Track Biography:

The Galway Blazers have a long history of holding a point-to-point dating back over a hundred years. The hunt dates from the beginning of the 19th century and has established itself as one of the famous Irish Hunts due to the goodwill and generosity of farmers and landowners throughout the county.

We run two meetings a year at Dartfield just outside Loughrea with the first one taking place in October and the second fixture being held in April. The course is situated at Dartfield Horse Museum and heritage centre which is set on 350 acres of parkland just forty minutes from Galway city.

Over the years, Loughrea point-to-point has produced many top national hunt stars such as Bewleys Berry, Boys Hurrah, Brindisi Breeze, Never Compromise and King Johns Castle.

Preview

FIER JAGUEN only managed to get to the halfway point at Taylorstown last month before he fell at the seventh fence having been sent off as the favourite following his debut fourth at Lisronagh. Face The Odds whom he finished just a head behind at the Tipperary course has since won by five lengths at Dawstown and that form boost would leave him as the one to beat. Clondaw Pretender has twice had to settle for the third spot, but is improving, whilst Ahead Of Schedule and The Bosses Oscar are others to have made the frame this season.

Preview

The Denis Murphy stable have been in good form of late and that run could continue here with BACKINTHEGAME. That Presenting gelding was only beaten by two lengths in Dawstown and should be suited by conditions. Sparta Maestro has not been seen since coming down at the final fence in Inchydoney 12 months ago, but had shown promise prior to that point, whilst the recently placed Empire Steel is another one to consider.

Preview

ATLANTIC BLAZE finished in front of the subsequent Boulta winner Kilbarry Lilly when she made her debut at Toomebridge on the opening day of the season, and with that horse also going on to land a Leopardstown maiden hurdle, there can be confidence in the opening performance that Noel Kellys charge produced. The Colin Bowe quartet have all finished among the placings in the past including Courtown runner-up Princess Cave, whilst Frank And Honest is closely tied to subsequent the now two-time winner Achy Breaky Heart on her Tyrella debut and is worth a second chance.

SOME ARE LUCKY has only met with defeat in one of his eight starts between the flags this season and goes in search of a fourth consecutive victory here. The Sam Curling-trained geldings has the measure of the potentially re-opposing Samanntom on their meeting at Punchestown back in February, whilst his stable companion Longhouse Music won her tenth race of the campaign at Dromahane two weeks ago. Of the others, Electric Concorde won well at Ballyragget, when get got the better of All Hell Let Loose who could also feature here.

MYRONS could return back between the flags here having acquitted himself well in the hunter chase sphere where he finished within five lengths of Ucello Conti at Thurles. That form would leave him as the one to beat in this. Oscar Academy goes in search of a hat-trick following his latest success at Bellurgan Park, whilst Solo Cargo and Clutch were also among the winners last time.

MUSTMEETFORAPINT returned back to his best when he was only beaten by two lengths at Stowlin a fortnight ago, and the drop back into adjacent company could be rewarded here. Friary Land finished third on his penultimate start at Ballysteen and that should allow him to get competitive here, whilst Rockin Roxtown and Paddy Burns are others that could figure.
