09 March 2011 Preview: Dulverton Farmers - Treborough Hill
by Lucy Johnson
A big screen at the Dulverton Farmer's meeting at Treborough Hill will ensure racegoers can see all the action on Sunday where seven races get underway at 1.00pm.
Baroness Ann Mallalieu will also be present having agreed to do the lottery draw which is a fund raiser for medical expenses and carries a first prize of £250.
The Members race kicks off proceedings and sure to be favourite is Prince de Bersy, second on his last outing at Great Trethew.
Dunster Heat Ltd is sponsors of the Mens Open race which is run over 3m4f and among the Entries is Come What Augustus, who also holds an entry in the Christie Foxhunter at the Cheltenham Festival next Friday.
Kilrogan was well beaten by Sericina at Wadebridge but he's capable of winning the Ladies Open or the Confined, depending on where connections decide to run him.
The Intermediate is a qualifier for the final at Exeter Racecourse on May 3rd and Arbour Hill, who has finished second three times and third once this season, will be a warm order to win.
In the Restricted race, those with chances include Obamarama, who won a Maiden at Black Forest Lodge and Therecessionbeater could yet return to form.
Entries in the Maiden include the Leslie Jefford-trained Tamatown who was second at Buckfastleigh last month.
The course is situated on the B3224 on the Wheddon Cross to Raleighs Cross Road (postcode TA23 0QW).
Entrance is £20.00 per car and occupants, £10.00 car and driver, and £7.00 pedestrians.
