Track Biography:

Rathcannon point-to-point has played host to many Hunts over the years and more recently to the Limerick Foxhounds & the Limerick Foxhounds Bruff point-to-point committee.

Many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick Foxhounds point-to-point both when racing on the past venues and presently at Rathcannon.

The track itself is a left-handed course and has been in operation since 2008.

Our race meeting is situated just 40 minutes from Limerick city and just half an hour from the scenic town of Adare, making a trip to Rathcannon point-to-point part of a perfect Family Sunday.

SOVEREIGN STAR finished third to the still unbeaten now two-time track winner Affordable Fury at Ballycahane on his debut, and whilst he was unable to follow up that initial effort in Quakerstown, he would hold big claims on his initial effort. Painted Wolf has posted two very solid efforts and has the benefit of a recent run from Castletown-Geoghegan and they have the pick of the form from those with previous experience.

GARCON DARGENT had failed to back up his fine second to the subsequent maiden hurdle winner Watch House Cross on his debut before bouncing back in a big-field Dromahane maiden on the final weekend of last season. That would look to leave him as the one to beat ahead of the experienced Shantou Moon.

FINDING FAME was no match for Hello Marie in a small-field maiden at Loughbrickland last Saturday on what was her stable debut. That should stand to her here in what would look a very open event. Castle Ruby was not too far behind Queshi Bridge on her debut and this would look like the type of race which could see her step forward, whilst the newcomers would also have to be factored in.

BROOKSWAY FAIR could well take up this engagement rather than taking on Samcro in Damma House and he caused an upset on his open debut in Umma House when slipping the field some way out. His rivals will surely be wise to that a second time, but he would still look the one to beat ahead of the mare La Feline and Dashing Perk who is an interesting addition to the sphere. He had finished fourth in the Veterans Final last year and has not been seen since falling the Aintree Foxhounters for the second year running.

There was no doubting the superiority of ROCKYS HOWYA on his debut in the sphere when he ran out the 18-length winner at Ballycrystal recently on what was also his first start for Declan Queally. He could double up here. Guillaume took a big step forward when winning in Moira and is the obvious alternative, whilst Getawayrooney makes a welcome return following a near two-year absence. She had run up a sequence of three consecutive wins and can certainly land a blow if race fit.
