The Grade 1 Matheson Hurdle is one of the highlights of the Christmas Festival at Leopardstown.

Willie Mullins’ reliable campaigner Sharjah has landed the last four renewals and is bidding to become the most successful horse in the history of the race, which has been won by the likes of Istabraq, Moscow Flyer and Hurricane Fly over the years.

The 2m contest could see a changing of the guard, however, with Mullins set to unleash last season’s County Hurdle winner State Man and Triumph Hurdle hero Vauban, and Gordon Elliott pitching Pied Piper into the mix.

You can run the rule over our Matheson Hurdle odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

State Man is the favourite with Paddy Power to land the Matheson Hurdle and take his winning streak to five successive races. The County Hurdle hero comfortably scored in last month’s Morgiana Hurdle to continue his rapid progress.

Sharjah is also prominent in the betting as Willie Mullins’ experienced hurdler bids for a record-breaking fifth victory in this race.
