Vroum Vroum Mag hits top gear in Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown

Wed 28 Dec 2016

Vroum Vroum Mag held off the late thrust of stablemate Clondaw Warrior to win the Squared Financial Christmas Hurdle at Leopardstown.

The 8-15 favourite cruised through the race and looked set to win comfortably, but Ruby Walsh had to get serious in the last 100 yards as Clondaw Warrior, part-owned by the jockey's wife and ridden by his sister, Katie, came with a rare rattle.

Vroum Vroum Mag eventually seized the day by a length and a quarter, with Snow Falcon another two and a half lengths back in third.

But for the final-flight fall of Shaneshill, who had made the running but had been headed by the winner, it could have been a clean sweep for white-hot trainer Willie Mullins.
