Track Biography:

Ballindenisk point-to-point has a long history of holding point-to-points, dating back over a hundred years. The original point-to-point races were held over a banks course in the 1890’s.

The course is situated on the farm of Robert Fell and is also used for eventing as well as having hosted European and World Championships. Set in a rural area near Watergrasshill the course is made up of volunteer racing enthusiasts which includes former jockey/trainer and Clerk of the course John O’Callaghan.

Over the years Ballindenisk has produced many top class horses that have gone on to sell for large amounts of money in the UK sales. These include Conna Castle, Native Jack, Artic Copper and Awbeg Prince.

Preview

Things did not look to go to plan on debut for IN LIMBO at Tattersalls but he was still able to finish third and beaten just under five lengths to suggest that with a more straight-forward journey, he could be the one to side with here. Captain Butler made up some good late ground at Tinahely and will have learned from that, with Scandisk Park, River Voyage and Fralimonti Bilbery others for the shortlist.

THE DOYEN CHIEF was well-supported ahead of his debut at Lingstown last Sunday, and although he got no further than the first, this looks a nice opportunity for him to gain compensation if that market support is to be justified. The Butler Yeats and Barry The Rockstar would look to bring the pick of the form in an open race.

CHATHAM STREET LAD is a former winner of the Caspian Caviar Gold Cup at Cheltenham and although no match for the subsequent Gold Cup winner A Plus Tard when third in the Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock last year, he is sure to prove popular on his debut in this sphere. Killultagh Vic has not been seen since winning at Quakerstown on Easter Sunday, whilst Lord Schnitzel can be forgiven his return run.

SOPHIE GOLD was quite an eye-catcher when finishing a close second at Moig South last Sunday and if coping with the quick turnaround she would look to be the one to beat. Lyrid also filled the runners-up spot on her debut which came at Kinsale five weeks ago, whilst Cooleenymore is another horse that cannot be discounted.

This could be a nice opportunity for DESERT HEATHER to bring up her hat-trick having won well at both Ballycrystal and Kinsale since changing stables over the off season. Carrig Wells ran well in a hunter chase at the end of last season and can get involved on her re-appearance, whilst Tender Heart was a wide-margin winner last time.

Preview

JOHNGUS was very disappointing in the Ladies national at the Fairyhouse Easter Festival in the spring, but prior to that had twice finished placed over fences on the track to suggest that he could be well up to taking a race like this at the same fixture that he made his debut in four years earlier. Breeze Of Wind has long been knocking on the door and ran well in similar races last season to suggest he is the chief danger on his return for the same stable that won this race two years ago.
