Land aims to extend winning run
Landofhopeandglory puts his unbeaten record over jumps on the line in the Knight Frank Juvenile Hurdle at Leopardstown on Boxing Day.
Landofhopeandglory goes for another win
The three-year-old has won each of his three starts over obstacles for trainer Joseph O'Brien and owner JP McManus, completing his hat-trick in Grade Three company at Fairyhouse earlier this month..
He steps up to Grade Two level for his latest assignment as he bids to confirm his place at the head of ante-post lists for the Triumph Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival in March.
O'Brien also saddles Lord Justice and Zig Zag, who finished second and third respectively in the Summit Juvenile Hurdle at Doncaster a fortnight ago.
Willie Mullins won last year's renewal with Apple's Jade and is represented by Bapaume, who was just a length behind Landofhopeandglory at Fairyhouse.
The third that day, Gordon Elliott's Mega Fortune, also renews rivalries.
Soir De Chantenay, Amaulino, Champagne Pat, Do No Complain and Prospectus complete the 10-strong field.
