Track Biography:

The Galway Blazers have a long history of holding a point-to-point dating back over a hundred years. The hunt dates from the beginning of the 19th century and has established itself as one of the famous Irish Hunts due to the goodwill and generosity of farmers and landowners throughout the county.

We run two meetings a year at Dartfield just outside Loughrea with the first one taking place in October and the second fixture being held in April. The course is situated at Dartfield Horse Museum and heritage centre which is set on 350 acres of parkland just forty minutes from Galway city.

Over the years, Loughrea point-to-point has produced many top national hunt stars such as Bewleys Berry, Boys Hurrah, Brindisi Breeze, Never Compromise and King Johns Castle.

MASTER THYNE, fourth on debut at Dromahane in April, will have come on from that run and is the selection here. Battle of Midway fell when held behind Brewers Project at Ballyarthur in March. The son of Mahler made some jumping errors on that day and that experience will stand to him here. Monsieur DArque was fifth on debut at Belharbour over the shorter 2m4f trip and could enjoy the step-up in distance.

Preview

Unlucky not to have lost his maiden tag at Courtown last time out, NO HIDDEN CHARGES was well in command when crashing out at the final fence, and if showing no ill effects of that, is the one to watch. Along The Reeks was second at Ballysteen a fortnight ago, and on that effort he should have a race of this nature well within his ability. Gun Merchant, Far Destination and Golan warrior are all worth noting.

Preview

The James King-trained MISS DELIGHTED is returning to the pointing field having just been beaten in a mares bumper at Cork over Easter, and previous to that was just over a length in arrears to Ask Mary, who has now four wins to her name this season. She could be very hard to beat. Siamsa Cois Laoi looks to be an improving type this season and is the danger. Elsewhere, The Best In Town and Go Millie Go cannot go without a mention.

Preview

The in-form Pat Doyle holds two entries in this race, and of the two, SAMANNTOM looks the one to side with. Third to Bridgets Pet at Largy last time out, has shown good form this season. Doyles other entry, Valco De Touzine has course form in Loughrea having won this open last season, whilst he was well held in October here when A Decent Excuse was successful. The ultra-consistent Final Gift should run close once again and Cavite Beta should also be in the money.

The consistent CLOUDY DAY has gone close at this track before, finishing second on her return to the point-to-point field here in October and is the one to side with here. Showing good recent form, Cubanera was a winner last time out and would be hoping to supplement that, whilst Owl Creek Bridge is another worth keeping an eye on.

CHOSEN FLAME looks to be an improving type, getting closer with each run and should be due a visit to the winners enclosure soon. Getaway Honey and Siamsa Cois Laoi both have decent runs to their name and could go close here.
