Track Biography:

**Please note that the fixture on November 21st will take place behind closed doors with no spectators permitted to attend due to Government restrictions associated with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.**

The North Down point-to-point moved to its current course at Kirkistown in 2006 and have held three meetings each season since then. The course is located towards the eastern side of the Ards Peninsula near the village of Portavogie.  It’s in an area that was used as an airfield during the war and hence is very flat and well drained.

Kirkistown is a very level left handed course run over a circuit just short of a mile. Runners jump two fences close to the spectator’s area and a further three along the back straight.

Our November fixture is normally the final meeting of the autumn calendar in the northern area. Conversely, our February and March fixtures are two of the earliest in the northern spring calendar.

Some of the leading graduates from our point-to-point include Simonsig, Petit Mouchoir & Agus A Vic.

CARTONNE went close on his debut in a small-field maiden at Necarne earlier in the month when just under three lengths behind Curtain Time. He should encounter another relatively small field here and sets the standard ahead of the Dromahane-third Crypto Currency and Azof Des Mottes. The latter having made the frame at Ballindenisk recently after a late departure at Cork on his debut.

CABALLO DIABLO has a very progressive profile having improved with each outing this season culminating with a career best effort when second to Forward Plan at Ballingarry last Saturday. With his stable in top form, he could be hard to defeat. Garde Des Champs was unable to recapture his autumn form at Ballingarry and will need to bounce back to figure here, with Gavroche Dallier another capable of making an impression in this as he was just two lengths behind Caballo Diablo in Ballingarry.

ROSE OF COOLBALLY had been unable to back up her fine second to the Hunter Chase-placed Clounts Glory at Dromahane over the Christmas period when make her belated return to action at Ballindenisk, but she is worth a second chance here. The returning Burnt Ash has run respectably in a number of races under rules since last being seen in this sphere including when second in a Carlisle bumper back in February. She is entered over hurdles at Kelso tomorrow, but if appearing here she would be a definite factor alongside Uppertown Mya and Getalady.

MARINERO and Er Dancer are both chasing an important victory here in their respective bids to become the champion point-to-point horse, with preference going from the former who has now won twice over the past two weekends, including when accounting for the potentially reopposing Creadan Grae at Necarne two weeks ago which would leave him as the most likely winner of this.

Preview

After a big effort in a Down Royal Hunter Chase at the beginning of the month, WILLIAM TYNDALE gained a well-deserved maiden victory at Necarne recently when winning by a wide margin in impressive fashion. That would seem him as the standard bearer in this. Broughshane winner Greco seemed to win with a bit up his sleeve and is the obvious danger alongside the Dromahane winner Mortlach.

Preview

The Caroline McCalin-trained BALLYEARL has run two very fine efforts in defeat in Hunter Chase company in recent weeks, most notably at Down Royal when just under four lengths behind William Tyndale who won so impressively at Necarne. The similar return to older maiden company should be rewarded here. Texas Gold has been taking on winners throughout much of this season and is a contender back in this grade alongside Storm Hill, Thehairyfella, Clonmeen, Ranger Kid and Getaway Lodge who ensure this race has a very competitive look to it.
