The big race of the weekend is the Grade One Clarence House Chase at Ascot and even with a small field there is a star studded line up and Defi Du Seuil looks the one to beat.
Philip Hobbs' superstar is back seeking another Grade One victory to add to his illustrious career already and he has a huge chance in what will be one of the toughest races of his season.
This term he has raced twice and is still unbeaten after scoring on his seasonal debut in the Grade Two Shloer Chase and then he backed that up by landing the third Grade One of his career in the Tingle Creek at Sandown.
He is set to renew his rivalry with the superb veteran Un De Sceaux who he narrowly beat at Sandown before the turn of the year and the thought of them two been locked in a battle up the run in is what we all love racing for.
However, we feel that the younger Defi Du Seuil has more scope and has a larger will to win than the 12 year old and it should be a perfect stepping stone before the Champion Chase at the Cheltenham festival.
