Track Biography:

Since 1945 Ballynoe has been noted for its well-staged and successful point-to-point meetings. The current racecourse in the townlands of Garryanne & Killavorilla has been in use since 1983. 1987 saw the introduction of the Waterford Co-Op Gain Final, now better known as the Gain Mares Final,  and has been going from strength to strength ever since. 

The 2018 running sees the continuation of the Gain Mares Bonus of €3000 presented to the winning owner by Gain Horsefeeds & Ballynoe Point to Point Committee. An always exciting finale to a thrilling series of mares’ races as any mare, a maiden at the beginning of the season, who places 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th, at any point to point in Ireland qualifies to enter the Gain Mares Final.

2018 also sees the introduction of an €1000 bonus being added to the 5yo & Upwards Mares Maiden, kindly sponsored by the O’Keeffe family in memory of their father, the late James O’Keeffe, one of the original members of Ballynoe Point to Point Committee in 1945.

A good galloping course with an extensive view for the spectators. A right-handed circuit of just over a mile. The Ballynoe fixture typically falls on the first Sunday of April except when that weekend is Easter weekend, and in recent years has generally moved to March 17th due to the congestion in the Cork Waterford Point to Point Circuit.

Previous noted winners on the track include, My Murphy who won his maiden in Ballynoe in 2011, and went on to win the Thyestes Chase in Gowran Park in 2016. Also Carter Mckay won his maiden in 2016, and went on to be favourite for the Champion Bumper in Cheltenham 2017.

Sent off as a short-priced favourite for his debut at Ballinaboola over the shorter 2m4f trip, APPRECIATE IT was no match for the impressive Envoi Allen, a horse went on to be sold for 400,000 pounds at Cheltenham. That form looks strong with the runner-up also changing hands for six-figures, and so a big run has to be expected from this half-brother to Lisronagh points winner and recent Kempton bumper scorer Danny Kirwan.

The Gold Well gelding CHAMPAGNE WELL comes from a stable well capable of producing smart track prospects, and on the evidence of his Knockanard debut, he is up to winning this. The danger could come from the Robert Tyner-trained Full Tilt who finished a close third at Kildorrery. If recapturing his Tralee form of last spring, Its For Alan could have claims.

Kildorrery third A Mill From Milan is another sure to improve, whilst Another Theatre could be of note as she was the subject of some market support when finishing third in a wide open race at Oldtown last month.

Many of the entrants in this have limited experience in winners company, that is not something that can be said about MILAN DANCER who even has an open success under her belt. Also proven against geldings, she is tough customer who can make the long journey to Ballynoe a worthwhile one for her connections by claiming this valuable prize. Holy Motivation could represent Donnchadh Doyle who took all before him last week, and she was an impressive 12-length winner at Tinahely. Should the conditions not turn up too testing, she would seem the main danger.

Unable to gain last minute qualification to the Foxhunters when unseating at just the first fence at Tinahely last month, MORNING ASSEMBLY will look to leave that behind him to return to the form of his impressive success at Kirkistown. Former Grade 1 winner Lac Fontana made a pleasing debut in this sphere at Killeagh in January on what was his first start over fences and he is sure to step up from that.

Preview

Track recruit Macs Legend finished fourth at Punchestown in May off a chase mark of 109. That form would see him comfortably take most older maidens. However if ULUROO, another track recruit, was to line-up here, he could be the one to follow, as he finished second in a Kelso novice hurdle in May behind a now 130-rated hurdler. Bandon runner-up Big Man Clarence has the pick of the points form.
