Track Biography:

The firsts set of National Hunt Committee rules were published in 1889 and Kilkenny Hunt with its long illustrious history of holding point-to-point meets can trace its first meeting back to then. Point-to-point meetings were held under the master ship of Ikey Bell at Lacken, near Bonnettstown in 1909 and from 1914 meetings were at Bishopslough.

Thereafter meetings continued to circulate around the country, 1926 in Ballyfacey, 1927 Rahelty, 1948 Stonecarthy, 1949-1959 Wollengrange, Gowran 1960-1989. From there the point-to-point moved to Brambelstown, Kilbline, Grennan and then to its current location in Damma House.

We hold two meetings during the season, one in November and one in May. Our tracks over the years have seen many winners go on to establish themselves amongst the elite of the racing world, dual Welsh National winner Mountainous and Tranquil Sea to name but a few.

Preview

LA HIGUERA stayed on strongly to claim the third spot at Bartlemy on his debut in form that received a slight boost last weekend. That would leave him with the pick of the previous form as Castle Swan has failed to finish three consecutive starts since finishing a close fourth on debut at Liscarroll. All Star Boy is another that needs to bounce back from a recent non-completion, whilst the many newcomers are worth a market check.

OSCARS BROTHER hit the crossbar in both of his starts last season including when chasing home the well-related Glens Sensation at Ballindenisk in May. He could be the one to side with following the summer break if handling the likely softer ground. Moon Over Mexico has a more recent second-placed finish to his name as he ran just last Saturday in Moira and has to be a danger alongside River Agent and Western Wishes.

Preview

Ixigreszed only went down by the narrowest possible margin at Tinahely last month on what was her first completed start, and she could well go one place better here at the expense of Jollie Cosmos who drops back from winners company. Peggys Cross must overcome a lengthy absence, but she did finish in front of subsequent bumper winner when second at Dromahane on her penultimate start so does have ability.

The well-related WALLACE OLINGER had to be asked a more serious question at Loughanmore in what was not the strongest of winners races following a facile wide-margin maiden success before that, but he is two from two and has to be respected in a competitive heat. La Vega Moon also goes in search of a hat-trick having made a winning stable debut at Loughrea, whilst maiden winners Double Digits, Redzy Rocco and Intrepide Sivola all must be respected.

ITS ON THE LINE was the champion hunter chaser on this side of the Irish Sea last season, winning at the Punchestown festival and finishing second at Cheltenham before that, and is the standout on form as he bids to start his new campaign off on a winner. He likely will not have things his own way as Champagne Platinum is a 134-rated chaser who has run in the last two Irish Nationals, whilst Dinny Lacey and Diese Des Bieffes are others not without their chances.

Preview

Declan Queally has started the season strongly and many eyes will be on his two potential runners in this BEAUS CANDLE and Dont Matter Now who is a new addition to his stable. The latter was placed in two maiden hurdles for Noel Kelly but has not run in over two years which may give his new stablemate BEAUS CANDLE the edge. Of the others, Casey West was placed three times between bumpers and maiden hurdles for Colin Bowe and cannot be discounted.
