Point-to-point: Return to Cottenham will put Bell Rock back on the right track
Saturday 15 March 2008
The recent rain has come in the nick of time especially for Cottenham today where, despite 14mm since Sunday, the going is still good to firm. The fast surface should enable Bell Rock (1.55) to record his fourth course success in the ladies' open after a hit-and-miss start to the season. Bell Rock unseated regular rider Emily Jarvis at the fourth on his reappearance at Badbury Rings last month and then never looked like catching Beet De Bob at left-handed Higham. However, he is much happier going clockwise and was unbeaten in three outings last season – all of them at Cottenham. Galesbob (2.40), most impresssive at Didmarton a fortnight ago, can follow up at Siddington today.
* The Holcombe at Whittington on 19 April has been cancelled as the meeting is "not economically viable".
