THE Dulverton Farmer'spoint to point meeting takes place this Saturday, May 22 at Treborough Hill with the first of six races off at 2pm.

The members' race is the first on the card and each of the entries is a contender for honours. Richard Woollacott, who heads the national championship with three winners in hand, has entered Black Forest Lode winner Therecessionbeater; Ashley Farrant could saddle Saturday's men's open winner Mioche D'Estruval, out and out stayer King's Wood or Prince De Bersy and last year's winner Redworth Boy is also entered.

Plenty of decent winners this season are entered in the ladies' including Axe Vale winner Dr Cerullo who acts on any ground and ran out the easy winner. Master Billyboy likes to hear the rattle of his hooves and he won nicely at Little Windsor in April and with Susie Berry in good form, she could enjoy a win on Ha Hoh Macgregor.

Twenty six are entered in the men's and there will be plenty of money of the Richard Woollacott-trained Come What Augustus who is unbeaten this season with seven winners under his belt.He's vying for the national leading horse title too with Fully Loaded who is slightly ahead on points. Lord Darebury's Amicelli is a decent horse and could make the long trip to Devon to line up in the men's and the David Easerby-trained Gunner Jack is another major contender with five wins to his credit this season.

Intermediate entries include Mr Gossip who has been consistent enough this season, winning twice; the Polly Gundry-trained Ned The Post who won the Berkeley Hunt members race a month ago and Sea Senor, another runner to represent David Easterby. Plenty of nice types are entered in the restricted including Wadebridge winner Stitchnick who could represent Richard Woollacott and Shalimar Fromentro, who won a maiden race at Kingston St Mary, could also be among the runners for Jane Williams.

The betting is the key to the maiden race. Entries include Three Half Crowns who was second at Stafford Cross last month, Boluisce whose been in the frame on three occasions and Merry Terry who was beaten half a length at Cothelstone a couple of weeks ago.The course is located on the B3224 Wheddon Cross to Raleigh's Cross road and entrance is £20 per car and £10 for a single occupant.
