Track Biography:

Since 1945 Ballynoe has been noted for its well-staged and successful point-to-point meetings. The current racecourse in the townlands of Garryanne & Killavorilla has been in use since 1983. 1987 saw the introduction of the Waterford Co-Op Gain Final, now better known as the Gain Mares Final,  and has been going from strength to strength ever since. 

The 2018 running sees the continuation of the Gain Mares Bonus of €3000 presented to the winning owner by Gain Horsefeeds & Ballynoe Point to Point Committee. An always exciting finale to a thrilling series of mares’ races as any mare, a maiden at the beginning of the season, who places 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th, at any point to point in Ireland qualifies to enter the Gain Mares Final.

2018 also sees the introduction of an €1000 bonus being added to the 5yo & Upwards Mares Maiden, kindly sponsored by the O’Keeffe family in memory of their father, the late James O’Keeffe, one of the original members of Ballynoe Point to Point Committee in 1945.

A good galloping course with an extensive view for the spectators. A right-handed circuit of just over a mile. The Ballynoe fixture typically falls on the first Sunday of April except when that weekend is Easter weekend, and in recent years has generally moved to March 17th due to the congestion in the Cork Waterford Point to Point Circuit.

Previous noted winners on the track include, My Murphy who won his maiden in Ballynoe in 2011, and went on to win the Thyestes Chase in Gowran Park in 2016. Also Carter Mckay won his maiden in 2016, and went on to be favourite for the Champion Bumper in Cheltenham 2017.

Preview

The Gigginstown House Stud pair of Bloodstone and Barbary Master were no match for newcomers from the Colin Bowe stable on their debuts, and with little other form on offer, it may be one of the many newcomers, the majority of whom are entered across the weekend, that provide the pick of the opposition. The market will give the best guide as to what to expect from them.

BRIEF AMBITION looked the likely winner on his debut at Punchestown, only to fluff the last and give away his chance to come home in front. He could gain compensation here. Ask Politely finished a fine second in a small field maiden at Ballyarthur on his debut and sure to provide a decent challenge, alongside the likes of Kildorrery runner-up Broomfield Boy, whilst Epalo De La Thinte was sent off as the favourite for a bumper at Bangor in October and could be of interest.

MOONLIT WINGS ran well for a long way in what looked a competitive contest at Ballinaboola on her debut last month, and she could find the required improvement to take a race of this nature. Ulterior Motives was only narrowly beaten at Kildorrery on her penultimate start, and whilst she was a beaten favourite when re-appearing more recently at Ballyarthur, she should go close once again, whilst Sofias Castle ran a solid race at Ballyragget a fortnight ago.

GIVEMYLOVETOROSE has taken all before her this season enjoying a rapid rise through the ranks which has seen her finished placed in open company most recently at Lismore. Back against her own sex and in winners company, she looks the one to beat. Montys Mission goes in search of the hat-trick, as does Fort Worth Texas. She is one of two eye-catching runners in the race from the Colin Bowe yard, as Cool Dove won by a wide-margin at Turtulla recently which would certainly bring her into the reckoning. Borris House winner Madera Mist is the other danger to note following an impressive maiden success earlier in the month.

MACS LEGEND is back between the flags following a respectable fourth at Gowran Park in the Tetretema Cup and he will be looking to pick up where he left off when lowering the colours of Fennos Storm at Kildorrery. Some Are Lucky has been in great form this season between the flags, and was last seen in the Cheltenham Foxhunters, whilst Oscar Contender did finish in front of the selection when they met at Cork last Easter and comes into the race following a victory at Tallow last month.

After finishing second on his debut at Ballindenisk back in December, it is hard to look past MOSCOWSOWHAT, who should go one place better in a race of this nature. Artic Fever has finished placed in two recent outings in adjacent company and his connections have found a nice opportunity for him here, whilst Rwegoinhigh would have claims in this if bouncing back to his best.
