Top class action again today here and in UK
There was no luck for Offaly's Clara Jug Syndicate headed up by Open champion Shane Lowry yesterday at Leopardstown when their three year old Theatre of War (20/1) was touched off by Leagan Gaelge (33/1) in the opening race of the day.
The Christmas Festival action continues today with several top class races at Leopardstown and Limerick.
The Frank Ward Memorial Hurdle at 2pm at the County Dublin track will see the highly rated Bacardys go off the warm favourite for Willie Mullins while in the Savill's Chase at 3.10 Kemboy returns to the track to take on a top class field with the Cheltenham Gold Cup in mind.
In the UK the pick of the action is at Newbury where young superstar Thyme Hill will be fancied to land the Betway Challow Novice Hurdle at 3pm.
