Track Biography:

Laois Hunt Foxhounds hold ther bi-annualy Point-to-Point race meetings on the grounds of Stradbally Hall, the venue for the fixtures for over twenty years. Btoh meetings ran at Stradbally are held in the Spring, the first in mid-April and the second in mid-May. Ease of access and the unique setting make this a very popular event.

Stradbally Hall, as it appears today, dates from the middle of the 19th century. Stradbally Hall has been the seat of the Cosby family since the reign of Edward VI. We are very lucky to have such a picturesque setting where spectators have a view of the full course which runs over beautiful parkland.

One of the joys of point-to-point racing is the opportunity to get up close and personal with some of the future stars of Irish racing. Fundamentalist begun his racing career between the flags in the Irish countryside. The Cheltenham Festival winner recorded three wins in the pointing field, the second of which was achieved at Stradbally.

Preview

A competitive contest where the preference is given to the consistent OSCAR ACADEMY, a horse that finished fourth in a four-year-old at Lingstown on his debut last March, before chasing home Mats Hall on his reappearance at Borris House and can make the step up to go one place better here. Plan Of Escape would be the danger on his Lingstown run, however he disappointed at Borris House in December when sent off as a short-priced favourite. Tallow final fence casualty Turbo has switched yards since his last run, whilst stable companions Champagne Well and Champagne Court, alongside the progressive The Tangler Barry are others for the shortlist.

Track recruit COUSIN PASCAL was only touched off by a nose in a Wexford maiden hurdle back in October and he may be the one to follow on his return between the flags. Lagganstown finished fourth in a top class contest at Borris House in December and he could be the danger on his return from a break. Paschals Dream was only headed before the final fence at Curraghmore recently and took a big step forward on that occasion, and he is one for the shortlist alongside Inch runner-up Arch Melody and Could Be Better who also filled the runners-up spot in a small field event at Liscarroll.

TANGO LOUVO finished third in this race three years ago, and although he is returning from a long absence, he has proven his liking for this course which should aid him in this wide-open looking race. Say Geronamo took on previous winners when making his return to action at Punchestown and he finished a respectable fourth which should leave him well positioned for this, whilst Lleyton does not have the typical profile of a point-to-pointer, having finished a close second in a claiming race over 1m2f on the all-weather at Dundalk last time.

Preview

Reigning champion point-to-pointer OURMANMASSINI finished second around here in May and he can get his season back on track in this competitive heat, where he could well have to take on Minella For Value, a horse that routed the field at Kildorrery on his penultimate outing. There was little separating Coolnagorna Giggs and Drawn N Drank at Ballyragget recently, whilst this course may bring out the best from After Eight Sivola.

Preview

BUCKIE CULLEN is a two-time winner this season who recorded his latest success when coming home a distance clear of his other rivals at Cragmore in February. This will likely be a different test here, but he is a progressive performer who brings the pick of the form into the race. Abbazagga slipped clear of the field to run out a wide-margin winner at Liscarroll on his penultimate start, but was unable to do the same at Cork over Easter, whilst Mias Milan is a horse proven at a higher level who could bounce back to be a danger.

Preview

There was not a lot separating Asking A Lot and DURNKEN TATTOO when they met at Borris House last month, and preference is given to the latter as Asking A Lot will need to bounce back from a disappointing sixth place finish at Curraghmore more recently. Crystal Kate steps back out of confined company having finished second against geldings at Lismore last month, whilst Alloverafiver, Timetochill and Ninja Kelly are others to note from this big field.
