GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – STEVENSTONE POINT-TO-POINT, VAUTERHILL 4TH MAY 2015

Website_SV_Money_Talks_Banner

Comments for the Bank Holiday Monday meeting have been kindly supplied by bookmaker David Phillips

The Members’ was won by Just Seven touched 4/6, well backed into 1/2.

An excellent Restricted won by Peterbrown, opened 2/1 drifted before being backed at 7/2
.
The Mixed Open betting was mainly between the eventual winner Parkam Jack 4/6 into 1/2 and Welstonedruid laid by myself heavily at 2/1 into 6/4, nothing for the other runners.

It’s All or Nothing won a good race for the Confined at around 4/6 with Swansbrook backed at 9/4.

The three runner intermediate attracted money for all three: King Kash was around 5/4 and good money for the winner Pasternak Jack at 2/1.There was a large amount of money on Hallo Dolly from 7/2 into 11/4. The mare ran a promising race in second on her first run for over 12 months.

In a very open Maiden race Astral Star was heavily backed at 8/1 into 5/2.The winner, The Persuader, was very well backed at 6/1 into 3/1.

The Mares Maiden was won by Triggywinkle at a mainly unpacked 14/1, a relief for the layers as other results had gone against them. This race saw the Tim Whitley owned and Les Jefford trained Queens Law drift from evens out to 3/1, which was not surprising as the horse ran a shocker and never gave her supporters a chance.

REPORT: STEVENSTONE POINT-TO-POINT AT VAUTERHILL, HIGH BICKINGTON, BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 4TH MAY 2015

Website_SV_Report_Banner
WRITTEN BY DONNA HARRIS

A good crowd were treated to some exciting finishes at the Stevenstone Point-to-Point meeting at Vauterhill on Bank Holiday Monday where the heavy rain stayed away until after the last race.
The open ditch was omitted throughout the afternoon, resulting in some very quick times.

Some new training faces were seen in the area, with trainer Rod Chelton’s Triggywinkle scoring under Leanda Tickle, in the Jockey Club’s Mares Maiden Race. Now based at North Petherton in Somerset the delighted trainer stated “She is a mare we bred in France before we moved back to England, and now the only one I have in training, and I am helped by Ruth Tilsley-Baker.”

Just Seven provided favourite backers with a win in the opening members race. Under jockey Vicky Wade, Just Seven made virtually all to win by ten lengths. Owner/trainer Roy Smith bought the horse in Ireland four years ago. “He had a good run, he is a big horse and has just come into himself, it is a family affair and I ride him out daily.” stated the trainer.

The Restricted race was won with a fine tactical ride by promising jockey Jake Bament on Peterbrown, Templestatefloresco and Templeton threw down challenges at the second last but Bament switched Peterbrown to the inside and held on to win by a neck in a thrilling finish. Trained by Karyn Heard who was delighted with his run, she stated that “Peterbrown found the ground at Upcott Cross too soft for him, he is young and progressive.” Owner Sally White was delighted ” It is magic when you have a winner, his second this season.”

Parkam Jack gave trainer Kayley Woollacott her 21st winner of the season, when taking the Mixed Open. The winner travelled well, coming home ten lengths ahead of Welstonedruid. Jockey Jamie Thomas, having just ridden his 17th winner of the season quoted “I turned down the back straight and just gave him a squeeze and he took off. It is my best season ever.”

David Noonan on It's All Or Nothing and Leanda Tickle on Swansbrook race into the finishing straight.

Four lined up for the Confined race, in which odds on favourite It’s All Or Nothing demonstrated a good style of jumping to fend off his main challenger Swansbrook to the delight of his owner Rob White. Trained by Charlotte Rowe who stated, “He just gets better and better, and is so easy to do at home.” The champagne corks are bound to be popping at The Blacksmiths Arms, owned by Rob White, who stated “I am looking forward to It’s All Or Nothing’s Restricted entry at Stratford which he qualified for previously, we will see how he comes out of this race first.”

The Woollacott team saddled two of the three runners contesting the Intermediate race, with King Kash heading out the odds on favourite under Jamie Thomas. However it was young Heidi Lewis who set the pace in front on Pasternak Jack, coming home five lengths ahead of the late challenging Hallo Dolly, with King Kash three lengths back in third. Trainer Kayley Woollacott gave all credit to Heidi, “She works full time for us, and puts in over and above working 24/7 on her days off too, showing real dedication.”

David Noonan rode a patient ride in the nine runner Open Maiden race, steering home The Persuader to get up to win by five lengths from Thirtyfirst Dansar. Trainer Caroline Prouse was delighted with her first winner in her own colours. “David gave him a peach of a ride, and made up so much ground. We bought him from Doncaster two years ago, he is a big backward sort, but showed lots of promise last year at Bratton.”

PREVIEW: STEVENSTONE POINT-TO-POINT AT VAUTERHILL ON BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY, 4th MAY 2015

Website_SV_Preview_BannerWritten by: Donna Harris

The Stevenstone meeting at Vauterhill, High Bickington, offers a great way to enjoy the scenic countryside on Bank Holiday Monday May 4th. This fixture now has seven races on offer which start with the Lomas family-sponsored Members race at 2pm, which is in memory of Major Jack & Mrs Margaret Lomas. Entries include Just Seven from the Roy Smith yard, looking to follow up on their five lengths second at Littlewindsor. Ahh Bless, trained by Carol Lawrence is another to consider, having been in the frame on two of his outings this season when third at Buckfastleigh and Great Trethew.

Davisons Chartered Accountants-sponsored Restricted race looks very competitive, two of the recent Sarah Prouse-trained winners are entered, Beetle Jack and Cracking Habit both won their maiden races at Upcott Cross, with Cracking Habit clocking up a quick time under jockey Darren Edwards. Templeton from Kayley Woollacotts team ran a good one length second in a 16 runner Restricted at Kilworthy, and Gleannacreim for Charlotte Hawker conections is another to have run well in Restricted company.

In the Holiday Cottages-sponsored Mixed open, Steeltown, another from the Woollacott team, has already has his nose in front this season, winning his race by 22 lengths at Cotley. Welstonedruid is another who could run well after his break since winning at Great Trethew in March.

Jepeck is currently on four wins out of six starts, his latest win came at Upcott Cross, he should run well here in the Kivells-sponsored Confined race. Minella Web, also from the Woollacott team took his Intermediate race at Kilworthy in March in a notably quick time and could be the bookies favourite.

In the Wades-sponsored Intermediate race, Hallo Dolly is an interesting entry, having been off the track for two years, she was in the frame on all six of her starts up until then, including two wins at Trebudannon. Both King Kash after his second to Diamond Brook at Cherrybrook, and Pasternak Jack after his recent Flete Park win under jockey Heidi Lewis could head the field.

Suggestions in the Brewer Harding & Rowe-sponsored Open Maiden race are Whatastormnorm after his notable second and third at the Great Trethew meetings, also entry High Priority from the Keith Cumings team, having scored a four-length second behind Applesolutely at Flete Park.

The final race of the day, is the Jockey Club Mares Maiden race, which is being run in memory of Jane Wickett. Reuben Chapman’s horses have been running well this season, and this race could see Onwegoagain follow up on his recent second to Annwyl at Upcott Cross.

On course facilities are hot refreshments, bar, bookies and trade stands.

The course is located at High Bickington (signed from A377,A3124 & B3217) Post code EX37 9BT. Entrance is £10 car & driver, £20 car driver and passenger, £30 per car load, under sixteens go free.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – SPOONERS & WEST DARTMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT CHERRYBROOK SATURDAY 4TH APRIL 2015

Website_SWD_Money_Talks_Banner

What a difference a week makes ! From the wild Cornish weather at Great Trethew on the last Sunday of March to the sun and warmth of Cherrybrook and Trebudannon just a week later.

A never ending queue down the lane meant that vehicles were still entering the course at Cherrybrook after the second race on Saturday. The meeting saw five winning favourites out of six which would normally drain the bookies satchels. The holiday crowd however tend to go for longer prices instead of odds-on favourites with their pound bets, so little overall damage would have been done to the books.

Dicky Bob was the nearest thing to a certainty in the Hunt race (1-3 touched 2-5) but nearly came down at the first. Luckily Jo Buck gathered him up and he went on to complete a five-timer for the season.

I was going to back It’s All Or Nothing (2’s –9-4) in the Restricted after he had run so well at the Lamerton, but Molly Oscar (2’s to 13-8) looked very fit in the parade ring so I left it alone. The inevitable happened: Molly Oscar slipped up with a mile to go and It’s All Or Nothing went on to win easily – another lesson learned the hard way.

Lucette Annie (4-5 to 4-6) is in tremendous form at present and set up her seasonal hat trick in the Mixed Open after sparring for two miles with Double Bank, who was easy to back at 6-4 and 11-8 after opening odds-on. The mare’s relentless stamina eventually kicked in and she had the race in safe keeping when Double Bank scrambled over the penultimate and was pulled up.

Diamond Brook (6-4 fav) confirmed his Lamerton form with runner-up King Kash (11-4 to 9-4) to win the Confined and Flood Tide (7-4 fav) produced the only clear round of the seven runners to take the concluding Maiden.

REPORT ON THE SPOONERS & WEST DARTMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT CHERRYBROOK SATURDAY 4TH APRIL 2015

Website_SWD_Report_Banner
WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

DARREN EDWARDS looks set to capture his first Devon & Cornwall jockeys’ title this year and moved on to the 15 winner mark for the season thanks to a double at Cherrybrook before a massive crowd.

Edwards won the Mixed Open on the consistent Lucette Annie who was achieving her seasonal hat trick. The mare revels in soft ground “She is ground dependant and will run next wherever it is soft enough. She is still scheduled to be covered by Black Sam Bellamy afterwards,” said Simon Partridge, who handles her on behalf of owners Clare West and Janet Humphrey.

Dean Summersby’s Flood Tide, completed the jockey’s double in the Open Maiden. Alice Mills, hotfoot from riding her shock 80-1 winner at Newton Abbot, was chasing Flood Tide when her mount Angonaminute refused at the last fence.

Alice somersaulted over the obstacle minus her horse and the ups and downs of jumping were also well illustrated when Darren Edwards took a crashing fall from According To Harry in the Restricted won by Miss Gotaway. Horse and rider were unscathed as the winner strolled home to complete her third successive victory of the season. “She is so genuine and tough,” exclaimed winning trainer Kayley Woollacott, saddling her 14th winner of the season.

The Emma Loosemore trained Diamond Brook (Leanda Tickle) gained reward for consistency when just overhauling the Woollacott runner King Kash to win the Confined, and It’s All Or Nothing stayed on strongly when taking the eight-runner Restricted. David Noonan was partnering his fourth winner of the season on this progressive grey for owner Rob White and trainer Charlotte Rowe.

Dicky Bob rounded off his season with an easy win in the Members’ under Jo Buck. “He has done enough winning five out of six and won’t run again this season,” reported owner/trainer Verity Nicholls.
