A Henry De Bromhead trained horse claimed the Savills Steeplechase on day three of the Leopardstown Christmas Festival but it wasn't Manilla Indo as expected. 

15/2 shot A Plus Tard was ridden to victory on Monday afternoon in the big race of the day by Darragh O'Keefe, in his first-ever Grade One win.

The Willie Mullins trained Kemboy and Melon were second and third.

The favourite, Manilla Indo and jockey Rachael Blackmore didn't finish after falling in the second circuit; as did Gordon Elliott's Delta Work.

Blackmore then withdrew from the rest of the day's races but is expected back on Tuesday.

There was a surprise too in the Leopardstown Christmas Hurdle which the Gavin Cromwell trained Flooring Porter won after going off a starting price of 11-to-1.

The five-year-old was ridden to victory by Jonathan Moore, which was also his first-ever Grade One win.

There was racing too at Limerick on Monday after Sunday's card had to be abandoned due to a water-logged track.

The feature race of the day there, the Tim Duggan Memorial Handicap Steeplechase, was won by the Philip Dempsey trained, JP McManus owned The Long Mile with Niall Madden on board.
