Preview: Eggesford Point-to-Point at Upcott Cross Sunday 12 April 2015

Website_EUC_Preview_Banner

Written by: Donna Harris
Horse racing enthusiasts will still be buzzing after the Grand National, and flock to Upcott Cross, where the Eggesford will be staging their Point-to-Point, which features their own four mile Devon National Mixed Open race, this weekend Sunday April 12. With a start time of 1pm, there are eight races on offer and a bumper entry of over 130 horses.

The Nigel Cant Planning-sponsored Members races heads up the days events, in which the Stuart Reddaway-trained Fourstar River could improve on his recent third at Kilworthy. Also entered is Hallo Dolly, having not been seen on the track for two years, her previous form of two Point wins and a third at this track could make her a leading contender.

There follows the Exeter Racecourse-sponsored Intermediate race, in which Roseyroo from the Louise Caddle team, could follow up on her second at Ston Easton last month, under Harry Cobden the combination were only denied by a neck. With the Jack Barber team sending out winners each weekend, his entry Ask The Weatherman has to be respected following his wins at Badbury Rings, Charlton Hawthorne and Cotley. Dancing Olga is a previous course winner here, and ran second in an Intermediate at Bratton Down on good to firm.

The Confined race is sponsored by Chris Hodgeson Engineering, this could go the way of According To Harry, he ran three lengths second to Minella Web at Kilworthy, having previously clocked up wins at Black Forest Lodge and Wadebridge. Jepeck for the Kayley Woollacott team won his Restricted at Larkhill and an Intermediate at Chipley Park, he pulled up on good to firm on his latest outing at Larkhill, but may run well here if any rain softens the ground.

The Devon National Mixed Open looks very competitive, Bellsinni Ron was second here last season, and could score under Will Biddick for the Barber team, Dashing John could improve on his third in a Ladies Open last month under Natalie Parker. Bradley Brook is another to consider, having won here last season and follow up on his recent win at Great Trethew. This race is sponsored by Simpkins Edwards.

In the Restricted race sponsored by TT Buildings, Boa Island catches the eye after his 20 length win of a maiden race at Charlton Hawthorne under National leading jockey Will Biddick last month. Peterbrown could go well for Karyn Heard, having taken the maiden race at Kilworthy, when making virtually all of the running to win by five lengths.

David Pipe sponsors the Open Maiden race for mares and fillies, in which Southfield Fairy ran promisingly at Ston Easton when third under jockey Alice Mills, and should be in the mix. Queens Law had hinted at ability last season when finishing second on both of her starts and may go well fresh.

The Open Maiden race for horses and geldings has already been divided. In the first division San Satiro could be a horse for the future, making his debut run here, out of the Jack Barber yard for owner Paul Nicholls. Both Turnstone and Master Max have had the benefit of a run this season, with any market support worth noting. The second division of the open maiden could see the Jill Dennis-trained Mount Prospex go one better than his head second at the recent Kilworthy meeting. Derniere Dance could be worth an each way bet. These races have been sponsored by David Phillips Bookmakers and Sarah Prouse Birthday Celebrations.

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

The course is located 2 miles South of Halwill junction, off A3079. Postcode EX21 5AE

Entrance to course is £10 per person up to a maximum of £30 per car. Children under 16 free.

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.
 
The Ladies Open race is sponsored by Carrs Landrover Truro, in which Minella Fifty could score again here after his recent win at Milborne St Andrew, when sent off odds on favourite, for the Claire Hitch team. 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. 
 
The Restricted race is a qualifier for the Subaru Restricted Point-to-Point series final to be held at Stratford racecourse on Friday 29th May,  in which entries include On Your Max, who has been knocking at the door for a Restricted win. Templeton was only just denied a win under Jamie Thomas when caught in the final 150 yards by winner Sonoftheking. 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.
 
Lamanva Brood Mares sponsor the three mile Open Maiden race, Judge John Deed could make his debut Point run here for the Barber family, who have a good strike rate with maiden horses at this course. Arny and Up To Ollie both ran well at the Kilworthy meeting and should improve for the run.
 
The course at Trebudannon is located at St Columb Major, signed off A30 and A39. Postcode TR9 4LP. Entrance to the course is £10 per person to a max of £30 per car. Children under 16 free. On course facilities include bar, bookies, trade stands and hot refreshments.

Written by: Donna Harris
 
THE Spooners & West Dartmoor host the first of two Point-to-Point horse racing fixtures in the area, to be held over the Easter weekend, with their meeting taking place on Saturday April 4th at Cherrybrook, near Tavistock. Six races are on offer which start at 1pm. They include a competitive Mixed Open, sponsored by Langdon Transport, in which entries include prolific winning mare Lucette Annie and Hunter Chase winner Double Bank. Hameldown Tor is another entry holding strong claims if following up from his win at Milborne St Andrew where jockey Rob Henderson clocked up his 100th winner. 
 
The Exeter Racecourse Intermediate race features, which is a qualifier for the Connolly’s Red Mills Intermediate Championship final Hunter Chase to be at Cheltenham on April 29th. Entries include the two Nicola Martin-trained horses According To Harry and Sonoftheking, both with a strong chance of winning here. Miss Gotaway is another suggestion, having progressed well when taking the Restricted race at Buckfastleigh under Jamie Thomas for trainer Kayley Woollacott.
 
The Members race is sponsored by Condy Mathias, this could see locally trained Dicky Bob make it five out of five in Point races, having won at Kilworthy two weeks ago for the Verity Nicholls team, he seems unstoppable.
 
Tyre Marks sponsor the Restricted race, in which the Ed Walker-trained Doyen Dynamo could follow up on his win two weeks ago at Kilworthy, when taking the Maiden race three lengths ahead of Steel Brush. On Your Max another from the Walker team, ran a good second at Larkhill recently. Lucius Fabeo and Polo The Mumm could figure if the going stays soft, for novice jockey’s Olivia Hutchings and Hannah Welch.
 
The Rock Inn sponsor the Confined, with Mic’s Delight possibly skipping this meeting for Mondays fixture, it will leave the door open for Diamond Brook to follow up on his second to Dicky Bob at Kilworthy. Mausefalle is another to catch the eye, after his win under jockey Darren Edwards in the Members race also at Kilworthy.
 
The Open Maiden race is sponsored by Charles Stanley, which closes the days event. Suggestions are Spendajennie, Arny and Mount Prospex.
 
The course at Cherrybrook is a popular picnic track for all the family, with on course facilities of bar, bookies, many trade stands and hot refreshments.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – LAMERTON POINT-TO-POINT AT KILWORTHY 22ND MARCH 2015

Website_Money_Talks_Banner_Lamerton

The form held up well at sunny Kilworthy with success for four clear favourites and two second favourites. Punters certainly had the edge during the afternoon and one regular backer found the first seven winners on the eight-race card. On the downside his wife now wants a holiday out of it.

Although RACEY LACEY (5-4 to 6-4) let her backers down in the opening Hunt race, it wasn’t long until the books took a pounding.

DOYEN DYNAMO (solid 6-4 fav) confirmed his Didmarton promise in the first Maiden under a patient ride from Danny Burton. STEEL BRUSH (3’s out to 5’s) was not wanted in the ring but this good looking ex-Irish pointer caught the eye on his British debut to chase the winner home and looks a winner in waiting.

The other division of the Open Maiden had to be divided on the day. WINTER SOLDIER (15-8 fav touched 2’s) just got the better of MOUNT PROSPEX (4 -1) in a driving finish to the first section in the fastest Maiden time of the day.

PETERBROWN (5-4 out to 7-4 fav) has experience under rules and his creditable second to Dicky Bob at Buckfastleigh gave him the form edge in the final maiden. The Karyn Heard trained seven-year-old jumped well and duly obliged under young Jake Bament.

So far so good, but if every favourite won the bookies would be out of business and sure enough the Mixed Open put a stop to the party. The popular South Devon gelding DOUBLE BANK (4-7 – 4-6) made a bold bid to dominate the race but was just caught by LOOSE PREFORMER (9’s to 10’s) on the gruelling final climb.

DICKY BOB is fast becoming a Devon & Cornwall star and the eight-year-old stepped up to Confined company under Jo Buck to record his fourth successive victory. The popular grey was sent off 4-5 fav.

SONOFTHEKING (3’S to 4’S) started second favourite for the 16-runner Restricted under in-form jockey Darren Edwards. He looked held approaching the last, but overhauled the 14-1 outsider TEMPLETON close home. Third placed IT’S ALL OR NOTHING was nibbled at from 14’s to 10’s and can win a Restricted.

The queues for ice cream had subsided when the flag was dropped for the final event at 6 o’clock, but there was plenty of activity in the ring. A few decent bets were seen for FOURSTAR RIVER whose odds rapidly contracted from 8-1 to 5-2. ACCORDING TO HARRY (7-4 fav) was also strongly supported having been laid to the early skirmishers at 7-2. In the end these well backed horses could only fill the places behind the Kayley Woollacott trained MINELLA WEB who was easy to back at around 6’s and 7’s.

REPORT ON THE LAMERTON POINT-TO-POINT MEETING AT KILWORTHY, SUNDAY 22nd MARCH 2015

Website_Report_Banner_Lamerton

by Granville Taylor & Donna Harris

THE old turf on the historic Kilworthy track (first used in 1925) was described by jockeys as “absolutely perfect.” for the Lamerton meeting.

The weather was also at its best with the massive crowd basking in sunshine against the scenic backcloth of Dartmoor.

Two winning rides thanks to Mausefalle and Sonoftheking kept Darren Edwards in a commanding position for this year’s Devon & Cornwall championship.

Mausefalle, trained by Dean Summersby, set the ball rolling for Edwards when staying on well to win the Hunt race for the Lamerton president Mike Bickell. “I was delighted to win the Members as dad did 50 years ago. He is a genuine hunter and has hunted all through the season,” said Mike.

Edwards had to work harder to get Sonoftheking home in front in the 16-runner Restricted, just getting the better of Templeton on the climb to the judge. Trainer Nicky Martin reported that her Wadebridge winner, “came from Philip Hobbs and couldn’t run last year after recovering from a twisted gut. He never produced much under rules and Richard Johnson suggested to take him hunting”.

Welsh jockey John Mathias denied Darren Edwards a treble when Minella Web showed plenty of determination to hold hat trick seeking According To Harry in the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate. The winner got first run at the foot of the hill to score in the colours of Roddy Harvey-Bailey. Winning trainer Kayley Woollacott said, “We bought him in Ireland relatively cheaply. He needs top of the ground and has done it nicely.”

Mathias had earlier scored on Winter Soldier, also saddled by Kayley Woollacott, in a Maiden race which had to be divided on the day. The five-year-old good looking Apple Tree gelding was home bred by Lucy Fielding-Johnson, who shares ownership with Ces Mitford-Slade. Winter Soldier mastered Mount Prospex (Jamie Lyttle) by a head after the pair had battled it out neck and neck from the penultimate. “He was broken as a two-year-old and this was only his second run. He will stick to point-to-pointing this year and could be one for the (DBS) bumper championship,” said Lucy.

Peterbrown jumped well and was always in the box seat in the hands of 18-year-old Jake Bament to win the other section of the Maiden. “Jake gave him a lovely quiet and confident ride,” commented trainer Karyn Heard, adding “He was bought at Ascot last year out of Nick Gifford’s yard for owner Sally White.” The race was marred by a nasty fall for Chester Williams, the reigning area novice title holder, who suffered concussion when Sedgemoor Top Bid came down at the third last.

Jake Bament was partnering his fourth career winner and another novice rider took the spoils in a competitive Mixed Open which was delayed for an hour whilst the medics worked on the stricken young jockey from the previous race. Hedley Webb, who works as a farrier, had ridden his first winner when Loose Preformer, whom he owns and trains, won at Didmarton two weeks ago. This time he conjured a great run out of the former National Hunt horse to pass the favourite Double Bank inside the final 100 yards. Loose Preformer changed hands for £80,000 in his younger days and was one of AP McCoy’s millions of winners in the past.

The well made six-year-old Doyen Dynamo had given notice of his ability when runner up at Didmarton on his British debut and went one better here in the Maiden race dedicated to the late Yvonne Watson, who had enjoyed success as a trainer on this track. Doyen Dynamo was saddled by Ed Walker for owners John Dorse and Mike Roe who acquired him from Ireland last summer. Winning jockey Danny Burton remarked that, “He took a circuit to get jumping but is a very nice horse.”

The consistent Dicky Bob notched his fourth consecutive victory under Jo Buck in the Confined in a tight finish with Diamond Brook and King Kash. Successful just a week ago at Buckfastleigh, the grey turned out again as fresh as paint. Owner/trainer Verity Nicholls said, “He went out in a field the next day bucking. I walked the course yesterday and thought we might as well go for it. If he comes out okay we will probably run on Easter weekend then turn him away.”
