Un De Sceaux is the clear odds-on favourite to make it a hat-trick of wins in the Clarence House Chase on Saturday.

Willie Mullins’ star is 4/7 to land the Grade 1 contest, ahead of Brain Power for the in-form Nicky Henderson at 5/1.

Kylemore Lough and Top Gamble come next at 10/1 before San Benedeto at 12/1 and Speredek, who is 16/1.

Meanwhile, Altior remains the favourite for the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham in March.

The eight-year-old has yet to feature this season but is 11/8 to provide a fourth victory in seven years for the Henderson yard.

Politologue is next at 7/2 ahead of Min at 5/1.

Yorkhill and Douvan can be backed at 6/1 apiece.

“With all the leading Queen Mother Champion Chase hopes missing Ascot this weekend, Un De Sceaux appears to have the hat-trick of Clarence House wins at his mercy, with his leading market rival Brain Power still a novice over fences,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
