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.

Preview

Pat Doyle won this race 12 months ago with a French-bred Asterion Forlonge, and the Tipperary handler, who has already saddled a winning four-year-old this year, has two potential runners entered this year, including another French-bred, the Gigginstown House Stud-owned Fourneux Disanka. Colin McKeever and Wilson Dennison produced Flemenshill to win this race two years ago and they could run Ardhill here, who is out of a half-sister to Gold Cup winner Denman.

Preview

WILLIE BUTLER ran a big race on his debut, as he finished a fine second in a big-field maiden at Tattersalls Farm in December, behind a horse that has since gone on to sell for a six-figure price. Gold Des Bois held every chance when coming down at the final fence at Templencarriga on his debut last month, and he will be expected to go close here for Peter Fahy and Nigel Baring. Eclair Surf was not beaten far at Lisronagh and is an obvious alternative for Cormac Doyle, who won a similar race at Bellharbour last week.

GOLDEN NOMAD will look to become the latest autumn four-year-old winner to follow up in winners company as he reappears for the first time since his Toomebridge success on the opening day of the season. Hi Murphy goes in search of the hat-trick here, having defeated School Lane most recently, a horse that has gone on to run well under rules, by finishing second at Down Royal recently, which is a nice form boost, whilst Getaman was a wide-margin winner at Portrush in October, and his return has been eagerly anticipated.

Preview

Despite being a race that excludes Graded winners, this race has attracted a very strong entry, spear-headed by Cheltenham Foxhunters hopeful UCELLO CONTI who will be out to record his third success since the turn of the year by following up his recent Thurles Hunter Chase victory. Balnaslow won the Aintree Foxhunters last year, but has not been seen since well-beaten by his stablemate Chosen Dream at Stratford in June, Arbre De, Cavite Beta, Home Farm and Some Are Lucky are all possible contenders.

Preview

This is a wide-open race where the tentative selection is given to the Dermot McLoughlin-trained KILEEN GIRL, a horse that brings the strongest form into the race on what she produced at Ballingarry at the end of last season. Despite having some support in the market at Tattersalls Farm on her re-appearance, she could only manage eighth. Rubiana was placed on her penultimate start, whilst there are a number of newcomers from respected yards that are worth a market check.

Preview

Track recruit SMOKING DIXIE led the field up most of the home straight at Tyrella a fortnight ago, only to be headed by his fast finishing stable companion in the closing stages. He would seem the one to beat here. Touchpad is making his debut in older maiden company, and has to be respected on that basis, whilst Witness Protection, Mytersoryours, Diegos Way and Royal Drumlee are others for the shortlist.
