One of the Gordon Elliott runners in the Grade Two at Navan this weekend is Favori De Champdou.
Sam Ewing will take the ride on the progressive nine-year-old, who was very impressive earlier in the season when winning over three miles by 14 lengths from Sandor Clegane.
He wasn’t at his best when he was last seen, finishing fifth of six in the G1 Neville Hotels Novices’ Chase at Leopardstown over an extended three miles. But, there would be little surprise to see him bounce back to form this weekend. Although, he does carries a penalty on Sunday.
