn of foot,” reported Kayley Woollacott, who handles the six-year-old for joint owners Dick Westacott, Ruth and John Burrow.

MONEY TALKS

Red Penny was given a patient ride by Bryony Frost to land the Confined. This seven-year-old mare was backed from 5-2 to 2’s and took advantage of her weight concession from runner up Print The Money (3-1). The winner is likely to be seen out from the Frost yard under rules this summer.

What About Will was a heavily backed favourite (7-4 into evens), in the two and a half miles maiden. He is a sturdy five-year-old who is just coming to hand and overhauled long time leader Queen’s Law (5-1) in the closing stages. What About Will should be even better over a longer distance and can win a Restricted before the end of the season.

Punters came unstuck in the three miles maiden when Boymann (7-2 into 5-2 favourite) could not get in a blow in the 12-runner field. His promising Kilworthy run was on softer ground and he deserves another chance. This race went to Just Seven who drifted out to 9-1 and gained reward for his consistency.

Theatre Goer was a disappointing favourite in the 14-runner Restricted after her eye catching Great Trethew win. She looked to be outpaced on this sharper track. Devon General was easy to back at 8-1 but showed a good turn of foot under young Jake Bament and can score again.

Preview: Four Burrow Point-To-Point, Trebudannon, Monday 21 April 2014

Trubudannon near St Columb Major is the location for Easter Monday’s Point-to-Point meeting, April 21st, where the Four Burrow will be holding their race day. Seven races are on offer and over 100 entries have been received.

The Prowse Limited sponsored Members Race heads up the action at 1pm. Entries include the prolific winning mare Wee Fly, trained by Ross Oliver. She could figure here, having recently run four lengths second under jockey Bryony Frost at Great Trethew, behind Blazing Whale.Wee Fly has wins in double figures and at her best could take some beating. Reliable Richie is another to consider after his third in the Intermediate at Buckfastleigh.

The Sportsmans Arms sponsored Open Maiden two mile four furlong race follows, in which the Neil Harris-trained  What About Will could come on for his second at Great Trethew, when he kept on gamely behind Theatre Goer. Lady Annabel  for trainer Polly Gundry,  ran well under jockey Robbie Henderson at Cothelstone in March, before being brought down at the last fence.

In the Truro Tractors sponsored Confined race, suggestions could be Print The Money, having run  six lengths second to King Of Alcatraz here last season, and may have needed the run on return when fifth at Great Trethew. King Cyrus from the Emma Oliver team ran third here last season and has three Chase wins to his credit. Gorteenwood, and previous course winner Benetwood, could figure if ground continues drying.

The Brewin Dolphin sponsored Ladies’ Open race, could see this seasons current leading horse Byerley Bear, who has five wins to his credit, be stalked by Lion On The Prowl, a recent Andoversford winner, from the Alexandra Dunn team. Byerley Bear had been flying until his defeat at Great Trethew when coming home in third. Connections reported that he had lost two shoes in the ground, and they will be hoping that he bounces back to form here.

In the Bonhams Cornish National Men’s Open race, the Jane Williams-trained Shalimar Fromentro could go off favourite having run eye-catchingly well at Great Trethew when winning for jockey Chester Williams.The horse runs regularly in cross country circuits in France, and could well give his connections another win here. The Janet Ackner-trained Ace High also has strong claims, having won and been placed in three mile Chases. He ran a good second last season to John Daniell at Badbury Rings, and may have needed the run when coming home fourth at Kilworthy behind Aiteenthirtythree.

Suggestions in the Restricted race, sponsored by Carrs of Truro, would be Theatre Goer from the Robert Chanin team, after her impressive maiden win at Great Trethew, and Glacial Oscar for the Henderson team, if connections choose not to run at Flete Park on Saturday.

The Lamanver Broodmares sponsored Open Maiden race concludes the day’s events in which Derniere Dance is worthy of a win soon having been placed in eight Maiden races so far including a recent second to Raffa at Kilworthy.

On course facilities include hot food and refreshments, bar, bookies and trade stands.

Entrance is £10 car and driver £20 car and passengers. Course is signed off A30 & A39 Postcode TR9 4LP
