The popular local grey Dicky Bob has been entered in the opening Condy Mathias-sponsored Members race. He took this race last season here as a walkover and then went on to win the Mixed Open. Trainer Verity Nicholls has only entered him in this race here with his challengers all holding entries later in the day. Recent Kilworthy winner Ballyvodock is an eye catching new recruit for the Gordon Chambers yard, and could be the one to tackle Dicky Bob here. It’s All Or Nothing is already a three times course winner here but connections may choose the later Confined race, whilst entry Clondaw Bunny was held in second at Kilworthy to Ballyvodock, and could be another to bypass this race for the Confined.

Every Breakin Wave another out of the Claire Hitch yard, is the highest rated in the Cherrybrook Chance Conditions race  having won three races in 2017, but needs to re-kindle that form. Kernal Victor is another to stand out in the conditions race having clocked up some decent form including three Men’s Open races in 2017, trainer Ed Walker could get some improvement on his recent place form.

Trainer Heidi Lewis has four entries in the opening Pannell Commercials-sponsored Members race, Belharbour Two won last weekend at Buckfastleigh, so may bypass this meeting. Acadian is another of the Lewis team entries who would be a short price here with the bookies, having won well at Wadebridge. They may have to tackle Cloudy Music from the Summersby yard, also a winner last weekend, should go close if turning up for a quick fire double under jockey Darren Edwards, who has just clocked up his 250th winner.

The feature race of the day is the Condy Mathias Mixed Open which is a qualifier for finals at both Cheltenham and Stratford in May. Local trainer Dean Summersby has entered Chosen Lucky, a winner of 11 out of his 14 starts to date , with recent wins at Wadebridge and Great Trethew, and could see Darren Edwards back on board to set the pace here. Entry Jack Snipe is the highest rated having won an Open at Badbury Rings under jockey Shane Quinlan for trainer Robert Hawker, but also holds an entry at both Milbourne St Andrew and Ston Easton this weekend. Navanman (John Heard) is another Open winner and he has clocked up four wins this season including two Mixed Opens and an Open at Charlton Horthorne two weeks ago and will need to defy top weight under regular jockey Bryan Carver, who himself rode a Hunter Chase winner at Exeter earlier this week. The combination are also entered at Milborne St Andrew on Saturday. The popular grey Dicky Bob for trainer Verity Nicholls, is already a dual course winner, and could be a likely runner to score his hat-trick at the course. He could again be partnered by young jockey Tomasina Eyston who had an early unlucky unseat last weekend at Buckfastleigh.

Today’s very high winds, with occasional blustery showers, sure challenged our volunteers preparing for Sunday’s Buckfastleigh meeting. But it takes a lot to deter real “pointing” folk and although heavy rain was expected later in the day, with the prospect of a much improved forecast for Sunday they battled on with good humour, vowing to be up early Sunday to finish off the “cosmetics”, bins, banners and bogs, not forgetting the flags for the finish line!

As forecast, the wind and rain has already abated this evening (9pm), so rest assured we intend to be all ready to welcome you to our Course tomorrow, be it to race a pony or pointer, or just to enjoy the spectacle and a flutter, but tip for the day, do wear stout footwear – it is March after all!

I will post an up to date Buckfastleigh Going Report as soon as one is available to me tomorrow and I look forward to seeing you all there.
