Track Biography:

The point-to-point track at Ballycrystal is held on the lands of point-to-point handler Matthew Flynn O'Connor in Kiltealy.

The first meeting took place in January 2020 under the auspices of the Ballinagore Hunt Club, the Island Foxhounds have also used this track for their Autumn fixture.

The course itself is a left handed track and the runners will go downhill for a furlong and a half before it levels out. There is a gentle rise to the line.

In all it is a mile around on each circuit with fives fences. Three of the fences are jumped in the home straight, and all of them come before the winning post. There is another fence at top of the course and the fifth fence is in the back straight.

Colin Bowe would look to have a strong hand in this with both IHANDAYA and Painted Wolf bringing the pick of the recent form to this with the former possibly being turned out for the second week in succession after finishing second at Tinahely last Sunday. Sovereign Star was unable to back-up his Ballycahane debut when re-appearing in challenging conditions at Quakerstown over Easter. He could bounce back here whilst Ivegotdapower, Making Headway and Red Hugh should also not be overlooked.

Preview

This auction maiden, restricted to horses that were purchased at the store sales for E25,000 or less, has a very open look to it. THIEF OF THE NIGHT could get the marginal selection having finished a respectable fourth at Lisronagh in the spring, whilst the stable are in good form following a Tinahely double last Sunday. Idylle Sauvage got within ten lengths of Largy Force over Easter and is the obvious danger, with the newcomers deserving of a market inspection in a race of this nature.

DESERT HEATHER has long been knocking on the door and has finished placed in five of her six starts in this sphere including in a number of big-field maidens to ensure she would certainly not be winning out of fortune, and she has changed stables since her last run between the flags. Ballinclay Court ran well in Castletown-Geoghegan and has recent race fitness on her side, whilst Chitchat Sally and Morning Star are others who would not be winning out of turn.

This has a wide-open look to it with the Tom Keating-trained Shantou Moon coming here fresh from what would likely have been a career best at Castletown-Geoghegan recently only to a cropper at the final fence. That may give him the edge over the consistent Old Style Humor who was well beaten at Tinahely last Sunday, however it may be worth taking the chance on JET PATROL. He was sent off as the favourite for a big-field maiden at Lingstown in March and although falling early that market confidence should be notes especially with the stable producing a Tinahely double last Sunday.

COOL CAPTAIN has a very unexposed profile for an older maiden and he ran a fine race in defeat when second at Castletown-Geoghegan on the opening weekend of the season. A subsequent maiden winner has already emerged from in behind him in that race to suggest he is the one to beat. Rockys Howya is rated in the mid-100s over both hurdles and fences under rules and could have his first start for a new stable, whilst Worth Presenting is another that could get involved.
