JOCKEY Immy Robinson made history at the North Hereford Hunt point to point on Saturday with Irish Anthem, winning the very first race at the new race track at Eaton Hall, Leominster, the ‘Bake Phillips’ Members Race and this was the first leg of a treble for Cheshire trainer Joseph O'Shea.

Sent off the heavily odds-on favourite Hill View Lad was always in command and although his sole opponent Irish Anthem briefly threatened at the second last fence the favourite came home an easy three and a half length winner, the second place was disqualified following an objection by the Clerk of the Scales with the rider failing to weigh in.

The middle leg of the treble for O'Shea was the win of Road To Rome, ridden by Tommie O'Brien, who is attached to the Much Marcle yard of National Hunt trainer Tom Lacey, in the Restricted Race.

Road to Rome was confidently ridden by O’Brien and he easily followed up his win at Buckfastleigh point to point last time out with an impressive 35 length win from Pearlesque ridden by Natalie Bower.

The treble was completed for O’Shea, who attended the recent ‘course walk’ to inspect the new track two weeks ago, when his Mr Snuffles took the two and a half mile young horse Maiden race.

Cavs Girl and her jockey Zac Baker were stylish winners of the Mares Only Maiden, from debutante pointer Quite Remarkable who was ridden by Jack Tudor, who overcame some sticky early jumping to give his mount a confidence giving second place.

The Mixed Open race saw the dominant partnership of last season rider Alex Edwards and trainer Phillip Rowley strike when their Bears Affair take the five runner affair.

Although four runners were in with a chance on the final circuit Edwards stayed on well to score by nine lengths.
