Point-to-point: Greenall likely to extend lead

Today's Lady Dudley Cup at Chaddesley Corbett has attracted a higher class field than last year and Irilut, last season's winner, will struggle against Gaelsbob, who is on a roll after completing a hat-trick last week, and Coolefind, who last Saturday made a pleasing comeback from a pulled muscle.

Prolific Welsh winner Cannon Bridge is likely to make his seasonal debut nearer home in the members' race (2.00) at Bonvilston and although Gaelsbob (3.50) found Chaddesley Corbett on the sharp side when third on his reappearance in February, he has gone from strength to strength on the prevailing soft ground since then.

The Mares Championship Final at Clifton-on-Dunsmore tomorrow can go to West Country raider Kiama (2.10) who made amends for her fall at Kilworthy last month when winning by an unchallenged 25 lengths at Cherrybrook in the fastest time of the day.

Bargain of the weekend is tomorrow's Cleveland meeting at Mordon in Co Durham, where the entrance charge for the eight-race card is only £5 per head. Oliver Greenall, five (25-20) ahead of Richard Burton in the riders' championship looks sure to ride at least one winner and his best chance is the Aintree Foxhunters fourth, Sonevafushi (3.50), in the men's open.
