Track Biography:

The Tynan and Armagh hunt can be traced back as far as 1840, when Sir James Stronge of Tynan Abbey estate started the pack at his own expense calling it the Tynan Harriers. The Tynan Harriers sometimes hunted with Lord Waterford’s Armagh Harriers and from these two the Tynan and Armagh hunt was born in 1895.

The first point-to-point was organised in 1895 and has remained at Farmclaffey since then making it one of the oldest point-to-points on the fixture list.

Over the years, Farmacaffley point-to-point has produced many top national hunt stars such as 2002 Grand National winning Bindaree and Cheltenham Gold Cup runner-up Truckers Tavern.

ANSEANACHAI CLISTE has bumped into some nice types this season including the late You Must Know Me and Need To Know, the latter whom he chased home at Tinahely just 6 days ago and this drop down in grade could provide him with a deserved maiden success. Celtic Thunder was far from disgraced in some competitive Hunter Chases and that entitles him to hold strong claims against the selection.

Preview

TEMPLEHILLS was not beaten all that far in a four-year-old maiden at Kirkistown almost a year ago, and with further progression likely in the intervening period, he enters the race with strongest form in the book. Porters Lane produced a career best to place in a small field race at Kirkistown last time, and as this will be his third start in a month, he will have fitness on his side. The newcomers will likely play a leading role with Snow Puma who is out of a 5-time winner and Shark Suarez who both represent connections who enjoyed success last weekend, sure to be of interest.

ALKAJAZZ has been knocking on the door of a maiden win for some time and was only narrowly touched off at Tyrella earlier this month. Therefore this looks a very winnable opportunity for her. Legacy Phoenix posted a career best at Tyella when filling the runners-up spot, so she is clearly progressing, whilst Doesntbotherme, a faller at Tinahely just 6 days ago, is another with recent form who is capable of going close.

Preview

THE HARD HAT holds the fitness edge over Carsonstown Boy which could prove decisive as the former is a three-time winner this season, however he does have to bounce back to form following a below par effort at Tyrella earlier this month. Carsonstown Boy finished in front of subsequent Punchestown winner Luska Lad on his re-appearance run in late September, however he has not been seen since then. Boruing Up A Storm steps up to Open company for the first time and will be an interesting prospect, whilst Current Exchange is another with claims at his best.

CELTIC THUNDER was running well in Hunter Chase company at Down Royal and Thurles before coming to grief, and this drop in grade could see him return to winning ways. Kraken Tale and Ethan Edwards are closely matched on their meeting at Maralin, and both will be there or thereabouts, whilst Tareesh Lane is another dropping back from Hunter Chase company and he will likely be a more competitive prospect in this grade.

Preview

NOVO DAWN bumped into an above average type at Tyrella earlier this month, and providing there is nothing of that standard in opposition here, he is the one to beat. M M D Sizer is an interesting recruit between the flags having run just the once previously in a Bumper at the Punchestown Festival. Johnnyonepunch was placed on his latest two starts, whilst Ravenhill will have benefited for his re-appearance run at Punchestown a fortnight ago and can be a more competitive prospect here.
