There was some competitive fare on offer at yesterday’s well-attended West Waterford Foxhounds point-to-point fixture at Lismore and handler John Queally, who was on the mark with former pointer Gaillimh A Chroi in the listed mares’ bumper at Sandown on Saturday, appears to have a cracking prospect on his hands in Uncle Danny who readily put his rivals to the sword 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.

Adrian Maguire seems to have a rich source of talent at his disposal this season and, following Up The Ante’s facile debut success at the Kildorrery point-to-point on Saturday, the Laharn Cross-based operator sent out Sego Success to oblige in ridiculously-easy fashion at yesterday’s Carbery Hunt meeting at Kilpatrick outside Bandon.

The Gain Mares’ Final as always occupied centre stage at yesterday’s well-attended Ballynoe point-to-point fixture and, on an afternoon that saw pristine ground conditions thanks to the track having been spiked and watered in the week preceding the meeting, the featured event was won by Daryl Deacon’s Co Wexford challenger Miss Palm.

Ground conditions were extremely demanding at yesterday’s Pigeon Hill & Carrigtwohill point-to-point fixture, but Croom-based civil engineer Fergus O’Connor was still the happiest individual at the Clyduff venue as he recorded his fourth career success by guiding his wife Irene Walsh’s Pocket Reader (10/1) to a popular success in the Winners’ Of One.
