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.

King Of Kingsfield made an impressive winning debut in this race last year and has progressed to run at the Cheltenham Festival during the week, and it will likely be the many newcomers that catch the eye today with a number of well-bred individuals. Of those with previous experience, LIEUTENANT MAYNE made up plenty of late ground to finish third at Farmacaffley and that is sure to stand to him in this.

PAINTED WOLF had the measure of the potentially re-opposing Ballyfort when the pair chased home the subsequent Grade 2 winner Rocky My Way at Castletown-Geoghegan on the opening weekend of the season. That looks to be the key piece form ahead of this and the much-anticipated return of Painted Wolf. Ballyfort bounced right back to form in Lisronagh last time, whilst Kilkee Royal and Twentytonine are others that could feature.

CARRIG KATE finished just behind a recent winner when finishing a close four at Dromahane over the Christmas period which completed a very consistent set of three back-to-back runs earlier in the season. Fresh from a break she could gain a deserved success here. Colin Bowe is not short of challengers to her with Friars Island Lady, Barrons Land and Barrack Village who are likely to be to the fore alongside Sundown Dancer and Bayonetta.

WINGED LEADER just missed out on scooping Cheltenham Festival glory on this very date 12 months ago and he can bring up a hat-trick for the current campaign as he builds towards a tilt at the Aintree Foxhunters next month. His stablemate Bold Enough enjoyed his second victory in Kirkistown last week and already has the measure of the potentially re-opposing Saint DOroux from their meeting at that Down venue in February.

I SEE YOU NOW finished third to the now dual bumper winner Stellar Story on his debut at Castlelands last season before he was a disappointing favourite at Dromahane 11 months ago. He has since joined David Christie and could be hard to beat on stable debut if reproducing that Castlelands performance. River Box ended last season on a good note when a close third at Broughshane, whilst Slievehill, Lough Des and Leish Oscars Son are others that cannot be discounted.

Preview

The victory of SHANTOU SHOW received quite the form boost at Kirkistown last Saturday when the horse that he had defeated to win his maiden came out and won by 49 lengths. He is still open to plenty of more improvement and would look to set the standard. Elusive Mae has proven to be something of a Tinahely specialist this season and has to be given plenty of credit for her defeat of geldings last time which could leave her as a big danger alongside Gorthill if he was to bounce back from a disappointing run in Oldtown.
