Track Biography:

Quakerstown Point-to-Point and Easter Country Festival, under the auspices of the Co Clare Hunt takes place annually on Easter Sunday. The track is based at Quakerstown in Boston, Co Clare and is set against the backdrop of the majestic Burren.

Quakerstown has proved to be an excellent source of young talent in recent years with Cheltenham Festival Grade 1 winner, Champagne Fever starting his career with a win at this meeting in 2011.

Another exciting young talent to come from this meeting was Bacardys who went on to win the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree and the Grade 1 Deloitte Novice Hurdle in Leopardstown in 2017.

The 2016 meeting also saw the exciting Next Destination land the four year old maiden and he is now a multiple Graded winner over hurdles including a Grade 1 at Naas.

It would not be a surprise to see him go one better in this. Ahead Of Schedule improved from his Borris House debut when second at Portrush, whilst Skylanna Breeze, Minella Wizard and Falethao Dana are others to consider.

GO WHATEVER has a host of form that would entitle him to win a maiden, having finished in the first four in each of his four previous outings to date, including when a close second at Armagh in February. Eurowork improved following a mid-season break when second at Castletown-Geoghegan earlier this month, whilst debut fourth Supreme Escape and Tinahely runner-up, Ultimate Getaway, are others that cannot be discounted.

BELLA BALLERINA may well have been a beaten favourite on her debut in Cragmore, however there was market confidence behind her on that occasion, and she ran a very encouraging race to a close third behind a horse that has since come out and won again by 12 lengths. Thats The Truth finished a fine second at Ballinaboola on her debut, however she then disappointed when re-appearing at Lingstown. If she can bounce back from that, she should go close, whilst The Distant Lady enters the race in good form having only been narrowly denied at Rathcannon and Old Dominon was second on her latest two outings.

KRUZHLININ must now play catch-up if he is to wrestle the champion point-to-point horse back from Longhouse Music, and connections will be hoping that he can record that he can regain the winning thread with an eighth success of the season. Longhouse Music does hold an easier alternative against her own sex at Loughanmore, leaving the Pat Doyle pair of Sydney Paget and Samanntom as the big threats. The former is the reigning champion pointer but has yet to register a win this season and will need to bounce back from his third at Rathcannon, whilst Horendus Hulabaloo has won at Kirkistown this season.

COTTON ROCK has suffered narrow defeats at both Tallow and Lisronagh in recent times, ensuring that he would be a very deserving winner of this. However he will not have things his own way as there are plenty of horses entered in this that have proven themselves more than capable of winning a maiden, including Goldazar who chased home the eye-catching Lough Derg Lyric at Kirkistown, recent Stradbally runner-up Hellenic Fire, alongside Kildrum and Clonguile Way.

MUSTMEETFORAPINT has been unable to follow up his one-length defeat at Turtulla from November in four subsequent starts. However there is plenty his favour here, as he is back from a break and this is also the easiest test that he has been set to date. Paddy Buns was placed on his penultimate starts, whilst Cape Robin has shown some improvement between his opening two runs and could continue that progressive way here.
