The Matheson Hurdle is the feature race on the final day of the Christmas Festival at Leopardstown.
The Grade 1 contest is one of the most prestigious races over the smaller obstacles on either side of the Irish Sea as the likes of Istabraq, Brave Inca and Hurricane Fly feature on the illustrious winners list.
State Man led home a 1-2-3 for trainer Willie Mullins in last year’s renewal and the Closutton handler is likely to field a strong squad once again.
