Day two of the Dublin Racing Festival from Leopardstown highlights an exciting Sunday of racing action across the UK and Ireland.
A total of three meetings take place over the course of the afternoon, beginning across the Irish sea at Leopardstown’s Foxrock track where a bumper eight-race card from 12:45-16:40 is highlighted by four Group One offerings.
They include the Novice Chase at 13:20, the 13:50 Dublin Chase and the Tattersalls Ireland Novice Hurdle at 15:35, but the feature race on the card is the Irish Champion Hurdle at 15:00.
A field of five go to post for the feature, but although the likes of Zanahiyr (5/1) and Saint Roi (12/1) are capable horses, it is almost impossible to look beyond Honeysuckle (1/4) delivering a third Irish Champion Hurdle success for trainer Henry De Bromhead and jockey Rachael Blackmore.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, Betfred will also be providing plenty of promotional offers for the card from Leopardstown, with both the first and last race benefiting from their ‘Super Extra Place’ offer, while the ‘Extra Place’ promotion will be available for the 14:25.
Away from Leopardstown and the high-quality action continues on the other side of the Irish Sea, including at Musselburgh where a seven-race card from 13:00-16:20 is highlighted by the Listed Scottish Triumph Hurdle at 13:32.
Inca Prince (5/2) could be the one to beat in that race for trainer Ruth Jefferson, as he will be chasing a third-straight win and second at Musselburgh, following his success at the venue on New Year’s Day. Nicky Henderson’s Impulsive One (15/8) may prove to be the four-year-old’s main rival.
The final meeting to get under way is the six-race offering from Kempton, which begins at 13:40 and conclude at 16:30, with the finale set to benefit from Betfred’s ‘Free Bet if 2nd’ offer.
It should certainly be a competitive Handicap to end the card at Kempton, with four last-time-out winners set to compete in the form of Dingle (3/1), Dance At Night (7/2), Lammas (5/1) and Sanaadh (7/1).
