Track Biography:

Quakerstown Point-to-Point is run under the auspices of the Co Clare Hunt. 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.

Preview

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

ASIAN MASTER had made a very eye-catching debut to chase home the impressive Fact To File at Bellharbour in February, a performance which was further boosted when Prince De Juilley, who had finished two places behind him, came out and won in Lisronagh recently. He therefore looks the one to beat in this ahead of Garcon Dargent who had to put a disappointing run at Rathcannon in October behind him. He had chased home the Leopardstown maiden hurdle winner Watch House Cross before that and his stable is in much better form now than had been the case in the autumn.

Preview

KNOCKRAHA LASS chased home the GAIN Mares Final winner Koyote when making her debut in Ballycahane, having been sent off as the favourite on that occasion to suggest that she had clearly been pleasing her connections. She could avenge that narrow defeat here. The returning Shewearsthewellies is the obvious danger, as she represents the in-form Harley Dunne stable having finished third to the subsequent 235,000stg seller Smiling Getaway, whilst Elusive Mae is improving and cannot be discounted.

VISIOMAN could be a first runner for Ben Halsall who may have found a nice opportunity on pointing debut here for a horse who finished place in a Galway Trial at Kilbeggan last summer and is rated 140 over fences. If there are any fitness concerns with him, Killultagh Vic is sure to expose them having won in Comea earlier in the season before finishing second at Ballyarthur last month.

Preview

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 Road To The Weir and Lead The Field.

Preview

A chance is taken that Useitorlooseit will bounce back to form with this drop in grade having twice finished placed already this season at Kinsale and Moig South. A return to the form that he showed in either of those runs would certainly leave him as the one to beat. The newcomer Whatwasigoingtosay, who is a full-sister to the track winner Aoibhes Beau, may be the biggest danger from what we have seen of the others.
