Track Biography:

The first race meeting to take place at Bellharbour was in 1817, when the Burren races were held at the strand at Munnia, organised by Bindon Scott and Burton Bindon who also acted as stewards.

Nowadays the races in their current format take place on the first Sunday of February. The track is situated between the wild Atlantic and the majestic Burren and this makes the point-to-point in Bellharbour one of the most picturesque meetings in Ireland.

Bellharbour has proved to be an excellent source of young talent in recent years. Gordon Elliott’s exciting chaser Ball D’Arc was a winner at Bellharbour in 2015 and has since gone on to perform at the highest level including 3rd in the Ryanair Novice Chase (Grade 1) at Punchestown and winner of two Grade 3’s at Naas.

Winner of the Pertemps Network Final at the Cheltenham Festival in 2016, Mall Dini, also won at this meeting in 2015.

Cocoroco is the only one of the 17 entrants in here with previous competitive experience, however he has finished tailed off in three runs on the level and over hurdles, leaving him with a bit to find against some well-bred individuals. The market will give the best guide as to what is expected from the newcomers.

The Donnchadh Doyle-trained KEEP WONDERING did not enjoy the smoothest of passages on his debut at Oldcastle in May, but to his credit he stayed on strongly up the hill there to finish second. With the form of that race being bolstered by three subsequent winners emerging from it, he would look to be the one to side with here to give the Wexford handler his second success in this race in as many years. Gloabal Fame offered promise when fourth in a big field four-year-old maiden at Tattersalls Farm, whilst Square Ball is an interesting newcomer in the JP McManus colours that is from the family of Grade 1 winner Snoopy Loopy.

Preview

In a wide-open looking race, it could be worth taking a chance with the Colin Bowe-trained Quivvy Lough, a horse that offered promise in her early starts but she has slightly lost her way since taking on geldings in a four-year-old maiden at Loughbrickland in the autumn. The Michael Winters pairing of Clorinka and Osca Loca have definite claims, as to would Think Of Me if bouncing back to the form of her Belclare effort from last year.

BURNING AMBITION was one of last seasons leading performers, and he returned to action this season with victory over Fennos Storm at Templencarriga last month. That horse has since advertised the form by lowing the colours of leading Cheltenham Foxhunters hope Stand Up And Fight at Kilfeacle, and so he could be tough to oppose in this. Samanntom has been extremely consistent this season and chased home Ucello Conti at Thurles last time. But it is the returning Timewaitsfornoone that really catches the eye, as the Downpatrick Hunter Chase winner ended last season by finishing second in the Champion Hunter Chase at Punchestown and will be looking to build on that here.

WEST CORK WILDWAY brings four-year-old maiden winning form into this having got off the mark at the first time of asking at Boulta before Christmas. It would be a disappointment if he could not follow up against older horses in this. Mister Murchan took a big step forward at Aghabullogue last month when benefiting from a change of tactics to come from off the pace and win an older maiden in very comprehensive fashion and he is certainly capable of putting up a big showing here.

Preview

TOUCHPAD ran a respectable race at Boulta in December behind the now three-time winner Springfield Fox, and he could be the one to follow here on what is his first start in older maiden company. Generator City disappointed at that same Boulta fixture but had gone close in a Tattersalls maiden that featured a number of bypassed fences, whilst Witness Protection, Worzel Gummidge, Mustmeetforapint and Peter The Butler are other potential contenders.
