Track Biography:

It is with thanks to William Duffy and the Duffy Family that this wonderful facility has been made available to The Ward Union to host this important meeting on the point-to-point calendar.

Based on the foresight and dedication of such stalwarts as Standish Collen and the Craigie Family back in 1963, together with the technical skills of Clerks of the Course Ted Kelly and Al O’Connell, The Folly became known as a fair but testing challenge for horse and rider.  This high standard is maintained today by the present Clerk of the Course, Paddy Griffin and his Team.

After a break from 1974 The Folly welcomed back The Ward Union in 2012.  In the intervening years various other venues were used but thanks to the generosity of the Duffy Family The Folly has again become the ‘Home’ venue.  This is a worthy tribute to the memory of John A. Duffy and his neighbour and friend Pat Rooney.
The solid foundations laid down by this of yesteryear still stand as values held high by The Ward Union organisation of today.

A track like The Folly gives us all the opportunity to see young hopefuls fight it out for glory and it is likely you can watch the same horses and riders competing at the highest level a year or two later, even at Cheltenham itself.

MOSSY FEN PARK is the only one of these with previous experience having finished fourth at Ballinaboola a fortnight ago. He was sent off as the favourite and clearly expected to go well and that experience could him the edge over his first-time out rivals, with the market giving a good guide as to what is expected from them.

Mick Goff has had plenty of his horses hitting the frame of late and it may be worth siding with his GEORGIE BURGESS in this. He finished a fine second at Aghabullogue last month, and his conqueror from that day has already franked the form by winning again. Solo Flight did not go unnoticed in the market before his debut at Tyrella and offered plenty of promise when finishing third and is entitled to step up, whilst Solly Attwell, Beat The Poli and Annaghbeg are others not without claims.

GORTHILL has posted three impressive displays this season, winning twice and finishing a very promising second behind Ultimate Optimist at Loughanmore and he is clearly the one to beat coming into this. Dento Des Obeaux overcame a notable absence when running a crack racing to finish a close second at Ballinaboola on his return and he is an obvious danger alongside De Nordener who has not been seen since he was a beaten favourite in the Ladies Cup at the Punchestown festival.

Preview

Aloneamongmillions has not quite scaled the same heights as last season with the former two-time Tetretema Cup winner having met with defeat in each of his three starts this season, and it may be worth siding with the progressive ITS ON THE LINE. The hunter chase at Cheltenham next month was mentioned as a potential target for him after he got the better of Lord Schnitzel at Turtulla last time and he will be out to test those credentials in this. Er Dancer and the improving The Blind Piper are others to also consider.

GENTLE ANNA looked to be a very unlucky faller at the second-last fence in Tinahely last time as she was going best when coming to grief and could gain compensation here. Her stablemate Annalecka took on more experienced rivals when a close third at Quakerstown in December. The runner-up has already won since to frank that form to leave her as a contender alongside Lady Corrib who only went down by a narrow margin at Aghabullogue and is sure to be in contention once again.

Preview

SLIEVEHILL looked quite unlucky not to win at Tyrella last month on what was his first start since joining Caroline McCaldin, as he made a costly looking error at the last having been well-supported in the ring prior to the off. He could make amends here in what looks to be a competitive renewal. John The Spark has changed stables since the second of his two placed efforts and would be a popular local winner, whilst Longhouse Star, Ryehill and the track placed duo of The Flier Begley and Clarabello are others that have to be considered.
