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.

Preview

Cormac Doyle won this race two years ago with Fancy Girl, a subsequent bumper winner for Willie Mullins, and in ROCKET POP he has the horse with the pick of the previous form. That is from her fifth at Ballycahane a fortnight ago. The threats are likely to come from the newcomers, with Lets Mingle, a half-sister of Grade 2 winner Loughglynn, representing a stable that had a winner in this division last weekend, whilst the French-bred Katira Du Mestivel cost E85,000 at the store sales last year.

PARISH QUIZ does have an alternative engagement elsewhere this weekend, but if appearing here, he does a bring a strong level of form into this having finished a close third, beaten just over three lengths at Punchestown last month. He had Claim The Throne behind him on that occasion and will be looking to confirm that form once again, whilst the market will give the best guide to the many newcomers.

MOYLUSSA was quite the eye-catcher at Punchestown last month when keeping on to take second behind an impressive winner on his debut and it would be no surprise to see him go one better here. Rock On Jet also filled the runners-up spot last time and is a definite danger alongside Good Cody and Powerofjet.

SHANTOU PRINCESS took a big step forward from her debut when second at Lisronagh last month and she looks to be the one to beat in this. Ciakat has long been knocking on the door and should be in the shake-up, whilst Tell Him Nuttin finished strongly at Lingstown and it will be interesting to see if she can back that up here.

Preview

DE NORDENER has shown remarkable resilience in recent months, and he could bid to gain a fifth success of the season on what would be his eighth start since mid-January, just a week after he won over the banks at Lingstown. Dont Matter Now had been sent off as the favourite for his first start in open company when an early faller at Aghabullogue , and he is interesting following an autumn hat-trick, whilst Downthecellar is a four-time track winner over shorter trips and could get involved if recapturing his best.

Preview

Djo Dela Barriere has not had luck on his side of late, coming to grief in two of his last three starts but it is worth remembering that he finished placed over hurdles at Punchestown in November behind a subsequent Grade 2 winner. Milo Miller did not get home at Castlelands last week when looking the likely winner, whilst The Last Minute also filled the runners-up spot last time and is another for the shortlist.
