North Cornwall Club at Wadebridge, Saturday 15th December 2007 OVER 90 entries have been received for the North Cornwall Club meeting to be held at the Royal Cornwall Showground, Wadebridge on Saturday. The seven race card gets under way ay 12 noon.Racing at Wadebridge is always competitive and both the Men's and Ladies' Opens have attracted quality entries. Sea Snipe, last year's leading horse, is entered for both of these events, but is more likely to take on Tsar's Twist in the Club Members' race. Concert Pianist bids to follow up last year's success in the Men's Open which is a qualifier for the Volkswagen Touareg series, but will come up against Hunter Chase winner Alambique, plus some useful performers under rules such as the former David Pipe trained Yes My Lord, now with Ashley Farrant. Other jumps winners in the field include Angello, Designer Label, Ilabon, Happy Shopper and Merchant's Friend. Happy Shopper has the option of the Ladies' Open where he could be opposed by Let's Fly, Bak to Bill, Innocent Rebel, Irish jumps winner Urban Rebel and Bally Blue, trained by Monique Pike, who will be ridden by Rachael Green. Monique Pike and Rachael Green got off the mark for the season with Sulawacee at Black Forest Lodge, and the same combination will be represented by Castle Cazza in the Red Mills Intermediate. Fremantle Doctor and Talikos can provide the main opposition.The Restricted looks a classy contest with several improving types amongst the 16 entries. Massini Man, Silver Monarch, Ballybrown and Tom Cannon are amongst the highest rated, and Black Forest winner Knightsbridge Hill cannot be left out.The Open Maiden will be run in two divisions and sets punters a real puzzle at this stage of the season. Secretary David Bryant reports that he "expects the going to be good", and is very pleased with the quality of the entries. The course is located 1 mile west of the town immediately off the A39. Admission costs £10 per car and driver, plus £5 for each extra passenger.
