THE cold snap may have left a blank day in Britain, with Fontwell and Hereford both frozen off, but there is still a quality card in Ireland at Leopardstown for fans to savour.
Last season's Neptune winner Yorkhill makes his second chase start in the Grade 3 "Money Back On Fallers" At Coral.ie Novice Chase, and is odds-on to remain unbeaten over fences for Willie Mullins.
There is also a pair of valuable handicaps, crammed with runners, for punters to unravel, with Gordon Elliott responsible for seven of the 19 runners in the Grade A Coral.ie Leopardstown Handicap Chase.
Elliott has made a good habit of taking out valuable prizes as he bids to remain atop the Irish trainers' championship.
