The Savills Chase is one of the feature races of Leopardstown’s Christmas meeting, and it’s a race won by some legends of jump racing, including Beef Or Salmon, Best Mate, and Denman.
Run over three miles with seventeen fences jumped, the Grade 1 contest is an important stepping-stone for horses aiming to run in the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
Trainer Gordon Elliott has won the race three of the last four years, with Delta Work, Galvin, and Conflated - Delta Work and Conflated in the Gigginstown colours of owner Michael O’Leary, boss of Ryanair.
