Point To Point Evening - Thursday May 4th
Join us to kickstart your summer for an enjoyable evening of good quality National Hunt action. This card features two Point to Point Irish National Hunt Flat Races and a Hunters Chase, giving a great opportunity for Point To Point trainers to get their horses to the racecourse.
The Beginners Chase on the card last year, run over 2 miles and 7 furlongs was won in impressive fashion by the Robert Murphy trained Darrens Hope who went on to win the Grade 2 Liam & Valerie Brennan Novice Chase at Punchestown in November.
Our last race on the card in 2022 the P2P.ie Point To Point Irish National Hunt Flat race featured Corbetts Cross, one of the most improved horses in training for the 2022/23 National Hunt season. Corbetts Cross finished 5th in this race last year for Eugene O’Sullivan before going on to win his maiden hurdle in Limerick at Christmas and going on to win emphatically on his handicap debut at Fairyhouse in January off a rating of 130.
Also on the card there is a Mares Maiden Hurdle over 2 miles which was won in 2021 by Gypsy Island and then to complete the card we have a 3 mile Handicap Hurdle and a Handicap Chase run over 2 miles and 1 furlong.
