Today we are looking back on last year's renewal of the Grade Two Denman Chase with dual King George winner Clan Des Obeaux a shock second to stablemate Secret Investor.
The 10 year old for Paul Nicholls is a specialist on drying ground and although at the age of 10 is a very unexposed horse, not having many runs during the national hunt season.
Having not been seen since winning this race last year, it was thought the gelding would aim to defend his title but this does not look the case.
The form of last year's race was massively franked by his stablemate with Clan Des Obeaux landing the Grade One Betway Bowl at Aintree and then went over to Ireland to land the Punchestown Gold Cup.
Clan Des Obeaux is the current 10/11 favourite for this year's renewal.
