Point-to-Point: Craigmor can make Gundry dash pay off

The former champion Polly Gundry, who is making a determined effort to regain her title, rides at two meetings today. After partnering Rockwithacaveman (11.30) in the opening hunt members at Bishops Court, in Devon, she will then dash across country to Didmarton in Gloucestershire.

Rockwithacaveman, whom she also trains, has a simple task and will be long odds-on as he attempts a four-timer, but stablemate Craigmor (2.50) should be a decent price in the restricted at Didmarton.

This more demanding course should suit the eight-year-old who made significant late headway when fourth to the smart Lisadell King at Larkhill last month.

Almost five years ago Seebald was upsides Moscow Flyer when falling at the second last in the Two Mile Champion Chase. The now 13-year-old is entered in the men's open at Kingston St Mary tomorrow.

Even if he stays three miles on this undualting track he is unlikely to cope with a race-fit Croix De Guerre (2.15), who was desperately unlucky when carried out by a loose horse last time.
