Track Biography:

The Ballymacad hunting history dates back to 1730 and they have always strived to  every aspect they participate in be it hunting, running a hunter trials and Point-to-Point.

 The original Ballymacad Point-to-Point meeting was held in Crossakiel was the most exciting event of the year when even the local school closed for the day. In a large field on the northern slope of the hill, tents were set up and a festival atmosphere was created with women would sell the race cards and trick-of-the-loop tables were set up. The start was in the next field and all that could be seen was the jockeys colours through the hedge until they suddenly appeared jumping the last fence where the whipper-in would gallop up and down to keep the crowds back off the track right up to the winning post! Some of the natural obstacles are still used by those out hunting to this day.

In 1977 the event moved to its current venue at Newcastle, Oldcastle which provides a great natural course with great viewing for spectators.

The four year old maiden race has provided a start for some very successful horses on the track including Our Vic and the most recent being the Willie Mullins trained Live Love Laugh. The very famous Flashing Steel owned by Charlie Haughey also had a win in Oldcastle.

With its white railing, the course and facilities create the feel of being at an actual race meeting. The Clerk of the Course has spent years perfecting the ground, to ensure the best underfoot conditions are on offer to owners, trainers and jockeys.

Preview

WILD NEPHIN was the subject of market support prior to his debut and although a beaten favourite, he was only beaten four lengths and it would be no surprise to see him take a step forward in this for the Colin Bowe team. Many of his dangers hold a number of potential engagements this weekend, but Belclare runner-up Nowwhatdoyouthink, and the Tinahely fourth Oak Grove look to be the pick of his rivals.

Preview

COLLINE FLEURIE only found one rival too good when making her debut in testing conditions at Liscarroll last month. The form of that race looks strong which could leave her as the one to side with in this. Fine As Wine is her obvious danger if appearing here as she too finished second last time, that was when she re-appeared at Belclare following a mid-season break, whilst Barrons Land looks next best.

Preview

Dorking Cock was quite an emphatic winner of this race 12 months ago, but the nine-year-old comes into this years race having pulled-up at the recent Cheltenham Festival and it may be worth siding with BOLD ENOUGH. He was one of the easiest winners of the Barbour Cup when defeating the potentially re-opposing Aloneamongmillions just last Sunday. He could get his fourth win on the bounce. Stablemate Ultimate Optimist gives David Christie a strong hand in this, whilst the returning grey Diese Des Bieffes could also be a factor if putting his best foot forward.

Preview

PAINTED WOLF and Ballyfort both chased home a subsequent Grade 2 winner on the opening weekend of the season in Castletown-Geoghegan in what would look to be the strongest piece of form coming into this. Painted Wolf has not been seen since but will be expected to confirm that performance on his return. Squire Ohara and Isholo Du Vivien are likely next best.

Preview

SEATTLE SEAHAWK bounced back to form at Monksgrange recently when only going down by the narrowest of margins in a thrilling four-way finish and he would look the potential answer to this if reproducing that form. Its Just Not In It was done no favours by a late mistake on his debut in Lisronagh as he had jumped the last in front. They certainly set the standard in this.

KEEP ME POSTED has seemed to be one of the leading horses in the winners division this season, as he got within two lengths of the wide-margin Limerick Hunter Chase winner Ultimate Optimist at Quakerstown in the autumn and comes here fresh off a break following his Ballindenisk success. Great Pepper is an obvious danger after his Ballycrystal success, but in reality, there are any number of dangers in what looks a competitive race as the long absent Hes Rockin and Cash Book won their maidens in good style, whilst Magic Sadler has been a big improver of late.
