Polly Gundry and Rilly Goschen, joint top in the ladies' title race with 17 winners after each had a success at Larkhill on Wednesday, will clash again at Mounsey Hill Gate in Somerset today.

Reigning champion Gundry could edge ahead on Bally Blue in the ladies open (2.35). Ironically, Goschen rode the seven-year-old on his last two outings, the latest when second to Hasten Bak at Flete Park and her best chance today looks to be on Regal Storm in the first maiden (4.55). Goschen is making every effort to maintain her challenge. She has nothing booked as yet for tomorrow's only meeting, but heads to Wales on Monday for two rides at Bonvilston. Gundry will be eventing tomorrow and returns on Monday at either Chaddesley Corbett, where she is likely to partner Phar From Chance in the 3.10, or Lifton, the course owned by Cornish comedian Jethro, in Devon. Tomorrow Mr Splodge should notch up his seventh win on his local course in the mens' open (3.40) at Kingston Blount .
