South Tetcott
Upcott Cross
Monday 26th May 2008
by Lucy Johnson

THE South Tetcott attracted a total of 69 runners in the wind and rain at Upcott Cross on Bank Holiday Monday. Richard Woollacott reached a personal landmark of 150 point-to-point winners when successful in the Men’s Open on Range Rover. Owned by Lucy Dickinson and trained by Richard Barber, Range Rover relished the rain softened ground and drew clear of front running Sara Monica on the run in.

Woollacott is in cracking form at present and went on to complete a treble by winning both sections of the Open Maiden. Bethebestyoucanbe headed Ashclyst on the run in to take the first section, and 5 year old mare Steph’s Dream just held on in a close finish to the other division. Slipawayon put in a strong late run under Ryan Bliss and just failed to catch the winner after meeting interference on the run in. The winner and runner up came close together in the last few yards but any interference was deemed accidental at the subsequent stewards’ enquiry.

Polly Gundry increased her lead over closest National title rival Rachael Green to six when Long Night just got the better of Rachael’s mount Brown Cockle in the Ladies’ Open. Polly had to give best to Lucy Gardner in the Confined when her mount Ballybrown went under to front running Winter Scene. Lucy was partnering her 10 th winner of the season.

Charlotte Tizzard took the Intermediate on easy winner Coombe Hill. The winner is also trained by Charlotte for her father Alan. Coombe Hill drew clear in the home straight to beat Sliema by 20 lengths.

On Your Toes just caught front running Dutch Bill to win the 16 runner Restricted. Jimmy Cole had Dutch Bill in front from flagfall, and looked a bit unlucky as his mount hung left under pressure to be headed on the post. The winner is trained by Gordon Chambers for owner Rita Heard, and was the 11 th winner of the season for jockey Will White.
