Track Biography:

 

**Please note that the fixture on November 15th will take place behind closed doors with no spectators permitted to attend due to Government restrictions associated with the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.**

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.

LORDS DISCIPLE ran a very game race on his debut at Rathcannon to finish a very encouraging third and that experience should certainly stand to him here and may give him the edge over the Colin Bowe-trained Dorans Bridge who has to bounce back from a disappointing display at Portrush last month. Do No Wrong and the Ballyarthur final-fence faller Tommy Dillon are others that have shown promise to date.

WARGOD was all out of luck at Rathcannon on what was his first run in 12 months and he would have to be given a second chance here having shown an awful lot of encouragement on his debut at Moig South as a four-year-old. Coothill took a step forward at Damma House and is a live alternative, alongside the likes of Presenting Jeremy, Hallowed Ground and Beers And Tears and Dr Shirocco.

The absent EMILY ROEBLING could have her first start for new connections having left the Robert Tyner yard, and although she has not been seen since May 2019, the Stowlin race that she finished third in is working out particularly well. The grey Rosa Gloriosa is another that missed the entire of last season, with the pick of those that have seen more recent action being the Damma House faller Jaksporter.

SOFIAS CASTLE got the better of Lady Mangan at Tinahely last month and with that horse winning a mares open contest at Lisronagh last Saturday, the form has a strong look to it. There was not a lot separating Doyen Queen and Rosy Story at Dromahane recently, whilst Alloverafiver ended last season by beating geldings at Ballyragget and is sure to come on for her return effort at Lisronagh last weekend.

The Castletown-Geoghegan winner SOME ARE LUCKY met with defeat in Tattersalls last month, however he was far from disgraced in that effort against a number of capable types in the division and this may be a nice opportunity for him to get back to winning ways. Rewritetherules was no match for Mighty Stowaway at Tinahely but may find things easier here, whilst stable companion Peacocks Secret and the Rathcannon faller Johnny Sue are others with definite chances.
