Track Biography:

Point-to-Point horse racing is a longstanding tradition proudly kept alive in Ireland for the past 250 years and is frequently the starting ground for the new future young stars of the racing circuit. The North Galway Hunt host their annual Point-to-Point fixture in early March each year at Michael Cunningham’s Land in Golden Park, Belclare which is situated just off the N17 between Galway city (33km) and Tuam (7km), and is considered by Point-to-Point experts to be very safe and ideal location for racing, as the land supports a level course with no rise or descent on the circuit.

Point-to-Point racing has been described as the lifeblood of the racing industry in Ireland. For many it is their first introduction to racing, either as participants or as spectators. Many of today’s riders, owners, trainers and officials all received their first taste of racing on the Point-to-Point circuit. The North Galway Point-to Point have had the honour of hosting the maiden race in Belclare for many years, famously won by the legendary ‘Best Mate’, before going on to win three Cheltenham Gold Cups and ‘The Thinker’ who also ran at the North Galway Point-to-Point and subsequently won a Gold Cup race.

We are very lucky that our fixture typically draws a large entry with trainers coming from all over the country to run their horses with us. The continued success of the Point-to-Point in Belclare is much to the credit of the North Galway Point-to-Point Committee who work hard to make this annual sporting event an enjoyable and safe day for participants and spectators alike on the eve of Cheltenham.

WAL BUCKS faired best of those with previous form when he finished a very creditable fourth in a red-hot maiden in Oldtown last month. The third horse further franked the form by winning in Ballycahane last Sunday and this French bred would look to set the standard as improvement is likely. The newcomers are likely to offer the pick of the danger and the market will give the best guide to their chances.

Preview

Maike Magnussen has had her horses in flying form for much of this season and EASY TO FOLLOW could bring her a seventh success of the season following two smart performances to date including when chasing home a horse that recently sold for 175,000stg at the Cheltenham sales. Glendaars Fortune is the obvious danger after her fine second on debut, whilst the returning Fine As Wine cannot be discounted as she offered plenty of promise when fourth in a decent Tattersalls maiden in the autumn.

KEEP ME POSTED has proven to be a top winners grade performer this season with notable performances in Quakerstown and Ballindenisk and he could prove too good for his rivals as returns from a short break. There are plenty of possible dangers however, none more so than Asian Master who deservedly opened his account in Quakerstown, whilst Now Is The Hour offered a great deal of promise when running out a wide-margin winner on debut in Cragmore.

KILKEE ROYAL has a host of entries across the weekend this would like the easiest of them as there is not a great deal of previous placed form on offer. He is a horse that more than outran his starting price when second to a smart sort at Kirkistown last month in a race that has already produced a subsequent winner. Livin On Lucco, Dream Jet and Illogical Logic rank as the likely threats.

MISS CARLI FAY bring the only previous form into this contest and it could certainly stand to her particularly as she posted her best effort to date in Ballycahane last Sunday.

Preview

CLARABELLO only found one rival too good on his return to the pointing fields in Farmacaffley last month and it would certainly not be a surprise to see him go one place better here. Dylans Delight would have gone close but for unseating at the last in Ballycahane last week, but it could well be Tohellortoconnacht that that is the main danger as he just missed out in a tight finish to a Thurles handicap hurdle on his penultimate start when rated 90.
