An array of Point-to-Pointers are now available through BIDPOINT and this weekend had numerous BIDPOINT eligible horses produce results worth considering. The Tattersalls Ireland bidding platform offers the following:
7yo Gelding by Chevalier – An Bonnan Bui (Riverhead)
A very progressive sort who won his maiden at Tinahely in mid January by twenty lengths. Moved smoothly up to winners level by scoring at Oldtown on his first effort at this level. Looks to be very much on the upgrade and has the size and scope to go much further. Dam was a five times winner.
6yo Mare by Stowaway – One Song (Bob Back)
Third at Tyrella on Saturday – has been fourth twice, third once and second once from only five Point-to-Point starts. Looks a maiden winner in waiting.
7yo Gelding by Beneficial – Ms Leading Lil (Leading Counsel)
Winner of his debut at Borris in December and finished third in his first attempt at winners level at Tyrella on Saturday.
7yo Mare by Zagreb – Sideways Sonia (Derrylin)
Improving sort who has shown notable progression with each start. On only her third outing she was a close up third at Tyrella last Saturday she is sure to be a winner shortly.
6 yo Gelding by Definite Article – Wilmotts Fancy (Buckley)
Winner on his debut outing at Tyrella last Saturday and looks an exciting sort. Out of a three times winning mare who has already bred two track winners.
6yo Gelding by Gamut – Mageney (Bravefoot)
Third on his debut at Tyrella on Saturday and out of a Point-to-Point winning mare so plenty to look forward to.
6yo Gelding by Tikkanen – Clydeside (General Ironside)
4yo Mare by Yeats – Mondeo Rose (Roselier)
Out of a three times winning mare this mare, finished a very promising fourth in the highly regarded four year old maiden against geldings on her debut at Belharbour.
10yo Mare by Oscar – Meadstown Miss (Flemensfirth)
A very experienced sort who is very often lady ridden and finished fourth at Oldtown in a competitive winners race on Sunday.
5yo Mare by Brian Boru - Nickys Gun (Needle Gun)
Having been a very promising fourth at Ballinaboola on her debut this mare finished a close second at Oldtown yesterday. Looks a surefire maiden winner next time on this evidence.
6yo Gelding by Kalanisi – Screntime (Leading Counsel)
From only four runs this fellow has been placed twice and won once. He was fourth at Tinahely in January to subsequent Hunter Chase winner Hedginator. Went on to win at Oldtown on his next outing. Out of a Point-to-Point winning mare, he ran out a comfortable four lengths winner and continues to improve.
6yo Gelding by Flemensfirth – Beglaccord (Accordion)
Fine type who was fifth and third on his last two starts and continues to go in the right direction. Closely related to Master Of The Chase and Badgerlaw, he looks an ideal type to step up and win his maiden very soon.

A well bred on of Martaline who finished a very promising third at Tallow on his debut.
5yo Gelding by Darsi – Radcliffe Star (Alphabatim)

Half brother to three times winner Lisdonagh House who has shown a lot of promise finishing third on his debut at Tallow. Sure to improve for the run and take a lot of beating next time.
6yo Gelding by Royal Anthem – Two T’Three Weeks (Silver Partriarch)
Stepped up on some promising previous runs to win at Tallow on Sunday. He has enough experience to now make the grade in winners company.
