The King George VI Chase at Kempton Park is the showpiece event of the Christmas period which potentially looks as though it could be a mouth-watering three-way showdown between two of the biggest trainers in the game; Colin Tizzard vs Paul Nicholls, Cyrname (2/1) vs Lostintranslation (5/2) vs Clan Des Obeaux (4/1). What a race we have in store!
If Lostintranslation does win then the elusive Triple Crown will be one race away for Colin Tizzard’s charge, something not achieved since the legendary Kauto Star in 2006-07, he couldn’t, could he?
If that wasn’t enough to whet your appetite the first day of the famous Leopardstown Christmas Festival begins where you have the likes of Klassical Dream, Benie Des Dieux, Bacardys, Apple’s Jade, Faugheen, Samcro and Battleoverdoyen set to run.
The Premier League action begins at 12:30 with Brighton travelling to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham, which kicks off a festive day of non-stop football.
Seven further Premier League games along with a full Championship, League One and Two fixture list then follow to serve up merely as an appetiser to the game of the day like a second Christmas dinner at 8pm. The King Power Stadium, Leicester vs Liverpool, the two form teams of the season going head-to-head. Will Brendan Rodgers come back to haunt his former club? It’s a game that could end up bringing Jurgen Klopp’s men closer to the chasing pack or leave the rest of the league hoping for a Christmas miracle to catch the Reds. Is there a better way to wrap-up a day of non-stop sport at the most wonderful time of the year? Probably not.
