Track Biography:

Formed in 1734, the Limerick Foxhounds have their kennels in Clonshire, Adare, Co. Limerick and are a very well established pack in the West of Ireland.

Our annual point-to-point has been a large part of the hunts calendar for many years and continues to be a vital race meeting on the Spring circuit.

The current Limerick race track staged our point-to-point for many years when under the ownership of the late Lord Harrington. Many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick Foxhounds point-to-point both when racing on the past venues and presently at Rathcannon.

Our race meeting is situated just 40 minutes from Limerick city and just half an hour from the scenic town of Adare, making a trip to Rathcannon point-to-point part of a perfect Family Sunday.

RIDE THE STORM came up against two more experienced types when he made his debut earlier this month and was the first of the newcomers to finish. That initial effort should leave him as one of the leading contenders for this. The Colin Bowe pairing of Getmegold and Erne River both also made the frame on their debuts. The latter caught the eye when coming from off the pace to finish third at Tinahely just last Sunday, whilst the Dare To Begin and Ocean Drifter are others for the shortlist.

There are no less than seven last time out winners in this contest, with Lisronagh winner CROSSLING LINES chief among them, having won on debut by a wide margin earlier this month. Aloneamongmillions does not have the benefit of recent race fitness, having not been seen since he won his maiden back in March at Ballyragget, however he was well-backed and beat three subsequent winners in the process ensuring it is form to note, as too is Roundstone, who has changed yards since winning his maiden by a wide margin two years ago.

LONGHOUSE MUSIC is also entered at Kirkistown this weekend, but this would look a much straight forward task for her, given that she easily dismissed For Rita when they met two weeks ago at Lisronagh. Sliabh Mhuire Lass would need to step up from her Cork effort last Sunday, whilst Touchy is another set for a quick re-appearance, but she ran well in a competitive Tinahely contest and has place claims.

Preview

ON CALL returns to point-to-points with a mark of 111 over hurdles which should see him have little trouble winning an older maiden, having previously finished second in this sphere as a four-year-old. He has the standout form ahead of his stable debut. Acceptable Risk would look the big danger as he returned from a two year absence to finish second behind a smart looking sort for the age group at Lisronagh, Tippinawaynow, Kildrum, Baron Du Plessis and The Bonny Boy are others that cannot be dismissed.
