Track Biography:

The North Down point-to-point moved to its current course at Kirkistown in 2006 and have held three meetings each season since then. The course is located towards the eastern side of the Ards Peninsula near the village of Portavogie.  It’s in an area that was used as an airfield during the war and hence is very flat and well drained.

Kirkistown is a very level left handed course run over a circuit just short of a mile. Runners jump two fences close to the spectator’s area and a further three along the back straight.

Our November fixture is normally the final meeting of the autumn calendar in the northern area. Conversely, our February and March fixtures are two of the earliest in the northern spring calendar.

Some of the leading graduates from our point-to-point include Simonsig, Petit Mouchoir & Agus A Vic.

Preview

Colin McKeever has his string in good order and his EAGLEHILL brings plenty of form to the table, having posted a career best to finish second at Damma House earlier this month. His experience will stand to him here. The French-bred has the measure of the potentially re-opposing De Hollow Man, who had finished behind him at the Kilkenny course, whilst Peter Flood, Ellen Doyle, Mick Goff and Donnchadh Doyle, who have all had four-year-old winners in recent weeks, all have newcomers entered.

MAINE DANGER could be turned out six days after running at Tinahely, where he was unable to capitalize on his good run at Loughbrickland previously, to finish a well-held second. If bouncing back to her Loughbrickland form, she brings some of the strongest form. Brophies Doll finished behind her at Loughbrickland but has stepped up since to finish second at Loughanmore and has to be feared, whilst Shes Catching On stayed on well at Damma House and is progressing.

Preview

The well-related TRACK MAC was only narrowly denied at Tralee in the spring and he could be the one to follow on his seasonal reappearance for the Paul Cashman team. Royal Drumlee was the subject of some market support ahead of his debut at Loughanmore a fortnight ago, and whilst no match for The Echo Boy on that occasion, it was a more than pleasing debut to leave him as a big danger. Track recruit PYRIOS could be the one to watch on his pointing debut, as he joins David Christie from Philip Hobbs with a mark of 108 over hurdles.

Preview

THE ECHO BOY proved to be in a league of his own at Loughanmore on what was just his second start for the Dermot McLoughlin team, when running out a wide-margin winner of a competitive big-field contest. He can be expected to double up here and will be tough to oppose on his latest effort. The mare Summons To Court has gone from strength to strength since her facile success at Moira, and drops back from open company, whilst Sidetracked, who is a half-brother to Cue Card, got his head in front at Lisronagh recently and will be expected to step up.

Preview

It is very difficult to oppose KRUZHLININ who has breezed through his two tests to date this season and will look to become the first horse to win three races this term following victories at Moig South and Tinahely. The former Grade 3 winner has yet to be tested in this division and would certainly face his toughest test if the likes of Arbre De View, Cavite Beta, Eddies Miracle or the winner of the 2017 renewal, Chosen Dream, were to line up in opposition.

Preview

Track recruit LIKE A DEMON has not been seen in 12 months but he is a capable individual, as he proved when getting into the money on five occasions under rules. If ready for the reappearance run, he could be the one to side with. Anticur and Okey Dokey have both finished in the placings this season, with the latter finishing third on his two latest outings.
