TRACK GUIDE


Point-to-Point racing was revived at Liscarroll in 1954, and it has remained a popular venue on the circuit ever since, most commonly associated with Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Denman, who won his maiden as a five-year-old in 2005.

A left-handed course dominated by two long straights, for the 2022 fixture, racing reverted to the old course, the track itself remains unchanged, however both the starting line and finish line will now be on the lower side of the course.

CIARAN FENNESSY

Liscarroll is a good track. It used to be quite a fast track, although the new layout in recent years has made it a bit tougher. You need a horse that travels and jumps.

The fences can be quite tricky as they can be running away from you a small bit, so you need a clever horse. The second-last fence before the home bend is one fence in particular that can be tricky, so you would want to be well on terms by then.
