Preview: Stevenstone Point-To-Point, Vauterhill, Monday May 5th

Monday’s Point-to-Point, May 5th, is to be held at Vauterhill, High Bickington, where The Stevenstone will be hosting their first event for two years at the course. The first race is off at 2pm, with six races attracting nearly 100 entries. Extensive drainage work has been completed at the course, which is reported to have a good grass covering.

In the Frilly Frocks sponsored Members race the Neil Harris-trained King Of Alcatraz looks the likely favourite, he won the Intermediate final Hunter Chase at Exeter last year, and has not been out of the frame so far this season under jockey Vicky Wade, including a second in a Hunter Chase in March again at Exeter. His connections may choose to run him a Cheltenham where he holds an entry, in which case  Just Seven was impressive when winning his maiden in a twelve runner race at Trebudannon, coming home five lengths ahead of Myladtommy. Carol Lawrence holds five of the entries, and Ahh Bless should be worth following after leading in a 14-runner Maiden at Kilworthy then finishing second, after being headed by Maidstone Mercury in final 100 yards.

Also with a Cheltenham ticket is Bob Lewis, but if connections decide to bypass his run there, then he could be well fancied to take the TT Buildings Ltd sponsored Restricted race, after his second at Buckfastleigh. Minella Web from the Kayley Woollacott team showed promise when winning her Maiden at Badbury Rings in February, coming home two and a half lengths ahead of Raffa, and is another suggestion.

The Holiday Cottages-sponsored Mixed Open has attracted eleven entries, two of which, being Cottage Acre and Steeltown, look to be Cheltenham contenders this week. That could leave it to the John Pearn-owned Lightening Jack to battle out the finish with the Heard family’s Googoobarabajagal, who is yet to find his form this season, Numide from the Gordon Chambers team, having won at Great Trethew, and Great Gusto for the Frost family, who under Bryony Frost has scored three seconds in a row and must be due a win soon.

Suggestions for the Kivells sponsored Confined race would be the Nicola Martin-trained Bradley Brook, after his wins at Upcott Cross and Kilworthy, and the Keith Cumings-trained Whenharrymetsally after his win at Great Trethew, when holding on well to fend off My Rebel by a length.

Whenharrymetsally  also holds an entry in the E J Wade & Son sponsored Intermediate race, and could again take on Upcott Cross winner My Rebel. Camilla Scott has entered Soul Native, who holds strong claims after his win at Cothelstone, coming home a head in front of Red Penny who has a won since.

The Open Maiden race has attracted 24 entries of which Myladtommy, Pyleigh Princess and Ahh Bless are some suggestions.

The course offers great viewing of the undulating track . All facilities including hot refreshments, bar, bookies and trade stands. and is located next door to the Vauterhill Stud.

Entrance is £10 car & driver, £20 car and passengers. Location is signed from A377, A3124 and B3217. Postcode EX37 9BT

Preview: Dartmoor Point-To-Point, Flete Park, Saturday 19 April 2014

The Dartmoor Foxhounds point-to-point this Saturday April 19th, is held at the popular party track and stunning location of Flete Park. It promises to be a fabulous family day out. Pony racing heads up the action at 1pm with two pony races, followed by the main seven race card commencing at 2pm.

In addition to the main card, and immediately following the last race there is a charity Clydesdale race, with proceeds going to the Devon Air Ambulance.

The opening Members race could be a great battle between the local trainers and jockey’s. Sunken Secret could go well for young Pippa Glanville, trained by mother Lee, seeing Pippa score her first win. Pippa will need to fend off Great Trethew winner Numide, out of the Gordon Chambers yard, Sir Watty who made all when winning at Wadebridge for trainer David Rogers, and the Frost’s team entries of Wadebridge winner Sangram and Brackenwood who under Bryony Frost won his Restricted at Buckastleigh, and then went on to finish third in the Intermediate at Kilworthy with Sunken Secret back in fourth. Ladyvie, trained by Clerk of the course Sam Holdsworth, ran second behind the Will Biddick-ridden Champagne Rosie at Cothelstone last weekend and may snatch this for young jockey Hannah Welch, who is also seeking her first winner.

In the Restricted race, suggestions would be Glacial Oscar for the Henderson team, having won his maiden at Treborough Hill, coming home 20 lengths ahead of Nudge The Nugget. He followed that up with a third at Larkhill when sent off even money favourite, but weakened two out. And the Kayley Woollacott-trained Ratline Rose, who clocked up a win at Wadebridge in January,and a second at the same course when coming home two and a half lengths behind Sir Watty in March.

The feature race of the day looks to be the Totnes & Bridgetown sponsored four mile Mixed open, entries include the Emma Oliver-trained Gershwinner who was third here last season under jockey Merv Woodward, with another entry, King’s Wood back in fourth. Gershwinner ran at Kilworthy recently, and was only just denied, finishing third to winner Cottage Acre and a neck down on second placed Tugboat. King’s wood hasn’t been seen since winning at Cothelstone last season, when trained by Leighton McGuiness. He has now joined the Henderson team, has revious wins in double figures and would appreciate the drying ground, but may need the run.

The two mile four furlong Open Maiden sponsored by Francis Clark has 18 entries, in which Ah Bless ran second at Kilworthy only just headed in the final 100 yards, could score here. Another entry, the Ed Walker-trained Madam Be, could be in the winners enclosure, having been sent off favourite at Little Windsor earlier this month, that day having to settle for a close third behind the Richard Barber-trained winner Dancing Solo.

Thetalkinghorse trained by Keith Cumings is a suggestion in the Elizabeth May Memorial Intermediate race, having impressive wins at Black Forest Lodge and Treborough Hill. Punter Friendly from the Ed Walker team won his Maiden here last season, and has since clocked up two good efforts this season, only just being denied a win at Didmarton, when second by a head to Loose Performer and second behind Un Ami at Buckfastleigh in March.

Thinkaboutthat after his win at Ston Eston under jockey Robbie Henderson last month, and the front running Ned White, who will appreciate the drying ground, are suggestions for the Confined race which is sponsored by Rogers of Plymouth.

The Open Maiden could go to the Sarah Tickle-trained Way Before Dawn, who could follow-up on his close seconds at Black Forest Lodge and Great Trethew.

With a host of trade stands, hot food, bar, and bookies all on course, this is a great way to enjoy entertainment in the fresh air.

Entrance is £10 car & driver £20 car and passengers. Course is located at Ermington, nr Ivybridge.  Post code PL21 9NX

REPORT: EAST CORNWALL POINT-TO-POINT, GREAT TRETHEW, 30th MARCH 2014

A good crowd saw a total of 74 runners contesting nine races at Great Trethew featuring doubles for jockeys Robbie Henderson and Darren Edwards.

Henderson rode a confident race on Blazing Whale to win the Mixed Open which saw the odds-on favourite Byerley Bear (Leanda Tickle) well held in third. Currently the leading horse in the country with five wins this season, the normal front running Byerley Bear could only finish third after being hassled for the lead, firstly by Almail and then by Valentine Vic.

Robbie Henderson pounced on his rivals before the second last and it was left to Wee Fly and Bryony Frost to follow the winner home as Byerley Bear faded.

Owned jointly by his trainer Ed Walker and Francis Read, Blazing Whale was described as, “progressive and a good stayer who tries really hard,” by his in- form jockey. Byerley Bear could be seen out next on Easter Monday at Trebudannon and can hopefully regain his winning form.

24-year-old Henderson went on to ride his 17th winner of the season with a similar late thrust on Kings Bench to take the Exeter Racecourse Intermediate qualifier. “He is a hold up horse and I hope we can go to the Exeter final. He has taken time to gain his confidence and his owner Laura Claydon has been so patient,” remarked trainer Marie McGuinness.

Despite a brave effort, Shanann Star was just touched off by Kings Bench, but her rider Darren Edwards more than made up for that by winning both sections of the Open Maiden for four to seven-year-olds which had to be divided on the day.

Droim Rua jumped his 11 rivals into submission in the first section to win by the length of the run-in. “I bought him out of a bog in Donegal last July and he was a bit fizzy to start with,” smiled Newton Ferrers owner/ trainer David Rogers who paid tribute to his work rider Sarah Boxenhall.

Darren had to work harder as the promising five-year-old Sykes stayed on well to hold off Way Before Dawn in the other division. “We bought Sykes at the Derby sales as a three-year-old and he will be better next year when he strengthens up,” commented trainer Nicola Martin.

Another nice youngster in the shape of the previously unraced mare Theatre Goer took the Open Maiden limited to four and five-year-olds. Ian Chanin had the leg up on Theatre Goer, trained by his father Robert for owners Roger Knowles and Annie Argyrides. “She has a lovely attitude and is easy to train. Her half brother has been placed in a listed bumper and she will probably be offered for sale at Cheltenham,” commented the trainer.

The handsome grey Fountains Cloud won the Hunt race for the third successive year for local owners David and Angela Stephens. “He loves it here, especially coming down the hill,” said rider Leanda Tickle.

Leanda was just denied a double on My Rebel whose late run just failed to peg back Whenharrymetsally (Matt Hampton) in the Restricted. The winner is a good looking six-year-old who won her Maiden on this track last year. “She needs soft ground,” remarked trainer Keith Cumings who bought the Kings Theatre mare for owners Hannah and Andrew Broggio at Fairyhouse as a four-year-old.

Not many horses run in the Grand Pardubice Steeplechase en route to Great Trethew, but Shalimar Fromentro did just that last October. The eight-year-old is also a regular on the cross country circuits in France, so jumping was never going to be a problem in the Novice Riders’ contest. Chester Williams had the mount on this occasion and the grey was always travelling well before giving his 16-year-old schoolboy rider his fifth winner of the season. “Chester has a chance of winning the National Novice Riders’ title and this horse will stay pointing before going for French cross country races again,” remarked Jane Williams.

It was good to see Numide (Michael Heard) get his head in front for the first time in three years in the Confined. This 11-year-old is a veteran of over 60 races and has won his various owners more than £200,000 in his time. He is now the pride and joy of Gordon Chambers. “He was once fifth in the French Derby and is one of the nicest horses in the yard. Even I ride him, said Gordon.

MONEY TALKS

The bookies came out best with only three successful favourites during the afternoon. Long odds-on chances BYERLEY BEAR (2-5) and GREAT GUSTO (4-9) proved painful for the big hitters when failing to deliver.There was a double blow for punters in the Restricted. The Frost seven-year-old SANGRAM had landed a gamble at Wadebridge and was backed from 7-4 to evens to follow up in this event. Despite looking really fit, he was unable to get into the race where it mattered and was pulled up by Bryony Frost two out.Conversely WHENHARRYMETSALLY (some of us are old enough to remember the film) drifted from 5-4 to 5-2 before holding off the late challenge of 4-1 chance MY REBEL.QUIL EST BEAU was noted at 12-1 before being backed into 7’s in the Hunt race. This former David Pipe trained chaser has never been renowned for consistency and lost touch on the final circuit.Despite two unspectacular runs, the Tiger Hill five-year-old TIGGY STARDUST was the subject of a gamble in the second part of the split Maiden. Noted at early 10’s the youngster was as low as 6-4 when the field was despatched, but forgot his lines and failed to complete. He comes from a shrewd yard and it would be no surprise to see him retrieve the losses before the end of the season.There was some respite for punters when the previously unraced five-year-old THEATRE GOER (5’s to 7-2) made a winning debut in the Maiden for four and five-year-olds. Robert Chanin had the youngster spot on and he responded well when asked to quicken down the hill.
