GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – NORTH CORNWALL AT WADEBRIDGE 11 JAN 2015

Website_NCMoney_Talks_Banner

The first three favourites obliged, but this couldn’t last and punters were on the back foot in the next three until Sweet My Lord landed the odds in the last.

At least everybody was able to seek warm shelter in the huge Wadebridge barn and it doesn’t seem so bad losing money in there.

The Novice Riders’ event attracted a field of 11. Working Title looked very fit and had little difficulty in following up his win at this track just before Christmas. He traded at around 5-4 and will probably be back for more here next month.

In the same race, Cock of the Rock was nicely supported from 5-1 to 4’s to give ex-pony racer Harry Cobden a winning ride. He was travelling well on the inner when slipping up on the bottom bend after the eighth fence.

Early skirmishers had 1-2 about Byerley Bear to beat his four opponents in the Ladies’ Open. He was sent off at 2-5 and prevailed in a spirited battle with the useful ex-David Pipe chaser Dan Breen (solid at 5-2). The Bear will no doubt continue on his winning ways, but Dan Breen, who finished 7th in the 2011 Arkle chase at Cheltenham is worth following in his first season’s pointing. As a coincidence, Ghizao, two places ahead of Dan Breen in that Arkle finished third in this race under his novice rider

I thought that the 10 runners in the Restricted looked a really nice bunch in the parade ring. Black Forest winner Railway Benefit was all the rage, eventually starting at 11-10, but lost ground down the hill and never looked like catching the keen going winner Desert Queen (4-1), and the staying on runner up Ballanrahan (8-1). I also made a favourable note of Whispering Wild (easy to back at 10-1) and Old Grange (12-1) who needed the race after a lay off. The time for this race was only one second slower than the Men’s Open.

Ian Chanin deputised for the injured Chester Williams on warm favourite Babeny Bridge (6-4 to 5-4 fav) in the Men’s race. Will Biddick’s mount Minella Fifty was backed from 3’s into 5-2 and the eventual winner Raffa was nibbled at from 6’s into 5-1. Raffa was again given a positive ride by John Mathias to score for the third time this season. This small eight-year-old must have a big heart because he ran on like a tiger up the finishing hill after the favourite had sprawled badly on landing at the penultimate fence. Hameldown Tor looked in trouble at half way but did his best work near the finish to chase home the winner and would benefit from a stiffer track.

They went 3-1 the field in the first Maiden with Follow The Paint the market choice. This five-year-old was in front for a long way but is not yet the most fluent of jumpers and was left behind from the bottom bend by the Jamie Thomas ridden winner Le Clo De La Londe (6’s to 5’s).

11 of the 13 runners finished in the other Maiden but they were pretty well strung out behind long time leader Sonoftheking who was easy to back at 7-1. The favourite Sisterbrooke (2-1 to 7-4) chased the winner home, with third placed Spendajennie (4-1) looking a likely improver.

All credit to one of our bookmakers, Mike Smith ( pseudonym Hunton), who offered a £20 future free bet in a competition on the Jumping For Fun web site to pick the North Cornwall winners.
No, I didn’t win………

REPORT ON THE NORTH CORNWALL POINT-TO-POINT AT THE ROYAL CORNWALL SHOWGROUND, WADEBRIDGE, SUNDAY 11TH JANUARY 2015

Website_NCReport_Banner

DESPITE a biting wind whipping across the showground, the North Cornwall attracted plenty of support from a decent crowd and race cards sold out.

Robert Chanin introduced a useful recruit to English pointing in the shape of nine-year-old Sweet My Lord who took the Confined under Tom Chanin.

Robert said, “We looked for a horse all summer and got this horse through an Irish agent out of Willie Mullins’ yard. He was bought unseen and came to us in July. Plenty of other English trainers were interested but we did the deal and he is now owned by Tony and Eileen Worth. He is Tony’s first horse and we think a lot of him.”

I am not surprised because he scored five times over jumps in Ireland and was rated 134 after his last run at Cork shortly before he was bought. He looks a natural for sub- 3 miles hunter chases.

Sweet My Lord was completing a double for the Thorverton, Devon trainer initiated by Wadebridge specialist Byerley Bear in the Ladies’ Open. Despite losing her whip at the first fence, Leanda Tickle managed to fight off the spirited challenge of Jo Buck on the formerly useful chaser Dan Breen who chased the winner all the way up the finishing  straight.

Owned by Roger Knowles, the big chestnut Byerley Bear is virtually unbeatable on the showground where he was scoring for the seventh time. “He is entered for the Silverton at Black Forest next Sunday,” reported the owner.

It was also a case of horses for courses for Raffa, who had won his Intermediate at this track last month and successfully upgraded to Open status under regular pilot John Mathias. This tough little gelding looked to have the measure of the favourite Babeny Bridge when the latter almost slithered to the ground at the penultimate, and then readily held the staying on Hameldown Tor on the gruelling climb to the judge.

A very consistent home bred gelding by Milan, the eight-year-old is trained at Pontispool, Norton Fitzwarren by Richard (Ces)  Mitford-Slade, who owns him jointly with Lucy Fielding-Johnson. “He was as fat as a barrel when he came in from summer grass on 9th August last year. Apart from going round the farm we take him to various places including the gallops at Spaxton, West Buckland and to Washford. I am a bit big to ride him and Katy Bellamy does a lot of the work,” commented the trainer.

Hameldown Tor’s half sister Desert Queen also obviously relishes Wadebridge and followed up her recent Maiden win there by beating nine opponents in the Restricted.  “She was a bit keen over the first two so I just let her bowl along,” said winning jockey Michael Legg. This could be an under statement because the seven-year-old mare from the Dubacilla family was always firmly in command and never looked like being caught. Although she is for sale, Cricket St Thomas trainer Ben Clarke, assistant trainer to Anthony Honeyball, nominated possible targets including a Warwick mares bumper or a mares hurdle.

Joe Drinkwater rode his fifth career winner when Working Title, who again looked outstanding in the parade ring,  made all the running in the Novice Riders’ event. “He has now won three times here and could come back next month,” said Joe Drinkwater who trains the gelding.

Popular local farrier Ryan Chapman partnered his first winner on Benny’s Quest in the hunt race. Bought privately out of Neil Mulholland’s yard, the winner was more of a two miles horse under rules. “We  hoped he would stay. He is a cracking hunter,” said Ryan’s father Reuben who has five pointers in their yard at St Columb Major.

Now 30 years old, Ryan first rode in points at 16. “I got too big and with the farrier job and had a long break from race riding until a couple of years ago,” explained the tall Cornishman.

Le Clo De La Londe was an easy winner of the first Maiden under Jamie Thomas. “He was bought via agent JD Moore at the Aquana sales in France in July and shown as for sale at our open day. He is now owned by John and Sonia Gardener and jumps awesome,” exclaimed trainer Kayley Woollacott.

The other Maiden division went to the King’s Theatre seven-year-old Sonoftheking who was driven clear on the flat by Darren Edwards to beat the favourite Sisterbrooke, “I thought he needed the race,” reported trainer Nicky Martin. “We got him from Philip Hobbs where he was placed over hurdles but he had a twisted gut and couldn’t run last year. He might go back under rules,” added Nicky.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – 2014 CORNWALL HUNT CLUB

Website_Money_Talks_Banner

The bookies were cosily entrenched in the barn which also housed a Christmas gift fair.  Festive generosity seemed to be taken up by the books with punters cashing in on well fancied horses in the first five races. But this couldn’t last and outsiders redressed the balance for the layers sacks in the last two races.

  • Working Title was the paddock pick in the Novice Riders event. Obviously benefiting from a run at Black Forest, this course winner was backed from 7-4 to 6-4 favourite and won easily under Joe Drinkwater
  • Whenharrymetsally also started 6 -4 favourite when upgraded to Open status. This ever improving mare slipped up on the bottom bend. My initial impression was that she looked well held at the time, but jockey Matt Hampton held a more positive outlook, telling me that she had plenty left in the tank.
  • Ex- French four-year-old Beuvron was having his first run in English points. The booking of Jo Buck looked interesting in the Ladies’. He was sent off at 100-30 but never looked like troubling front running Byerley Bear (4-6 to 4-7). There will be another day for Beuvron who seemed in need of the race.
  • Raffa (evens to 4-5) was made to work hard to repel Supreme Danehill (5-2 to 9-4) in the Intermediate. The runner up had been noted in this column at Black Forest and remains of interest
  • All 13 entries went to post for the first Maiden where Follow The Paint was all the rage (5-2 to 5-4). Unfortunately for his supporters his saddle slipped on the downhill run after the seventh fence. 40-1 outsider Wilde At Heart ran a terrific race under her novice rider Chelsea Jennings only to be denied by a resurgent Desert Queen (12’s to 10’s).
  • Sisterbrooke caught my eye both in the paddock and in the race in the other Maiden division – although visibility was limited in the wind and rain, even from my vantage point on Jeff’s camera tower. Five-year-old Sisterbrooke, nibbled at from 16’s to 12’s, is in a good yard and showed plenty of promise on her pointing debut. She looks a certain Maiden winner at least.

REPORT: CORNWALL HUNT CLUB POINT-TO-POINT AT WADEBRIDGE SUNDAY 14TH DECEMBER 2014

Website_Report_Banner

COURSE specialist Byerley Bear dominated the Ladies’ Open under Leanda Tickle. The nine-year-old had mopped up all three Ladies’ races run on the Royal Cornwall Showground last season and again showed his liking for the track with another emphatic victory.

Chloe Roddick’s mount Rebel Du Maquis threatened briefly on the bottom bend, but 4-7 favourite Byerley Bear strode clear of the ex-Paul Nicholls chaser up the final hill. The winner’s trainer Robert Chanin said, “He is stronger than ever this year and has enjoyed his hunting. There are no firm plans but he may go for a hunter chase at Taunton in January.”  Leanda Tickle was equally enthusiastic. “He was at his best and switched on when challenged,” reported Leanda who rides out for Victor Dartnall as well as Robert Chanin and Leslie Jefford.

Double Bank is one of the most genuine pointers in the west country and kept up a relentless gallop to defy a penalty in the Men’s Open at the expense of Kirkleigh and Champagne Rosie. “He jumped his way into the lead and I let him bowl on,” explained regular rider Merv Woodward. The winner is trained for owner Jonathan Cole by Emma Oliver at Teign Valley. “Double Bank has won over trips from two miles 5 furlongs to three and a quarter miles and all types of ground,” explained Emma, who also has an eye on the Taunton hunter chase next month.

“The finishing hill here is like Cheltenham,” quipped John Mathias who came from Wales for one ride. This was the game Raffa who duly followed up his recent Black Forest win with a hard fought success over Supreme Danehill in the Intermediate. Joint owner Lucy Fielding-Johnson said of her home bred seven-year-old, “He loves going up hills but is a bit small and may struggle in Opens”.

It was a good training performance from Spaxton based Teresa Clarke to send out Takamaru to win the Restricted. The eight-year-old had been off the course for 18 months but stripped fit and well to defy the favourite Theatre Goer and Ratline Rosie. Takamaru was bought for the Four 4 Fun Partnership last summer from Ashley Farrant, and spokesman Phil Browne commented, “The partnership was formed over a few drinks at the Blue Ball pub in Triscombe near Taunton and I think there is more to come from this horse.” Successful jockey, 19-year-old  David Noonan hails from Kilbrin, County Cork, and works for David Pipe. “This is my fifth winner and I still qualify as a novice rider,” said the jockey.

The novice rider race on this card went to Working Title, who was a fourth winner for 18-year-old Joe Drinkwater. who works for Tom Lacey. The same horse had provided Joe with his first winner in the corresponding race last season. “He will come back here for an Open in January,” said the jockey’s brother Sam who trains the family owned 12-year-old.

Persistent drizzle descended into gloom for the closing Maiden events which attracted fields of 13 and 12 respectively. Rookie trainer Ben Clarke saddled his first winner with only his second runner when Desert Queen won the first Maiden division. A grand daughter of Dubacilla, Desert Queen pulled hard under Michael Legg but had enough in hand to repel the game effort of Wilde At Heart.

The unlucky departure of Westbrooke at the third last left five-year-old The Sweetener ( Jamie Thomas) clear in the closing Maiden where runner up Sisterbrooke caught the eye. Kayley Woollacott saddled the winner, who is from the family of Grand National winner Comply or Die, for owners Paul Govier and Geoffrey Brown. “Jamie has done a fantastic job with him. He had disappointed for Richard (Woollacott) under rules but has had a wind operation,” stated the Rose Ash trainer.
