Preview extract:

The James Hayes Garden Macinery-sponsored Restricted race heads up the up the main race card, with entry Doyen Dynamo the likely favourite after his one length second at Kingston St Mary. Golden Squirrel was third that day, but could figure after his second to Cracking Habit at Holnicote and would look to appreciate the drying ground. Mangans Turn stayed on well to win at Littlewindsor and could well score for the Jack Barber team.

Modbury Harriers, Flete Park, Saturday 4th May 2013 Report

Bryony Frost took a giant step towards achieving her ambition of capturing the National Novice Riders’ Championship for lady jockeys with her first ever double at Flete Park thanks to Railway Vic and Wee Fly.This double put the Devon youngster on the nine winner mark for the season, giving her a four win cushion over Brodie Hampson for the coveted title.

Once again the lovely Devon venue was blessed with pleasant sunshine and well filled car parks. Bryony initiated her double as Railway Vic followed up his recent course win in the Restricted, just outstaying Alysia’s Flame in a driving finish. Railway Vic, who was winning for the third time this season, is trained by Bryony’s mother Nikki, and is owned by Susan Roe who has been associated with the Frost yard for several years.

Wee Fly is one of the toughest and most consistent mares in the pointing field and duly showed her battling qualities when thwarting John Daniell’s bid for a seasonal treble in the four miles Ladies Open. Bryony Frost was content to bide her time on Wee Fly but Amanda Bush had John Daniell in a slight lead when her mount blundered badly at the final fence, Wee Fly and her determined 18-year-old rider did not need a second invitation and was not for denying once she had her head in front on the run-in.

“Wee Fly came into season yesterday but she has now won this race for the last four years,” said owner/ trainer Ross Oliver. Bryony’s double took her to the nine winner mark for the season, giving her a comfortable lead for the National title.

Ollie Bush had saddled the Ladies’ runner-up John Daniell, and quickly gained consolation as West End justified 2-1 favouritism for her yard in the two and a half miles Maiden. The Westerner gelding was given a perfect hold up ride by Josh Guerriero who picked his way through the field to lead inside the final quarter mile on the good looking six-year-old. “I had a job to pull him up. He likes quick ground but had been running freely in his races,” said the North Devon based jockey whose career is due to take a new shape when he joins rookie trainer Dan Skelton as assistant trainer in the summer.

Eight faced the starter for the three miles Open Maiden, but front running Talland Bay turned the race into a procession from a long way out, eventually scoring by six lengths under Geoff Barfoot-Saunt in a very commendable time. The home bred winner is owned by Marcella Baylis together with her parents Alan and Edna, and is trained by Marcella at St Veep near Lostwithiel. “Talland Bay is a lovely ride but can be a bit quirky. We moved down to Cornwall last winter from the Cotswolds (where she trained plenty of winners in that area). “I led up Earth Summit when he won the Grand National and was given him to hunt when he retired,” she confided.

All three Mens Open runners were in contention approaching the last, but Swansbrook is nothing if not game, and pulled out extra to hold Osric and odds-on Uncle Keef. Sue Popham handles Swansbrook on behalf of joint owners Peter Williams and David Meyrick. The ten-year-old was snapped up by the Pophams at Doncaster sales last May for £3,200 on the recommendation of Brendan Powell. “I think we will have to go back to Doncaster sales next week,” joked the trainer. “I have had six winners from four horses this year and they are all still in training. Swansbrook jumps point-to-point fences particularly well,” added Sue.

Robert Chanin’s Thorverton yard has also been amongst the winners and Molland Gayle became the trainer’s seventh pointing winner of the season to add to Kirkleigh’s two Hunter Chase successes when winning the Confined. Pauillac looked the likely winner at the top of the hill, but the patiently ridden winner took command after jumping the last to win going away. “They went too fast early on and I kept a bit in hand,” reported Leanda Tickle who was deputising for Molland Gayle’s regular rider Ian Chanin. “It is unusual for one of the boys (Ian or Tom) not to ride ours but Leanda did well,” commented Robert Chanin who trains the Dr Massini mare for a local syndicate. At least Ian had the satisfaction of riding a winner on the same day at the Tredegar Farmers meeting in South Wales.

REPORT: DART VALE & HALDON HARRIERS MEETING- 18 MARCH 2012

GRANVILLE TAYLOR GIVES HIS RACE-BY-RACE ANALYSIS

Devon & Cornwall jockeys are riding high as we reach the half way point of the season. With 14 of the scheduled 29 meetings in the area completed, West country riders stand at the head of the four main National championship titles. Will Biddick added two weekend winners to take his total to 23, but he is now being chased by Darren Edwards on 16 after Darren recorded trebles at Cothelstone and Buckfastleigh at the weekend. Jo Buck enjoyed three winners over the weekend to elevate herself to the head of the National Ladies’ title race, and Leanda Tickle and Kieron Edgar lead their respective novice rider championships at the moment.

The going was good to soft and the course was in great shape for the second and final Buckfastleigh meeting of the season

Intermediate (Connolly’s Red Mills)

My synopsis of the South Pool Intermediate run at Buckfastleigh last month read: “This could turn out to be one of the most informative intermediates of the season.” I was nearly right because that race was by far the most informative of the season with nine subsequent winners amongst the cast that day. Lucette Annie had run her usual game race on that occasion in finishing third behind the very smart pair of Keppols Hill and Penmore Mill. Her turn came here as she made all the running to put a decent field in their place. Trained by Simon Partridge at Poundsgate on behalf of Chris and Janet Hunphrey, this gutsy mare acts well on soft ground and formed part of the day’s triple winning tally of Darren Edwards.“She acts well on good or soft ground but not on the firm. She is happier going left handed really and she could go for a hunter chase,” was the trainer’s post-race summary.

Men’s Open (Totnes & Bridgetown Races Company)

Benedictus is a progressive seven-year-old and came good here at his first attempt in Open company. Jack Barber sent the chestnut to the front before half way and shook off the attentions of Joaaci at the second last after a fine display of jumping. Accurate jumping always gives a spectacular sight down the back straight at Buckfastleigh. “I kept kicking him and asking him,” reported the rider who had just been touched off on Chapoturgeon in the Christie’s Cheltenham Foxhunter two days previously. Trainer Jane Western has her sights set on one of the Intermediate finals at Cheltenham or Exeter for Benedictus.

Restricted (AGL Accountants, Kingsbridge)

Leslie Jefford’s yard has turned out a succession of winners this month and Lizzy’s Lass added to a double for the yard at Cothelstone on the previous day. All three winners were partnered by the reigning Devon & Cornwall lady champion Jo Buck. Showing a mature judgement of pace, Jo was content to bide her time and delayed her challenge until the last possible moment to head Alysia’s Flame inside the last 100 yards. “Lizzy’s Lass stays well and they played into our hands. She produced her to perfection,” said the trainer. A likeable grey, the six-year-old failed to sparkle on her seasonal debut at Great Trethew when she had just recovered from a cough, but is surely destined to win more races.

Open Maiden

Division 1 (Winston Pincombe)

Will Biddick rode a confident race on the 6-4 favourite Provo, easing his mount into contention along the far side to track the leaders King Kash and Lightening Jack. King Kash put up brave resistance, but Provo quickened past him in style after jumping the last to win convincingly. Provo is a five-year-old by Presenting trained by Richard Barber on behalf of owners Hilton and Lyn Ramseyer, “I bought him at Doncaster sales as a three-year-old (for £35,000) and like most Presentings he is taking time to mature,” said Hilton. Provo ran with promise on his only racecourse appearance in an Ascot bumper last October and missed his intended pointing debut at Charlton Horthorne last week when he pulled a shoe off. He is destined to join Paul Nicholls to go hurdling when his pointing education is complete.

Division 2 (Brookwell Supplies)

It was fitting that the Edwards family should provide Darren with one of his weekend winners. Shanann Star is trained by Darren’s father at their Wheddon Cross base and had been placed in all three of her English points. She gained reward for her consistency here at the expense of Noble Legacy and La Soie, who each shaped like staying types. Ann’s Lottery looked booked for a place until jumping left at the last, and this was probably an informative Maiden. Shanann Star showed promise in Irish points at the end of last year and was bought by current connections at Ascot sales just before Christmas. “She settled better today and would prefer better ground,” said Gordon Edwards, who may be tempted to send her summer jumping. Keiron Edgar broke a collar bone when Miss Cupcake fell at the 15

Hunt Race (Mr John Bond in memory of his late wife)

Edward Darke’s fine old servant Karinga Coin (Richard Woollacott) took up the running after the second last, but stumbled on landing over the final fence and went down narrowly to Gunpark, despite rallying near the post. “I got a bit lucky winning this,” was the modest appraisal of jockey Darren Edwards. Gunpark is trained by Sam Holdsworth for joint owners Rebecca Welch and Charlie Eyston

Ladies’ Open (Bartons Solicitors)

Ha Ho Magregor (Suzy Berry) took the measure of his sole opponent Karley as he forged two lengths clear on the run to the last. It looked plain sailing until half way up the run-in, when the 10-year-old decided he had done enough and put the brakes on, allowing Karley to sail past for victory. Ha Ho was certainly no joke for Suzy Berry, who also trains the reluctant runner-up, and was having only her second ride back following a nasty injury at Larkhill ten weeks ago. The beneficiary of Ha Ho’s antics, Karley, was giving 25-year-old Cordelia Chugg her second career winner. Pat Glenn’s gelding is from the Ed Walker yard and Cordelia combines riding out at the Ottery yard at weekends alongside her job as a Norland nanny in London.

Confined Novice Riders’ (Luscombe Maye)

Vic’s World (Bryony Frost) defeated Fier Destrier (Ben Keatley) in a match with the winner making all the running and jumping accurately. Bryony had ridden her first winner just a week ago and rode an assured race on the 10-year-old trained by her mother Nikki. “He belongs to a small syndicate we have formed called The Wellie Boot Group and as a way of encouraging owners they have three horses in training for the price of one,” explained Bryony.

REPORT: DART VALE &HALDON HARRIERS MEETING – 19 MARCH 2011

GRANVILLE TAYLOR GIVES HIS RACE-BY-RACE ANALYSIS

The old Buckfastleigh racecourse provided a superb setting for some high class point-to-point total of 63 runners contested the seven races.

Mixed Open (Totnes and Bridgetown Races Company)

This race is billed as the Westcountry Champion Chase and offers a total of £1,000 in prize money. The purse went to the Portman qualified Vintage Class who started odds-on favourite and basically outclassed his five rivals under his rider/trainer Michael Miller. Jean’s Joy (Polly Gundry) and Holly Walk (Jimmy Cole) took turns in the lead, with Vintage Class moving ominously well stalking the leaders. Holly Walk kept herself in contention thanks to some athletic jumps down the far side, but Vintage Class began to assert approaching the final fence before drawing away on the flat to score comfortably. Vintage Class is a strong, good looking eight-year-old who could not win an egg and spoon race under rules in eight attempts in Ireland. He has now won five point-to-points in this country since being acquired by Beaminster owner Bill Dupont as a six-year-old. “He really needs cut in the ground and we may go for a Novice hunter chase at Exeter if it rains enough,” reported the owner. Bill seems to have acquired a bargain in Vintage Class. His half brother called Oscar Nominee fetched £100,000 at Doncaster last May and is now with Nicky Henderson. Jimmy Cole was delighted by his mare Holly Walk’s performance in finishing second. “She is getting back to her best after a virus,” reported the Tavistock rider. Jean’s Joy stayed on late to finish third, just ahead of Minella Tipperary.

Intermediate (Connolly’s Red Mills)

The Worcestershire gelding Drom was backed from 11-8 to evens and gave a workmanlike performance after setting off in front. The eight-year-old was never headed and ran on resolutely when tackled by recent Ottery winner Benedictus after the second last. Drom is certainly proving a friend to form students. He won twice last year and was runner up to the useful Blackstaff at Black Forest last month. His subsequent second to Over The Phone in a hunter chase at Leicester reads even better since Over The Phone was successful at Newton Abbot last Sunday (March 20th). Drom is trained by Paul Davies at Bromyard, and is a likely candidate for the final of this series at Cheltenham in May. Jockey John Mathias was making his first visit to Buckfastleigh and Drom was his only ride of the day, but the 20-year-old Welshman made history on the following day when setting a British point-to-point record with an astonishing six winners from seven rides at Cilwendeg, Pembrokeshire.

Restricted (AGL Chartered Accountants Ltd)

This was the strongest Restricted run in the Area this season. Eight of the 11 runners had already won this term. Despite the quality of the field, the Richard Barber trained Curtain Razer was sent off evens favourite. The five-year-old had created a good impression when winning on his debut at Ottery, and Will Biddick was content to hold him up until joining Wayward Frolic and Alysia’s Flame after the final ditch. Alysia’s Flame gave Polly Gundry a nasty fall at the 16th, bringing down Hereweareagain, leaving Curtain Razer and Wayward Frolic to fight it out. The pair quickened in unison and raced neck and neck on the long sweeping run to the final fence where Curtain Razer’s inside advantage began to tell. Biddick’s mount forged clear on the run-in to score by four lengths, with Rockon Xmoor coming from a long way back to snatch third. The winner is owned by Graham Roach and is undoubtedly being primed to join Paul Nicholls in due course. “He will probably have another point-to-point,” said the owner. Runner up Wayward Frolic is another fine prospect, and Lizzie’s Lass and Prudent George are just two others to watch from this race.

Open Maiden Division 1 (Winston Pincombe, Chulmleigh)

This turned into a straight fight between Valoroso (Ian Chanin) and The Accordionist (Will Biddick), with six-year-old Valoroso just holding the persistent challenge of his rival from the second last. The winner was bred by his owner Audrey Goodwin and is trained by Ed Walker who said: “We will turn him away if the ground dries up because he is a nice prospect for next year.” Ian Chanin was partnering his eighth winner of the season on Valoroso.

Open Maiden Division 2 (Bartons Solicitors)

Punters latched on to a Graham Roach owned youngster making his racecourse debut in the shape of Watergate Bay from the Richard Barber yard. The five-year-old is a full brother to the same owner’s useful chaser Fistral Beach. This time the cash stayed with the bookies as the 5-4 favourite had nothing left when push came to shove. Sixyear-old Tans Hill came out on top, fulfilling the promise he had shown on his debut at Great Trethew under a good ride from Joe Tickle. Tans Hill was always travelling well and joined the leaders entering the final circuit before staying on resolutely to hold the strong finishing Tamatown. “One of the nicest I have ridden,” said Joe. The winner is owned and trained by Jill Dennis. A good looking son of the 2,000gns runner up Revoque, he was bought as a foal in Ireland and is: “on the market,” according to connections.

Confined Novice Riders’ (Luscombe Maye)

21-year-old Micheal Nolan is one of the jockey finds of the season. The Irishman joined Philip Hobbs only a few months ago, and was riding his fourth winner of the season here from only a handful of rides. The Christine Gray trained veteran Quizzling has now been responsible for three of Nolan’s winners, and was scoring for the third consecutive time. Quizzling was hard pressed from the penultimate but ran on gamely to beat Mistified, with Rockwithacaveman unable to get in a blow in third.

Hunt Race (John Bond in memory of his late wife Kath)

Only three runners with Tom Chanin setting a very slow pace on Aryshvic, ahead of two other maiden pointers in Award Winning and Ducal Daisey. Award Winning, with 17-year-old Lara Sliwinski having her first ride in public, threw down a late challenge, but the Robert Chanin trained Aryshvic maintained her advantage to win by three-quarters of a length. Aryshvic’s owners Trevor and Carrie Marks owned one of the best pointers of the 1980’s called Stanwick Lad who won 42 times in their colours, mainly in the Midlands and East Anglia. They have recently moved to the West Country and their daughter Amanda Burden is also a member of Aryshvic’s owners’ group.
