There were some outstanding performances at yesterday’s well-attended Muskerry Hunt point-to-point fixture at Curraheen and the Declan Queally-trained/ridden Rocky’s Treasure hinted that a bright track career lies in wait by making a stylish winning debut in the five-year-old geldings’ maiden.

The first session of the two-day Kanturk-Duhallow point-to-point fixture at Dromahane took place on Saturday and Sam Curling’s Grand Gold indicated that he’s set for a particularly productive campaign by easily winning the four-mile ladies open in the hands of the Liz Lalor.

It was a red-letter occasion for 20-year-old Johnny Hurley at yesterday’s Avondhu Foxhounds point-to-point fixture at Knockanard for he rode his first winner aboard Jimmy Mangan’s Gabrielleamee in the closing six-year-old and upwards mares’ maiden.

Mesmerising. That’s really the only way that one could justifiably describe the performance of the Michael Winters-trained For Carmel at yesterday’s well-attended Muskerry Foxhounds point-to-point fixture on Jack Murphy’s farm at Aghabullogue as the towering bay hardly broke sweat on his initial career outing in the five-year-old geldings’ maiden.

The Hollinwell is developing into one of the very best point-to-pointers on the circuit and the British-bred recorded his fourth success of the season by destroying the opposition with his owner/trainer Eugene O’Sullivan’s 17-year-old son Eoin in the open lightweight at yesterday’s Duhallow Foxhounds Kildorrery fixture at Rockmills Stud.

On an extremely busy point-to-point weekend, there were nine races at yesterday’s Muskerry Foxhounds meeting at Dromahane and the well-supported Dr Patmassini showed his appreciation for the fast underfoot surface by readily putting his rivals to the sword in the winners of one.

Kinsale-based trainer/breeder Finbarr Tierney seems to have a genuinely nice prospect on his hands in the form of Ardkilly Witness who had little difficulty in gaining a second career success in the winners of one at yesterday’s well-attended Cloyne Harriers point-to-point fixture which took place at Dromahane.
