Preview: South Pool Point to Point, Buckfastleigh, Sunday 15 February 2015

Website_SP_Preview_Banner

On Sunday February 15, The South Pool Harriers will be hosting their meeting at the Buckfastleigh track.  Pony racing kicks of the action at 11am, with the main race card commencing at 12 noon. Over 130 entries have been received.

This meeting includes the Devon & Cornwall classic race known as “The Westcountry Champion Chase” with a total prize fund of £1000 up for grabs, sponsored by Totnes and Bridgetown Races Company Ltd. Entries in this race include Hameldown Tor from the Ed Walker team, connections will hoping that he can improve on his recent second to Raffa at Wadebridge. Steeltown from the Kayley Woollacott team has been in the first two on his last five outings, and ran well at Black Forest Lodge under jockey Jamie Thomas in the Mixed Open, only just being denied a win by a neck to Coombe Hill. Blazing Whale‘s recent third under Robbie Henderson at Chipley Park, could well see him in the mix. Lucette Annie, winner of the 2013 Westcountry Champion Chase is destined for stud, but connections will be hoping that she adds to her impressive tally of eleven Point wins so far, and looks sure to have Darren Edwards on board.

Co-Op Funeral Care sponsor the opening confined race, in which the two Robert Chanin-trained entries Sweet My Lord and Kirkleigh must be respected. Also entered is Indianna Bay from the Jill Dennis team, who was unlucky to fall at the last fence here last season, but could be a danger being a previous course winner. Mic’s Delight was eye catching when finishing a short head second to Welstondruid at Black Forest Lodge, and may give his owner/trainer/ jockey vet Jennifer Davenport her first career success.

The Intermediate is sponsored by Exeter Racecourse, in which Roseyroo is the highest rated but has not yet had the benefit of a run this season. Soul Native under Will Biddick, ran a good second behind Jepeck, with Canshetrain also entered, back in third. Goodnight Vienna is another who could be fancied after his second at Larkhill in January, as could Impact Area after a win at Milborne St Andrew when sent off favourite there.

The Farriers of South Devon sponsor the Confined race for Horses and Geldings. Catching the eye is the Jackie du Plessis-trained Kit Hill, who was travelling well under jockey Jo Buck, before unseating his rider at Larkhill last month. Greendale Rocket from the Nikki Frost team showed promise when coming home third recently at Black Forest Lodge, and Peterbrown had hinted at ability under rules last season when in training with Nick Gifford, and is now trained by Karyn Heard.

In the Maiden race for Mares and Fillies only, Miss Gotaway could be fancied after being placed at this track last season, and was a close half length second in a Maiden at Upcott. Brids Classic ran three lengths-second at Barbury in December and could go close. Follow The Paint is another to have been knocking on the door for a win for the John Heard team. This race is sponsored by The Jockey Club.

Wray & Co Jewellers sponsor the Restricted race, which wraps up the weekends events. Jack Barber has been regularly sending out the winners, and he could well have another here with Ask The Weather Man, who under Will Biddick was denied a win at Larkhill only by a neck to winner Native Pride in a notably quick time. Carheney River could run well for the Karyn Heard team, having progressed quickly last season. Diamond Eclipse is another who could go close, being a previous course winner last year and may go well fresh on his seasonal debut.

The track at Buckfastleigh is easily accessed off the A38  and offers fabulous viewing. There will be plenty of bookies, trade stands and hot refreshments, including a bar.

Entrance to the Buckfastleigh track is £10 per person max £25 per car, under 16s free. Post code TQ11 OLT

REPORT: MID DEVON POINT-TO-POINT AT BLACK FOREST LODGE, SUNDAY 2ND FEBRUARY

IT was a busy afternoon at the third Black Forest Lodge fixture of the season with a total of 83 runners contesting the seven races.

Byerley Bear extended his unbeaten run to four this season with a fluent success over Mobaasher and Numbercruncher in the Ladies’ Open in the hands of Leanda Tickle. Nine-year-old Byerley Bear evidently relishes soft ground, and is currently the leading point-to-pointer in the country. Jumping soundly, the tough chestnut drew right away in the closing stages to land the AGA sponsored prize.

Byerley Bear was giving his Thorverton based trainer Robert Chanin his eighth winner of the season. This quickly became nine as the progressive youngster Welstonedruid, owned by Andrew and Sue Knox, stayed on strongly to notch his third win of the season in the Intermediate with the trainer’s son Ian in the saddle. “This horse is so lazy at home but he stays and gallops on the racecourse which is what really matters,” explained the trainer.

Iron Chancellor followed up his Wadebridge victory four weeks ago with a solid performance to take a good quality Confined event. Sue Popham trains this former winning chaser for the Harperswood Partnership at West Buckland near Taunton.

Iron Chancellor’s successful rider Michael Legg went close to scoring a double for the same yard in the 16-runner Men’s Open, but his mount Swansbrook could not quite peg back the front running Nobby Kivambo. The winner is owned by Jason Warner and trained by his jockey Mark Wall, and had travelled from the Cotswold Vale Farmers country. Nobby Kivambo kept pulling out a bit more after looking vulnerable jumping the third last. “I have had him since he was two years old and he kept going up in the handicap when he was with Brendan Powell under rules. We will stick to point-to-points now,” commented the owner, who is joint master of his local hunt.

Level Spirit came back from a two year break to win the Restricted at 10-1 under Robbie Henderson. Although described on the race card as 14-years-old, Level Spirit is only nine. The HeronIsland gelding won his Maiden in Ireland but was injured on his first run in this country. “We thought he may have needed the run today,” said his Ottery St Mary based trainer Ed Walker.

Despite a few drizzly outbursts it was fine during the afternoon despite the odd rainbow appearing over the Devon skyline. The ground was proving quite tiring however by the time the concluding maiden races took place. Given a patient ride by Matt Hampton, Thetalkinghorse came through to lead at the third last to score in his division. The well bred six-year-old is trained by Keith Cumings at Bishops Nympton, and is owned jointly by Hannah Broggio and Janet Cumings. “We got him at the Derby sales in Ireland two years ago and he is still learning,” said the trainer.

The Glamorgan gelding Canshetrain was heavily backed in the other division, but was pulled up after racing keenly early on. The prize still found its way over the SevernBridge however thanks to Bob the Butcher who was having only his second race in the colours of David Brace. Bradley Gibbs sent Bob the Butcher clear round the final bend to score easily, but it may pay to keep an eye on the placed horses Way Before Dawn and Gift of Dreams who each finished with a flourish.

MONEY TALKS

There seemed little sense in opposing BYERLEY BEAR  (4-7 touched 4-6) in the Ladies’ Open, but there was a gamble on ISLAND LIFE who was backed into 3-1 from an opening show of 8’s. This appeared to be optimistic since Island Life had been beaten out of sight behind Byerley Bear at the Silverton. . In the event he finished fourth behind the favourite this time, with Mobaasher (runner up) providing an action replay of the Silverton result.

Mark Wall’s mount SCENIC ROUTE was the whisper in the Intermediate having been seen early at 8-1 before dropping to 11-4 in a decent field. He looked fit and was prominent until after half way before being pulled up. This race went to the strong stayer Welstonedruid who found market support at 9-2 before settling at 7-2

UN AMI had created a favourable impression in his two English points after showing promise in France. This good looking grey was always tight in the Restricted betting and 11-10 on soon became 6-4 on. He got very tired in the sticky ground and was probably feeling the effects of his recent exertions when his young rider pulled him up before the last. He deserves another chance in similar company.

There was good support for DANDAN (6’s to 4’s) and GEORGE REID (14’s to 10’s) in the Restricted, with GEORGE REID and Nick Williams doing their best to shake up the eventual winner LEVEL SPIRIT who was easy to back at 10-1.

Although the punters struck first with IRON CHANCELLOR (5-2 into 2’s) the bookies came off best in the afternoon with only two winning favourites out of seven.
