Tom in for Nick and joined by senior writer at the Racing Post Lee Mottershead. Lee and Tom first look ahead to today’s Matheson Hurdle at Leopardstown and ask just how good State man is, or at least needs to be to win today and whether he could be a threat to Constitution Hill in the Champion Hurdle. We look back at yesterday’s action and hear from Conflated’s rider Jack Kennedy after his Savills Chase win and from Home By The Lee’s trainer Joseph O’Brien after his Christmas Hurdle success. Jospeh also tells us about High Definition’s likely next run. It’s a busy weekend of racing in the UK and Lee looks ahead to that, whilst we hear from trainer Olly Murphy who will be represented by five runners at Cheltenham including Thunder Rock in the Dipper and Brewin’upastorm in the Relkeel. Plus it’s Thursday so we have the latest from Saudi Arabia with Martin Kelly.
