VIDEO: Defi Du Seuil too good for Un De Sceaux in Clarence House
on 18 January 2020
Defi Du Seuil confirmed the Tingle Creek placings with Un De Sceaux, this time winning by two and three-quarter lengths

DEFI Du Seuil showed his superiority at the business end of proceedings to reinforce his Cheltenham Festival claims in the Grade 1 Matchbook Clarence House Chase at Ascot.

Philip Hobbs’ stable star had narrowly beaten Un De Sceaux in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown last month, and he confirmed the form in emphatic fashion.

Ranging alongside the gallant Un De Sceaux at the second-last fence with the rematch on in earnest, Defi Du Seuil (11/10 joint-favourite) jumped into the lead under Barry Geraghty.

And he pulled away from his market rival between the final two obstacles to score by two and three-quarter lengths.

Un De Sceaux – a three-time winner of the Grade 1 showpiece – stuck to his guns to be second, with Marracudja third.
