OLIVER Greenall, 21, has his first National Point to Point men's title well sealed up after another winning display at Bratton Down on Sunday. The Yorkshire-based rider partnered his 54th winner of the season at Bratton to equal Ashley Farrant's record, which has stood for four years. Greenall rode a confident race on Network Oscar and stayed on strongly to beat Zesta Fiesta and Gin 'N' Fonic to win the Men's Open. The Yorkshire contingent had to settle for second best when evens-favourite Pristine Condition could not catch the free running Parsifal in the Intermediate. Claire Allen was content to give her seven rivals a 20 lengths start on Parsifal, but the nine year old pulled his way to the front by the fourth obstacle and was never headed after that. It was left to Big Daves Legend to provide Greenall with his double in the Restricted. Fleur De Nikos was an impressive winner of the Ladies Open in the hands of 20-year-old Jenny Carr. Carr now leads the Devon & Cornwall Area Lady Novice Riders.Polly Gundry is home and dry in the Ladies' Championship - both local and national. She rode her 39th winner of the season when John Jordan's Ashwood took the second division of the Maiden.ResultsMembers: 1, Harnage (Caroline Farrant); 2, Grey Ciseaux (Eleri Apps) 2. 1/2l; 6.03.Intermediate:1,Parsifal (Claire Allen); 2, Pristine Condition (Oliver Greeall); 3, Antonine (Nick Olier). 3l, 10l; 5.53.Men's Open: 1, Network Oscar (Oliver Greenall ) ; 2, Zesta Fiesta (Danny Cook) ; 3, Gin 'n' Fonic (Ian Popham). 7l, 6l; 5.51.Ladies: 1, Fleur De Nikos (Jenny Carr); 2, Saint Romble (Katherine Hobbs); 3, Gemster (Polly Gundry). 8l, 8l; 5.46.Restricted:1,Big Daves Legend (Oliver Greenall); 2, Captain Machell (Merv Woodward) ; 3, Spella Park (Danny Cook).
