Track Biography:


**Please note that the fixture on October 3rd will take place behind closed doors with no spectators permitted to attend due to Government restrictions associated with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.**

The Mid-Antrim Hunt was formally set up in the 1870’s as a harrier pack, although it was in existence for at least a hundred years before that. It was believed to have had its first official meeting in The Thatch Pub in Broughshane in 1875.

The Mid Antrim point-to-point Course is just outside Moneyglass very close to Toomebridge. Toome or Toomebridge (from Irish: Tuaim, meaning "tumulus"), is a small village and townland on the northwest corner of Lough Neagh in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. Moneyglass was at one time home to Malachy McCourt and his family who was the father of Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes, a winner of The Pulitzer Prize, the NBCC Award, The LA Times Award and the Royal Society of Literature Award.
 
Champion National Hunt jockey and 2010 BBC Sports Personality of the Year winner, Tony McCoy, who received an OBE in 2010, was born in Moneyglass.

Another sports star reared in Moneyglass was world famous Rugby Union player Willie John McBride who capped for Ireland on 63 occasions which includes 12 times as Captain.

Diana Prince is a half-sister of Talktomenow who won an English point-to-point at Easingwold at the start of his career, and she will look to follow in his footsteps having ran respectably on her debut at Ballingarry a fortnight ago. That experience from the opening day of the new season may give her the fitness edge over many of the newcomers in here, leaving Carlotalin as the potential big danger, with the grey mare, who had run on the track during the Summer, making the frame at Oldcastle.

Colin Bowe has enjoyed plenty of success over the opening two weeks of the season and GRADY HOLLOW could continue that run, as this close relation of the capable Pylonthepressure chased home Holymacapony on his debut at Kirkistown back in February. Warren Ewing introduced a smart winner at Necarne last week and in Bold Hero he has a horse who ran respectably at Oldcastle on the opening weekend of the season, whilst Do No Wrong still held the advantage at Ballingarry when coming to grief and he was offering plenty of promise to that point.

COOTHILL could be the horse to provide Colin McKeever with his first winner of the new campaign as he finished third on his debut at Turtulla last Autumn where he finished in front of a subsequent winner. With improvement likely, he could be the one to follow on his belated return to action. Colin Bowe has a strong team in Pay The Piper and Tommys Oscar, who have both been knocking on the door for some time, whilst Jetoile, who could make a quick reappearance having finished a close third in a strongly run Monksgrange maiden last Sunday, and the French-bred Figaro Des Bordes complete the shortlist.

With the 5lb mares allowance in her favour, NAVY GIRL may be able to back up her wide-margin success on the opening day of the season at Ballingarry as she takes on geldings for the first time. Handy Headon would likely have been the favourite for this before disappointing at Necarne last Saturday on his stable debut and needs to bounce back, with Duty Calls one that cannot be discounted having run well in Armagh last February.

DAZZLING GLORY had put up a brave effort from the front at Oldcastle on her debut and looked to be booked for a promising second-placed finish before coming down at the final fence. A repeat of that opening promise would see her set the standard in this, with the dangers perhaps coming from Gallopongray and Any Time, as Sketrick has been absent for just under two years.

BALLYEARL travelled very well through his race at Oldcastle a fortnight ago on what was his stable debut, and it would be no surprise to see him put that fitness edge to good use here. Castlebawn went into lockdown having run a huge race to finish second in a Downpatrick Hunter Chase at 100/1, and if the Watar gelding could return in that same form he would certainly enter the reckoning alongside Loughhill, Houston Texas, Outside The Ring and Billy Kimber.
