Track Biography:

The firsts set of National Hunt Committee rules were published in 1889 and Kilkenny Hunt with its long illustrious history of holding point-to-point meets can trace its first meeting back to then. Point-to-point meetings were held under the master ship of Ikey Bell at Lacken, near Bonnettstown in 1909 and from 1914 meetings were at Bishopslough.

Thereafter meetings continued to circulate around the country, 1926 in Ballyfacey, 1927 Rahelty, 1948 Stonecarthy, 1949-1959 Wollengrange, Gowran 1960-1989. From there the point-to-point moved to Brambelstown, Kilbline, Grennan and then to its current location in Damma House.

We hold two meetings during the season, one in November and one in May. Our tracks over the years have seen many winners go on to establish themselves amongst the elite of the racing world, dual Welsh National winner Mountainous and Tranquil Sea to name but a few.

Preview

An unlucky final fence faller at Tyrella, BROTHER BYRNE was unable to back that up when disappointing at Loughanmore later in the spring. That was not a true showing from the Kayf Tara gelding who can be expected to prove a stronger force here. In contrast, The Whiskey Man ended last season with a career best, when he finished a close third, whilst the likes of Texas Gold, Pasvolsky and Tinahely eye-catcher Sponthus are others that can make an impact.

LADY VIOLET put in what was a definite career best on her stable debut at Loughrea three weeks ago when she outran her big price to finish a fine second and could be the one to side with in this. Style It Out was a beaten favourite at Tinahey on her return to action which was a disappointment, but she is capable of better, but would have to overturn the placings with Mamaslittlestar who finished a staying-on second in that Tinahely maiden, whilst The Wise Maid has struggled to complete in recent times but was placed on debut.

BAIGNARD may not have been able to get his head in front for favourite backers at Loughrea two weeks ago, but he was only beaten by a length on that occasion and can make amends here. What About Time was no match for Honest Exchange on his return to action at Tinahely recently, and ran well for a long way before tiring up the hill. It would be no surprise to see him get closer, whilst Whats The Problem went close at Stradbally on his penultimate outing and cannot be discounted.

This would look to be an ideal opportunity for Lough Derg Lyric to regain the winning thread, having failed to complete a hat-trick of wins on the bounce when bumping into a smart sort at Broughshane. Ran Rite won easily at Tinahely two weeks ago and has that race fitness on his side, whilst Carrig Hill, a two-time winner from late last season, is another for the short list.

The former Troytown Chase winner MALA BEACH achieved far more than any of these rivals on the track and comes into his open debut with a rating of 152, ensuring he is the definite horse to beat. Better B Quick has already lowered the colours of a highly rated track winner from the Gordon Elliott yard and goes in search of a third win in three weeks, whilst My Story is a horse of real interest on what would be his open debut, having easily risen through the ranks in winners company.

Preview

DOUBLE SMART finished in front of two subsequent winners when she finished a fine second on the opening day of the new season at Toomebridge. With the form of the race working out well, she could be the one to side with here, particularly as she seems to have improved for a change of stables over the summer. The Brig looked like he was destined to finish second when parting company with his rider at the final fence at Loughrea and is the big danger, whilst Kalamkan has a mark of 92 over hurdles and may be able to get involved.
