The production line of future equine talent that is the Irish point-to-point industry, has certainly ramped up in recent years. Between and October 2017 and May 2018, no fewer than 1,236 races in Britain and Ireland were won by horses that began their careers in the Irish point-to-point fields - an all-time record.
That record figure included 111 black type winners, including the likes of Native River in the blue riband Cheltenham Gold Cup, Faugheen in the Punchestown Champion Stayers Hurdle, and the mighty Samcro’s two Grade 1 successes.
Storm Ophelia and the harsh winter weather may have given its best shot at derailing the 2017/18 point-to-point season, however, the show went on in a campaign stacked with exciting prospects, who will look to become the star names from the class of 2018.
As always, for the purpose of this list, any horse from last season that has already run under rules since their point success have been removed, taking out the likes of Commander Of Fleet, Danny Kirwan and Know The Score. Instead, the focus is on those maiden winners which have yet to appear under rules for their new connections.
