Track Biography:

The North Kilkenny Foxhounds date back to 1931 with the first running of their point-to-point in the late 1940's.

The current racecourse at Parksgrove in Ballyragget has been in use since 1989, returning from Gowran Park to the open country, as had been in its formative years.

The right-handed course is practically level throughout making it a great viewing track and a favoured track amongst handlers that always has a large number of entries.

Previous track winners to have won at Ballyragget include former Grade One winner Herecomesthetruth, a maiden winner here in 2007, and former Grade Two winning Luska Lad won the open 2015.

REGARDE would have to be considered particularly unfortunate to still remain a maiden as he looked booked for a first success at Ballycahane recently before almost coming to a complete stop at the final fence which cost him victory. Compensation should come here as he may have the edge over Lucky Zebo and Old Folk Take.

Preview

GETABELLE took a nice step forward to finish second at Tinahely late last month in what would look the definite standout piece of form. She had the measure of the potentially re-opposing Talkingthetalk when that rival exited at the final fence and will look to confirm that again here. Larkfield Legacy has long been knocking on the door and is sure to be right in the mix after a recent run in a hunter chase, whilst Super Dawn, Chatshow Host and Hay Girl are other contenders.

For an adjacent maiden, a case can be made for quite a few of these to ensure it could turn out to be a competitive race for the grade and preference goes to the consistent CLONMEEN. He has finished second in each of his three previous outings and may just be able to get the better of Le Boulevardier, Baldurs Gate, Gin Light and Master Psalm.

Former Irish National fourth SNUGSBOROUGH BENNY may not have won since taking a Rated Chase at that same venue three years ago, however the switch to the open lightweight division this season has already seen him go close at Umma House before he then chased home the Cheltenham Festival contender Vaucelet in a Hunter Chase. He could make a long-awaited return to the winners enclosure in this. A Rated bounced back to form at Castlelands and comes here as the obvious alternative whilst Is A Real Champ would be interesting on his first step into open company.

Preview

Both CLONMEEN and Le Boulevardier could also run earlier on the card in the adjacent maiden, but if taking up this engagement both should also be leading contenders with preference going to CLONMEEN after three second placed efforts. Knockiel Synge, Benjamin Braddock and Boseli are others to watch on the shortlist.
