Britain’s 2014/15 point-to-point season is to be celebrated in style at a stunning new venue and with a record-breaking champion to honour.

The Four Pillars Hotel, a lakeside location within Cotswold Water Park in Gloucestershire, is to be the stage for the National Awards Dinner and Dance, which takes place on Saturday, November 14, during Cheltenham’s Open Meeting. The effervescent ‘At The Races’ presenter Luke Harvey, is to host the glittering event.

Heading a star cast of champions and winners from the past season will be Will Biddick, who smashed the British record for victories in one season, taking the previous best of 56 to a new high of 68 wins.

Cornishman Biddick has won the Fuller’s Brewery Leading men’s title for the past four years, while Gina Andrews, will step up to receive the women’s championship for the second time after a four-year gap – her sister, Bridget, now a conditional jockey, was the previous season’s champion.

16 year old, Harry Cobden, now a conditional jockey with champion jumps trainer, Paul Nicholls will receive the Fuller’s Brewery male novice riders’ prize, while Lara Mahon, takes the Fullers Brewery female novices’ award.

Cobden will also receive a share of the Connolly’s RED MILLS champion point-to-pointer award, which goes jointly to his horse Cock of The Rock and to Rosie’s Peacock, owned, trained and bred by David Llewellyn. Both horses won seven times last season. Jack Barber and Rachael Green – who has since become Mrs Anthony Honeyball – will share the Connolly’s-sponsored trainer’s title, while Nick Wright, who is chairman of the Point-to-Point Racing Company, gains the champion owner award.

Other prizes on the night include the Jockey Club Leading Novice Mare award, for which the £500 prize this year goes to Audrey Goodwin the owner of Miss Gotaway. Mickey Bowen, Ciaran Gethings and Claire Hart respectively pick up the Point-to-Point Racing Company-sponsored champion hunter chase trainer and rider honours.

Tickets costing £80 a head are available from the Point-to-Point Authority, so book your seat and be part of a celebration of Britain’s point-to-point champions and a great party.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – TIVERTON STAGHOUNDS POINT-TO-POINT, BRATTON DOWN, 7th JUNE 2015

Website_BD_TS_Money_Talks_Banner

Bookmaker David Phillips has kindly supplied this week's notes:-

A glorious sunny afternoon at The Tiverton Staghounds meeting at Bratton Down in the heart of Exmoor. The opening race, the Members, was an exciting contest where Whenharrymetsally prevailed in a tight finish with Le Clo de la Londe. Well ridden by Liam Drowne, she was backed at 2/1 with Le Clo de la Londe around 11/10.

In the first maiden anyone who backs Will Biddick horses were rewarded when the Nikki Frost trained Stop the Press won very easily having been backed at 8/1.

The second division of the maiden was memorable because it was Alice Mills’ last ride in a point to point before she turns professional. She won with a well timed run on Askers Lad at a very generous 3/1.

The intermediate was won very easily by the Alan Hill trained and Joe Hill ridden Broken Eagle at around 5/1. The heavily backed favourite The Flying Doc had it all to do when falling. He had been backed from 6/4 into evens.

In the Men’s open the betting was mainly divided between the prolific winner Cock of the Rock and the Barber / Biddick duo with Queens Bay. The nine year old mare Queens Bay prevailed at 2/1 after a good battle with the veteran Barneys Mate.

There was an upset in the Ladies’ Open when the 13 year old Ned White having his last race won easily at 5/1.The disappointing favourite It was Me was turned over at 2/5.

In the restricted the easy to back Golanzine passed the post first only to be disqualified for going the wrong side of a marker.The race was awarded to Craigbienn ridden by the champion ladies rider Gina Andrews, a well backed 4/1 shot.

written by Donna Harris

Next weekend will see the final Point-to-Point meeting of the season take place at Chapleton Barton, Umberleigh, where the Torrington Farmers host their meeting as the curtain closer for the season. There are six races on offer with the action starting at 2pm. The Devon & Cornwall area pony racing follows the main races, with the 138cm and under, followed by the 148cm pony race.

With the leading horse title still to be decided, both Cock Of The Rock and Rosies Peacock are entered here in the Davisons Chartered Accountant-sponsored Men’s Open. Each seeking their eighth win of the season, Cock of The Rock for trainer Rachael Green under owner/rider Harry Cobden, was unable to clock up a win at Bratton last weekend. Rosies Peacock’s connections skipped last weekend and could take the title if coming out fresh here for the David Llewellyn team. Harry Cobden has another possible ride with entry Silver Token who is stable mate to Cock Of The Rock. Should Silver Token or any other runner win the race, then the title would be shared between Rosies Peacock and Cock Of The Rock.

The Confined race, sponsored by Devonshire Motors of Barnstaple, heads up the action. This could turn into a dual between Pasternak Jack for the Woollacott team, and the Roy Smith-trained Just Seven. Both horses ran last well last weekend clocking up similar times in their respective races.

Outside raider, Captain Camelot had been well fancied to take the Restricted race at the Trecoed meeting last weekend. He finished second, and could well be the favourite here in the Captain Tim Forester Memorial Restricted race. Trainer Paul Phillips entry Tandori looks a danger having run a good second at Hackwood Park.

Mikey Bowen has entered both Sir Du Bearn and Cygnet in the E.J.Snell & Sons Ltd-sponsored Ladies Open race. Both horses ran last weekend, with Sir Du Bearn winning at Trecoed under Jodie Hughes, and Cygnet running well in the Men’s Open in third. The danger looks to be Awesome George for the Mahon team, who has had time to recover from his second at Garthorpe. Tim Underwood has Carnglave Cat entered and the trainer looks to be chasing Rachael Green for the National Trainer title for yards with seven horses or less. Carnglave Cat is already on a seasons hat-trick, the latest when winning at Peper Harow in Surrey.

Alfie The Great could go well in the Intermediate race, having notched up a quick time at Garthorpe. Green Winter is another to note, having won his Restricted easily at Hereford. The surprise could be Sedgemoor Top Bid for the Tickle team, who could follow-up on his two wins at the Flete Park meetings. This race is sponsored by Claire Howarth of Barum Stud.

Finally those catching the eye in the Smallridge Bros Ltd-sponsored Open Maiden race are Princess Tina, after her second at Lydstep, and Kilcoman Wizard having clocked up seconds at Trebudannon and Cothelstone.

All on course facilities are on offer with bar, hot food, bookies and a host of trade stands, and a super party atmosphere. Entrance to the course is £10 per person, with children under 16 free. Please support the IJF bucket collection at the meeting, which is collecting for young jockey Ed Barrett who was injured at Upcott Cross in April.

The course is located on A377, 5m SE of Barnstaple – EX37 9EB.

Preview: Tiverton Staghounds Point-to-Point Bratton Down, Sunday 7th June 2015

Website_BD_TS_Preview_Banner
Written by: Donna Harris
THE third of three Point-to-Point horse racing fixtures to take place at the stunning Bratton Down track is to be held this Sunday June 7th.
With only two meetings left in the area this season, the opportunity to pack the picnics full of scrumptious delights to party again, whilst watching some excellent thrilling races is a must for all country loving folk. There are six races on offer and over 100 entries received. The first being the Winston Pincombe-sponsored Members race heading up the action at 2pm. Local trainer Kayley Woollacott holds three of the entries with the pick looking to be Le Clo De La Londe, having won a Restricted race earlier in May, then following up with a second at Upcott Cross. The Keith Cumings-trained entry Whenharrymetsally ran well at this course when third last month and could put up another strong challenge.
The Stags Open Maiden race follows, attracting 24 entries all looking to progress before the end of the season. Among those catching the eye are Askers Lad, who had run well when leading until running out at the last fence here at the Dulverton meeting here, could go close. Overland Flyer ran a good two lengths second at Holnicote behind Katie’s Massini, and is from the Jack Barber team, they could add to their current seasons total of an impressive 50 winners so far.
In the Exmoor Hay & Straw Ltd Intermediate race, Fourstar River looks to be the one they all have to catch, having been knocking at the door of an Intermediate win all season including a neck second to Otis Tarda at the earlier May meeting. Broken Eagle is an interesting outside raider for the Alan Hill team, he could follow up on his seconds at Larkhill and Kingston Blount, under jockey Joe Hill. The Flying Doc won here at the last meeting and could progress well, with Credit Crunched who could also come back for more having been unlucky to unseat his rider early on at the last meeting.
Cock Of The Rock is unbeaten in his last seven runs this season, including a Men’s Open at Little Windsor for his jockey Harry Cobden. Harry is currently leading the National Novice male jockey’s title. His main challenger in the Greenslade Taylor Hunt-sponsored Men’s Open race here could be Rosie’s Peacock, another horse on seven wins, with both horses competing for the leading horse title. Queens Bay from the Barber team could be the fly in the ointment with champion jockey Will Biddick aboard and should be feared most.
Outside raiders in the Poltimore Inn, North Molton Ladies Open race come in the way of It Was Me, who under jockey Carey Williamson has won his last five starts, Awesome George is a hurdle and Chase winner who could figure here for jockey Lara Mahon. Ned White for Leanda Tickle and Top Chief under Bryony Frost, could put up a bold show for the area if conditions dry in time.
The Witheridge Garage-sponsored Restricted Race closes the days events, of the 25 entered  both Earthpower and The Greendale Rocket were running well in the void race at Upcott Cross, and Just Seven could follow-up on his win at Vauterhill in May.
For those choosing not to pack their own picnics, the on course facilities include tasty hot refreshments, bar, bookies and a number of trade stands, offering a great family day out. Children under 16 get onto the course free, charges for car & driver are £10, with £10 each passenger up to a maximum of £30. Dogs on leads welcome.
Course is located at Bratton Fleming, 9m NE of Barnstaple on A399, 11m South of South Molton. Postcode EX31 4SG.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – SOUTH TETCOTT POINT-TO-POINT AT UPCOTT CROSS, BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 25th MAY 2015

Website_UC_ST_Money_Talks_Banner

The 14 bookmakers produced a strong betting market at Upcott Cross during an afternoon with some bizarre happenings.

The 14 runner Restricted became the race that never was. 50-1 chance Gleannacreim played up at the start, but the starter appeared to flag the field away. It was not until the race was taking shape with half a mile to run that a yellow flag was deployed to stop the race. A false start was cited. It was a pity that this unfortunate turn of events meant a void race because apart from everybody’s wasted efforts, a good finish was in prospect.

Course winner Brave Encounter had made most of the running, having been gambled on from early 20’s to 5-1 at the “off”. Will Biddick’s mount Earthpower had started favourite (5-2 to 2’s) and was making eye catching progress up the back straight. Myladtommy (25’s to 20’s) and the complete outsider Mongress Boy (200-1) also showed prominently when the order to stop the race was given.

The afternoon had started more positively in the eight-runner Confined when Devon General (3’s to 5-2) and Mausefalle (10-1 touched 12’) dead heated. Third placed King’s Bench (6’s into 4’s) kept on well and had run creditably on his three previous outings this season. He is capable of stepping up on this effort.

Posh Totty was the main fancy in the Men’s Open. One punter’s bet of £200 at 4-5 looked a steal, especially since the she hardened to 1-3 at the off. This time the Jack Barber trained mare found Robin Will (7-2 to 3’s) a bit too hot to handle.

Cock of the Rock, seeking his seventh successive win, opened at 1-2 in the Novice Riders’ (a bet of £2,000 to win £1,000 noted).  16-year-old Harry Cobden has impressed all season and once again timed his challenge to perfection to overcome the tough 6-year-old Le Clo de la Londe who had been backed from 6-1 to 9-2.

Ned White (7-4 fav from 2’s) has been a grand servant to his connections for many years. He jumped superbly for Leanda Tickle to win the Ladies’ Open without too much fuss. Despite showing as a 12-year-old on the race card he is actually a year older than that and retirement beckons for him at the end of the season.

I had begun to think that Baldhu High Tide was not much better than his dam North Coast Girl, who managed only one tailed off completion in her 14 races. Baldhu High Tide, sired by Baldhu Jack (who won two points in his day) had struggled with only one distant completion in his six efforts to date. However this was his day. Fitted with a hood for the first time and putting his eventing experience to good use, Baldhu High Tide had the last laugh and won quite easily in the end under Vicky Wade. He was of course easy to back at long odds (33’s to 25’s), but I saw one clairvoyant punter picking up the tidy sum of £2,000.
