Track Biography:

The County Louth Foxhounds were founded in 1817 and one of the few packs of Old English breed of hounds in Ireland.

One of the real attractions of point-to-point racing is the opportunity to get up close and personal with the future stars of the racing world in a relaxed and family friendly environment.

Our annual point-to-point typically takes place at the beginning of April. Situated almost exactly half way between Dublin and Belfast on the Carlingford road, the estate has been in the Tipping family since the early 18th Century.

A short step from the house, the cottage walk leads you towards ‘Tippings Wood’ and as you pass through the wonderfully crafted stone arch, a lake of 1.2 acres lies to your left. As the amazing 200 acres of deciduous woodlands unfolds all around you, the ground rises to the summit of Tippings Rock, where views of Ravensdale, The Cooley Peninsula and the sea give you ample reward for your short climb.

Preview

BEYOND APPROACH is the only horse in here with a previous run to her name, and it is a strong standard that she sets having been set a stiff task on her debut at Tinahely when taking on geldings in February. She acquitted herself well on that occasion, only finding The Hollow Chap, a horse that sold well subsequently, too good in the closing stages, and she would have to be fancied to get her head in front here. The market will give the best indication of what is expected of the newcomers.

OSCAR ACADEMY has run two very promising race to date and he would be most deserving of a maiden success to follow-up a fine second at Borris House on his seasonal reappearance last month. Crio Cuervos took a big step forward last time at Ballyragget and would seem a danger alongside Durrow third Donatello Mail who represents the Cormac Doyle yard.

Preview

GRIANAN FIDH enters the race in good form having posted a career best at Durrow recently, and as the only horse in the line-up with a success to his name this season, he has to be given the verdict here. Drawn N Drank pushed Coolnagorna Giggs all the way to the line at Ballyragget and is a strong stayer, whilst Red Devil Boys would have leading claims on his form of last season, however he weakened quickly on his reappearance at Loughanmore on Monday which would be a concern.

The William Ross-trained WELL BILL had seven-lengths to spare over the potentially re-opposing Commanding Sprit on their meeting at Durrow last month, and as a result, he could be the one to side with in this. Clutch and Templepoint are two recent maiden winners, the latter scoring in testing conditions at Loughanmore on Monday, and they may be the ones best placed to put it up to the selection.

PORTOBELLO WEDDING may well be a nine-year-old with plenty of experience to her name, but she has been running well this year, having only narrowly been denied in a big field contest at Tyrella. Running with credit at Durrow in a very competitive heat, this could be an ideal opportunity for her to get her head in front. Drumconnor Girl is closely matched with Portobello Wedding on their meeting at Tyrella in January, however she disappointed last time when beaten 30-lengths and will need to bounce back to form.

VICTORY GYP ran his best race when finishing second at Durrow on what was just his second run back following a long absence, and it is sure to have left him spot on for this contest. He looks the likely answer to this. Tyrella second Watyawaitingfor was strongly fancied to run well at Loughanmore on Monday and would still be a definite danger here, whilst the track recruit John Mor is returning from a significant absence.
