Track Biography:

The Ballymacad hunting history dates back to 1730 and they have always strived to  every aspect they participate in be it hunting, running a hunter trials and Point-to-Point.

 The original Ballymacad Point-to-Point meeting was held in Crossakiel was the most exciting event of the year when even the local school closed for the day. In a large field on the northern slope of the hill, tents were set up and a festival atmosphere was created with women would sell the race cards and trick-of-the-loop tables were set up. The start was in the next field and all that could be seen was the jockeys colours through the hedge until they suddenly appeared jumping the last fence where the whipper-in would gallop up and down to keep the crowds back off the track right up to the winning post! Some of the natural obstacles are still used by those out hunting to this day.

In 1977 the event moved to its current venue at Newcastle, Oldcastle which provides a great natural course with great viewing for spectators.

The four year old maiden race has provided a start for some very successful horses on the track including Our Vic and the most recent being the Willie Mullins trained Live Love Laugh. The very famous Flashing Steel owned by Charlie Haughey also had a win in Oldcastle.

With its white railing, the course and facilities create the feel of being at an actual race meeting. The Clerk of the Course has spent years perfecting the ground, to ensure the best underfoot conditions are on offer to owners, trainers and jockeys.

Liam Kenny seems to have his string of horses firing on all cylinders if the recent run of form his runners in recent weeks is anything to go by. From his last five runners in the sphere, he has produced two winners, two seconds and a third, which includes FORTUNATE SOLDIER. He finished third behind the subsequent 200,000stg seller Act Of Authority on his debut in Loughrea and would look to set the standard for his from those with experience ahead of the Ballycahane third Sovereign Star.

Preview

CARLOTALIN seems to act well around here. She has finished placed on both previous visits including a narrow defeat at the hands of Subtle Robin around here on the opening day of the season. She was a shade unlucky last Saturday in Taylorstown when a final-fence mistake looked quite costly and she could gain deserved compensation here ahead of Our Hannah. She returns from a mid-season break having disappointed at Lingstown, but that was a particularly strong race and she should be more competitive in this.

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.

Preview

The Aidan Fitzgerald team have had fix placed finishers without getting a horse across the line in front in recent weeks, however BLUE FIN may be the horse to end that run of placed finishes. He stepped up from his debut at Dromahane to finish a close second in Ballycrystal and if he can continue in that improving form, he should go close. Currahill and Thomas Mor are two definite dangers having both made the frame on their latest outings, with a number of well-bred newcomers also featuring that have to given a second look.

LAND JET may not have been seen in competitive action in just under a year, however that last run in a Kilbeggan handicap hurdle saw him finished a fine second off a mark of 93. He has since changed stables, with this his first run for Peter Maher and if close to that Kilbeggan form he could be the one to side with ahead of Cinger Du Boissy who bumped into a decent type at Monksgrange last month and will certainly take advantage of any fitness concerns around the selection.

LE BOULEVARDIER may only have opened his account at Stradbally last Sunday, but he did it in fine style to follow-up two encouraging placed efforts in maiden company prior to it and his connections may have found a very winnable race for him to double-up here. Leading Force was a beaten favourite in Loughrea but should be in the mix once again here once again and is proven in this grade.
