This weekend saw some superb racing that altered the betting markets for some of the key events at the 2020 Cheltenham festival.
The highlight contest of the weekend was the Grade One Clarence House Chase at Ascot where the Philip Hobbs trained Defi Du Seuil stepped it up another notch to land the black type event.
The seven year old dominated the veteran Un De Sceaux being eased down towards the line to land the spoils and it backed up his credentials for how well he has dominated the two miles chase division this season.
Although Hobbs will make his decision closer to the festival as to which race his star will officially go in, it looks an obvious choice that the Champion Chase will be his next destination.
With his Grade One win at the weekend he is now 2/1 favourite to take the contest.
