Point-to point

Dont Ask Now can take the opening four-year-old mares maiden for Mark McNiff at Kinsale this evening.

There could be a decent match in the ladies open between Liam Lennon's Rowdy Rampage and either Conna Castle or Annacarton from the Jimmy Mangan yard.

John Halley can take the five-year-old maiden with An Fear Glic, which was second on his debut, while John Ryan's Rose Of Fairyhill can run well in the mares open.

At the same venue tomorrow, Candide is banker material in the opener and Robert Tyner has strong chances with Up N Under in the winners race and The Halfway Bar in the Open.

Try Try Again could be the one in the opening mares maiden at Ballingarry tomorrow for Mark Quigley, while Mikey O'Connor's Clonbannon Lad could take the five-year-old geldings maiden. James Sheahan has strong claims in the mares maiden with Definite Choice and Patrick Meany's Cadilac Jack could take the last.

Ballingarry is also in session on Monday and Kieran Purcell's Gino Trail may take the four-year-old maiden, while Andy Slattery could take a competitive six-year-old maiden with Italian Legace.
