Woodland Pytchley Evening Races – Report

The Midlands Area season drew to a close with a rearranged evening meeting hosted by the Woodland Pytchley at Dingley.

There was all to play for at the top of the Midlands Area Championships, especially in the Gentleman Jockey section where Dale Peters had several rides with which to overtake Philip Armson in the overall standings.

Peters started that campaign with a bang by winning the opener, the Hunt Members Race, with Toby Hunt’s Done A Runner. Although they started as big odds-on favourites there were times  when 8/1 shot High Hopper, the mount of Rory Bevin, might have worried them over the last mile. High Hopper finished second by 3 lengths or so, Knowwhentofoldem third behind them.

The maiden for younger horses which followed was an attritional race, with only three of the eight runners completing the course. Halloween Harry (Z. Baker) took the spoils in this one, beating Fenjack (Jack Andrews) by a length. Both seemed to have a chance approaching the last but the winner had more to give in the run in. Third in this one went to Linkenholt, leader for large parts of the race, who dropped off in the final stages.

The Ladies Open provided an excellent finish, with three horses crossing the line within a couple of lengths. Much of the running had been done by Can Mestret (Gina Andrews) who had led from the end of the first lap until headed on the run in. This left For ‘n’ Against (Izzy Marshall) and Extreme Appeal (Tabitha Worsley) slightly ahead and competing the final few yards. In the end it was Extreme Appeal who won it by a neck to give Johnny Weatherby the win for his Preston Lodge Stud team.

The Gredley family’s Just Cause was the runaway victor of the Mens Open, with Jack Andrews in the saddle on this occasion. This was an impressive win, albeit from a well-rated horse, pulling clear of the field with a couple still to jump and drawing well clear to record an eleven-length winning margin. Second placed Dido tried to chase the winner over the final fences but didn’t have the same reserves in the tank. Frank A Million got the third.

Alice Stevens did her chances of winning the National Novice Rider title no harm when she piloted Derksen to victory in the 12-runner PPORA Club Members Race for Novice Riders. It was the fourth win of the season for this combination and the horses second win from two runs at Dingley, the other under Tabitha Worsley. Starting as favourite, Derksen was never far from the lead and, although chased home by Dusk Till Dawn and Skyhill Allstar, never looked in danger by this stage.

Joint top of the Novice Ladies with Alice Stevens prior to this meeting was Isabel Williams, so the former’s win in the previous race kept the pressure on the latter and her Restricted ride Burn Baby Byrne. The five-year-old didn’t let her down, though, as they took the lead over the last fence and won comfortably from long time leader Staple Head and Dale Peters, in second. Isabel’s win here keeps the title race alive for the Novice Ladies, while Dale’s second place secured the area title for him, after his win in the first.

Finally the last race provided one of the best of the evening, with all three runners in contention entering the final stages. Favourite Chosen Tribe (Tom McClorey) was joined at the second last by Celestino (James King) before both were caught at the last by a rallying Milzipa and Alex Edwards who pulled away in the straight to win by a couple of lengths.

The Midlands Area would like to thank all of our supporters, both on the track and off the track, for your continued dedication to the sport this season. The weather has presented many challenges and to have enough horses and spectators to run an evening meeting in the second week of June is testament to all of their hard work.

Fitzwilliam (Milton) Race Round Up

The Fitzwilliam Milton Point to Point at Dingley Racecourse 2018  102

An enthusiastic crowd enjoyed a good day’s racing at Dingley on Saturday 26th May as the Fitzwilliam hosted the second of three fixtures at the Market Harborough course.

The first race on the card was the Hunt Members and was won by in-form local jockey and trainer Dale Peters and favourite Bi Quini Tiep, who finished alone. A second win on the bounce for this combination.

The PPORA Club Members Conditions race which followed this was won gamely by Rendezvous Peak (Miss A. Stevens) who made the running and hung on well to take the victory  by a length from favourite Bavard Court (Miss L. Allan). According To Trev took third having come back from a long way back.

Pre-race interest produced joint favourites for the Mens Open race, which came next. Aunty Joan (James Martin) and Jimmy The Jetplane (James Jackson-Stops) went off at 13/8 and indeed did prove to be the ones to beat. Aunty Joan managed to hold on and record the victory by two and a half lengths in a good finish, with Pay The King third. This was Aunty Joan’s first outing in open company and proved to be more than up to it. Definitely one to watch.

Five lined up in the Ladies Open.  Midnight King continued his run of form under Claire Hardwick to beat the race favourite Ravethebrave and Izzie Marshall into second place. Sa Kaldoun was another to feature, and finished third, but neither second nor third place horses looked to have enough to overcome the winner.

The restricted race was won very impressively by Bengo, ridden by Archie Wright. Owner Nick Wright was delighted. “After a long lay off we were pleased with his run at Fakenham where he was beaten by a good horse. He then disappointed at Northaw next time, so we were delighted with the Dingley run on good ground which seemed to suit him.” Cornerman was second, 25 lengths back, The Glover just behind them.

The open maiden race provided a very close finish between Bobs Call (P. Armson) and Mr Snuffles (Tommie O’Brien), the former taking it by a neck. Philip Armson is making a real impression this season and is clearly going to be a jockey to watch in the future.

Tommie O’Brien wasn’t to remain disappointed for very long because he won the two and a half mile maiden which followed. His mount, Elyaqim, held off a late charge from second placed Chosen Tribe (Tom McClorey), with their 21lb weight allowance no doubt an advantage.

The next race meeting at Dingley will be the rescheduled Woodland Pytchley on Saturday 9th June – gates will open at 2 pm and racing begins at 4 pm. Tickets online now – click here to save on advance bookings.
