Preview: East Cornwall Foxhounds Point-To-Point, Great Trethew, Liskeard, Sunday March 30

The seasons current leading horse Byerley Bear could take on Gwanako in the Roger Young sponsored Mixed Open, at this weekend’s East Cornwall Point-to-Point, Great Trethew, Sunday March 30th. The two horses met at Wadebridge in December, when the Robert Chanin-trained Byerley Bear won by four lengths.

Gwanako trained by Rosemary Loxton for jockey Megan Nicholls will be looking to reverse the placings, and follow-up on last weekend’s win at Ston Easton. The combination have also scored this season at Larkhill, Milbourne St Andrew (where they destroyed the field by 60 lengths) and won at Charleton Horethorne. Byerley Bear has taken his tally to five wins for the season, and was only just denied six straight wins when awarded a second by judges at Badbury Rings, to the Jack Barber-trained Aikideau. This could turn into a thrilling battle between the two class horses.

This event coincides with Mother’s Day , starting with pony racing at 12 noon, followed by an eight race card commencing at 12.55. Over 100 entries have been received.The picnics are sure to be packed full of treats to compliment the party atmosphere.

The Cornish Times sponsor the opening Members race, which kicks off the main card. Gingers Reflection would be a popular winner here for trainer Christine Gray, having won at Upcott Cross last season in a very respectable time. Another entry, Fountains Cloud won this race last year, and was running well at Wadebridge, before being headed three out.

St Austell Brewery have sponsored the Open Maiden for four and five year olds. Suggestions here would be What About Will trained by Neil Harris, having shown previous form last season when a good second behind All But Grey at Trebudannon, and may be forgiven for pulling up three out at Wadebridge when sent off favourite. Dusky, from the Joe Tickle yard, ran second behind Sangram at Wadebridge and looks to be worth an each-way bet.

The Open Maiden for four,five,six and seven year olds, may well be divided on the day having attracted 34 entries, sponsors are The Jamaica Inn and Dawe,Hawken & Dodd. Those having shown recent form are the Les Jefford-trained Desert Queen, when fourth at Buckfastleigh under jockey Ed Barrett, having made a mistake two out. Way Before Dawn is another to consider having stayed on well when finishing eight lengths second at Buckfastleigh in February. Droim Rua for trainer David Rogers should also be considered, having run well at Buckfastleigh until fading two out, and looks sure to come on for that run.

In the Dodson & Horrell PPORA Club Members Race for Novice Riders, Join Together won at Charleton Horethorne under Megan Nicholls for trainer Rosemary Loxton, and Ladyvie for jockey Hannah Welch, has been progressing well, having scored a recent second at Buckfastleigh.

Exeter Racecourse sponsor the Intermediate race, in which the Gordon Edwards-trained Shanann Star could improve on her six lengths second behind Babeny Bridge, and King’s Bench won at Buckfastleigh and looks ready to step up into Intermediate company.

The Restricted race could see the Keith Cumings-trained Go On Henry follow up on his win at Badbury Rings. Sangram for trainer Nikki Frost was impressive when winning at the first time of asking when making virtually all at Wadebridge under Bryony Frost, coming home twelve lengths ahead of Dusky.

Jeffery’s sponsor the Confined race, Cottage Acre for trainer Karyn Heard, won last weekend at Kilworthy for Bryony Frost, so may not be out so soon, in which case, Great Gusto could give the Frost family another win here.

On course facilities include hot refreshments, bar, bookies and trade stands. Course is located at Menheniot, (off A38), between Saltash and Liskeard – PL14 3PZ

Entrance £15 car & driver, £20 car and passengers, £5 pedestrians.

BADBURY RINGS- 23 FEB 2014- COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE POINT-TO-POINT

Commiserations to Jo Buck, who was taken to hospital with a suspected fractured ankle after a fall from Ross Oliver’s House of Fun in one of the Maiden races.

Jo took the Devon & Cornwall area champion lady rider title in 2011 and 2012. “It’s the same ankle that she broke in that fall at Cheltenham (May 2012),” reported Ross Oliver, who had travelled his six-year-old House of Fun on a 360 miles round trip from his base in Cornwall.

It was a long afternoon at Badbury Rings where a total of 121 runners turned out on remarkably good going. The planned seven-race card was extended to 11 thanks to four events having to be divided on the day which began with a shock 100-1 winner in the opening Conditions race. This was recent Chipley Park failure Dona (Sam Painting), from the Barbury Castle yard of Laura Thomas. The second part of the Conditions race also saw punters in a pickle with Bringinthebranston (Tom David) scoring at 20-1 for Pyle, Bridgend owner/trainer David Brace.

The Silverton qualified Byerley Bear was seeking his fifth successive win of the season in the AGA Ladies’ Open. Despite seeing off the hot favourite Master Medic, Leanda Tickles’s mount was caught by Aikideau in the last stride Last season’s Devon & Cornwall champion lady Bryony Frost rode a fine, patient waiting race on the winner who was following up his recent Larkhill win. Byerley Bear lost little in defeat, “He will go to Wadebridge next,” said owner Roger Knowles.

Another rider in the wars was Camilla Henderson who was injured when Khyber Kim came down in the home straight in the Novice Riders’ contest. “She has a broken nose and was put into a neck brace as a precaution”, said her father, champion National Hunt trainer Nicky Henderson. This event went to 16-year-old Sean Bowen on David Brace’s Cock of the Rock, with Devon horses King of the Road and Clew Bay Cove filling the places.

Chester Williams was another 16 –year-old jockey to reach the winner’s enclosure when Un Ami, owned and trained by his mother Jane near Barnstaple, gave the schoolboy rider his third career winner in a Restricted division.

Devon based horses dominated the first divided Maiden. The Tiverton qualified Tackler, trained by Marie McGuinness and ridden by Conor Smith looked a bright prospect scoring in his division by 25 lengths, and the sturdy six-year-old Go On Henry (Josh Guerriero) opened his account for Keith and Janet Cumings in the other section.

Minella Web had run well at Black Forest last month and stepped up on that effort to land another maiden division for the Kayley Woollacott yard at Rose Ash, partnered by Jamie Thomas.

The Ed Walker trained Hameldown Tor stayed on steadily to finish runner-up under Robbie Henderson in the Men’s Open, but could not quite cope with Ravethebrave, (Joe Hill)  who bounced back from a moderate effort at Higham last time out to take the prize to Oxfordshire.

Michael Legg was the only rider to complete a double on the marathon card. He took the first section of the Restricted under Driftwood Pride, and as the light began to fade in the final race he gained a neck verdict on Driving Onwards, just denying the Leslie Jefford representative Last Edition.

Larkhill

THE reigning Devon & Cornwall area Ladies’ champion Bryony Frost paid a successful visit to Larkhill on Saturday when scoring on her only ride AIKIDEAU in the nine strong Ladies’ Open. The formerly useful National Hunt performers Silverburn and Stonemaster departed at the second fence, and Bryony’s mount Aikideau took the measure of runner-up Boomtown Kat when the latter blundered at the second last.

Now trained by Jack Barber, the winner was placed in Grade 3 novice hurdle company for Paul Nicholls and obviously finds racing between the flags an easier option.

Jack Barber, in his first season training pointers just half a mile from his grandfather Richard Barber’s yard, had earlier saddled and ridden the seven-year-old mare SUBTLE SOVEREIGN to win the 19 – runner Restricted

THEATRE QUEEN had blotted her copybook earlier in the season at Wadebridge when losing 30 lengths at the start before finishing third, but this very smart mare more than made amends with an impressive 12 lengths victory under her trainer Mark Wall in the Coronation Cup. This race is one of the season’s point-to-point classics and the mare’s scalps included the useful pointers Bellsinni Ron (Will Biddick) and Rumbavu (Sam Waley-Cohen)

The going on Salisbury Plain was just on the soft side which was quite remarkable considering the amount of rainfall and the loss of many other fixtures.
