The November meeting at Cheltenham gave us some big clues ahead of the festival in March and for us the stand out clue came in the way of the Champion Chase division.
Although Rouge Vif dropped out of the Shloer Chase on Sunday, it still saw superstar Defi Du Seuil take on Put The Kettle On For Henry De Bromhead.
The soft ground made the race a real stamina test and it was the mare from Ireland that stole the show with, Philip Hobbs dual festival winner being pulled up, giving his second poor performance in a row at jumps racing HQ.
It has seen Put The Kettle On now gone from 16/1 into 7/1 for the Champion Chase at the festival and having ran at Cheltenham three times now, she remains unbeaten.
Duc Des Genievres ran a cracker on debut for Paul Nicholls with a strong second having gone from the front, giving his best run since winning the Arkle back in 2019.
Henry De Bromhead seems to hold a huge hand in this year's Champion Chase market, with that being the best performance so far this season from a horse certain to run in the race.
