Preview : Mid Devon, Black Forest Lodge Sunday February 2

A great family day out is on offer at the Mid Devon Point-to-Point meeting at Black Forest Lodge, Kenton this Sunday February 2nd.

Pony racing heads up the action at 11 am, where young jockey’s get their first chance this season to experience racing on a proper track. Sponsored again by Mole Avon, there are two pony races before the main seven race card which starts at 12 noon. 128 entries have been received.

With the addition of AGA sponsoring the Ladies’ race, with the first three past the post qualifying for the £10,000, 3m4f, AGA Final Hunter Chase, at Stratford in May, there are no surprises that this race has attracted a quality field. Byerley Bear from the Robert Chanin team will be looking for his fourth consecutive win, having come home seven lengths ahead of Mobaasher here, and goes well for either lady jockey’s Jo Buck or Leanda Tickle. Another entry, Rowdy Rampage, from the David Brace Welsh raiders could be the one to deny Byerley Bear, with seven Point wins and two Chase wins to his credit, unless connections choose to run him in the Men’s Open.

Another feature race is the Men’s Open, sponsored by J Edwards Sellars, which is a qualifying race for the Bonham Mens Open race at Cheltenham in April. This race could go to Bobs Law , a previous 12 length winner of a Hunter Chase at Ffos Lass, ahead of second place Tricky Trickster, and also ran a good second at Barbury Castle last season, when two and a half lengths behind Cottage Oak. The Shelia Crow-trained mare Fruit Fayre has won six out of eight, including a win here last February when six lengths ahead of Molland Gayle.

The Confined race is sponsored by The Farriers. Blazing Whale has to be respected after his win at Chipley Park when he won the Intermediate for the Edward Walker team. Ned White won here in January and has been consistently placed for owner Jaquie Elliott and from the current area leading trainers yard Robert Chanin’s. Iron Chancellor from the Sue Popham yard is another that cannot be left out of the equation, after his distance win in the Confined at Wadebridge

With the Connolly’s Red Mills Intermediate being another Cheltenham qualifying race, the first four past the post will be
eligible to run in the Hunter Chase final in April, Paddycards under jockey Claire Hart ran well in third behind Blazing Whale at Chipley Park, having weakened approaching the last fence. The Lee Power-trained Waddington Hero is another showing decent form when second here behind Tachbury in December. Welstonedruid and Ladfromhighworth are two other suggestions that have run well at this course.

Tozers Solicitors have sponsored the Restricted race in which Un Ami was only just denied a win at Chipley Park when a short head behind Romassor two weeks ago and has to be a leading factor here. The Camilla Scott-trained Honours Insight had a comfortable win here early in January under 22 year old Steve Croft and the partnership look set to build on that performance.

Two divisions of the Open Maiden wrap up the days events. In the first division Village Whispers kept on well in second here at the early January meeting, when coming home one and a half lengths behind Best Bide Quiet, and Bamboleo came an eye catching second at Chipley Park three lengths behind Big George. This division is sponsored by The Old Thatch, Cheriton Bishop.

In the second division which is jointly sponsored by B.J. Barkwell & Sons and Lyndridge Care Residential, the Matthew Barber-trained Canshetrain was unfortunate when falling having lead on the final circuit at Cockleburrow, and The Gunner Brady ran well at Larkhill finishing two lengths behind Un Ami.
