faugheen has won two christmas hurdles !
yep, and missed 2016 when Mullins unreasonably refused to send him over while he was injured and then in 2017 WPM had the temerity to run him at Leopardstown's superb 4 day Christmas Festival instead of asking a couple of his staff to sacrifice their Christmas at home to travel over with and look after Faugheen at Kempton just to please i123.
The only reasons I can see for the Irish to send horses to Kempton at Christmas is if the ground is going to be radically different in favour of a particular animal or if they think a race is significantly weaker than the one they would be contesting at home.It's not as if there's a battalion of UK horses travelling to Leopardstown over Christmas (well done Simply Ned though!)
Just the usual guff from i123 - still think it might be a wind up account...
