There’s Point-to-Point on Bank Holiday Monday (May 5) at Vauterhill, High Bickington, where The Stevenstone will be hosting their first event for two years at the course, writes Donna Harris.

The first race is off at 2pm, with six races attracting nearly 100 entries.

In the Frilly Frocks sponsored members race the Neil Harris-trained King Of Alcatraz looks the likely favourite, he won the intermediate final Hunter Chase at Exeter last year, and has not been out of the frame so far this year under jockey Vicky Wade, including a second in a Hunter Chase in March again at Exeter. Just Seven was impressive when winning at Trebudannon also under Vicky Wade, and it will be interesting to see which horse she rides.

Bob Lewis could be well fancied in the restricted race after his second at Buckfastleigh. Minella Web from the Kayley Woollacott team showed promise when winning her maiden at Badbury Rings in February, and is another suggestion.

The Holiday Cottages-sponsored mixed open could go to the Karyn Heard-trained Cottage Acre, having won impressively at Kilworthy when jockey Bryony Frost drove him home two lengths ahead of his rivals. Kayley Woollacott’s Steeltown was a winner at Cotley and Kingston St Mary, so could well score his treble here.

Suggestions for the confined race would be Bradley Brook after his wins at Upcott Cross and Kilworthy, and the Keith Cumings-trained Whenharrymetsally after his win at Great Trethew.

Whenharrymetsally also holds an entry in the E J Wade & Son sponsored intermediate race, and could take on Upcott Cross winner My Rebel. Camilla Scott has entered Soul Native, who holds strong claims after his win at Cothelstone, coming home a head in front of Red Penny who is a winner since.

The open maiden race has attracted 24 entries of which Myladtommy, Pyleigh Princess and Ahh Bless are some suggestions.

The course offers great viewing of the undulating track . All facilities including hot refreshments, bar, bookies and trade stands. It is located next door to the Vauterhill Stud.

Entrance is £10 car anddriver, £20 car and passengers. Location is signed from A377, A3124 and B3217. Postcode EX37 9BT
