Track Biography:

Set amongst the picturesque Blackstairs Mountains, our race track is located close to the parade ring, bookies, final fence and the finish line making it extremely assessable for all of the family to view the day’s action.

Our point-to-point is located on the grounds of the beautiful Borris House which is one of the few intact living Irish estates that can trace its history back to Brehon times, and the royal ruling families of ancient Ireland. The estate is the family home of the 16th generation of McMorrough Kavanagh’s and still contains the majority of its original furniture, paintings, documentary archives and other historic family artefacts.

Borris House is a popular wedding venue with a range of beautiful accommodation offers to choose from as well as providing tours of the estate.

Just two of the near 30 entries in here have the benefit of previous experience which should stand to them. ASSEMBLE was a six-figure store purchase and he led for a long way on his debut at Oldtown, only headed from the last in a race won by Asterion Forlonge, a horse who was sold for 290,000 pounds at the Cheltenham Sale afterwards. Pat Doyle, who trained Asterion Forlonge, will have a good line on that form as he also trains Appricate It, a half-brother to recent Kempton bumper winner Danny Kirwan, who came home in third on his debut at Ballinaboola. Both now step-up from the shorter 2m4f trip.

John Paul Brennan saddled the winner of a similar race at Tinahely last Sunday and his OSCAR ACADEMY catches the eye here. The Oscar gelding finished fourth in a Lingstown four-year-old maiden last March that has worked out particularly well, with the first two home in that race holding entries at the upcoming Cheltenham Festival, including Flawless Escape, favourite for the Martin Pipe Hurdle. Old Rascals, Hadmeathello, Arctic Road, Mats Hill and Broadway Star ensure this could be a competitive heat.

ASKING A LOT, an Ask mare who finished third in a four-year-old maiden at Bartlemy in the spring could be the one to pick out of this big entry on her seasonal reappearance. Rollercoster and Berboru have more recent runs to their name which could give them the fitness edge, whilst the likes of Lady Dowager and Devitosredrobin are others for the shortlist.

Preview

TAJJ chased home Pop The Champers at Courtown on his debut, a horse that subsequently came out and won again by no less than 12-lengths a fortnight later. Whilst Tajj did disappoint at Curraheen on his only start since, that Courtown effort is the standout piece of form in this. The Aidan Fitzgerald pair of Rosfoyle and Poppets Prince have both shown ability in the past, whilst Windy Bottom finished second around here in December.

Preview

A 10-time winner between the flags, SYDNEY PAGET holds multiple entries this weekend, and whatever engagement he takes up, he is sure to go off as a warm favourite as he looks to pick-up a fourth consecutive success this season. Cavite Beta blemished his typically consistent record when pulling-up at Kirkistown last month, but can bounce back from that here, whilst his stable companion Sizing Solution could make his seasonal reappearance having won back-to-back hunter chases at Cork and Killarney last spring.

Preview

A fairly open looking race that could go the way of recent Ballinaboola third, MISTER ROBBO. Trained by Diarmuid Ryan, the Indian River gelding can be expected to step-up from that season opening performance last month. On Raglan Road caught the eye when running at the same venue on his pointing debut, and this well-bred ex-Willie Mullins inmate is an interesting contender. Turlough is another that cannot be discounted if returning to his Dromahane effort of last season having disappointed during the autumn.
