Track Biography:

The North Down point-to-point moved to its current course at Kirkistown in 2006 and have held three meetings each season since then. The course is located towards the eastern side of the Ards Peninsula near the village of Portavogie.  It’s in an area that was used as an airfield during the war and hence is very flat and well drained.

Kirkistown is a very level left handed course run over a circuit just short of a mile. Runners jump two fences close to the spectator’s area and a further three along the back straight.

Our November fixture is normally the final meeting of the autumn calendar in the northern area. Conversely, our February and March fixtures are two of the earliest in the northern spring calendar.

Some of the leading graduates from our point-to-point include Simonsig, Petit Mouchoir & Agus A Vic.

Warren Ewing won the opening four-year-old maiden in the northern region around here last month with Bold Plan, who he subsequently sold to Evan Williams at the Cheltenham sales. His WAYFINDER has the pick of the form having finished fourth on debut to Bellharbour and he is sure to come on for the run. The market will provide what a good guide as to what is expected from the well-bred newcomers.

CLASSIC ESCAPE had caught the eye around here on his debut, coming down at the second-last whilst travelling well at the time and looking set to play a big role at the business end of the race. The Golan gelding could make amends for Peter Flood here. Stable companions Mayohill and Skyhill have both made the frame on their latest outings and are consistent performers, whilst newcomer Duc Du Mee is a half-brother to Roi Due Mee, a Grade 1 winner for Gordon Elliott.

The ultra-consistent DRUMCONNOR GIRL has hit the cross bar on each of her last three outings, including a narrow defeat at Tyrella on her penultimate start. She is deserving of a maiden success this season. Oldtown Polly posted a career best at Armagh recently when only a couple of lengths behind Drumconnor Girl, but both will have to watch out for a number of newcomers that represent respected yards.

Absent since pulling-up on his seasonal reappearance at Loughanmore back in October, former Graded winner FELIX YONGER, easily won this race last year and the 12-year-old, who was entered in the Cheltenham Foxhunters, will look to get back on track here. Eddies Miracle was not at his best when finishing fourth at Fairyhouse in a Hunter Chase and can bounce back, whilst stable companion, Vinnie Luck, would have to be feared if repeating his fine run behind Morning Assembly at this venue last month, as too would stable companions Sizing Solution and Cavite Beta.

So impressive when defeating a subsequent winner on her pointing debut around here last month, TIN TOWN LIZ steps-up to take on the geldings, and with a valuable 5lb allowance in her favour for doing so, she looks tough to oppose in this. Commanding Spirit and Push The Tempo both benefitted from final fence fallers when winning their maidens last month, and so it may be Manetti, a Portrush maiden winner who gives the selection her biggest test. He chased home Captain Cj at Loughanmore in the autumn, with that horse going on to finish third in a Leopardstown Bumper behind Carefully Selected, a horse being mentioned for the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham next week, to advertise that form.

Preview

OUTSIDE THE RING finished in front of a subsequent winner around here on his seasonal reappearance back in November, before being well-beaten at Moira in very testing conditions. Back from a break, he is given a second chance here. Knockan Run is another horse back from a mid-season break and he would look to be one of the principal dangers, alongside the likes of Templepoint and Ballyhale, who was very unlucky not to get off the mark around here last month.
