*************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

The Galway Blazers have a long history of holding a point-to-point dating back over a hundred years. The hunt dates from the beginning of the 19th century and has established itself as one of the famous Irish Hunts due to the goodwill and generosity of farmers and landowners throughout the county.

We run two meetings a year at Dartfield just outside Loughrea with the first one taking place in October and the second fixture being held in April. The course is situated at Dartfield Horse Museum and heritage centre which is set on 350 acres of parkland just forty minutes from Galway city.

Over the years, Loughrea point-to-point has produced many top national hunt stars such as Bewleys Berry, Boys Hurrah, Brindisi Breeze, Never Compromise and King Johns Castle.

On previous form, DONT WALK AWAY, who although a beaten favourite at Oldcastle a fortnight ago, brings the strongest form to this ahead of fellow Wexford challenger Heritier De Sivola.

Pat Doyle and Walter Connors have produced a number of talented performers through point-to-points and so their AMIRITE is sure to attract plenty of attention ahead of his debut for a stable who won the four-year-old maiden on this card 12 months ago. Monksgrange fourth Calvic is sure to benefit from that recent introduction, with Gavroche Dallier and Hard Lines others that can figure here.

Rucinski took a notable step forward on her return at Monksgrange and should not be too far away if continuing in that vein, whilst Psalmninetyone and Some Woman are other contenders.

Preview

The 125-rated Lord Schnitzel met with defeat on his pointing debut at Monksgrange, however he bumped into an above average horse for the grade on that occasion with the pair pulling over 20 lengths clear of their other rivals and he could gain a long overdue maiden success in this. Is A Real Champ is back with the same connections who started him off pointing as a four-year-old following just two efforts under rules for Paul Nicholls, whilst Rian Thomas is another with placed track form who could give a better account of himself following his recent stable debut.

Preview

Despite potentially making a quick reappearance, RED VISION could not have been more impressive when dismissing a big field with the minimum of fuss at Castletown-Geoghegan last Sunday and he could well double up. Wasdale Park was also a winner on that same card in Co. Westmeath and given that both he and stable companion Coastguard Station, who won his maiden a week earlier in Monksgrange, both have placed track form, they set a decent level opposition for the selection.
