It was business as usual at Downroyal today as there annual Boxing Day meeting was held at a later date of today.
With some great races on the card it was brilliant to see trainer Colin McBratney back in the winners enclosure with Sole Witness ridden by Eddie O Connell in the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Hurdle. Colin also had Selection Box in the same race who finished 3rd.
The Irish Thoroughbred Breeders Association Northern Region Hunters Chase was won by the 5/2 favourite Top Twig who has had huge success in the point to points. But the very popular Send for Paddy went onto finish 2nd.
