Savills Chase General Info

The Leopardstown Christmas Chase has had three main sponsors since becoming a three-mile race in 1992. It was run as the Ericsson Chase for 12 years, and then the Lexus Chase between 2004 and 2016. From 2018 onwards, however, it has been called the Savills Chase. British raiders have enjoyed success in the race on more than one occasion this century with Leopardstown providing a credible alternative to the King George VI Chase at Kempton Park for the likes of Best Mate (2003), Denman (2007), What A Friend (2009), Synchronised (2011) and Bobs Worth (2013).

What Happened in 2020?

A Plus Tard made a marked step up in trip and stayed on best to win a cracking renewal of the Savills Chase at Leopardstown. Returned at 15/2 under Darragh O’Keeffe, this was a first win in the race for trainer Henry De Bromhead. The stable was also responsible for the 5/2 favourite Minella Indo who fell at the first fence on the second circuit, while last year’s Savills Chase winner Delta Work (6/1) unseated replacement jockey Sean Flanagan after regular rider Jack Kennedy was stood down following a fall on the previous day at the Christmas Festival.

Willie Mullins, who launched a five-pronged attack on the 2020 Savills Chase scooped most of the major prize money with previous winner Kemboy (9/1) and Melon (25/1) overhauled on the Leopardstown run-in by A Plus Tard. They finished second and third. Fellow Cheveley Park Stud owned horse Allaho (7/1) was some 20 lengths behind the winner in fourth with John Durkan runner-up Tornado Flyer (12/1) next home. Nine of the 14 Savills Chase runners finished the race with three including Grade 1 winning novice chasers Fakir D’Oudairies (12/1) and Samcro (18/1) pulling up.
