Track Biography:

The point-to-point course is located at Loughanmore, Dunadry near Templepatrick.

Our landowner, Wilson Dennison has owned and produced a number of top-class national hunt horses including graded winners Yorkhill, Shaneshill, and Bellshill.

Our point-to-point is proud to have launched the career of many talented young horses who have gone on to make six figure sums at the horse-in-training sales in both Ireland and the UK.  Some of the leading names include the Cheltenham festival winner Ted Veale and the Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Truckers Tavern.

Its reputation as one of the premier tracks in the country, ensures that is has a particularly strong recent roll of honour, with the four-year-old maiden that is run at their Easter fixture really standing up to the test of time.

If you would like to satisfy your sweet tooth we have a doughnut stall and an extensive sweet and chocolate stand that sells a selection of delicious goodies. There is also an ice cream van in attendance on the day.

Alternatively, why not come along early and enjoy a picnic before the action gets under way or take a break midway through the day to refuel from the boot of your car.

Our extensive car park is the perfect location to relish the atmosphere of the races whilst entertaining friends and family.

This could be a red-hot race by adjacent standards if the last-time out maiden winners COCO MASTERPIECE and Abbeyhill were to cross paths here. Preference would go to the former who won with what had seemed to be a lot up his sleeve on debut at Nenagh for Ben and Stuart Crawford and he could well double up here.

TOOMBRIDGE left his Turtulla debut, which had come at a time when there was a cloud over his stables runners, well and truly behind him when second in a decent Castletown-Geoghegan contest earlier this month and he would be expected to go one place better here for local connections. Dream View also hit the crossbar when we last saw him in action, that came around Ballinaboola in February, although the race has yet to produce a subsequent winner, which may leave Ballyferris, Kinalearty and Dunboy Lad as others to consider.

A second chance is given to ROCK THE HILL here. She had won a decent maiden at Ballycrystal in February before running no sort of race when stepping into winners company at Liscarroll. This would look to be a very nice opportunity for her to bounce back to form. If she was unable to do so, Alice OByrne is the obvious alternative. She should certainly have benefitted for her run at Taylorstown last weekend, her first run since October and has the more established form. Presenting Ana bounced back last time in Dromahane and is next best.

The return of DORKING COCK has been eagerly anticipated since he was a shock 22/1 winner of the Hunter Chase at Down Royal over Christmas. We have not seen him since, but he could feature here against a number of horses that he had in behind him on that occasion, including the recent Taylorstown winner Some Man and Poli Roi. Fils Spirituel may still be a maiden over obstacles, having only won a bumper in France, but he is an interesting entry here in the Donnelly colours of Shishkin and Al Boum Photo.

This has a very open look to it and it may be worth taking a chance on SIFAKA in the hope that he can bounced back to the form which had seen him finish a close third to No More Lockdown at Corbeagh House before Christmas. Sizing Joshua finished second in winners company at Stradbally, however there were just two finishers in a grief-stricken race which does make the performance hard to assess and so Caroles Templer may be a more safer alternative to the selection.

NEAR DARK was well-backed at Monksgrange last month, so much so that she was sent off at the top of the market for a competitive big-field maiden. She may well have met with defeat in the run, however she had to gain a lot of respect as she put up a decent display to finish a close third and is expected to go two places better here. You No Me Too Well is a more experienced type and is sure to be in the mix once again but she may just be vulnerable to an improving type.
