GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015

Website_BD_E_Money_Talks_Banner

IT was about a score draw in the end between the bookmakers and punters at Bratton Down.

The bookis drew first blood when course winner Bernshaw was well beaten in the opener. He was a solid 1-2 favourite after touching 4-6. I thought he looked plenty fit enough in the preliminaries, but he was beaten a long way out. The winner, The Mystro, was second best in the market at 2-1 and lost his maiden tag in some style.

The 10-runner Restricted looked quite an open event and they went 5-2 A Real Cliché who opened at 3’s, Will Biddick’s mount ran well but nobody had any answers to Beaufort winner The Flying Doc (solid 4-1) who cruised up to the leaders on the home turn and won on the bit. She looks a decent mare and can progress from here. I backed runner-up Winter Garden (9-2 touched 5.s). This six-year-old had won nicely at Trebudannon and ran quite well in the DBS bumper at Aintree. He stays well and is one to keep an eye on for the future

Claire Hitch has done well with Minella Fifty who won an Irish point but was evidently not easy to train in the Jonjo O’Neill yard after changing hands for an enormous sum. He is in good form at present and did well to beat the useful Presentandcorrect (11-4 from 5-2) in the Ladies’ Open.

The Midnight Legend six-year-old Whataknight has gone from strength to strength this year and took his upgrading to Open class in his stride. He is a workmanlike type with plenty of speed and looks a natural to progress to better things. 5-4 did not last long and he was a solid 4-6 at the off. Wincanton hunter chase winner Parkam Jack (5-2 ), bidding for his fourth win of the season, found his 7 lbs penalty just too much. .

Favourite backers soon knew their fate in the Intermediate when Credit Crunched (2-1) ploughed through the fifth fence and unseated Johny Bailey. What About Will had found it hard to win an Intermediate since his Black Forest win in January, but looks more street wise now and drew right away under Vicky Wade up the final climb to score easily here,

The Maiden was divided on the day with declarations just one above the safety factor. The slightly quicker division went to the Kayley Woollacott mare Spendajennie (4’s out to 6’s). She had been lightly raced since I gave a favourable note to her at Wadebridge in January, but she kept on well up the hill to hold Master Max (5-4 fav touched 6-4).

The Jack Barber trained four-year-old Brandevin (evens out to 11-8 favourite) took the other division to record his trainer’s 50th win of the season. Brandevin fetched £30,000 at Brightwells Cheltenham breeze up sales last December and had a lot to live up to. He was very green and was given an exemplary quiet educational ride by Will Biddick . He probably didn’t know he was in a race until his rider asked him to quicken after the last and had a good look at the crowd as he mastered his rivals on meeting the higher ground. I expect he will finish up under rules with Paul Nicholls.

REPORT ON THE EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015

Website_BD_E_Report_Banner

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

OVERNIGHT rain gave way to a cool, blustery afternoon at Bratton Down where it was business as usual with a double for the unstoppable combination of trainer Jack Barber and jockey Will Biddick.

The progressive Whataknight was given a typically patient Biddick ride to win the Men’s Open. “He was rushed off his feet for the first two miles so I had to be patient. You can’t go quick and keep going quick here,” explained the rider on the verge of securing his fourth consecutive National championship. Six-year-old Whataknight remains unbeaten in his four races this season.

Trainer Jack Barber has enjoyed a remarkable season in winning his first trainers championship, increasing his winning tally from 14 last year to 50 this season. His half century came up when Brandevin, making his racecourse debut, overcame greenness to win a section of the Maiden which was divided on the day.

Once again Biddick nursed and educated his mount from the back until swooping to lead up the final climb. “He was really green and ticks every box. There is room for improvement in him,” reported Biddick, who was enjoying his 66th winner of the season and whose career successes in the saddle had topped the 300 mark at Stratford just a few days before. Four-year-old Brandevin was purchased at the Cheltenham breeze up sales last December by Tom Malone. He is now in the ownership of Colm Donlon and Richard Webb. “He has needed time but he works well and jumps well,” said Jack Barber.

The race was marred when Jo Buck was fired into the ground when her mount Strong Hurricane fell at the second fence. Jo was concussed and spent the night in Barnstaple hospital. She was reported to have facial injuries but thankfully a scan revealed no broken bones.

Biddick’s mount Master Max was runner up in the other Maiden division won by Matt Hampton on six-year-old mare Spendajennie. Bought at the Tattersalls Derby sales as a four-year-old, the Old Vic mare is owned by Andrew and Hannah Broggio and is trained by Kayley Woollacott who described her charge as, “ A lovely madam who works and jumps well at home,” Kayley was achieving her 25th pointing winner of the season, in addition to a hunter chase.

Claire Hitch trains just a few miles from the course and saddled Minella Fifty to win the Ladies’ Open after a battle with the consistent Presentandcorrect. The winning rider, 19-year-old Charlotte Prichard, is looking forward to three months working holiday in New Zealand during the summer.

Bernshaw has proved something of a Bratton Down course specialist for the Claire Hitch stable, but could only finish third on this occasion in the Hunt race behind The Mystro. Lee Drowne, who works in the Nigel Hawke yard, sent his mount to the front at the third last before drawing right away from Father Owen. Placed over hurdles in Ireland for Mouse Morris, the winner is now with Keith Cumings, and had been knocking at the door in his English points this season.

The Flying Doc treated her nine Restricted rivals with disdain. The mare was cruising coming to the last and Robbie Henderson only had to let out an inch of rein coming up the hill to overcome A Real Cliché and Winter Garden. “She is a pocket rocket and jumped brilliantly,” confirmed the jockey. Ed Walker bought the Dr Massini seven-year-old for only 4,000 euros at Tattersalls, Ireland last August. She had scored at Didmarton on her English debut in March where she was ridden by Ed Barrett, who subsequently suffered serious injuries in a fall at the Eggesford a few weeks later.

Favourite backers soon knew their fate when long distance traveller Credit Crunched blundered and unseated Johny Bailey at the fifth fence in the Intermediate which was run in memory of Donna Kingdon. What About Will took command entering the final circuit and strode clear after the last. Neil Harris saddled the winner who was partnered by Vicky Wade for her father Keith. “He has sharpened up his jumping after his two recent Hunter chases,” said the trainer.

Preview: Exmoor Point-to-Point Bratton Down, Sunday 31st May 2015

Website_BD_E_Preview_Banner
Written by: Donna Harris

The stunning location of Bratton Down is the location for this weekends Point-to-Point, where the Exmoor Foxhounds hold their fixture this Sunday May 31st. A fabulous day is on offer for all the family, with pony racing heading up the action at 1pm includes two pony races which are sponsored by Teapes Tyres. The main six race card follows at 2pm, over 100 entries having been received.

Bray Leino sponsor the Ladies Open race, and Moore Scarrott Accountants sponsor the Men’s Open, which look to be the feature races of the day. Local trainer Claire Hitch could snatch the Ladies race with Minella Fifty, having won at Milborne St Andrew under jockey Charlotte Prichard when sent off favourite that day. Top Chief from the Stuart Sampson team, also holds strong claims having won the Members race here two weeks ago under jockey Jake Bament. In the Men’s Open Whataknight won here under champion jockey Will Biddick for the Jack Barber team. The equally rated Parkham Jack also holds an entry in the Stratford Hunter Chase evening this Friday, but could go close if the Woollacott team choose to run him here. Level Spirit from the Ed Walker team clocked up wins at both Flete meetings and a second at Holnicote, and Little Cornham with his wins at Badbury and Cothelstone from the Keith Cumings team, are two other suggestions that catch the eye.

Trainer Claire Hitch holds three strong entries in the opening Members race, sponsored by RSM Beares & B Thornes & Sons Agric, including Bernshaw, a winner here at the first meeting who gave Will Biddick his record breaking season run of winners. I’m All Set is another possible runner from the Hitch yard who could go well having already clocked up a seasons hat-trick, including the Intermediate race at Trebudannon. The Mystro from the Keith Cumings team ran well in the Maiden here at the last meeting, when a neck second behind Bugsie Malone could give another strong challenge.

The Rosettes Direct-sponsored Restricted race could go the way of the Joe Tickle-trained Templestateforesco to follow up on his neck second at Vauterhill. The Flying Doc from the Ed Walker team could be another to note having shown some good form when winning at Didmarton.

The lightly raced Credit Crunched could figure in the Intermediate race to follow on from his four length second at Whitfield in March, What About Will was unlucky to finish a neck second in a small field at Larkhill and should go close. This race is sponsored by Ashley Farrant and the Kingdon family in memory of Donna Kingdon.

It is likely that the Open maiden race will be divided on the day with 30 entered. Suggestions could be Looking For Mick who ran a promising second here at the last meeting, and Kit Hill from the Jackie du Plessis team ran well at Flete Park when second, having led until headed by winner Nudge The Nugget in the final 50 yards. The maiden races, if divided, will be sponsored by The Old Station House Inn and Slee Blackwell Solicitors.

Along with racing, on course facilities include hot refreshments, bar, bookies and a host of trade stands. Entrance to the course is £10 car & driver, £10 per passenger up to a max of £30 per car. Pedestrians £10 with children under 16 free.

The course is located at Bratton Fleming, 9m NE of Barnstaple on A399, 11m N of South Molton EX31 4SG

Preview: Four Burrow Point-To-Point, Trebudannon, nr St. Columb Major, Easter Monday, 6th April 2015

Website_FB1_Preview_Banner
Written by Donna Harris
The second of the Point-to-Point meetings over the Easter weekend takes place at Trebudannon, where it is the turn of the Fourburrow to host their event on Bank Holiday Monday April 6, start time 1pm. This course is popular with its natural amphitheatre style providing fantastic viewing. They have eight races on offer including the Bonhams Cornish National Men’s Open race, attracting entries such as Chapoturgeon from the Jack Barber team who was a National Hunt Festival winner. Posh Totty from the same yard is another entry bang in form, having been in the frame on all 12 of her last starts. The prolific winning mare Lucette Annie is also entered, as is Bradley Brook, both hold strong claims if not running at Cherrybrook on Saturday.
 
The Members race, sponsored by A.G.Prowse heads up the action. Previous course winner Reliable Richie is the pick of the three Reuben Chapman entries, who could improve on his third behind Silver Token and Mic’s Delight at Buckfastleigh.
 
The Open Maiden has already been divided, Miss Weld ran second here last season, she loves the soft and goes well for young jockey Pippa Glanville. Boyman is another entry with a previous second at this course under jockey Conor Smith.
 
In the second division of the Open Maiden, Ryalzaro trained by Jack Barber, ran close at Larkhill in January finishing second under Will Biddick. Mount Prospex for the Jill Dennis team would be the one to fear if connections choose this race over Cherrybrook entry, after his head second at Kilworthy.
 
Mic’s Delight could put claims on the Truro Tractors-sponsored Confined race, having been in the frame on all of his starts this season for owner/trainer/jockey Jennifer Davenport. He loves the soft, likes to keep his head in front as he showed when winning at Ottery. Knight Pass for the Nikki Frost yard and Devon General for Kayley Woollacott could be the ones to chase him home.

Sweet My Lord connections will be looking for a hat-trick after his two wins at Wadebridge, and was running well at Kilworthy until falling.

Im All Set, from the Claire Hitch yard, who won his Maiden at Ston Easton at the second time of asking under Will Biddick. This race is sponsored by Tremaine Plant Hire.
