Report: Exmoor Point-To-Point, Bratton Down, Sunday 1st June

POINT-TO-POINTING was seen at its best at Bratton Down on Sunday with good ground, quite favourable Exmoor weather, a total of 83 runners and some exciting finishes.

The reigning Devon & Cornwall champion jockey Josh Guerriero will be handing over his title this year, but his new job as assistant trainer to Midlands based Dan Skelton has meant fewer opportunities in the saddle this time

25–year-old Josh showed that he had lost none of his dash with a treble in the first three races. Bernshaw set the ball rolling with a repeat of last year’s win in the Hunt race. Trained locally at Stoke Rivers for her parents Mike and Mella, the blinkered Bernshaw made virtually all the running. “He had not really been firing recently. He can be lazy and a bit artful and had to work hard for this,” commented the trainer

The Restricted had to be divided on the day. Fourstar River was well backed in the first section and came from off the pace to sweep past his rivals on the brow of the hill. “I have been trying to win a race here since 1975 and had several near misses,” said the winner’s owner/trainer Stewart Reddaway, who confessed to having a big bet on his nine-year-old. “He is a high class horse but not easy to train. Charlotte Rowe does a lot of the work and we have to look after his joints and his back,” he added.

Josh Guerriero produced another fine ride to lift the other division with The Mexican Bandit. Once again there was a blanket finish with The Mexican Bandit grimly holding off a five strong posse charging up the hill. “We have only had him for six weeks and he was a 70th birthday present for his owner Diana Scott. He was originally with Ollie Greenall and he came to us via Josh Guerriero and Ed Glassonbury,” said trainer Keith Cumings.

Open races often attract small fields at this time of the season, but they were well filled here. Join Together has been a classy recruit to pointing this year and the former Paul Nicholls chaser took his unbeaten record to six in the space of just 12 weeks when outclassing his 11 opponents in the Ladies’ Open.

Rose Loxton now trains this tough gelding, who has kept his 16-year-old rider Megan Nicholls in pole position for the National Novice Riders’ title. Leanda Tickle set a good pace on the bold jumping Ned White, but had no answer to the winner’s finishing burst. “My instructions were to follow the pace and be patient,” explained the winning rider, who was partnering her 16th winner of the season and could find herself with some good hunter chase rides next year. “Join Together is the sort who could go for the Foxhunter at Cheltenham.” was the long term thought expressed by proud father Paul Nicholls.

Round Tom has been successful in the hunter chase field in the past and the Richard Barber trained gelding started favourite in the 14-runner Men’s Open under Will Biddick. This time the nine-year-old could not quite cope with the wonderful veteran Coombe Hill who stayed on strongly in the hands of Darren Edwards. “He did not run well at Newton Abbot recently and we were thinking of retiring him after this race, but might have second thoughts now,” mused trainer Charlotte Fear (nee Tizzard) who handles the 13-year-old for owner Geoff Thompson.

Fancied horses put the punters in a good mood on Sunday, but Glenwood Present proved a lively outsider when chalked up at 16’s and 20’s before landing the 12-runner Intermediate under Josh Newman. “He had been gurgling and has got his confidence back now with the tongue tie and better ground”, said Nick Taylor, whose wife Tanya trains the sturdy ex-Bob Buckler gelding at Woolminstone for owner Nick Elliott. Glenwood Present was described by his trainer as “Such a sweetie in the yard – we can even lead our daughter’s pony off him.”

O’Flo had run really well at Bratton two weeks ago and the five-year-old grey stepped up to win the first division of the Open Maiden when outstaying the clumsy jumping Crackacan and Grey Dream to give Bryony Frost her 11th winner of the season. “That was a lovely run and she can go into the field now for the summer. Her dam O’Ech won here 10 years ago,” said the winner’s owner/trainer Carol Lawrence who bred her winner from the Vauterhill stallion With The Flow.

Whataknight won the concluding Maiden in good style to give Will Biddick his 36th winner of the season and put him well within sight of his third successive National jockeys’ title. “He was a bit green but jumped well and found a gear or two up the hill,” reported Biddick. Richard Barber saddled the winner for owners Terry Hamlin, Martin Dare and John Snook. “He was a late foal and has come on a lot in the last few weeks,” said the Seaborough, Dorset trainer. West Country pointing enthusiasts will recall Whataknight’s dam What A Mover, who won several points, and by co-incidence had won on the same Bratton Down card as O’Flo’s dam ten years ago.

MONEY TALKS

PUNTERS 6: BOOKIES 2

Not exactly a blood bath for the layers, but punters certainly had the best of the exchanges with six of the eight favourites or joint favourites obliging.

FOURSTAR RIVER was snapped up at early 4’s in the first Restricted before settling at 2-1 favourite. The lightly raced gelding had delivered the goods only once before at Lower Machen last year, and was played late by Josh Guerriero to land a nicely planned gamble here.

The booking of Gina Andrews may have contributed to ASHTON MAGIC contracting from 14-1 into 10-1 in the same race. The seven-year-old almost fell when leading at the 10th fence and eventually finished last of the nine runners

COOMBE HILL was a worthy winner of the Men’s Open. This veteran pointer had won a hunter chase at Wincanton earlier this season but seemed to be on the downgrade when well beaten at Newton Abbot last month. He gained friends here at 7-2 and 3-1 and gamely overcame the 6-4 favourite ROUND TOM .

GLENWOOD PRESENT ‘S recent Holnicote win seemed to be overlooked as the sturdy gelding was easy to back at 20-1 and 16-1 in a competitive Intermediate. Josh Newman worked his mount into the lead before the final bend before brushing aside his challengers up the final climb.

The bookies were lying in wait in each division of the concluding Maidens. The bonny grey mare O’FLO (2’s to 7-4) shared favouritism with CRACKACAN, who was cut from 5-2 into 7-4. They finished first and second in that order.

The dogs had evidently been barking before the Richard Barber five-year-old WHATAKNIGHT teamed up with champion Will Biddick in the last event. No chances were taken by the layers and just scraps of 6-4 and 7-4 were offered. Once again the chaps with the satchels were proved right and this promising youngster did his job in taking fashion.

Preview: Tiverton Foxhounds – Chipley Park, Tiverton Sunday January 19

A Bumper entry of over 170 horses have been received for this weekends Point to Point meeting at Chipley Park, Tiverton, Sunday 19th January. With the Restricted race having already been divided, the organizers have gone for an earlier start time of 11.30am, to pack in what promises to be an action packed day.

Stags sponsor the Hunt Members race which heads up the action, For The Staff is now with the inform Robert Chanin yard, having previously won the Mixed Open here in 2012, that day making virtually all coming home three lengths ahead of Ned The Post, he should enjoy the ground and looks the one to beat, having only been denied once in three Point outings, and the trainer is firing out plenty of winners. The Mary Sanderson-trained Blinding Lights could also feature being a previous course winner here, and was only denied a second course win when beaten a neck by Turthen in this race last year.

Un Ami is a major contender in the first division of the Restricted race. Having won his Maiden at Larkhill for young jockey Chester Williams the partnership must be respected. The Chloe Roddick-trained rangy built Romassor should find this course more to his liking than the tighter corners at Wadebridge where he won his Maiden in December. He is an improving sort and is justifying his 38.000 euro price tag out of Fairyhouse, and surely one to follow.

The second division of the Restricted could see the Welsh raider/trainer David Brace take the spoils back to Wales with Dbobe, but the horse is far from a straight forward ride, having dumped his jockey Bradley Gibbs twice. Another entry, Glenwood Present from the Tanya Taylor team looks to be a safer bet, having only been headed in the final 50 yards at Wadebridge in December, finishing a length third to winner Lightening Jack.

Family of the late John Pearcey & Matford Landrover sponsor the Mixed Open, in which Cheltenham bound Kirkleigh, could start his seasons campaign for owner Sue Trump. Kirkleigh finished last seasons Pointing with a win at Little Windsor in a Men’s Open a neck ahead of Bellsinni Ron. Special Occasion out of the Sarah Gould yard could be a challenger here after his second last season at the course, prefers a right-handed track and five Open wins to his credit including getting the better of Certain Flight (also entered) by a neck at Kingston St Mary.

Of the 26 entered in the Exeter Racecourse sponsored Intermediate, Credit Crunched impressed at Black Forest Lodge when coming home 12 lengths ahead of the field at Black Forest Lodge in December, Theatre Queen was sent off odds- on favourite at Wadebridge and had punters counting their winnings before being headed two out, finishing third behind Champagne Rosie and Sobre Tresor. This could go to one of the Welsh raiders Waddington Hero from the Lee Power yard, a dual Irish Point winner finished second behind Tachbury at Black Forest Lodge when well fancied, and looks sure to take an Intermediate home soon.

In the Dodson & Horrell PPORA Club Members Race Barneys Mate trained by Richard Barber has 21 wins to his credit, and although now 14 years of age is a true schoolmaster, this season could see Barber’s grandson Christopher get the leg up. Working Title for the Drinkwater family obliged at Wadebridge winning the Novice Riders race by 15-lengths for young Joe Drinkwater, and followed that up with a third behind Googoobarabajagal in a Mens Open.

The Fillies and Mares race is sponsored by The Hartnell Hotel, Bolham and The Thoroughbred Breeders Association.The prolific winning mare Lucette Annie could start her seasons campaign, and would look sure to go favourite with ten wins to her credit including seven Opens, including the £1000 winners only race at Buckfastleigh for owner Janet Humphrey.

In the first division of the Open Maiden, sponsored by The Mount Pleasant Inn, Normansland, a suggestion would be The Drinkmeister who ran well under Sam Drinkwater, finishing two lengths second behind Mr McGregor on heavy ground at Chaddesley Corbett in December.

Friends of the Late Robin Barwell sponsor the second division of the Open Maiden in which Go On Henry under jockey Josh Guerriero and out of the Keith Cumings yard could follow up on his second to Flan The Man at Larkhill earlier this month.

The course offers excellent viewing, bar, bookies, hot refreshments and numerous trade stands.

Entrance is £20 per car, £10 car and single occupant.

NORTH CORNWALL, WADEBRIDGE, 5TH JANUARY 2014 REPORT

REPORT ON THE NORTH CORNWALL  POINT-TO-POINT AT THE ROYAL CORNWALL SHOWGROUND, WADEBRIDGE, SUNDAY 5TH JANUARY 2014

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

The going was soft with heavy patches on the showground and the driving rain and gusty wind refused to relent throughout the afternoon. The huge barn proved to be a haven for rain soaked spectators able to cuddle up with just a handful of bookies.

It proved to be a memorable afternoon for two young jockeys riding their first winners.

.MEMBERS (Moores St Wenn Ltd)

Joaaci found conditions to his liking when just denying last year’s winner Buzz Me In by a short head, giving his rider David Noonan his first success. Despite idling a little after taking command, 14-year-old Joaaci had his wise old head in front where it mattered. Ryan Chapman gave Buzz Me In a most heroic ride and his willing partner deserves consolation.

“We couldn’t find anywhere to school Joaaci because of the wet ground and this is the first time David has sat on him,” said Looe trainer Pat Shaw. The 18-year-old jockey, from Kilbrin, CountyCork, was having his first ride in England after four unsuccessful forays in his native country. “I rode for Eugene O’Sullivan in Ireland and have been with David Pipe since August. I have had a lot of support and advice in the yard, particularly from Gerry Supple,” reported the rider.

PPORA NOVICE RIDERS’ (Hop Oils Ltd)

The young Irishman almost followed up on Ross Oliver’s Fiulin who started 7-4 favourite. Despite taking up the running by-passing the waterlogged 15th fence, Fiulin was soon found wanting in the soft ground and faded to finish third. This event went to the improving Sobre Tresor who survived a blunder at the last to give Taylor Pook her first win on her first ride. “That was a remarkable effort by the jockey considering her lack of experience,” exclaimed Chloe Newman, who trains the winner on behalf of her mother Ros at Woolminstone near Crewkerne.

The 21-year-old rider, who works for Alan King at BarburyCastle, almost missed the ride having been kicked in the face by a horse at the stables last Friday. “I have got a black eye (which I naively thought was eye shadow) and the stitches glued above my eye came undone during the race,” the young rider told me. She had presented herself to the doctor as a precaution before the race and was intending to visit the local hospital en route home for running repairs.

RESTRICTED (Ray Davies Foods Ltd)

Kayley Woollacott saddled Lightening Jack to win the Restricted and followed up when Ratline Rosie won the Maiden to give 22-year- old Jamie Thomas, who works in the Woollacott yard, his first ever double.

20-1 outsider Lightening Jack just prevailed in a blanket finish to the seven-runner Restricted, just denying the heavily backed Brackenwood and long time leader Glenwood Present. “He was not quite right when he ran at Black Forest Lodge but he is going a lot better now,” commented the trainer who saddled the Bach gelding for John Pearn who acted as a steward at the meeting. “This is my first winner in Cornwall. I bought Lightening Jack from Rob Skinner and he had done lots of hunting, including a day ridden by Paul Carberry,” remarked the popular owner.

 OPEN MAIDEN (Stephens Scown Solicitors)

Jamie Thomas just got Lady Earle’s six-year-old mare Ratline Rosie home to complete the double. Tiger Wild had made a sluggish start, but Conor Smith worked his mount through the field to lead on the bottom bend, only to be mugged by Ratline Rosie in the last stride .“I got her for only £800 as a two-year-old at Doncaster and Jamie gave her a great ride,” remarked the owner.

MEN’S OPEN (Kivells)

Only five went to post but it was quite a competitive affair. The former Paul Nicholls trained Valentine Vic took the eye in the paddock and looked the likely winner jumping the last in company with 11-10 favourite Working Title and Googoobarabajagal. It was Michael Heard’s mountGoogoobarabajagal who produced the most determined effort on the gruelling climb to the post, coming between his two rivals to score by half a length over Valentine Vic, with Working Title a similar distance away in third. “The horses are going through the ground okay and my horse stays forever,” said the rider. The winner, said by his trainer John Heard to, “pull out a bit stiff in the mornings,” (a problem I am quite familiar with) loves Wadebridge, and was adding to his two victories at the track last season.

LADIES’ OPEN (Cornish Mutual)

Byerley Bear had little trouble in beating his sole rival Hilda Wild under Jo Buck in the Ladies’ Open. Trained by Robert Chanin for Roger Knowles, this nine-year-old is now unbeaten in four runs at the showground and now has hunter chasing on his agenda.

CONFINED (Three Cornish Farriers)

The bright yellow silks carried by Michael Legg on Iron Chancellor showed up well in the gathering gloom. Starting at 4-7 this former ‘chase winner came home untroubled to win by a distance. The Alderbrook gelding was bought at Doncaster last May for £5,800 and can make his mark in hunter chases. “He is not over big and I thought he was the least fit of my five horses,” laughed West Buckland trainer Sue Popham.
