Preview: Dartmoor Point-To-Point, Flete Park, Saturday 16th April 2016

Website_Preview_D16

Written by: Donna Harris

The first of two Point-to-Point’s to take place at the popular picnic track of Flete Park near Ermington this season takes place on Saturday 16th April. A fantastic day out is on offer with two pony races heading up the action which starts at 1pm these have been kindly sponsored by Flete Estate owner Anthony Mildmay-White. The main seven race card starts at 2pm and has attracted over 120 entries.

The opening Members race sponsored by A Salon Called Fish looks to be a battle between local jockey’s, many of which are pony racing graduates, these include Pippa Glanville riding four times course winner Ambitious Pursuit, Millie Wonnacott riding Coombe Hill a winner of eleven Points and six Hunter Chases , recent Cherrybrook winner Jennifer Davenport on Mic’s Delight, Bronwyn Buttery with Buckfastleigh winner Doctor Henry, Hannah Welch on the Charlie Stanley-owned Beuvron, and Thomasina Eyston with recent Great Trethew winner Ladyvie.

AGA-sponsor the four-mile Mixed Open race in which previous course winner Bellflower Boy‘s connections will be hoping he can stay the distance again having previously won at last years May meeting. Buck’s Bond has Chase form under rules when in training with champion trainer Paul Nicholls, and ran well for the Jack Barber team when second behind Delphi Mountain at Ston Eston. Imperial Circus is another with form under rules and is out of the Phillip Hobbs yard, now with the Mitford Slades at Pontispool, he had a win at Cothelstone last month and has shown some solid form this season.

Leading trainer Jack Barber has both Athreeothree who won his maiden at Charlton Hawthorne, and Ston Eston winner Rouge Devils who is partly owned by Sir Alex Ferguson entered in the Kitsons-sponsored Restricted race with the booking of jockey Will Biddick either entry will go close . The Keith Cumings team also looks double handed with Steel Brush and High Priority and will figure high in the betting ring out of the 19 entered.

Francis Clarke sponsor the first Open Maiden race for four, five and six year-olds, in which the Ed Walker-trained L’ane Fou having run second at this track last season and a recent runner up at Great Trethew, would look to be one of the bookies favorites out of the 24 entered. Ruby Fool from the Richard Mitford Slade team is another scoring a good runner up spot when a head second at Cothelstone under jockey Jamie Thomas, with Fishy Story from the Stuart Sampson team also being a suggestion having run well at Buckfastleigh on holding ground finishing fourth.

Rogers of Plymouth sponsor the Club Members race in which Ned The Post is to be considered having run a close second at Upton Upon Severn, and Turtle Tim from the Emma Pidsley team is another that could go close having run second recently to Champagne Rosie at Milborne St Andrew.

Delphi Mountain for trainer/jockey Emma Watson looks the pick of those entered in Elizabeth May Memorial Confined race, already on a seasons hat-trick of wins with the latest when staying on gamely to win at Ston Eston one and a half lengths ahead of Buck’s Bond. Whatastormnorm from the Robert Chanin team is another to note having recent wins at both Buckfastleigh and Great Trethew under jockey Tom Chanin, with the combination having traveled well here in the maiden race last season before falling at the last fence.

The final race of the day Tony Glynn Scaffolding-sponsored Open Maiden race in which those with recent runner up places who should figure are Gold Relief, L’ane Fou if not competing in the earlier maiden, Rainbow Stripes and Ruby Fool.

There will be a space hopper charity race at the end of the day, in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund and to celebrate Amy Roberts’s hen party.

On course facilities include hot food and refreshments, bar, bookies, trade stands and track side viewing complimenting the fabulous atmosphere. Entrance to the course is £10 per person up to a maximum of £30 per car. Children under 16 go free. Dogs on leads welcome. Course is located at Flete Park near Ermington, nr Ivybridge Postcode PL21 9NX.

South Pool Harriers, Buckfastleigh Preview

The old racecourse at Buckfastleigh is the location for this Sunday’s point-to-point, and with the recent hard frosts claiming several race meetings, all roads will lead to the meeting where a bumper day of action is on the cards.

A total of 150 entries have been received in all with a high class mixed open the feature race. Prior to the main card which kicks of at 12 noon, two pony races will take place at 11am and 11.20am. Many top jockeys, including Sam Twiston-Davies and Hadden Frost, have graduated from pony racing and it’s a chance to see future stars in action.

The Farriers of South Devon sponsor the opening Confined Maiden race for horses and geldings only and has attracted 15 entries.

Next up is the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate race which is a qualifier for a Hunter Chase final at Exeter on Devon Life Ladies’ Night which takes place on Tuesday, May 8. Twenty three are entered and these include Benedictus who ran well last season when a surprise 20-1 winner in an 18 runner Restricted race in a quick time. Another interesting entry is Buck’s Bond, trained by Richard Barber, looked a likely winner before unseating his rider at the second last on his only run last year.

Then there is The Westcountry Champion Chase Winners Only Mixed Open Race. Sponsored by Totnes & Bridgetown Races Co this is the Devon and Cornwall Area Classic race, and has a total prize fun of £1000. It has attracted 23 high class runners and looks to be a thrilling battle.

The prolific winner Southwestern could be looking to add to his two wins at Wadebridge already this season. He won this race here last year and is on track for another cracking season for his trainer Camilla Scott and jockey Neil Harris.

Lining up to challenge could be Chapoturgeon. He won the Jewson chase at the Cheltenham festival in 2009 when trained by Paul Nicholls who jointly owns him. He impressed again on his Hunter Chase debut when winning at Newbury last month.

For The Staff won at Chipley Park when pleasing his jockey Jo Buck making virtually all of the running. Trained by Nigel Edmonds the horse is reported to have benefited from a wind operation.

Gwanako, trained by Richard Barber, was second in the Ladies Open at Larkhill in January. He has previously won chases at Ascot and Aintree when ridden by Ruby Walsh. He is likely to be aimed at the Aintree Foxhunters this season.

Mustangsallyrally could improve on his second at Larkhill in January and Bishy Barnaby a previous course winner, needs to find his old form having disappointed his connections on his first run this season in a hunter chase at Warwick.

Wrays & Co Jewellers, Kingsbridge& Plymouth sponsor the Open Maiden Race for Mares and Fillies only. With 29 entered this race could well be split.

Co-Op Funeral Care sponsor the Confined race and 22 are entered. Alpha Native won at Ideford Arch when sent off favourite. Ballybrown had some creditable form in 2009.

PSP Insurance & Financial Solutions Limited sponsor the Restricted. This race has already been divided with 19 entered in each.

In the first division Buck’s Bond was unlucky at Larkhill when sent off the odds on favourite and was hampered and unseated his jockey Will Biddick. Battle Bridge started the season with a win at Tweseldown and followed up with a second at Black Forest Lodge to Delta Borget.

In the second division of the Restricted Blinding Lights impressed at Chipley Park with an easy win. Googoobarabajagal is progressive and worth noting.

The old racecourse at Buckfastleigh provides excellent viewing for all and has easy access off A38. Postcode TQ11 OLT

There are several trade stand, bookies, a licensed bar (with real Ale) and catering marquee serving great hot food/drinks and homemade cakes at affordable prices.

Entry fee £20 per car load £10 car/driver only £7 pedestrians.
