Trainer Gordon Elliott has made 131 entries across the five Irish meetings for the opening two days of next week's busy Christmas period.

Elliott's massive number compares to just 51 entries made over the same period by current champion trainer Willie Mullins but it is Mullins who has the current ante post favourite for two of the three Leopardstown races already priced up.

Impressive Navan winner Footpad heads the entries for Tuesday's Grade One Racing Post Novice Chase for Mullins, while Min is the market leader for the Paddy Rewards Club Chase on Wednesday. The two-mile Grade One contest also features Min's stable companion Un De Sceaux.

Polidam, who won the Foxrock Handicap Chase earlier in the month, is the clear favourite for the Paddy Power Chase on Wednesday in which 48 horses have stood their ground.
