Point-to point

Inchydoney stands alone this weekend with a six-race card for racegoers tomorrow.

Mulligans Man, for Colin Bowe, fell when in contention at Toomebridge last time and could take the opening four-year-old maiden for the in-form Wexford handler.

Eudura O'Connor may provide the solution to the five-year-old maiden with Sharivarry, which was third last time out.

Denis McCarthy's Takemetotheisland has been a model of consistency in recent weeks and has been second on her last three outings and deserves success here.

Padraig Cronin's Flick of A Switch stands out in the mares' maiden, while Gate Please, which ran well at Sligo last time, could take six-year-old maiden for Liam Burke at the expense of Michael Winters' For Sahkey Moony.

The older mares race could go to Brian Hassett's last-fence Necarne faller Mary Fancy.

Number Of The Week

47 The eastern season was completed last weekend with Jamie Codd crowned champion with a record 47 winners in the region, which is 22pc of all the races run in the east this term.

Horse To Follow

Dont Tell Sailor won comfortably by eight lengths last Sunday at Dromahane and looks the sort to have a bright future.

Weekend Selection

Mary Fancy fell at the last at Necarne, but was supported and looked a possible winner. She may have her opportunity here for Brian Hassett.
