Ding dong merrily on high!

Comments

It’s the most wonderful time of the year to be a horse racing fan.

While the National Hunt season has yet to hit top gear, we’ll be spoilt for choice in the coming days with plenty of quality action as the leading players come out to play.

There are a stack of Grade 1s on either side of the Irish Sea with big meetings taking place at Kempton, Leopardstown, Limerick and more to keep you entertained all the way through to New Year’s Day.
