The snow topped hills will present a picturesque scene at Llanfrynach if the Brecon Talybont Hunt get the go-ahead on Saturday.

There are a total of 111 entries and some of these such as Basher Brian, BillyGwynToo, Frelia and High Hatton – there are others too- have also been entered for the Beaufort Hunt meeting which also takes place on Saturday.

Racing gets under way with the Confined race at 1pm and there are 16 entries.

Carmen Goldsworthy’s Captain Camelot has been entered in this race and the following PPORA Club Members Conditions event, a race it easily won last year when beating Tiger Rag who this time is down to run in the Ladies’ open.

Others that catch the eye in the opener are former National Hunt performers Get It On and stable companion Aerlite Supreme who both failed to complete at the recent Curre Llangibby fixture.

There are 26 down to run in the PPORA Club Members and these include ItchyMeI’mScratch, CanSheTrain, Blazing Tom and David Brace’s impressive recent Howick winner Colorado Doc who came home a distance ahead of his stable-companion Bob The Butcher and who looks a lively contender for the Chepstow Dunraven Bowl in April.

Fourteen have been entered for the Men’s Open and Beverley Thomas’ Moral Hazard who surprised his winning connections when landing the Roger Lewis Mixed Open at Howick under Bradley Gibbs has High Hatton, Frelia and William Money to beat.

The Ladies’ Open race has the same number of entries and Roger Willcox’s versatile PatrickTom Boru – a winner between-the flags, over hurdles and over the sticks – could face strong opposition from Watch The Birdie.

Others of note include Hold Court, Highly Unlikely and Horsham Lad.

Georgia Kemeys’ well-backed Curre maiden winner Mason Dixon is one of 17 horses down to go in the Restricted while others here include the French-bred Vouvray, Captain Kennit, Hit The Diff and Charlie Breekie.

Twenty-four horses have been entered for the Open Maiden, which sees the end of the day’s proceedings and the Kieran Price-trained Sweet Lady Jane, a faller at Howick but who was well backed, should be given another chance.

Basher Brian, Colliers Boy, Long Mile Road and Sneaky Pint are just four more of the horses down to run in this race.
