The great turnout for the course walk heralded an equally impressive field for the race with 16 of the 22 entries standing their ground.   A well judged race saw  Billy Aprahamian and Bayley’s Dream in front at the last before galloping determinedly to the line successfully repelling Just Cause (Tim Gredley) who persistently harried the winners to the post

At Milborne St Andrew owner-trainer-rider Jack Veysey, a Devon based farrier,   claimed his 5th career win on board The Dapper Fox – the horse he had ridden to achieve all 4 previous successes –  in the Countryside Alliance PPORA Novice Riders’ Race

Meanwhile at the Western Hunt at Wadebridge, PPORA Rider Rep Darren Edwards rode a treble.  The Two Amigos, followed up on his previous 2 wins at the course this term – the last of which brought Darren to his 250 Career Win Landmark – to secure this week’s Intermediate, Ralloo Rocket provided a quick follow up in the Maiden scoring at the first time of asking for trainer Emma Summersby, with Robin De Souza trained by Emma’s husband Dean justifying favouritism to complete the hattrick in the Men’s Open
