Preview: Dartmoor Point-To-Point, Flete Park, Saturday 16th April 2016

Website_Preview_D16

Written by: Donna Harris

The first of two Point-to-Point’s to take place at the popular picnic track of Flete Park near Ermington this season takes place on Saturday 16th April. A fantastic day out is on offer with two pony races heading up the action which starts at 1pm these have been kindly sponsored by Flete Estate owner Anthony Mildmay-White. The main seven race card starts at 2pm and has attracted over 120 entries.

The opening Members race sponsored by A Salon Called Fish looks to be a battle between local jockey’s, many of which are pony racing graduates, these include Pippa Glanville riding four times course winner Ambitious Pursuit, Millie Wonnacott riding Coombe Hill a winner of eleven Points and six Hunter Chases , recent Cherrybrook winner Jennifer Davenport on Mic’s Delight, Bronwyn Buttery with Buckfastleigh winner Doctor Henry, Hannah Welch on the Charlie Stanley-owned Beuvron, and Thomasina Eyston with recent Great Trethew winner Ladyvie.

AGA-sponsor the four-mile Mixed Open race in which previous course winner Bellflower Boy‘s connections will be hoping he can stay the distance again having previously won at last years May meeting. Buck’s Bond has Chase form under rules when in training with champion trainer Paul Nicholls, and ran well for the Jack Barber team when second behind Delphi Mountain at Ston Eston. Imperial Circus is another with form under rules and is out of the Phillip Hobbs yard, now with the Mitford Slades at Pontispool, he had a win at Cothelstone last month and has shown some solid form this season.

Leading trainer Jack Barber has both Athreeothree who won his maiden at Charlton Hawthorne, and Ston Eston winner Rouge Devils who is partly owned by Sir Alex Ferguson entered in the Kitsons-sponsored Restricted race with the booking of jockey Will Biddick either entry will go close . The Keith Cumings team also looks double handed with Steel Brush and High Priority and will figure high in the betting ring out of the 19 entered.

Francis Clarke sponsor the first Open Maiden race for four, five and six year-olds, in which the Ed Walker-trained L’ane Fou having run second at this track last season and a recent runner up at Great Trethew, would look to be one of the bookies favorites out of the 24 entered. Ruby Fool from the Richard Mitford Slade team is another scoring a good runner up spot when a head second at Cothelstone under jockey Jamie Thomas, with Fishy Story from the Stuart Sampson team also being a suggestion having run well at Buckfastleigh on holding ground finishing fourth.

Rogers of Plymouth sponsor the Club Members race in which Ned The Post is to be considered having run a close second at Upton Upon Severn, and Turtle Tim from the Emma Pidsley team is another that could go close having run second recently to Champagne Rosie at Milborne St Andrew.

Delphi Mountain for trainer/jockey Emma Watson looks the pick of those entered in Elizabeth May Memorial Confined race, already on a seasons hat-trick of wins with the latest when staying on gamely to win at Ston Eston one and a half lengths ahead of Buck’s Bond. Whatastormnorm from the Robert Chanin team is another to note having recent wins at both Buckfastleigh and Great Trethew under jockey Tom Chanin, with the combination having traveled well here in the maiden race last season before falling at the last fence.

The final race of the day Tony Glynn Scaffolding-sponsored Open Maiden race in which those with recent runner up places who should figure are Gold Relief, L’ane Fou if not competing in the earlier maiden, Rainbow Stripes and Ruby Fool.

There will be a space hopper charity race at the end of the day, in aid of the Injured Jockeys Fund and to celebrate Amy Roberts’s hen party.

On course facilities include hot food and refreshments, bar, bookies, trade stands and track side viewing complimenting the fabulous atmosphere. Entrance to the course is £10 per person up to a maximum of £30 per car. Children under 16 go free. Dogs on leads welcome. Course is located at Flete Park near Ermington, nr Ivybridge Postcode PL21 9NX.

Point-to-Point Preview: Cornwall Club – Wadebridge, Sunday December 13

Website_Preview_CC15_Banner_Template

Written by: Donna Harris

The first of three Point-to-Point fixtures to be held at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge takes place this coming Sunday 13th December. with six races on the card which include the Moores of St Wenn Ltd Mens Open race. Entries in this race include the previous Cheltenham Festival hurdle winner Crack Away Jack. The 11 year old gelding, now trained by Chloe Roddick in Somerset, was once highly rated and looks an exciting prospect for the pointing season. Having run second in a hunter chase at Southwell last June, he will be well fancied to take this race. His opposition could come in the way of Working Title, trained by Samuel Drinkwater, the gelding has clocked up a total of eight point-to-point wins, including a win at this course last season for jockey Joe Drinkwater.

Home Furnishings of Wadebridge sponsor The Cornwall Club race for Novice riders which heads up the action at 12 noon. With horses such as prolific winning Kirkleigh entered, a winner of nine of his pointing starts and three Hunter Chases, the Robert Chanin-trained gelding finished last season with a Mens Open win at Trebudannon under jockey Tom Chanin, it will be a ride in this race for novice jockey Alistair Harvey. Recent Black Forest Lodge winner Premier Portrait, under jockey Gus Levinson will be looking to repeat that success. Also entered are last seasons winners Beuvron for Hannah Welsh, Ambitious Pursuit for Pippa Glanville and course specialist Sobre Tresor.

The Ladies race is sponsored by Robert Trevarthen, and could go the way of the Jackie Du Plessis-trained Ray Diamond, which would be a popular win for the Cornwall supporters. The horse is another to have been switched from racing under rules, and looks one to follow this season. His main rival could be the Robert Chanin-trained Sweet My Lord, having won at this track last season and looks to be one who could handle conditions if going is on the soft side. Rebel Du Maquis was disappointing last season for owner/trainer and rider Chloe Roddick, but could go well if finding his old form.

Subaru have sponsored the Restricted race, with a series prize at the end of the season being a years loan of a Subaru Forrester vehicle. Entries include recent winner Northgeorge for Welsh trainer Johnathan Tudor and jockey Byron Moorcroft who rode a double at the Black Forest Lodge meeting. Stainless Steel is another outside raider who could figure having graduated when winning his maiden last season for trainer Simon Jones. Another to consider is The Mystro trained by Keith Cumings for the Duckers & Divers club, having also graduated from maiden company last season when winning at Bratton Down and previously run well when third at this track.

Doctor Braveheart is another possible ride for jockey Byron Moorcroft in the Millerson sponsored Intermediate race. They could be the ones to catch having battled to win by a neck at Black Forest Lodge ahead of Champion jockey Will Biddick who was on board Templestatforesco. Sonoftheking could go well if improving after his recent second under jockey Darren Edwards, who looks to have the ride again for the Nicola Martin team.

The Open Maiden race sponsored by The Mather Partnership closes the days events, and of the 20 entries Gold Relief, Miss Weld and Thirtyfirst Dansar are a few to note with place form last season. This race could be divided on the day with sponsors The Old Inn, St Breward stepping up to cover the extra division.

The course at Wadebridge offers a great day out for all the family with a large covered barn which contains bookies, bar, hot refreshments, and a host of trade stands from clothing to gifts and accessories ideal for Christmas shopping. This year will have the addition of a large screen for optimum race viewing. One of the race sponsors, Subaru will also have a display of their vehicles on offer.

The course is located off the A39 W of Wadebridge – PL27 7JE. Entrance is £10 per person up to a max of £30 per car. Children under 16 free. For racegoers intending to travel via A30 to Bodmin, it might be prudent to allow an extra 5 – 10 minuets of journey time, as there is a speed restriction of 40mph along a stretch of road due to road works over Bodmin Moor. Alternatively, turn off at Kennards House after Launceston and go through Camelford.

Ryan Chapman:

Ryan and his family are the essence of a pointing family having supported the sport locally for generations. Ryan himself rode as a 16-year-old but had a long break to further his career as a farrier. He shed 5 stones in order to continue riding in point-to-points in the last couple of years.

Riding pointers prepared by the family, and with only a handful of rides, he rode his first winner at Wadebridge in January, and rode a double on Easter Monday at his local Trebudannon track.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – MODBURY HARRIERS POINT-TO-POINT, FLETE PARK, 2ND MAY 2015

Website_MHFP_Money_Talks_Banner

The opening Maiden race produced a lively betting market. The most surprising move was for the Mike Weir owned and trained A Real Cliché who was seen at 14-1 before dropping in spectacular fashion to his SP of 4-1. A half brother to a winning hurdler, his Irish point to point form was quite moderate and he was bought very cheaply at Ascot in July 2013. Maybe the booking of Will Biddick inspired the gamble. This was his English pointing debut and he was well there until fading from the second last. He can be given another chance. Poor Follow The Paint is the perpetual bridesmaid. She looked sure to break her duck when jumping clear over the last, but was mugged near the post by the fast finishing Bollin Spark (6-1) who came with a storming run under novice rider Hedley Webb.

The majority of the nine runners in the featured four miles Ladies’ Open drifted in the market. Despite a losing run of eight, Bellflower Boy started favourite (7-4 touched 2’s) presumably on the strength of his good effort behind Hameldown Tor over course and distance two weeks ago Bryony Frost sent the favourite to the front after the third last and had the race won by the last jump. Best Bide Quiet had been beaten eleven times since his Maiden win but kept on best of the rest here under young Pippa Glanville to chase the winner home at 50-1

The 5-2 joint favourites rose at the last fence in unison in the two and a half miles Maiden. Whatastormnorm was in the process of throwing down a strong challenge but crashed out, leaving the six-year-old Frost trained mare Milan of Crystal well clear.

After Level Spirit (4-11fav) enjoyed a walk in the park literally in winning the Men’s Open under Robbie Henderson, the last race of the day turned into a thriller. Tamatown has proved difficult to win with for the past couple of years but attracted support from 10’s into 13-2 to win the Confined. He was found wanting again as course specialist Ambitious Pursuit (7-4) held on grimly as Mic’s Delight (4-6 to 4-5 fav) threw down a determined challenge on the run in. The pair were inseparable at the post and a dead heat seemed absolutely the correct result.

REPORT ON THE DARTMOOR POINT TO POINT AT FLETE PARK, SATURDAY 18TH APRIL

A strong wind kept the marquees flapping and the temperatures down at Flete Park, but the capacity crowd warmed to some exciting racing and close finishes.

A background of pony racing proved its value as four of the eight races went to horses ridden by teenagers who had emerged from the local pony racing circuit.

Pride of place goes to 18 year old Heidi Lewis who not only enjoyed her first pointing success on Pasternak Jack, but went on to secure a double thanks to her family owned Nudge The Nugget in one of the Maiden divisions.

Heidi made all the running on Pasternak Jack to win the Restricted in the familiar colours of Dick Westacott. The winner is trained by Kayley Woollacott who said, “It was great for Heidi who works full time for us. Mr Westacott has not been well but is here today. Pasternak Jack is very capable but very quirky but he won his Maiden here and loves the track.”

Heidi completed her double with a hard fought success on Nudge The Nugget in a blanket finish to the concluding Maiden. The sturdy seven-year-old just got up to beat Kit Hill with Rainbow Stripes a fast finishing third. The winner was bought by Heidi’s parents David and Maria Lewis last summer and is trained by her mother. “He is not an easy ride but stays well and it was brilliant for Heidi,” said Maria.

Pippa Glanville, also aged 18, followed up her first two wins at her local track last year with a short head Hunt Race success on Ambitious Pursuit. Pippa’s mother Lee trains the gelding and explained, “I was disappointed with his run on Tuesday at Exeter, but hunter chasing is a bit different. He was about to be turned out but we are only ten minutes away and decided to bring him at the last minute.” The winner was given a good ride by his young jockey. She kept her cool when Robbie Henderson issued a strong challenge on hot favourite Before The War, and did well to snatch the verdict on the line.

Bryony Frost has had plenty of race-riding experience since her very successful pony racing days. Currently the reigning Devon & Cornwall lady jockeys’ title holder, Bryony made all the running to win the Conditions event on Malcolm Denmark’s Knight Pass. Trainer Nikki Frost said of this four times winner under rules, “He has been with us for six months and has been working well. He had a broken elbow fixed a couple of years ago and is a lovely, kind horse.”

Robbie Henderson, the leading male rider in the area last year, helped himself to a double with Hameldown Tor and Level Spirit. The pair are owned by The Otter Club and trained by Ed Walker. “It is our first double as owners,” commented Club spokesman Ken Edwards. “The ground came right for us and the course has been beautifully prepared.” he added. Hameldown Tor was given a perfect ride, creeping through to lead at the top of the hill before staying on to win easing up.

After Level Spirit had defied a penalty in good style in the Confined, Robbie spared a thought for fellow rider Ed Barrett, who was seriously injured in a fall at Upcott Cross last weekend. No doubt including his colleagues, he said, “Our thoughts are with Ed every morning.”

In a close finish to the first division of the Maiden, the luckless Follow The Paint was just denied by the late thrust of Sedgemoor Top Bid. Jamie Thomas is riding at the top of his form at present and conjured a renewed effort from this seven-year-old to get up near the post. Joe Tickle, who trains the winner for Danny Kenealy said, “He has been running well with no luck until now. The sunshine and good ground has helped.”

A field of 13 lined up for the two and a half miles Maiden for young horses which was won in good style by Applesolutely. Sean Houlihan was partnering his third winner of the season on this four-year old filly who looks a nice prospect for her owners Lucy Fielding-Johnson and Ces Mitford-Slade.
