Rathcannon point-to-point has played host to many Hunts over the years and more recently to the Limerick Foxhounds & the Limerick Foxhounds Bruff point-to-point committee.

Many talented riders and horses have graduated from the Limerick Foxhounds point-to-point both when racing on the past venues and presently at Rathcannon.

The track itself is a left-handed course and has been in operation since 2008.

Our race meeting is situated just 40 minutes from Limerick city and just half an hour from the scenic town of Adare, making a trip to Rathcannon point-to-point part of a perfect Family Sunday.

Having sent out their first winner of the season in a similar event at Tattersalls last Sunday, GARCON DARGENT could continue that winning form in this age division as he went close in Dromahane at the back end of last season, beating subsequent winner Crypto Currency by seven lengths in the process. Dogem By Design represents another stable that were in the winners enclosure last weekend and he finished fourth in Moira on his debut which he can build on.

The majority of these have not previously seen competitive action and the market will give the best guide as to what is expected of them in this race which is restricted to horses bought at the store sales for E25,000 or less. Of those with form, COLS SOBAR stands out having finished third in a similar contest at Ballingarry back in May. That experience should certainly stand to him here.

ROSE OF COOLBALLY was unable to back-up her Dromahane debut where she had chased home the subsequent Hunter Chase-placed Clounts Glory, when pulling-up at Ballindenisk. The six-year-old, who is her stables first point runner of the new season, is worth a second chance in this. Katlaur ended last season with a career best in Kirkistown and can be expected to pick up here where she had left off, ahead of Sadie Yeats and the twice-placed Spare Wheel.

This has a very open look to it and it may be worth turning to one of the newcomers such as VIKINGS WAY who has an eye-catching pedigree being a full-brother of Vanillier, the winner of the Grade 1 Albert Bartlett Novices Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March. Of those with form, Likable Rogue is a 90-rated hurdler that has a number of respectable pieces of track form to his name, whilst Your Own Story stepped up from his debut in a bumper to finish fourth at Ballindenisk last term.

ON THE SOD ended last season by winning a Downpatrick Hunter Chase in very taking fashion and he is clearly a horse on the upgrade. Like the 2019 Aintree Foxhunters runner-up Burning Ambition, he would be making his re-appearance here and if there are any fitness concerns around the pair, Samanntom will certainly expose them, as he is race-fit following his second consecutive win last Sunday but does have alternative entries. He had the measure of Snugsborough Benny on that occasion, whilst Fennos Storm is a former top hunter chaser who is also back pointing.

Preview

LORD SCHNITZEL was a very capable track horse at his peak and he belatedly opened his account with a facile success at Loughrea and he could follow up in this. Coastguard Station won his second race of the campaign on the same card, albeit in a weaker race to this but has definite claims as he seeks a hat-trick, whilst recent maiden winner Chato Santana and Umma House winner Beyond Redemption are others that cannot be discounted.
