KILWORTHY near Tavistock is the location for this Sunday's point to point in the Devon and Cornwall area and a cracking entry has been received for the six race card which kicks off at 1pm.

First up is the members' race which is always hugely competitive and this year is no exception. Among the entries are last year's winner The Boss Roche who landed the odds when scoring a three length success from Toi Express. Other entries include Great Trethew maiden winner My Nicole, and Brook Castle who could improve on his second place at Great Trethew earlier this year.

The 23 entries in the maiden include Greenock who ran a promising race at Buckfastleigh on Sunday where he was second to Lord Raspberry, Lucette Annie who thoroughly deserves a win after a string of decent efforts last season and True Tara who has also looked promising.

The mixed open looks a particularly strong renewal with plenty of popular Westcountry horses set to line up. Entries include devout stayer Ask Again, Carrie On who has been unbeaten in her last four runs, Coronation Cup winner Coombe Hill and Jaunty Janner who will have plenty of racegoers cheering him on.

Another cracking restricted is on the cards and sorting out the winner could pose a problem. Carol Lawrence's Meilyr looked eye catching in the paddock at Ottery St Mary and duly won his maiden in good style; Hambledown Tor scored a maiden win at Buckfastleigh on Sunday, Lord Lescriiba has ability and Rocklyn provided young Jack Harris with his first ever win at Ottery St mary a couple of weeks ago.

The intermediate race is a qualifier for the final at Exeter Raceourse on Tuesday, May 4 where, among the treats, Simon Webbe will be singing live after racing. Entries include the lovely Turtle Tim who could make amends for unshipping Neil Harris at Ottery St Mary, Print The Money who has won both his starts this season and impressive Larkhill winner Civil Disobedience.

The course is extremely popular in West Devon and racegoers are advised to allow plenty of time to get onto the track. There will be plenty of catering as well as a variety of trade stands and with good viewing guaranteed it's a day out not to be missed.

The course is located near Brentor, Tavistock postcode PL19 0JX. Entrance is £20 per car or £10 for a car with one occupant.
