Track Biography:

Rathnestin was built in 1820 in Tallanstown in the heart of Co. Louth, and has a long-standing history deeply embedded in horse racing and country pursuits. For over 40 Years the Rathnestin racecourse has been noted for its well staged and successful Point to Point meetings, including the home to the Louth Hunt Point to Point from 1976 to 2015.

This year Rathnestin looks forward to welcoming the inaugural Rathnestin Oriel Harriers Hunt Point to Point, which will be held over the 2018 May Bank Holiday Weekend, The Hunt Club has been going strong since its formation in the early seventies and meets every Sunday throughout the winter.

Rathnestin is a good galloping course with an extensive view for the spectators. A left-handed circuit of just over a mile. It has two long straights, two gradual bends with five fences, two downhill one leading to home, which produces many the exciting tight finish to get the crowd roaring.

This will be a great day out in the countryside for people to come together to enjoy the sporting action and to socialise whilst enjoying food-on-the go, outdoor fun, picnics and lots of interesting trade stands.

Preview

There is only limited form on offer in this race, and of those to have shown promise in the past, DOWHATUDOBEST, would seem the pick, as she finished third on her debut, where she came up against some more experienced types. She can step-up in this. Go Millie Go has struggled somewhat of late, but with promising four-year-old form from the autumn to her name, she has to be respected.

Preview

NO HIDDEN CHARGES was extremely unfortunate not to get off the mark at Courtown last month, coming down at the final fence whilst looking set for success. Compensation could be achieved here for the John Paul Brennan-trained gelding. The perennially placed Skyhill is well overdue a maiden success and he ran one of his best races at Largy last time which bodes well, whilst Well Afford, Clondaggin, and Shetland Bus are others for the shortlist.

WITCHES GLEN was in the process of running her best race when taking on geldings in an adjacent contest at Stradbally last month. She came down at the final fence when destined to be placed on that occasion, and the drop back to mares-only company could be rewarded here. Lady Of Derrygally finished in front of Milano Citizen when they met at Largy recently and she would seem to be the main danger having also run well at Tyrella, whilst if Tornado Sky was to settle better than she did on debut, do not be surprised to see her but up a big performance.

Preview

Both Emmas Joy and LOUGH DERG ROSE caught the eye when getting off the mark on their debuts and if they were to clash here, it would produce an interesting contest. Marginal preference is given to the latter as the form has already begun to work out well with Inishbel and Presenting Rio since running well. Yourelookingwell and Drumconnor Girl are the other two recent maiden winners worthy of consideration.

BRIDGETS PET may well have caused an upset when coming out on top recently, but as it was a very competitive race which he won, he has to be given the utmost respect as he looks to follow-up here. Vinnie Luck has won back-to-back match races and is in good form, whilst Milan Flyer is another horse who goes in search of a hat-trick. Cavite Beta has struggled to recapture his best form this spring but would certainly be a danger at his best, and Final Gift is another in-form sort who has won two of his last three.

Preview

CAPTAINS RUN put in a bold show from the front at Monksgrange just last Sunday, and he was only narrowly denied. A repeat of that run should see him go one better in this. Drumconnor will look to follow in the footsteps of his half-sister who was among the winners at Taylorstown last week, whilst Definite Plan, Krisquin, Bunninadden and track recruit Dersumthingaboutim are other dangers.
