The two-time winner of this race in 2018 and 2019 arguably arrives off the back of his most significant victories at the back end of last season.
Clan Des Obeaux ran away with the Betway Bowl at Aintree in April last season, winning by 26 lengths to re-assert himself as Britain’s leading staying chaser after having lost his King George crown last season.
However arguably his best career performance to date came in the Punchestown Gold Cup at the back end of last season, beating a two-time Gold Cup winner, and other multiple graded winning horses back in behind him.
He won by just under 2 lengths and asserted himself once again to be one of the best staying chasers in the game.
He loves Kempton (Winning two times out of four runs there) and especially enjoys this race, winning it twice previously both times in splendid fashion.
He always runs well fresh and will be primed for this race once again.
This race will have been the target all season for Clan Des Obeaux as Cheltenham isn’t his strong suit, and connections will be confident that he can land his third King George.
