The Golden Vale hunt was revived by Tim Hyde and Michael Purcell.

The hounds were hunted by John Pickering, James Foley, Capt. Donald Swan, Rory Dicken, Tom O’Meara, Jim Quinlan and presently by Michael Comerford.

The point-to-point has been run annually at various venues. The first meeting was held at College Hill Templemore and has since been run at Thurles racecourse, Fairyhill Templemore, Coolkip Horse and Jockey, Glenbane Holycross and now at its current venue of Turtulla Thurles.

Preview

ASKINVILLAR finished third on his debut in a competitive maiden at Loughanmore that produced the impressive Lisronagh winner Lifetime Ambition and that form would bring him into the reckoning here. Dare To Begin was only beaten by two lengths at Portrush, In Disguise went well for a long way at Knockinroe, Es Perfecto has switched stables since finishing fourth at Ballindenisk on his debut whilst there are a number of well-bred newcomers that will be worth a market check.

WHITECHURCH had Tardree behind him when making his debut at Portrush last month. Whilst things did not go to plan when he re-appeared at Knockinroe a week later, this could be an ideal opportunity for him to bounce back. In a race with few pieces of form, Broomfield Boy would seem the standout danger having finished second to Groody Rover at Kildorrery.

CHAMPAGNE BEAUTY ended last season by posting a career best at Curraghmore in a race that has already produced two subsequent maiden winners. She could add to those in this on her seasonal re-appearance. Lady Violet was unable to follow up her Loughrea stable debut when running at Damma House most recently, as she was well held when coming down at the penultimate fence, but is contender alongside the likes of Queen Among Kings and Sayce Gold.

MT LEINSTER GOLD justified favourtism when easily winning her maiden by eight lengths at Dawstown in a run that signaled her out as an above average maiden winner. That would leave her as the one to beat in this. Doyen Queen has not been seen since narrowly winning at The Pigeons, and as a four-year-old winner would have to be respected, alongside last weekends wide margin Lisronagh winner Shallow Run, and Chenery, who was only narrowly defeated on her return to action at Knockinroe.

Preview

SIDETRACKED enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks last season, going from a maiden winner in November, to winning in open company three months later. He ended last season by chasing home the subsequent Aintree Foxhunters runner-up Burning Ambition at Down Royal and that is very strong form. My Story has enjoyed a similar upward curve this season and has the benefit of recent race fitness, as he became the first horse to win three races this season when bringing up his hat-trick at Knockmullen House last Sunday. Castletown-Geoghegan third Reigning Supreme, the progressive Lough Derg Lyric, and Measureofmydreams, who was sent off as a favourite at the Cheltenham Festival last March, are other contenders.

Preview

Having finished in front of two subsequent maiden winners, ROBIN IS READY was sent off as an odds-on favourite when ending his season at Dromahane. Whilst he could only manage third on that occasion, he is worthy of a second chance here. Personal Coach was only beaten by a length at Loughanmore and is sure to provide one of the biggest challenges, whilst Rathbawn Rose returns from having a foal and was placed in five of her six previous outings between the flags.
