Track Biography:

The Route hunt have held point-to-point meetings at a number of venues since the 1930’s, before returning to their traditional picturesque venue of Portrush in 2016.

Previous track winners to have won at Portrush include one of the most talked about national hunt horses in training at the moment, Finian’s Oscar who won his four-year-old maiden at Portrush in October 2016 before selling for £250,000 at the Cheltenham sale the following month.

The charming Portrush is a holiday destination for many people, boosting the Famous Barry's amusements. Near the Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle and Bushmills Distillery to name a few places of interest. The seaside town of Portrush is the ideal venue for an event of this nature as there is plenty of accommodation, so why not spend the weekend in the North of Ireland while taking in the point-to-point racing.

Preview

Having won this race 12 months ago, Donnchadh Doyle will be out to follow up with VANDEMERE looking a big contender here having third on his debut in a very competitive Borris House contest. The Graham McKeever-trained Fourtout made eye-catching ground inside the final half-mile on his debut at Lingstown earlier this month, when coming from off the pace to finish an encouraging third behind a horse that subsequently realised 370,000 pounds at the Cheltenham Festival sale. That makes him of interest here. Favori De Champdou finished just 10 lengths in arrears of a Gigginstown House Stud winner at Kirkistown on his debut and is entitled to have improved, whilst all the leading yards are represented with potential newcomers and the market will give the best guide as to what can be expected from them.

Preview

BRIEF AMBITION looked the likely winner on his debut at Punchestown, only to fluff the last and give away his chance to come home in front. He could gain compensation here. The luckless Stansfield may not have completed from three starts, but he was running a fine race at Boulta most recently when exiting at the last and his stable haven enjoyed success around here in the past, whilst Old Jewry is worth a second chance on his debut at Loughbrickland, having disappointed lately at Turtulla and Ask Politely finished a fine second in testing conditions at Ballyarthur.

Preview

FYFIN PATSY has failed to complete her opening two outings, however with a clear round of jumping she could be the one side with, having looked destined for third in a competitive race at Punchestown that is already beginning to work out well. Frilly Frock has run some solid races to date, including when third at Turtulla behind a horse that franked the form by winning again at Durrow last Saturday, and she too should have claims in what looks to be a wide-open race on paper. Annie McCarroll is another that cannot be discounted, particularly on what she produced on her penultimate start against geldings.

Preview

Sambremont has proven himself to be particularly effective around here in the past, winning this race last year, having also gone down by neck in 2017 to the very capable Hunter Chaser Sizing Coal. His stablemate WINGED LEADER may prove to be a tough nut to crack on two fine seconds at Kirkistown and Armagh for local owners. Longhouse Music returns from a short break having been in peak form throughout autumn, the 13-year-old veteran Cavite Beta is a six-time open winner that still holds claims, whilst Tell Us More only got as far as the first at Kirkistown earlier in the month and will be hoping to make amends.

Preview

The Sean McParlan-trained Royal Drumlee won with a bit in hand at Armagh and will be looking to follow up a month later here, however it may be the two mares that are worth following here. MADERA MIST was an impressive maiden winner at Borris House, whilst Cool Dove won by a wide-margin at Turtulla, and both will have the benefit of the valuable mares allowance. Previous course winner Getaman has failed to fully recapture that form, whilst Colonel Sam bumped into a smart sort at Boulta.

Preview

This could be an ideal opportunity for SAXOPHONIC to gain compensation for his final fence departure at Kirkistown recently, having looked destined to go very close at the time. Molpeg was unable to follow up his Tattersalls Farm run last time, but can bounce back, whilst Carcano is the more unknown factor, given that he has not been seen in 15 months, however he does bring four-year-old maiden form into the race which would bring him into the reckoning.
