Preview: Black Forest Club Point-to-Point, Black Forest Lodge, Sunday 30th November 2014

Website_Preview_Banner

THE wait is over, as this weekend Point-to-Point horse racing resumes after the summer break. The Black Forest Club host their meeting on Sunday November 30 at Black Forest Lodge, Kenton, nr Exeter. This is the first of 27 fixtures scheduled for the Devon & Cornwall Area, and the stunning location of this track provides excellent viewing from a natural grandstand. With now seven races on the card attracting a total of 108 entries, competition is bound to be hot, with trainers and jockeys keen to get their first points on the championship tables.

The action kicks off at 12 noon with the  2m 4f Open Maiden race for four and five-year-olds , kindly sponsored by Dyson, Quaintance & Strange. Of the 19 entered, High Priority from the Keith Cumings team could be favorite if National Champion jockey Will Biddick gets the leg up. Miss Weld ran well when second at Trebudannon last season and is now trained by Lee Glanville for daughter Pippa to ride, and Jepeck from the Kayley Woollacott yard ran a good third in a Bumper in the summer.

Next up is The Black Forest Lodge Club Members race, sponsored by Mrs Angela Webber. This has attracted plenty of outside raiders including two from the David Brace Welsh team Dbobe and Cock Of The Rock. The latter won this race last season and went on to score six wins for the season. Joe The Trucker for trainer Zoe Hammond won his maiden and restricted at this course. Another entry Welstonedruid is a course specialist and is from leading area trainer Robert Chanin’s team, with Whenharrymetsally who could also go well for the Cumings team and has won with jockey Matt Hampton on board.

Heltor Ltd have sponsored the Restricted race in which nineteen are entered, of these Bob The Butcher is another who could make the trip down from Wales. Having won his maiden here on holding ground for the Brace team. Raffa, What About Will and Glacial Oscar are other suggestions having run well last season.

The Strutt & Parker Mixed Open has attracted the entry of the Fred Hutsby-trained Penmore Mill who destroyed the field when winning this race last season by 15 lengths under jockey Tom Ellis. Other entries Double Bank, Gail Force, Golan Way and Silver Token are all rated over 100 which could make this the feature race of the day.

Two divisions of the Open Maiden follow, suggestions are Itchec and Way Before Dawn, this race is sponsored by J Edwards Sellars. In the second division, Who’s Jeff used to be in training with Phillip Hobbs and may take to Pointing well, he is owned by David Brace and trained by Amber Griffiths.

Exeter Racecourse sponsor the Intermediate race, which is a qualifier for the Hunter Chase final at Exeter racecourse on Tuesday 5th May. The winning horse will be eligible to compete in the Connolly’s Red Mills Intermediate Point-to-Point Championship Final Hunter Chase at Cheltenham on Wednesday 29th April. Entered is The Mythologist who  had shown a good turn of foot when winning his maiden by six lengths at Treborough Hill, and then battled on well when winning by a head at Ston Eston on his only other outing last season under Robbie Henderson.

All on course facilities are on offer, hot food, refreshments, bar, bookies and course side disabled parking. Entrance is £10 per person, max £30 per car, children free. Dog on leads welcome. Course is located at Kenton, nr Exeter (off A380 – EX6 8HR)

REPORT ON THE SILVERTON POINT-TO-POINT AT BLACK FOREST LODGE SUNDAY 12TH JANUARY 2014

BONHAMS MEN’S OPEN:

This race was the first qualifier in a series of 20 races culminating in the final at Cheltenham in April.  It featured two of the best point-to-pointers in the country in the shape of the prolific nine-year-old Penmore Mill and the Cheshire based What A Laugh, who had finished runner up in last year’s prestigious Lady Dudley Cup before a hunter chase success at Aintree.

The Warwickshire gelding Penmore Mill stripped fit with the benefit of his course victory last month. He was always odds-on in the ring with What A Laugh trading at around 7-4. This classy duo dominated the final stages of the race. Tom Ellis had Penmore Mill in front at an early stage and was chased by What A Laugh coming down the hill for the final time. I had the impression that What A Laugh was travelling better crossing the third last, but Penmore Mill would not be denied and held the inside position as his rival had to be switched to challenge round the final bend. Both horses jumped the last well but it was Penmore Mill who just proved the stronger on the run to the line. “He had to prove he was a good horse to go to the (Cheltenham) Foxhunter and did so today,” said owner Ken Hutsby, who added that a Musselburgh hunter chase would be his next race providing the ground is good. The runner up ran a gallant race in defeat with jockey Josh Guerriero reporting that, “he will improve for the race.”

LADIES’ OPEN (Charles Stanley)

Byerley Bear justified favouritism to capture his third Ladies’ Open in four weeks, this time with Leanda Tickle in the saddle. This tough and consistent nine-year-old jumped well to hold the late challenge of last year’s winner Mobaasher and King of Alcatraz.. Byerley Bear’s trainer Robert Chanin enjoyed a treble on this card last season and went on to repeat the feat this time. “The original plan for Byerley Bear was a Newbury hunter chase but he was bucking and kicking after being turned out on Monday and Tuesday after his Wadebridge win and the owner (Roger Knowles) was keen to come here”, said the trainer.

HUNT RACE (Philip Saunders Building Contractors Ltd)

Welstonedruid had set the Chanin ball rolling in a match for the hunt race, ridden by Robert’s son Ian who is now assistant trainer to Nick Williams in North Devon. Owners Andrew and Sue Knox have a nice staying prospect in Welstonedruid, who had won his maiden on this track last year. “He is a progressive horse who doesn’t show much at home but is different in a horse race,” explained the trainer.

INTERMEDIATE (J Edward Sellars)

The rain which had set in during the afternoon was quite intensive during this event. It did not stop Thorverton trainer Robert Chanin from saddling his third winner of the afternoon and his sixth of the season from just seven runners. The tongue tied Ned White took up the running at the second fence and strode clear of his five rivals on the final circuit. This time it was Tom Chanin in the saddle, pushing his mount well clear to score by 20 lengths from Ladfromhighworth.

OPEN MAIDEN DIVISION 1 (Jewson)

A field of 15 faced the starter in the first Open Maiden which saw Jo Buck ride her third winner of the season on Best Bide Quiet. Jo is edging towards her half century of pointing winners, and gave a confident ride to this improving six-year-old who appreciated every yard of this trip. “He was a bit weak last year but we always thought he was a nice horse,” said Lisa Jefford, who shares ownership with her trainer husband Leslie alongside Leslie’s father David and Stewart Bradley. Best Bide Quiet is by the Epsom Derby runner-up City Honours out of a winning Irish hurdler. He cost 4,500 euros at Goffs sales as a three-year-old.

OPEN MAIDEN DIVISION 2(Tincknell Devon Fuels)

PART 1

The second division of the Maiden had to be split on the day with the times becoming progressively slower as the rain set in. Honours Insight gave 22-year-old Steve Croft his first winner. Steve gave a fine ride to this Milan gelding, trained by Camilla Scott for the aptly named Cash for Honours syndicate. The Liverpool born jockey said, “He blew up and galloped on. I have had 11 rides and worked for the Scott’s for four years. I look after Honours Insight as well as Melodic Rendezvous in the same ownership.

PART 2

Cashwell put up an astonishing performance to win this division ridden by Stratford Upon Avon based Will Telfer.  This Steve Flook trained gelding had been off the track for 22 months after showing only modest form over hurdles for Nigel Twiston-Davies. The seven-year-old was a fence in front at half way and never looked like being caught despite a few sloppy jumps. Connections have a Leicester hunter chase in mind.

RESTRICTED (Simpkins Edwards)

It would not be Black Forest Lodge without a winner from Wales and the Llangeinor qualified Patricktom Boru  came from over the bridge to win the 14-runner Restricted. Evan David sent his mount to the front after the final ditch and held on well as Soul Native and The Crazy Crab gradually closed on him. “I bought him over the phone last July when he was withdrawn from the sales. “He was a naughty boy when he came but that has all changed and he loves his work now,” commented his Bridgend owner/trainer Roger Willcox., who was enjoying his first success at Black Forest Lodge.

MONEY TALKS

The former Laura Young trained Patricktom Boru was one of the outsiders in the Restricted but still attracted good support at long odds. Bets of £50 each way at both 16-1 and 20-1 were recorded.In the same race the Glamorgan challenger Donttellmethat was gambled on from 8-1 into 9-2. He ran quite an eye catching race under Nick Williams before being pulled up and looks sure to regain the losses.There was minimal support for the favourite Mister Teddy, pushed out from 4-5 to 11-10. Tom Ellis pulled the Warwickshire horse up in the closing stages which prompted a stewards’ query. The jockey said the horse was never travelling and had lost his action coming down the hill.

Minella Web was the best backed runner in the first Maiden. This ex-Irish youngster was seen as high as 10-1 before being sent off at 4’s. The Kings Theatre gelding ran on well to finish third and will step up on this.

The bookmakers’ area resembled a swamp as the rain continued to pour down before the last race. The Cheshire gelding Mahfal started favourite in a light betting heat but was pulled up after half way.  His background is interesting. Although his current connections picked him up cheaply he had fetched 190,000 euros as a yearling which pales into insignificance when his half sister sold for 700,000 guineas last month.

Preview : Silverton Foxhounds – Black Forest Lodge, Sunday January 12

NOW that the storms have subsided, we can once again enjoy some fantastic Point to Point horse-racing without having to dodge the wind and rain. The second of three meetings takes place at Black Forest Lodge this weekend, where the Silverton Foxhounds host the event at Kenton near Exeter. With seven races on offer and a start time of 12 noon, over one hundred entries have been received.

The day includes a feature race, the Bonhams Mens Open, a qualifier for the series final at Cheltenham in April, there are no surprises in the class field of horses entering here. The Fred Hutsby-trained Penmore Mill has only been beaten once in seven races when Doctor Kingsley got the better by four lengths at Guilsborough, and an easy win here in December when jockey Tom Ellis came home 15 lengths ahead of his pursuers. Another entry, What A Laugh out of the Gary Hanmer yard has also only been beaten once in Points when three lengths behind Sybarite, and has an Aintree Chase to add to his form.
Phil Saunders Building Contractors sponsor the Members race, in which Robert Chanin trains five of the six entered, and may well run Welstonedruid for owners Andrew and Sue Knox. Having won the Restricted here in December, jockey Ian Chanin will be hoping to fend off the challenge of his brother Tom, who could get the leg up on Ashclyst for trainer Les Jefford. The partnership won a Mens Open at Cothelstone last season.
The Restricted race is sponsored by Simpkins Edwards Chartered Accountants, and has attracted twenty-four entries. The lightly raced Mister Teddy from the Fred Hutsby yard is highly rated having run fourth behind Cottage Oak at Haydock last year and second in a 17-runner Hunter Chase at Towcester previously. He had won his Maiden here in 2009. Ladfromhighworth from the Camilla Scott yard is another having won his maiden here when making virtually all for jockey Vicky Wade, the partnership was unlucky to be disqualified at Cothelstone when coming home a neck ahead of Kostaquarta.
Charles Stanley sponsors the Ladies Open, Hey Porter under jockey Jane Williams won a Ladies Open at Garthorpe last March for trainer Diane Williams, Byerley Bear will probably have a week off after his win at Wadebridge last weekend, and King Of Alcatraz won here last season and is sure to come on for his third at Wadebridge in December.
Division One of the Open Maiden is sponsored by Tinknell Devon Fuels, suggestions would be the Rosemary Partridge-trained Tallanstown Boy, and Silver Man from the Steve Flook yard after his third at Cottenham in December. Also entered is the Zara Phillips-trained Youhavetoo, having transferred from the Zoe Hammond yard.
The second division of the Open Maiden sponsored by Jewsons could see the Camilla Scott-trained Honours Insite take this after his previous second at this course.
J Edwards Sellars, sponsor the Intermediate in which Ladfromhighworth could atone if not entering the earlier race, challenging could be the ten year old Luso sired gelding Quantum Theory.
Entrance £20 per car or £10 per car and driver. Hot food,bookmakers,bar and trade stands are on course. With ringside viewing for the disabled.
Location is Kenton, near Exeter off A380. Postcode EX6 8HR.
