    Default LEOPARDSTOWN CHRISTMAS HURDLE TRENDS 2014

    The Squared Financial Christmas Hurdle takes place at Leopardstown on Sunday 28th December as part of the supporting card to the Lexus Chase. It was upgraded from grade 2 to grade 1 status last year. The Lismullen & Hatton’s Grace Hurdles have proven the key races in finding the winner of this in recent years.





    Below we take a look at the trends for the past 10 runnings:



    Age (Win-Place-Runners)
    4yo: 0-0-3
    5yo: 2-3-15
    6yo: 2-4-11
    7yo: 3-2-13
    8yo: 2-2-13
    9yo: 1-1-8
    10yo: 0-1-7
    11yo+: 0-1-3
    No very strong trends on the ages of the winners, though horses aged 5 to 7 have held a slight advantage, having won the last 4.
    horses aged 5 to 7: 7-9-39
    All other ages: 3-5-34

    Mares (3-1-10) do well in this, gaining 3 wins & 1 place from 10 runners, 13.7% of total runners.
