Track Biography:

The Golden Vale hunt was revived by Tim Hyde and Michael Purcell.

The hounds were hunted by John Pickering, James Foley, Capt. Donald Swan, Rory Dicken, Tom O’Meara, Jim Quinlan and presently by Michael Comerford.

The point-to-point has been run annually at various venues. The first meeting was held at College Hill Templemore and has since been run at Thurles racecourse, Fairyhill Templemore, Coolkip Horse and Jockey, Glenbane Holycross and now at its current venue of Turtulla Thurles.

Preview

NEON DIAMOND may have only made her debut last Sunday, but she could be set for a quick return to action, and if returning in the same form she sets the standard, having finished a fine second in defeat as the pair pulled a long way clear. Half Past Tipsy represents respected connections and offered encouragement when fourth at Rathcannon in the spring. She will be expected to take a step forward and is the danger.

This has an open look to it on paper, with WOLF WALKER having finished third at Punchestown in February before disappointing subsequently at Tinahely. He has since changed stables and this could be his first start for Donnchadh Doyle. Clearisthewater was an eye-catcher in Ballindenisk on debut and is a possible danger alongside Summer Jam, with the many newcomers worth a market inspection.

LORD DESART has subsequent winners behind him when second at Curraghmore last season, and having again filled the runners-up position at Ballindenisk, he could gain a deserved maiden victory on what will be his first start for new connections. I Masked Du Potier has the advantage of recent race fitness and he dead heated for a second at Tattersalls last month with a horse who came out and won last weekend to provide a timely form boost, whilst River Agent is sure to have improved for his return at Portrush.

AMYR took a good step forward at Damma House earlier this month, and this could well be a nice opportunity for her to go one better. The returning Side Show is likely better than her latest efforts and so has to be respected, with the track recruit Carrolls Pride also not without her chance.

FOCUS POINT and Ramillies are honours even in their personal head-to-head this season, with the former having won impressively at Tinahely before pulling-up at Tattersalls more recently in the race that Ramillies finished third in. They are likely the pick for this ahead of Francois and Stranger Danger who both have placed form from recent weeks.

Preview

TAKE A HIKE can take full advantage of the 5lb mares allowance as she takes on geldings here after a very promising debut which saw her only come out second best to a more battle-hardened rival at Ballycrystal last month. Lisleigh Lad and Kyler Kane both would have place claims if recapturing their best form, whilst Val Venus hails from a stable with a good strike in recent years and would have to be respected on debut.
