Track Biography:

Set amongst the picturesque Blackstairs Mountains, our race track is located close to the parade ring, bookies, final fence and the finish line making it extremely assessable for all of the family to view the day’s action.

Our point-to-point is located on the grounds of the beautiful Borris House which is one of the few intact living Irish estates that can trace its history back to Brehon times, and the royal ruling families of ancient Ireland. The estate is the family home of the 16th generation of McMorrough Kavanagh’s and still contains the majority of its original furniture, paintings, documentary archives and other historic family artefacts.

Borris House is a popular wedding venue with a range of beautiful accommodation offers to choose from as well as providing tours of the estate.

Preview

Newcomers feature heavily here with only two of the 33 entries having run previously, and both Empire Success and King Conor pulled-up when making their first foray into competitive action. Of the first-timers, Ellen Doyle won a pair of races in this division last weekend and so runners from Baltimore Stables are certainly to be respected, with Derek OConnor also having enjoyed a month to remember in the division, and among his entries are two in the colours of JP McManus.

Preview

WALKING ON A DREAM would have finished third but for coming down at the final fence on his debut in Quakerstown last November in a race where the first two horses were both subsequently sold for six-figure prices. He could gain compensation here. The final fence was also the undoing of both Powerofjet and Dark Soldier last time, Millforce chased home a subsequent sales topper in Turtulla and should be in the shake-up once again.

A couple of these need to bounce back from their latest efforts, with SUITABLY SUPRISED and Whatmakes Honey B, both somewhat below their previous best last time. The former has a solid profile, and may just edge it. Of the others, Captain Kate has run two similar races, whilst Nellies Magic has finished placed in each of her last three starts.

DEAR RYTA drops down in grade, having tackled mares open company most recently when set to finish placed behind the reigning champion mare La Feline in Lisronagh. That looks like the standout piece of form from a horse that has been improving significantly of late. Kyle Valley is the obvious danger, as having she kicked off a winning run here in December that came to an end with an early fall in Carigarostig. Fancy Prospect won well last time and can step up to leave her on the shortlist.

GETAWAY KING is doubly entered on this card, but if taking up this engagement for his prospective stable debut, he could be the one to side with. Well-backed ahead of his Dromahane debut for Ellmarie Holden in November, he ran respectively to suggest that he should find things easier here. Can Daddy Dance bounced back to form last time to leave him as the danger, whilst Sir Ollie and Water Wishes are others that should be respected.

Preview

This race produced two Punchestown festival winners last year, with Bishopscourt Cup victor Fr Gilligansvoyage dead-heating with the subsequent Ladies Cup winner Three By Two, so there will be plenty of interest in this edition, and GETAWAY KING could be the one to side with. Well-backed ahead of his debut at Dromahane for Ellmarie Holden, he finished a creditable third and should find things easier on his first outing for new connections. Our Shane has to prove that he was not flattered by his Carrigarostig run, whilst Dreamers Choice has a good bit of experience.
