Track Biography:

Quakerstown Point-to-Point and Easter Country Festival, under the auspices of the Co Clare Hunt takes place annually on Easter Sunday. The track is based at Quakerstown in Boston, Co Clare and is set against the backdrop of the majestic Burren.

Quakerstown has proved to be an excellent source of young talent in recent years with Cheltenham Festival Grade 1 winner, Champagne Fever starting his career with a win at this meeting in 2011. Another exciting young talent to come from this meeting was Bacardys who went on to win the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree and the Grade 1 Deloitte Novice Hurdle in Leopardstown in 2017. The 2016 meeting also saw the exciting Next Destination land the four year old maiden and he is now a multiple Graded winner over hurdles including a Grade 1 at Naas

As this meeting is a very important part of the local community, extra effort has been made by the committee to enhance the enjoyment of the occasion for all the family. The day promises to be a wonderful day of racing and entertainment for everyone. There will be many wonderful free attractions such as a pony rides, face painting and bouncy castles. Other free attractions that will appeal to the rest of the family are the dog show and display, a hunt Pony race taking place after racing and a Football skills zone.

There will also be food stalls and an indoor seating pavilion which will allow all members of the family to enjoy the day in comfort. Following the success of the Craft & Artisan Food Fair at the Easter Country festival last year, the committee hope to build on its success and this year it will again feature local crafts people and food producers selling a wide range of hand produced goods. There will be over fifteen stalls displaying the finest of local and Irish produced goods such as woodcraft, candles, jewellery, food and cakes.

Elsewhere, of those with previous form, Diol Ker looks the most interesting for the inform partnership of Pat Doyle and Gigginstown House Stud having gone close at Cragmore.

In what looks to be a wide open heat, KILDRUM sways the selection having put up a very promising debut effort at Boulta in December. The Brian McCarthy-trained gelding was a two-length second to Press Conference, who has subsequently bought by Jessica Harrington for 160,000 pounds at the sales. Alfie Corbitt and Arctic Road have both shown ability and are others that could get involved.

CARRIGMOORNA WOOD lost nothing in defeat on debut in Cragmore in February when finishing second and should definitely have come on from the run. The well-bred Drunken Tattoo was fourth first time out, where she ran well for a long time and that experience will stand to her here. Of the remainder, My First Symphony had every chance at Dromahane two weeks ago when falling at the last and cannot be overlooked.

The Sam Curling-trained LONGHOUSE MUSIC was a winner last time out and is stepping up to open company for the first time. A progressive type, the Gamut mare will have to overcome some more experienced types here but should have a race of this nature within her grasp. Sir Des Champs, a former Cheltenham Festival winner, is the class horse of the race but will have to roll back the years to feature here. Elsewhere, Final Gift, Rattle The Cage and B L Swagger all have claims for the top spot.

BLUE TEMPLAR has some decent track form and was third last time out over the banks at Punchestown in February. The J P McManus-owned son of Milan should have the measure of his rivals in this. Tippinawaynow was second in Moig South last weekend to what looks like a very nice prospect in Perpignan and Myoldman has been second on two previous runs and is worth noting.

A select field for the confined maiden where preference would have to go to the Noel Glynn-trained MABEYWHOKNOWSMABEY. The seemingly improving type was second last time and is the most experienced of the entries. The market may be the best indication as to what is expected of the others.
