Track Biography:

The first race meeting to take place at Bellharbour was in 1817, when the Burren races were held at the strand at Munnia, organised by Bindon Scott and Burton Bindon who also acted as stewards.

Nowadays the races in their current format take place on the first Sunday of February. The track is situated between the wild Atlantic and the majestic Burren and this makes the point-to-point in Bellharbour one of the most picturesque meetings in Ireland.

Bellharbour has proved to be an excellent source of young talent in recent years.
Dlauro, now with Joseph O’Brien won his maiden here two years ago and Gordon Elliott’s Ball D’Arc was a winner at Bellharbour in 2015 and has since gone on to perform at the highest level including 3rd in the Grade 1 Ryanair Novice Chase at Punchestown and winner of two Grade 3’s at Naas.
Winner of the Pertemps Network Final at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016, Mall Dini, also won at this meeting in 2015.
Other exciting young talent to come from this meeting include bumper winner and recent novice hurdle winner, Way Back Then and Burren Life, also trained by Gordon Elliott, a recent winner of a Novice Hurdle at Thurles and also placed in both Grade 2 and Grade 3 company over hurdles.

Rob James has been the rider to follow in recent renewals having ridden the winner of this race for the past two years including 12 months when he also trained the winner courtesy of Out Of Office. He has entered three newcomers this year in a bid to continue his winning run and whichever of Mellinium, Sixmilebridge or The Other Mozzie line up are sure to prove popular. Many of the leading yards are represented as the new season of four-year-old maidens get underway and the market will give the best guide to what is expected.

Luck has not always been on the side of runners from the John Murphy of late with a number of his runners falling in the closing stages when holding leading claims, but he will be hoping for a change of fortunes with IRIS DES ISSARDS. That French bred kept on to take third at Boulta on his debut and looks to bring the strongest form into this. Dream Jet made his debut in a Borris House race which produced a smart winner and it would be no surprise to see him step-up, whilst Magic Salder has plenty experience to draw upon.

Maike Magnussen has been a handler to follow this season with her yard boasting a phenomenal 60 per cent strike rate for the campaign and EASY TO FOLLOW could keep her winning run going. She was only denied by a short-head at Dromahane at the end of December in a race which received a boost last week when the horse that finished immediately behind her won comfortably at Cragmore. Desperado Genie is the obvious danger as she had very little luck in running at Tattersalls on her debut, getting hampered before the last when finishing second. She cannot be discounted, whilst the Turtulla third Iriskana is another for the shortlist.

The Cheltenham Festival was being spoken about for ROCKYS HOWYA after he brushed aside the reigning champion mare La Feline to win at Aghabullogue by 29 lengths and he bids to become the first horse this season to move onto the five-winner here. Some Are Lucky won twice in the autumn and returns from a mid-season break, whilst his stable companion Aloneamongmillions will be hoping to leave to defeats behind him. Bold Enough and Keep Me Posted are others for the shortlist.

DESERT CAVE represents arguably the most in-form pointing stable in the country at present and fresh from a 12th win of the campaign for the stable last weekend, they could continue their winning streak with the Ballycrystal winner. He is one of two four-year-old auction maiden winners among the entries for this as he could be joined by the Corbeagh House winner Iron Allen, whilst Red Ford Lad beat two subsequent winners when making a winning debut at Ballycrystal 12 months ago.

ASIAN MASTER was a beaten favourite on his return to action at Corbeagh House before Christmas but he could be worth a second chance as he ran well to get within six lengths of Fact To File at this fixture 12 months ago. His conqueror has remained unbeaten since by winning a Leopardstown bumper at Christmas for Willie Mullins and it looks like form to follow. Longhouse Star and Tara Cove both hold alternative entries elsewhere on the weekend but if either were to appear here in opposition they could press the selection.
