French-bred raider is fancied
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.
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.
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.
4-7 Un De Sceaux, 5 Brain Power, 10 Kylemore Lough, Top Gamble, 12 San Benedeto, 16 Speredek, 20 Cyrname, God’s Own.
