On The Sod

On The Sod has won all three of his point to point efforts so far. So he was coming along nicely. It is of course hard to gauge on a first trip over the fences, but from what he has shown so far, the eight-year-old is likely to be in contention. He lines up as the 2/1 favourite* (betting odds taken from Boylesports at 20:31 GMT on Saturday, 21st March 2020).

Complete Sizing


Complete Sizing

A four-time point to point winner who has gone off under rules a couple of times. Came up lame on a chase debut at Down Royal in May last year. Complete Sizing has made one appearance since then and was a faller at Clonmell in January. He has a hot jockey in the saddle in Jamie Codd and has been sharpened up in a point to point recently and isn’t a bad pick at 7/4* (betting odds taken from Boylesports at 20:31 GMT on Saturday, 21st March 2020).


This maiden chaser actually has some descent from behind. He didn’t get going on his last trip at all, which was at Market Rasen. Prior to that he had taken place finishes in each of his five previous races (three hurdles, two chases). Comfortable over the distance and should have big claims for this one as he comes back under rules after a recent point to point effort. Goes from a 4/1 mark* (betting odds taken from Boylesports at 20:31 GMT on Saturday, 21st March 2020).

Handy Headon

Was a faller at Punchestown in May last year, the only previous trip under rules that he has had. The eight-year-old has put some decent stuff together in point to point action since then. It will be interesting to see how he goes as he comes back into the discipline.

Holycross Lito

An excellent point to point performer with some steady performances in hurdle action. The last time under rules she pulled up in a Clonmel effort. There has not been the ability to turn that point to point form of 5-7 in quality performances under rules. But nonetheless could be a place contender at the 9/1 mark* (betting odds taken from Boylesports at 20:31 GMT on Saturday, 21st March 2020).

Worthy Mentions

LONGHOUSE MUSIC should have the potential to get in the frame. The eleven-year-old was last out on a 3m trip at Cork under rules and took a fifth-place finish. She has yet to score in eight trips over the fences, however, has a spectacular point to point form.

After a fall at Clonmel over the regulation fences in January in what was a debut under rules, KILGORE did pick up a bit in a recent point to point to claim third. He looks like he has a lot to find, but he just never had a chance at Clonmel to show after being hampered badly.

Predictions & Tips

COMPLETE SIZING gets the nod as the pick from us for this hunters action. He comes back for a second crack at the regulation fences and looks as if he could shape up well.

There is a great deal of promise in favourite ON THE SOD as he takes on his debut under rules. If he translates what he has done in the point to point efforts, he can get in the mix.

Of the chasing pack, the most likely to take a crack at the place claims as well is HEYDOUR who did make a winning start for his new connections. The seven-year-old has a chance.
