Point-to point

the opening four-year-old maiden can go to Andy Slattery's Castletown Bridge at Kilmallock tomorrow.

Paul Gilligan can take the five-year-old maiden with Arctic Trail, while Embracing Change deserves a chance in the winners' race for Tom Lombard.

Rudi Trucker looks banker material in the Open for Jimmy Mangan, and Edmond Kent's twice runner-up Royal Robin can win the mares' maiden. Slattery could also take the last race with Charles Fort.

Tom Keating has been having a good season and Smart Money can continue his run of decent maiden winners this season at Dromahane.

John Costello's Nenagh runner-up Final Gift can score in the five-year-old maiden, and Mouse Morris' Carry Each Other may be one to watch in the winners' race, having won his only start at Templemore.

Liam Burke can get among the winners in the older geldings' maiden with Spread The News, while Paurick O'Connor's Tushana can run well in the concluding mares' maiden.

Inch on Wednesday will also be a notable card, having in recent years produced both Silver Birch and Finians Rainbow.

Number Of The Week

17 Beginning yesterday, we are in a period of intense point-to-pointing, with 17 meetings in the space of 17 days.

Horse To Follow

Bigasabishop is a fine big stamp of a chaser who won at Borris last Sunday for Aidan Fitzgerald and will be one to note in chases in years to come.

Weekend Selection

Arctic Trail was a decent second for Paul Gilligan at Rath-morrissey last time and may go one better at Killmallock.
