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.

South Tetcott, Upcott Cross Preview

The popular course of Upcott Cross is the venue for this Monday Bank Holiday’s South Tetcott Point-to-Point meeting where over 120 entries have been received for the seven race card – in addition to the two pony races which start the day’s action at 1pm.

Penbode Vet Group sponsor the Confined race, in which Bon Viveur could go one better than second at the course last time. Ned White won his Maiden here last season and had been runner-up in many Restricted races before finally winning at Trebudannon earlier this month on good to firm ground. Print The Money won at Bratton Down last weekend and is a previous course winner here for the Jill Dennis team.

A host of talent could line up in the Simpkins Edwards-sponsored Mens Open including the Kayley Jones-trained Checkerboard who could follow up on his win at Trebudannon. Richard Barber‘s Mustangsallyrally who scored an open win this season at Little Windsor and the Sue Popham-trained Swansbrook who has four point-to-point wins this season and has strong claims.

In the AGA Ladies Open, Alexandra Dunn‘s Double Mead is a Ladies Open specialist and also has three Hunter Chase wins to add to her seasons tally. His main challenger could be in the form of King Of Alcatraz, who won the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate final when beating Blinding Lights into second for jockey Vicky Wade. Rio Gael is an interesting addition to Sam Holdsworth’s yard and gave owner Charles Stanley a win first time out at Holnicote when beating Quedillac into second.

The Restricted has attracted a massive 32 entries and local jockey Michael Heard would be a popular winner here. He rode both All But Grey and Suesacomin to win their Maidens at Trebudannon and if this race is divided he may well retain both rides. Roxy Doodles, trained by his father John, could be another option so should not be dismissed. Gospel Preacher from the Kayley Jones team won his Maiden in fine style here at the Upcott meeting when sent off 2-1 favourite.

My Minds Maid, trained by Harry Fry, has been running well with wins at Little Windsor and Badbury Rings and could see Dean McNamara get the leg-up this time in the Club Members race for Novice Riders. Caspian Piper has been progressing well and led throughout to win at Holnicote in a strong race under Mathew Barber and the prolific winner Southwestern came out of retirement this season and gave 19-year-old Laura Scott a win at Cothelstone two weeks ago.

The Open Maiden has been divided with 19 entered in each division; these have been sponsored by Kivells and TC Cleaning Services inc Cleanmart.

On course facilities include; bookmaker’s, bar, catering, and trade stands. Entrance is £20 per car and £10 for car and driver only.

Four Burrow, Trebudannon, Sunday 12th May 2013 Report

P2PDC_PRO_Ball-003-WebTHE Four Burrow meeting provided an action replay for jockeys Robbie Henderson and Michael Heard, who each repeated their doubles at Upcott Cross just six days earlier. Morning rain gave way to drizzle and low cloud as the afternoon progressed on this popular Cornish track.

Henderson’s day had started on the wrong foot when his mount in the opener, Secret Meeting, slipped and deposited him on the ground on the bend entering the final circuit. The 23-year-old rider soon bounced back however , when Checkerboard, owned by his parents and trained by Kayley Jones took the PPORA Club race for ten-year-olds and over.

12 of the 13 entries faced the starter in this competitive event, but Checkerboard took command at the third last and just held the late thrust of Yufo (Vicky Wade), with Knoxhill Archie just denying 2-1 favourite Wee Fly of third spot.

Henderson completed his double with a positive ride on Jopero who made all the running to win the Mixed Open. The well backed Searree looked a big danger at the penultimate fence, but Jopero was in no mood for being beaten and held off his challenger to win by a neck at the lucrative odds of 25-1. Eight-year-old Jopero, who was opening his account for the season, is jointly owned by Royston Britton, Peter Wade and John Gardener. Jopero is also in the Kayley Jones yard, but the trainer missed seeing her double as she was away saddling her runners at Holnicote. Responding to a stewards inquiry about apparent improvement in form, John Gardener stated that Jopero had, “not had the ground all year and had appreciated the firmer ground conditions.”

Front running tactics also paid off for Michael Heard who took All But Grey into a long lead in the two and a half miles Maiden and never looked like being caught. The cutely named winner is actually a roan gelding , owned by Pilton based Robert Napper and his daughter Gemma and trained by Christine Gray. All But Grey is home bred from the point-to-point mare Butleigh Rose. “All But Grey was a bit unlucky at our local Mendip Farmers meeting when he finished second to a subsequent bumper runner up,” commented the owner.

Michael Heard completed his double with an emphatic pillar to post success on Suesacomin in the three miles Open Maiden. This late developing Teofilio grey mare started favourite on the strength of her good recent second at Flete Park and drew right away from Mr Bachster in the closing stages. The winner was bred locally by Mary Gliddon and is one of only two pointers in the Lamerton yard of Tony Boon who trains her for a local syndicate. “We have tried lots of different headgear and took it all off today,” said Tony, who doubles up his training with running a dairy herd after, “hunting hounds for 35 years.”

It was a day for front runners and Youwouldtoo continued the trend under James Ridley in the Mares and Fillies Maiden, just holding Robbie Henderson’s late challenge on Ratline Rosie. The winner had travelled from Zoe Hammond’s Worcestershire base with connections paying a first visit to the Trebudannon track. Youwouldtoo is owned by her breeder Don Constable who commented, “we were delighted to see the rain today. She has a lovely attitude and got a soft lead.” Her jockey James Ridley, 24 last week, was partnering his sixth winner of the season and reported, “she was a bit green and hanging across to the other horse on the run-in.”

Ned White was also in command from flag fall in the closing Restricted and kept on gamely under Tom Chanin as Miss Cupcake threw down her challenge in the home straight. Jacqui Elliott’s habitual front runner, trained by Robert Chanin, had finished runner-up on his last three outings and rewarded his faithful supporters when justifying 2-1 favouritism on this occasion.

RESULTS

Four Burrow, Trebudannon Preview

Trebudannon near St Columb Major is the location for this weekend’s Point-to-Point action on Sunday May 12th – the course offers excellent viewing and with six races attracting nearly one hundred entries so a great days racing is in store.

The racing kicks off at 2pm with the Open Maiden for horses and geldings two miles four furlongs sponsored by Stephen Scow. Raffa for the Kayley Jones yard could follow up on his second at Flete Park behind Jennys Layla when a mistake at the last may have lost him the race and the Christine Gray-trained All But Grey has hints of ability when second at Ston Eston behind Blue Button and the yard is inform having saddled Gingers Reflection to win at Upcott Cross last weekend.

Roberts Of Trevarthen sponsor the Club Members race, in which Checkerboard could follow up on his Mens Open win at Wadebridge for jockey Robbie Henderson and then scored a second behind the Barber-trained Flanshan at Stafford Cross. Oedipe under Rhys Jenkins outstayed his rivals in the home straight to win at Maismore Park and is another with strong claims.

The PPORA Club Members Mares Maiden 2m4f could see Reves D’Armour for trainer Ed Walker come home in front having run a good second behind West End at Flete Park last weekend. She also ran a creditable second behind Jasper Jazz at Kingston St Mary last month, although this race may suit Stir On The Sea for trainer Nikki Frost. The mare ran well under daughter Bryony at Flete Park in April before fading three out and is sure to come on for that run.

Brewin Dolphin sponsor the Mixed Open, with both Blazing Whale and King Of Alcatraz having Hunter Chase entries this week so are unlikely runners. However, this still leaves a strong field in which the Emma Oliver-trained King Cyrus who goes well for jockey Merv Woodward and if his connections decide to switch him to Pointing he could be the one to follow here. He won a Chase at Taunton last season having made all and kept on gamely and ran third at Taunton this season behind Benedictus. Jayne’s Crusader is another to consider having been sent off even money favourite at Larkhill and only just failed to score when half a length behind Bedrock Fred and could challenge here if travelling down from Sally Alners yard at Okeford Fitzpatrick. Rush’N’Roll is also worth noting after his impressive seven length win for the Legg family at Stafford Cross.

Next up is the open maiden which is sponsored by Chris and Sarita Perkins whose Porloe Alvin finished 24th at Badminton at the weekend.

The final race of the day is the restricted and those to consider include Bradley Brook who has has strong claims having won a 15 runner maiden at Little Windsor in April beating Lord Samson by eight lengths; Gontdevon who was just denied a restricted win when second by half a length to Ann’s Lottery and Jennys Layla who won her maiden at Flete beating Raffa by a length.

The course is located at St Columb Major (signed off A30 & A39) postcode TRP 4LP. Entrance £20 per car load £10 car and driver and all on course facilities bar, bookmakers and hot refreshments are available.
