Big Zeb: Leopardstown remains the plan over Christmas

Sky Bet

The Paddy Power Dial-A-Bet Chase at Leopardstown remains the next objective for Com Murphy's star two-mile chaser Big Zeb.

The 10-year-old looked as good as ever when landing the Fortria Chase at Navan earlier this month.

"We were delighted with his win in Navan and the plan is for him to go straight to Leopardstown at Christmas," said Murphy.

"For his first run of the season the last day you couldn't be happier, so hopefully he can continue that way.

"I'd imagine we'll follow a similar route to last season, but we'll get the race at Christmas out of the way first."
