Un De Sceaux is preparing to line up at for the Ryanair Chase a year after finishing second in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham. Of course, the nine-year-old already has a Cheltenham success to his name, having won the Arkle Trophy back in 2015.
One major factor to take into account is Un De Sceaux top form so far this season – he is unbeaten and looks to be in top condition.
The horse is trained by Willie Mullins and the Irishman feels that he is settling as he gets older.
“He won over two-and-a-half miles on heavy ground as a four-year-old,” said Mullins. “He could get three miles now. He is keen, but I think he’s settled a lot better than he used to, I think fences have settled him down and I think his last run showed how well he can settle.
“The horse is settling down as he gets older and I don’t think the trip will be a problem.”
The exuberant Un De Sceaux is making the step up to two miles and five furlongs for the first time over fences at the Festival, and it should make for intriguing viewing.
Taking all of the above into account, it’s no surprise that Un De Sceaux was on the betting slips of plenty of punters as a potential banker in the Ryanair Chase ahead of this year’s Festival.
And it really makes the enhanced odds of 20/1 on Un De Sceaux to win look like very good value indeed.
