30th April - Peper Harow
Surrey Union

1st Race - 2.00pm. The SEHC MEMBERS CONDITIONS Race for Veteran & Novice Riders - 3m - 12st
Always A Chance Maiden and Restricted winner, placed at this level and sure to win again soon.
Billy Cuckoo Winner of five chases but three-miles perhaps stretches his stamina.
Carnglave Cat Won here last season and put in a very good effort last time out, but ground may go against him.
Definite Ridge Reliable jumper and thorough stayer who always manages to feature in the placings.
Good Order Has struggled this season and will need a miracle to bounce back.
Heavenstown Won two of these recently and is heavily penalised for it. Beaten by a good horse last time out.
Kaybeew Struggles in races of this level.
Knowhentofoldem Well beaten so far this season.
Mumbles Pier Placed at Open level this season but needs to show more.
Orfeo Conti Ran well at Parham considering he was burdened with a double penalty. Penalty-free here.
Rua Nua Restricted level and pulled up at that level last time.
Running In Heels Probably ran better than her form suggests last time but needs it firm.
Sam Whiskey Tailed off at Parham on first start since July 2015.  
Thenford Ryde Winner of eight point-to-points but pulled up on all starts this season.
Witch’s Hat Showed much improved form this season and should go well.
 
A couple of standout entries in this field in the form of Carnglave Cat and Heavenstown, but the latter carries a double penalty so the former looks the pick of the two. Witch’s Hat has been running well this season and should be able to pick up another place. Orfeo Conti has improved with each run this season and he could also run on to grab a place.
1. Carnglave Cat       2. Heavenstown       3. Definite Ridge
 
2nd Race - 2.35pm. The Subaru RESTRICTED Race - 3m - 12st
Barrafohona Dead heated with Lickety Split but pulled up since.
Did You Ever Beaten in a competitive race at Parham last weekend.
Franks A Million New rules allow him into restricteds but he still looks unlikely to be competitive.
Hi Lucy Lou All out to win on debut for connections then fell last week.
Indian Hill Unraced. Only made it to the start at Godstone.
Iskrabob Won well at Higham and should improve for that.
Justforthebuzz Has had a go at every level without having an impact.
Letskeepit Simple Just failed to win at Parham and has a good chance to make amends.
Macdougal Ran well on better ground last time out and should come on again for that.
My Brother Pat Impressive maiden winner last season but pulled up on both starts this season.
Noble Legacy Struggles to stay with them for more than two miles.
Pinsandneedles Struggles to stay beyond 2m4f and needs fast ground.
Rua Nua Pulled up last time but has yet to run on suitable ground.
Sky Watch Useful form over hurdles and is one to watch.
Tinakellyflyer Second on return from lengthy absence but pulled up in a more competitive race.
Whatwillwedonext Yet to complete this season.
Where’d Ya Hide It Well beaten when completing this season.

This race could be Letskeepit Simples chance for redemption after losing out by the nod of a head at Parham on Saturday, he proved he stays well and shouldn’t be inconvenienced by any rain. Iskrabob should improve enough to chase him home, while Sky Watch should be competitive if 100% straight.
1. Letskeepit Simple      2. Iskrabob       3. Sky Watch
  
3rd Race - 3.10pm. The MENS OPEN Race - 3m - 12st
Bringinthebranston Ran on well at Godstone but well beaten at Parham.
Broughtons Bandit Placed at first Godstone but perhaps been waiting for better ground.
Daidaidai Won all three races this season but this is a step up.
Frankie Anson Won this last season but well beaten this year.
High Kite Finished ahead of Bringinthebranston at Parham and not far behind the placings.
Kriss William Placed on all starts this season but this is perhaps tougher.
Never Complain Unlucky not to win yet and may get his chance here.
Noble Commander Pulled up in all starts this season.
Sebadee Chased home Adept Approach at Penshurst but hasn’t run since.
Ukrainian Star Well beaten this season.
Yukon Delta Well beaten this season.


Never Complain has placed behind good horses this season and he should be the one to beat, but he weakened rapidly at Charing and perhaps lacks stamina. Daidaidai’s stamina is yet to be tested but the vibe is that he will stay, although this is a higher level than he has so far been tested there aren't enough good horses to stretch him. Sebadee ran well behind Adept Approach and he should come on for that run.
1. Daidaidai               2. Never Complain          3. Sebadee


 
4th Race - 3.45pm. The Ladies OPEN Race - 3m - 11st
Bavard Court Won here last season and beat Berties Dream and Little Legend last time out.
Conkies Lad Won when his jumping holds together but unseated when favourite last time.
Crannaghmore Boy Tired late on and collared by Crazy Eyes when left in the lead at Parham.
Crazy Eyes Ran on well to win at Parham and should go well again if in the same form.
Cutlass Silver Well beaten this season.
Dead Or Alive Hasn’t shown good form for a while and probably best discounted.
Festival Bound Placed this good races this season and is sure to win an easier race soon.
Frankie Anson Won here last season but well beaten this year.
Pierlow Won three for Henry De Bromhead but wasn’t rated highly.
Running In Heels Probably ran better than her form suggests last time but needs it firm.
Sa Kaldoun Won a competitive Ladies Open last time out where Conkies Lad was back in 5th.
Sharp Suit Placed in all runs this season but usually finds something to beat him.
Time Is Tickin Improved for application of a tongue tie and proved he is capable at this level.
Tonny Dinozzo Pulled up in all starts this season.
Ukrainian Star Well beaten this season.
Volcan Surprise Beaten favourite here last season and is probably in less good form.
Witch’s Hat Showed much improved form this season and should go well.
Wor Rom Places when completes but now unseated three time this season.
Xaarcet Well beaten this season.
Yukon Delta Well beaten this season.

This is an open race with two of the Turner entries, Bavard Court and Sa Kaldoun, holding good chances, plus Conkies Lad who is looking to bounce back from unseating last time. Sharp Suit will surely pick up a place while Crazy Eyes had his confidence boosted at Parham and should run well again.
1. Sa Kaldoun/Bavard Court              2. Conkies Lad                    3. Crazy Eyes
  
5th Race - 4.20pm. The OPEN MAIDEN Race - 3m - 12st
Amour Collonges Pulled up on both starts this season.
Art Libre Yet to complete this season.
Brogeen Boy Placed last two runs and should win soon.
Dccovi Is completing now but not troubling the judge.
Fayre Enough Beaten by the length of the runin last time out.
Forgive Intrusion Pulled up on both starts this season.
Gersjoeycasey Weakened late on in both starts and perhaps needs better ground.
Honeyholm Pulled up on only start this season.
Indian Hill Unraced.
Knockedoutloaded Pulled up on debut for new yard this season.
Lord Aldervale Well beaten when completing this season.
Old Devereaux Showed average form when completing.
Ruby Yeats Well beaten so far but gaining experience with each run.
Sir Reecer Well beaten on only completion this season.
Skiptothegoodbit Looked fairly useful before departing two out on last two runs.
Weve Got Company Threw this race away when running out last season, placed this season.

Not the highest quality maiden with many of these regularly struggling to complete. Brogeen Boy has improved with each of his last two runs and he should find this easier if last week’s exertions haven’t taken their toll. Knockedoutloaded could improve for his one run this season, while Gersjoeycasey and Weve Got Company should be able to place. Skiptothegoodbit clearly has ability but the failure to complete so far is a worry.
1. Brogeen Boy          2. Gersjoeycasey              3. Weve Got Company
  
6th Race - 4.55pm. The SEHC MEMBERS CONDITIONS Race - 3m - 12st
Always A Chance Maiden and Restricted winner, placed at this level and sure to win again soon.
Billy Cuckoo Winner of five chases but three-miles perhaps stretches his stamina.
Bringinthebranston Ran on well at Godstone but well beaten at Parham.
Carnglave Cat Won this last season and put in a very good effort in defeat last time out.
De Clare Man Continues to run well at this level and will be unlucky to finish the season without winning.
Dead Or Alive Hasn’t shown good form for a while and probably best discounted.
Definite Ridge Reliable jumper and thorough stayer who always manages to feature in the placings.
Festival Bound Placed in good races this season but is sure to win an easier race soon.
Good Order Has struggled this season and will need a miracle to bounce back.
Kriss William Placed on all starts this season and should place again.
Latalanta Completed last time but well behind.
Merrydown Vintage Just beaten at Parham, ahead of De Clare Man.
Noble Commander Pulled up in all starts this season.
Running In Heels Probably ran better than her form suggests last time but needs it firm.
The Admiral Benbow Won at Fakenham last time and has a chance to follow up.
The Gunner Brady Won maiden and restricted but hasn’t made much impact at this level.
Ukrainian Star Well beaten this season.
Wor Rom Places when completes but now unseated three time this season.
Yukon Delta Well beaten this season.
 
Perhaps not the most competitive one of these races. Merrydown Vintage and Carnglave Cat both went down on their swords at Parham and they have chances if running to the same form. Softer ground may put things more in De Clare Mans favour, but he seems to always find a few too good for him. The Admiral Benbow won well last time and this wouldn’t be the hardest race for him to follow up in.
1. Carnglave Cat            2. The Admiral Benbow             3. De Clare Man
Peper Harow Preview
Going: Good. Watered to maintain consistency.
The final fixture of the South East area has plenty of entries on Saturday, and with good ground and a decent weather forecast, a good number of them should take up their entry. The opening Novice Riders contest is short on South East entries, but the best of them appears to be Witch's Hat, who will need to score some points for Ella Gillings to gain an advantage over Izzie Marshall in the Ladies Novice Riders Championship. Her opposition includes previous course winner Carnglave Cat, the likely mount of Chris Dennington, while Heavenstown has been running well in Wales and could make the long journey east. 
The Restricted race is very competitive and Letskeepit Simple is fancied to lose his Restricted status as well as cement himself as the area's Leading Novice, plus giving his owners the Leading Owners title which they are currently joint leading with Marcus Gorman and The Crafty Butcher. His dangers include Iskrabob from the Grissell yard, and Sky Watch, who was highly rated over hurdles and could give Catriona Kerruish her first placing as a trainer. 
The Mens Open could see Daidaidai step up a level, having so far been unbeaten in three point-to-points this season. He has a good horse to beat, however, as the Marshall family have entered Never Complain, a highly rated individual who has been unlucky to bump into some very good horses this season. It's no two horse race and they both have to overcome the challenge of Sebadee, trained by course speicialist Tim Underwood and placed behind Adept Approach earlier this season.
The Ladies Open is hugely competitive and includes three entries from last years winning team, the Turner family, who won with Bavard Court and have entered him again. They also have last years Mens Open winner Frankie Anson and the in form Kriss William. Izzie Marshall needs a placing to pull clear of Ella Gillings in the Ladies Novice Riders Championship and she will be relying on Conkies Lad, who was drawing clear at Parham before unseating, handing the race to Crazy Eyes who is entered here again. Tabitha Worsley takes the ride for Brenda Ansell and any points should keep her above Rose Grissell in the Ladies Championship. 
The Open Maiden will be an entertaining affair and includes Weve Got Company, who was clear in the race last year before running through the wing at the second last. He has formidable opposition this year in the form of Gersjoeycasey for Phil York, as well Brogeen Boy for Hannah Jones, who has finished runner-up on his last two runs. 
The concluding Club Members Conditions race looks competitive, and the winner is likely to be Phil York ridden, with both Carnglave Cat and Merrydown Vintage entered, who both ran well in defeat at Parham last week. They aren't without formidable opposition as The Admiral Benbow is entered for the Andrew Pennock yard while De Clare Man is sure to feature in the placings.
The Gentleman Riders Championship has already been sewn up with Sam Davies-Thomas well clear of his rivals. Without him the race will go down to the wire for second with Charlie Marshall, Oz Wedmore, and Shane Roche all within three points of each other. 
Shane is clear of Wayne Russell in the Novice equivalent.

Peper Harow Review
An enormous crowd witnessed some spectacular racing at Peper Harow, although South East trained runners failed to land a blow. 
The opening Novice Riders contest saw the first leg of a Tim Underwood training double, as Carnglave Cat and Chris Dennington just held on from the fast finishing Orfeo Conti. 
The following Subaru sponsored Restricted race saw it's fair share of casualties plus a shock victor, as the Ed Turner trained Franks A Million held off Letskeepit Simple.
The Mens Open saw Tim Underwood land his second winner as the Phil York ridden Sebadee held off favourite Daidaidai, before Sharp Suit almost begrudgingly won the Ladies Open for Gina Ellis and Alan Hill. 
The Open Maiden saw Phil York land a riding double, as his father's Gersjoeycasey held off Brogeen Boy and Hannah Jones, who scored enough points to tie with Izzie Marshall and Ella Gillings for the Novice Lady Riders Championship. 
The concluding Club Members Conditions race went to the Gentleman Champion Sam Davies-Thomas, who was having his only ride of the day. Rose Grissell finished second on Wor Rom, scoring enough points to overhaul Tabitha Worsley in the Ladies Championship. ​​
