GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP: Torrington Farmers Point-to-Point, Chapleton Barton, near Umberleigh, Saturday June 13 2015

Website_U_TF_Money_Talks_Banner

Well that is that then. We try to stretch the season out with nearly 30 meetings from November to June in Devon & Cornwall, but high summer has its way eventually.

The good thing about Umberleigh is that you can’t see where your cash went astray. Punters (and onlookers) have to circle round and round the top of the hill to get a fleeting glimpse of the horses (a bit like wagon trains circling to defend themselves in the old cowboy films).

The three-runner opener (Confined) provided a bit of a shock, although I thought that the winner Lucys Girl looked the pick of the paddock. No, I didn’t avail myself of the 12’s and 10’s available. Just Seven (7-4 to 6-4) led until falling at the 8th and looked to have gifted the race to the odds-on favourite Robin Will (1-2 to 4-7). Robin Will became Robin Won’t as they climbed the steep hill after three out and Lucys Girl swept past under Jake Bament to win by 30 lengths.

Everything seemed to be going well for 8-13 favourite Rosies Peacock after the Welsh star went on after half way. He still led at the final ditch but by the time they had gone behind the hedge he had swopped places with Findlay’s Find. That game winner of over 20 races was not going to relinquish his lead and he battled on well to repeat last year’s success as Threapwood (5’s to 9-2) mounted a late challenge.

Florence Mary (5-2 to 7-4) got favourite backers back on track in the Ladies’ Open. The mare looked to be struggling in fourth place jumping the fences along the valley as Skating Home (11-2 out to 7’s) quickened clear. Once again the stiff climb behind the hedge sorted them out and Florence emerged out in front. Lucy Mager is a decent novice rider and she kept her mount (who relishes fast ground) going to hold the challenges of Bay to Go (easy to back at 5’s) and Tiger D’Oust (7-2)

The well backed Part and Parcel (5-4 / 6-4) unseated Alex Edwards at half way in the Intermediate which seemed to leave the door open
for marginal favourite Sedgemoor Top Bid (11-8). This time the tongue tied Kawana Cove (4-1) was the one relishing the ground and took command at the second last to deny the favourite under a fine ride from Heidi Lewis. Horses for courses again.

The concluding Open Maiden sent the bookies home laughing when the Cheshire challenger Come On Louis stayed on strongly under Ollie Greenall to score unfancied at 12-1 ( 100 to 8 when I was at school). His previous form was uninspiring to say the least, but he was galvanised by Greenall, who was having his last ride before retirement, to collar Kilcolman Wizard after the latter had been 25 lengths clear at one stage.

The secretary Gillian Underhill said the The Injured Jockeys Fund bucket collection at the meeting made £1499.54 cash, plus a £1000 gift cheque

Report: Torrington Farmers Point-to-Point, Chapleton Barton, near Umberleigh, Saturday June 13 2015

Website_U_TF_Report_Banner

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

THE British point-to-point season drew to a close at Umberleigh last Saturday against the background of the traditional end of season party atmosphere. The Torrington Farmers’ meeting ended the six and a half months Devon & Cornwall area campaign stretching back to last November’s opener at Black Forest Lodge.

The prolific Welsh pointer Findlay’s Find has been a great servant to Paul and Myfanwy Miles and showed his liking for the track by repeating last year’s Men’s Open win under David Mansell. The sturdy nine-year-old was scoring for only the second time this season, but his illustrious career CV now shows 22 pointing wins plus a hunter chase.

“We nearly didn’t come after it rained on Friday because he needs fast ground and the firmer the better for him. Dave kept him to the outside for better ground and he really appreciates a test of stamina,” said Paul Miles. Jockey David Mansell is of course vastly experienced but has had a lean year by his standards. “This is my first pointing winner since Barbury Castle last December so I have doubled my score,” joked the rider.

The South Pembrokeshire qualified Rosies Peacock (John Mathias), bidding for his eighth success of the season, started favourite and was prominent until weakening up the final climb to finish last of the four runners. It was left to the Cheshire trained Threapwood (Oliver Greenall) to chase home the winner, with the only West country representative Bathwick Scanno a creditable third…

Florence Mary is another fast ground specialist and found conditions to her liking when taking the Ladies’ Open. The ten-year-old looked in trouble down the back straight but was sent past leader Skating Home after the final ditch to score readily in the colours of Jeff Fear, who described his mare as, “a late season horse.”

The winner was a third pointing success for 17-year-old jockey Lucy Mager, a recruit from pony racing, who has just completed her first year of A levels at King’s Wessex. Florence Mary’s Wedmore based trainer Emma Mellor, due to give birth in two months time, has done well to rejuvenate her charge “She has always been a monkey and was not a great eater. I have changed her diet and her therapist and she lives a bit like a mountain goat. She checks the cows and sometimes goes to the beach at Burnham,” smiled the trainer.

The Confined field was reduced to two when Just Seven crashed out after a circuit, leaving odds-on favourite Robin Will well clear. 10-1 outsider Lucys Girl looked a forlorn hope until the favourite’s stride shortened dramatically after the last ditch, allowing Lucys Girl and young rider Jake Bament to sweep past. The winner, bought cheaply at Ascot sales last July, is owned and trained by Dan Farr just two miles from the course at Atherington.

Carry On Nando finished alone in the Restricted to give Irish born jockey Sean Houlihan his fifth career winner. His mount was well clear when sole opponent Gouranga Society unseated Paul Sheard at the final fence. Owned by Jenny Luscombe and Richard Candy and trained by Gordon Chambers, the winner was also sourced from Ascot sales last July. “He needs top of the ground and would make a super schoolmaster. We gave Sean (Houlihan) his first winner in March,” reported the trainer.

Heidi Lewis is another pony racing recruit and steered Kawana Cove home in the Intermediate. Nine-year-old Kawana Cove is jointly owned by the rider and her father David, and is trained by her mother Maria. The gelding had undergone a lean spell this season after taking the Restricted on this card last June. “He doesn’t like it soft and hates tacky ground,” commented the 18-year-old jockey who works for Kayley and Richard Woollacott and was partnering her fourth career winner.

After finishing runner up on his only other mount of the day, Oliver Greenall celebrated his retirement from the saddle by winning the final race of the season on 12-1 outsider Come On Louis, a horse he also trains near Malpas, Cheshire. The rider has happy memories of Umberleigh having set the then record total of 56 winners in a season with a double there in 2008 (since equalled by his brother Tom in 2009 and recently considerably upped by Will Biddick this year). Sitting in the changing tent afterwards with some relief showing, 28-year-old Oliver with over 200 career winners to his name explained, “This horse is owned by my box driver Andrew Ralphs who couldn’t be here today. My brother Jake bought him as a four-year-old and he has had all sorts of problems. This is the first season we have had a clear run with him. My plan is to concentrate on training pointers next season and to take out a full trainers licence after that.

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – SOUTH TETCOTT POINT-TO-POINT AT UPCOTT CROSS, BANK HOLIDAY MONDAY 25th MAY 2015

Website_UC_ST_Money_Talks_Banner

The 14 bookmakers produced a strong betting market at Upcott Cross during an afternoon with some bizarre happenings.

The 14 runner Restricted became the race that never was. 50-1 chance Gleannacreim played up at the start, but the starter appeared to flag the field away. It was not until the race was taking shape with half a mile to run that a yellow flag was deployed to stop the race. A false start was cited. It was a pity that this unfortunate turn of events meant a void race because apart from everybody’s wasted efforts, a good finish was in prospect.

Course winner Brave Encounter had made most of the running, having been gambled on from early 20’s to 5-1 at the “off”. Will Biddick’s mount Earthpower had started favourite (5-2 to 2’s) and was making eye catching progress up the back straight. Myladtommy (25’s to 20’s) and the complete outsider Mongress Boy (200-1) also showed prominently when the order to stop the race was given.

The afternoon had started more positively in the eight-runner Confined when Devon General (3’s to 5-2) and Mausefalle (10-1 touched 12’) dead heated. Third placed King’s Bench (6’s into 4’s) kept on well and had run creditably on his three previous outings this season. He is capable of stepping up on this effort.

Posh Totty was the main fancy in the Men’s Open. One punter’s bet of £200 at 4-5 looked a steal, especially since the she hardened to 1-3 at the off. This time the Jack Barber trained mare found Robin Will (7-2 to 3’s) a bit too hot to handle.

Cock of the Rock, seeking his seventh successive win, opened at 1-2 in the Novice Riders’ (a bet of £2,000 to win £1,000 noted).  16-year-old Harry Cobden has impressed all season and once again timed his challenge to perfection to overcome the tough 6-year-old Le Clo de la Londe who had been backed from 6-1 to 9-2.

Ned White (7-4 fav from 2’s) has been a grand servant to his connections for many years. He jumped superbly for Leanda Tickle to win the Ladies’ Open without too much fuss. Despite showing as a 12-year-old on the race card he is actually a year older than that and retirement beckons for him at the end of the season.

I had begun to think that Baldhu High Tide was not much better than his dam North Coast Girl, who managed only one tailed off completion in her 14 races. Baldhu High Tide, sired by Baldhu Jack (who won two points in his day) had struggled with only one distant completion in his six efforts to date. However this was his day. Fitted with a hood for the first time and putting his eventing experience to good use, Baldhu High Tide had the last laugh and won quite easily in the end under Vicky Wade. He was of course easy to back at long odds (33’s to 25’s), but I saw one clairvoyant punter picking up the tidy sum of £2,000.

Preview extract:

The James Hayes Garden Macinery-sponsored Restricted race heads up the up the main race card, with entry Doyen Dynamo the likely favourite after his one length second at Kingston St Mary. Golden Squirrel was third that day, but could figure after his second to Cracking Habit at Holnicote and would look to appreciate the drying ground. Mangans Turn stayed on well to win at Littlewindsor and could well score for the Jack Barber team.

Preview extract:

Two divisions of the Open Maiden follow, and of the 20 entered in the first, the Carol Lawrence-trained Aah Bless could follow up on his eight length second to Just Seven at Vauterhill. Come On Mother from the Robert Chanin team is another to have scored a second and third at the Great Trethew meetings. The Jack Barber-trained Driftwood could be interesting on his debut run, with any market support worth noting. This race is sponsored by the Pittard family in memory of Bob Pittard.

Preview extract:

According To Harry is from a team bang in form, with Nicola Martin sending out winners most weekends. He has claims in the James Pryce Tractors-sponsored Intermediate race having run a head second to Jepeck at the Upcott meeting. Hallo Dolly made a pleasing start to her seasons campaign under Darren Edwards, when coming home five lengths second to Pasternak Jack at Vauterhill, the mare had been off the track for two years and looks likely to improve for the run.
