Preview: Mid Devon Point-to-Point at Black Forest Lodge, Sunday 28th February 2016

Website_MD16_Preview_Banner

Written by: Donna Harris

A trip back to the popular Point-to-Point horse racing course at Black Forest Lodge is a must for all country loving family folk next weekend where the Mid Devon host their meeting on Sunday Feb 28th. Pony racing heads up the action at 12 noon and 12.30pm with two pony races on offer.

The main seven race card follows at 1pm and has attracted over 100 entries with the Open Maiden race already having been divided. The feature race of the day looks to be the Tozers Solicitors-sponsored Men’s Open race with ten quality entries headed by the Devon based trainer Emma Oliver’s Double Bank. This 13 year old dual Taunton Hunter Chase winner has won previously at this course and ran well when four lengths third at Wadebridge carrying top weight earlier this month. Those entered to take him on are outside raiders Premier Portrait already on a seasons hat-trick, and would have been four from four had young jockey Gus Levinson not been disqualified for not weighing in. Doctor Braveheart another on a hat-trick of wins is trained by David Brace who has a good strike rate at this course. Tony Star looks an interesting entry having previously been trained by Phillip Hobbs who has a Chase win under rules when ridden by Richard Johnson at Ludlow to his credit.

The Molyneaux Financial Planning-sponsored Ladies Open race also has quality entries with Devon based Hunter Chase veteren Coombe Hill entered. Trained and ridden by Millie Wonnacott. Coombe Hill has a total of six Hunter Chase wins and eleven Point-to-Point wins to his credit, and was narrowly denied a further win when a head second here at the January meeting.The Keith Cumings -trained What About Will should be considered having won his Restricted race at this course last season under jockey Vicky Wade. Outside raiders looking to challenge could be recent Wadebridge winner Sobre Tresor having won by twelve lengths ahead of Ray Diamond and Get It On from the Angela Rucker team who also catches the eye having run a good second in a Ladies Open at Barbury in December.

The Confined race sponsored by supporters of the Mid Devon could go the way of the Dean Summersby-trained Robin De Souza, a winner of all three of his Point starts to date including a win at this track when winning his restricted having stayed on well under Darren Edwards. Also entered is the Sue Popham-trained Iron Chancellor, a Hunter Chase winner who loves the soft going and ran a neck second at Wadebridge earlier this month when sent off odds-on favorite under Sean Houlihan. Whenharrymetsally from the Keith Cumings team is another catching the eye, having won well at Chipley Park in January when beating odds on favorite Posh Totty that day.

Sedgemoor Top Bid could fly the flag for the area if snatching the Intermediate race to follow up on his neck win at Wadebridge under jockey Lee Drowne.  Those looking to challenge could be Chipley Park winner Stony Road, Thorpe Lodge winner Minella Friend and Paddycards who ran second here in the intermediate race at the last meeting. Commanche Conflict looks to be a new recruit for the Alice Plume team and has shown some good place form in Intermediate company last season. The Intermediate race is sponsored by B.J. Barkwell & Sons and the Lyndridge Residential Home.

In the Subaru Restricted race the Harriet Brown-trained Creative Inerta could go well having won his maiden race here in January under jockey Ben Clarke, the combination were travelling well at Barbury two weeks ago before falling three out. Itchymei’mscratch from the Gareth Moore team is another suggestion having finished second in a 17- runner race at Cocklebarrow in January.

Two divisions of the Open Maiden end the days events, those entries having shown promise in the first division are Kilcoman Wizard having clocked up four seconds last season and deserves a win soon, Goodnight Sweetheart after his four lengths second at Larkhill earlier this month and the Ben Clarke-trained Looking Glass for his seconds at Wadebridge and Barbury. With Dark Gesture catching the eye in the second division of the Maiden, having run second here at the last meeting and looks sure to improve for the run, Nothing Personal and Troubleshot are two others showing improvement and could go close. Sponsors for the Open Maiden races are Devon Marquees.

The course offers excellent viewing, bookies, bar, hot refreshments and food, rail side parking for the disabled and many trade stands.

Entrance is £10 per person up to a maximum of £30 per car with five passengers. Children under 16 free. Dogs on leads welcome.

Course is located at Kenton near Exeter off A380 Postcode EX6 AHR

Going Update from Linda Matthews

Saturday 6th February 2016, 15:57

Wadebridge is ON tomorrow.

The Clerk of the course is there now and says that the going is soft

If the dip is too soft tomorrow they may take out fence 8, otherwise the course is looking fine.

Can lorries try and park on the tarmac roads where possible.

Friday 5th February 2016

The Clerk of the Course has been on the course today and reports that the going is still good to soft, soft in places.

Wednesday 3rd February 2016

The going today is good to soft, soft in places. 2 fences have been moved onto fresh ground and the course has recovered well with a good covering of grass.

The big change is that we’ve had to move the paddock today. The RC showground were concerned that the original paddock has not recovered well and they need it to be in good condition for cattle ring at the RC Show. So we’ve made a new paddock around the back of the Exhibition Hall. This means that horses will enter via a gate directly from the lorry park and leave the paddock through gates at the bottom with only a very short distance to the course near the Open Ditch. Spectators will have access to the paddock around the lower end of the hall and still be on hard surfaces. One advantage is that horses will not have to go through the gate with spectators, nor share the ramp near the car park.

We might have the presentation area inside this time, especially if the weather is bad. I’ve ordered a “Wadebridge Racing” banner which we can display in a designated area between the office and the hospitality area. This would be easy for jockeys and we could have a table for trophies and mementoes. If we decide to do this we’ll announce it regularly.

The presentations will definitely be indoors as the microphone won’t get reception in the new paddock. Linda will try and get one of her helpers to let trainers know how to access the new paddock. The showground staff have suggested that lorries and trailers access the parking area via the top end and drive downhill.

Preview extract:

It is the turn of the Western Hunt to host their Point-to-Point meeting at the Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge this coming Sunday February 7th. 60 entries have received for the six race card.

There is a huge covered barn containing on course facilities such as hot food, refreshments, bar, bookies, trade stands, and a big screen which is sponsored by Reg Hamble & Cole and Rayment & White for those wishing to watch the racing close up. With pre-parade paddock and great track side viewing only a few yards away for fresh air fans. There are excellent disabled facilities.

Entrance to the course is £10 per adult up to a maximum of £30 per car. Children under 16 free.

The course is located off A39 West of Wadebridge. Post code PL27 7JE. For entries and form check out the Devon & Cornwall Point-to-Point website

GRANVILLE’S BETTING GOSSIP – EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015

Website_BD_E_Money_Talks_Banner

IT was about a score draw in the end between the bookmakers and punters at Bratton Down.

The bookis drew first blood when course winner Bernshaw was well beaten in the opener. He was a solid 1-2 favourite after touching 4-6. I thought he looked plenty fit enough in the preliminaries, but he was beaten a long way out. The winner, The Mystro, was second best in the market at 2-1 and lost his maiden tag in some style.

The 10-runner Restricted looked quite an open event and they went 5-2 A Real Cliché who opened at 3’s, Will Biddick’s mount ran well but nobody had any answers to Beaufort winner The Flying Doc (solid 4-1) who cruised up to the leaders on the home turn and won on the bit. She looks a decent mare and can progress from here. I backed runner-up Winter Garden (9-2 touched 5.s). This six-year-old had won nicely at Trebudannon and ran quite well in the DBS bumper at Aintree. He stays well and is one to keep an eye on for the future

Claire Hitch has done well with Minella Fifty who won an Irish point but was evidently not easy to train in the Jonjo O’Neill yard after changing hands for an enormous sum. He is in good form at present and did well to beat the useful Presentandcorrect (11-4 from 5-2) in the Ladies’ Open.

The Midnight Legend six-year-old Whataknight has gone from strength to strength this year and took his upgrading to Open class in his stride. He is a workmanlike type with plenty of speed and looks a natural to progress to better things. 5-4 did not last long and he was a solid 4-6 at the off. Wincanton hunter chase winner Parkam Jack (5-2 ), bidding for his fourth win of the season, found his 7 lbs penalty just too much. .

Favourite backers soon knew their fate in the Intermediate when Credit Crunched (2-1) ploughed through the fifth fence and unseated Johny Bailey. What About Will had found it hard to win an Intermediate since his Black Forest win in January, but looks more street wise now and drew right away under Vicky Wade up the final climb to score easily here,

The Maiden was divided on the day with declarations just one above the safety factor. The slightly quicker division went to the Kayley Woollacott mare Spendajennie (4’s out to 6’s). She had been lightly raced since I gave a favourable note to her at Wadebridge in January, but she kept on well up the hill to hold Master Max (5-4 fav touched 6-4).

The Jack Barber trained four-year-old Brandevin (evens out to 11-8 favourite) took the other division to record his trainer’s 50th win of the season. Brandevin fetched £30,000 at Brightwells Cheltenham breeze up sales last December and had a lot to live up to. He was very green and was given an exemplary quiet educational ride by Will Biddick . He probably didn’t know he was in a race until his rider asked him to quicken after the last and had a good look at the crowd as he mastered his rivals on meeting the higher ground. I expect he will finish up under rules with Paul Nicholls.

REPORT ON THE EXMOOR POINT-TO-POINT AT BRATTON DOWN, SUNDAY 31st MAY 2015

Website_BD_E_Report_Banner

WRITTEN BY GRANVILLE TAYLOR

OVERNIGHT rain gave way to a cool, blustery afternoon at Bratton Down where it was business as usual with a double for the unstoppable combination of trainer Jack Barber and jockey Will Biddick.

The progressive Whataknight was given a typically patient Biddick ride to win the Men’s Open. “He was rushed off his feet for the first two miles so I had to be patient. You can’t go quick and keep going quick here,” explained the rider on the verge of securing his fourth consecutive National championship. Six-year-old Whataknight remains unbeaten in his four races this season.

Trainer Jack Barber has enjoyed a remarkable season in winning his first trainers championship, increasing his winning tally from 14 last year to 50 this season. His half century came up when Brandevin, making his racecourse debut, overcame greenness to win a section of the Maiden which was divided on the day.

Once again Biddick nursed and educated his mount from the back until swooping to lead up the final climb. “He was really green and ticks every box. There is room for improvement in him,” reported Biddick, who was enjoying his 66th winner of the season and whose career successes in the saddle had topped the 300 mark at Stratford just a few days before. Four-year-old Brandevin was purchased at the Cheltenham breeze up sales last December by Tom Malone. He is now in the ownership of Colm Donlon and Richard Webb. “He has needed time but he works well and jumps well,” said Jack Barber.

The race was marred when Jo Buck was fired into the ground when her mount Strong Hurricane fell at the second fence. Jo was concussed and spent the night in Barnstaple hospital. She was reported to have facial injuries but thankfully a scan revealed no broken bones.

Biddick’s mount Master Max was runner up in the other Maiden division won by Matt Hampton on six-year-old mare Spendajennie. Bought at the Tattersalls Derby sales as a four-year-old, the Old Vic mare is owned by Andrew and Hannah Broggio and is trained by Kayley Woollacott who described her charge as, “ A lovely madam who works and jumps well at home,” Kayley was achieving her 25th pointing winner of the season, in addition to a hunter chase.

Claire Hitch trains just a few miles from the course and saddled Minella Fifty to win the Ladies’ Open after a battle with the consistent Presentandcorrect. The winning rider, 19-year-old Charlotte Prichard, is looking forward to three months working holiday in New Zealand during the summer.

Bernshaw has proved something of a Bratton Down course specialist for the Claire Hitch stable, but could only finish third on this occasion in the Hunt race behind The Mystro. Lee Drowne, who works in the Nigel Hawke yard, sent his mount to the front at the third last before drawing right away from Father Owen. Placed over hurdles in Ireland for Mouse Morris, the winner is now with Keith Cumings, and had been knocking at the door in his English points this season.

The Flying Doc treated her nine Restricted rivals with disdain. The mare was cruising coming to the last and Robbie Henderson only had to let out an inch of rein coming up the hill to overcome A Real Cliché and Winter Garden. “She is a pocket rocket and jumped brilliantly,” confirmed the jockey. Ed Walker bought the Dr Massini seven-year-old for only 4,000 euros at Tattersalls, Ireland last August. She had scored at Didmarton on her English debut in March where she was ridden by Ed Barrett, who subsequently suffered serious injuries in a fall at the Eggesford a few weeks later.

Favourite backers soon knew their fate when long distance traveller Credit Crunched blundered and unseated Johny Bailey at the fifth fence in the Intermediate which was run in memory of Donna Kingdon. What About Will took command entering the final circuit and strode clear after the last. Neil Harris saddled the winner who was partnered by Vicky Wade for her father Keith. “He has sharpened up his jumping after his two recent Hunter chases,” said the trainer.
