Track Biography:

Set amongst the picturesque Blackstairs Mountains, our race track is located close to the parade ring, bookies, final fence and the finish line making it extremely assessable for all of the family to view the day’s action.

Our point-to-point is located on the grounds of the beautiful Borris House which is one of the few intact living Irish estates that can trace its history back to Brehon times, and the royal ruling families of ancient Ireland. The estate is the family home of the 16th generation of McMorrough Kavanagh’s and still contains the majority of its original furniture, paintings, documentary archives and other historic family artefacts.

Borris House is a popular wedding venue with a range of beautiful accommodation offers to choose from as well as providing tours of the estate.

Preview

Seven of the 31 entries in here have the benefit of previous experience, and the undoubted pick of them is BROTHER BYRNE who finished third at Oldtown on debut. That was over the shorter 2m 4f trip and the step up to three miles here will likely suit. The market will give the best guide as to what can be expected from the many newcomers in a race which produced leading Cheltenham fancy Andy Dufresne 12 months ago.

KEEP WONDERING has held a number of entries over recent weeks, and whilst he is yet to make his seasonal reappearance, if he was to show up here, he would have to be given a big chance on account of beating three subsequent maiden winners when second in a competitive four-year-old at Oldcastle in May. Stable companion Up The Straight is back from a mid-season break, having finished in front of the potentially re-opposing Tardree who was making his debut on that occasion and can be expected to get closer here. Lifeisahighway disappointed last time but has shown potential, Ballymac Boy finished fourth at Cragmore on debut, whilst Florrie Webb was a late faller around here in December.

BANNIXTOWN GLORY improved upon her Dungarvan debut when chasing home an eye-catching winner at Punchestown last month and it would not take much further improvement for her to record a local success in this. Sadhbhs Delight has been on the go of late and she returned back to form at Tinahely last week, a course that she runs particularly well at. She was third around here in December and is the obvious danger. Cream Sparkles and Quivvy Lough have both twice filled the placings to date, whilst former track performer Trumps Ace has run well at both Boulta and Neneagh and is another with claims.

FLORRIE WEBB was in front in a four-year-old maiden around here in December when coming down at the final fence, and that is by far the strongest form for this adjacent contest. Stable companion Bannixtown Glory was second at Punchestown in mares company and also holds an alternative entry earlier on this card, leaving Cragmore-fourth Ballymac Glory as the obvious danger as he looks to follow up on the success of his half-brother Hitman Hearns at this venue back in 2014.

Preview

The Colin Bowe team have been in great form of late and they could well add to their tally with FORT WORTH TEXAS in this. The Boulta four-year-old maiden winner also holds an entry in open company at Ballycahane, but would be strongly fancied to bring up the hat-trick if lining up in this. Well Bill ran one of his best races on his return to action at Bellharbour last month, whilst Lottolove is a two-time winner who could make her seasonal re-appearance.

DORAN THE LEGEND can likely be excused his disappointing defeat at Kildorrery in the deteriorating conditions last Sunday, and would have big claims here on his fine second at Ballyvodock three weeks earlier. My Oakclahome is another on somewhat of a recovery mission having failed to follow up his fine second at Mainstown when pulling-up at Boulta in January. Of the others, Iconic Hero has reserved his best for softer ground conditions, but he has to be respecting having hinted that he was coming back to the promise of his fine run at Liscarroll behind Lisnagar Oscar, when third at Tallow last time out.
