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
