Dasher bids for repeat win on Exmoor
Treborough Hill on Exmoor, overlooking the Bristol Channel, is the location for tomorrow's point-to-point meeting.
With seven races on the card, it is sure to be a great way for all the family to spend Mothering Sunday, and to add to the stunning scenery the organisers have again hired a large screen for racegoers to enjoy a close view of the racing.
Course specialist Deb's Dasher lines up in the hunt members' which kicks off the action at 12.30pm. The gelding took the confined here last season and went on to take the mixed open at Kilworthy for Richard Woollacott two weeks later. His main opponent looks to be the Leslie Jefford-trained Delta Borget who won this race last season and recently finished second to Hameldown Tor at Badbury Rings.
Next up is the Great Bradley open maiden for four to seven year olds and of the 19 entered Kudu Shine, from the in-form Kayley Jones yard, ran a good second to Devon Mead at Bishops Court last season. From the same yard Miss Tinks who is improving.

Entries in the Fallen Stock Company-sponsored confined include Dashing John who goes well for jockey Natalie Parker. The combination won the restricted here last season and could improve on their season's debut at Milborne St Andrew when they were fourth to Barneys Mate.
The Dunsters Heat Limited Mixed Open could see the prolific winning mare Sericina add to her tally having found her old form at Great Trethew for trainer/jockey Chloe Roddick. Dear Villez, another from the Chloe Roddick yard, could be the one to challenge having recently run second behind Lucette Annie in the £1,000 mixed open at Buckfastleigh for Josh Guerriero.
Blazing Whale can take the intermediate, sponsored by Exeter Racecourse. The Ed Walker-trained gelding finished third behind Double Bank and Doctor Tom at Black Forest Lodge leaving Delta Borget eight lengths in fourth.
The Mary Sanderson-trained Blinding Lights was only just denied a win by a neck to Turthen at Chipley Park and could take the restricted race here, Ladfromhighworth is another to consider after his second to Robin Will at Buckfastleigh.
The final race is the open maiden sponsored by Winston Pincombe Land Rover with 18 entries including Letmespeak, who showed recent promise when third at Chipley Park.
The course is located on B3224, the Wheddon Cross to Raleighs Cross road (post code TA23 OQW). All on-course facilities are available and entry is £20 per car load, or £10 car and driver.
