Horse Racing Tips: Watch Paddy Power’s Christmas racing special for all your Festive fancies

There's a hectic racing schedule over Christmas in Ireland and the UK do Ruby Walsh, Fran Berry and Frank Hickey join Paddy Power to separate the good .. from the not so good.

It’s the most wonderful time of year…

By that, of course, we mean all the top-class racing action taking place around Christmas and New Year in Britain and Ireland.

With all the heavy hitters turning foregoing their turkey and ham sandwiches, our big Christmas Racing Preview on the Paddy Power Horse Racing YouTube channel previews the big races across the few days to give you an early steer. But be careful, it was recorded before the final declarations on Saturday Dec 23, so some things may change.

We’re looking at you Gerri Colombe who dodges the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day (St Stephen’s Day if you’re watching in Ireland) and heads for a mouth-watering clash with reigning Cheltenham Gold Cup winner Galopin Des Champs and his two-time Puchestestown conqueror Fastorslow.

So sit back and relax in the company of top tellybox pundits Ruby Walsh and Fran Berry and trading room guru Frank Hickey as they zip through the major Christmas races.

You can also check out our 2015 King George VI Chase Rewind with Ruby and Rich Ricci as they look back on Vautour’s last-gasp deat to Cue Card. Painful!
