UN De Sceaux takes his chance in a red hot Ryanair Chase this afternoon on the third day of the Cheltenham Festival.
Paul Townend will be in the saddle and the overnight rain will be welcomed by his supporters on Leeside. The 11-year-old has been working very well according to connections and this brilliant horse has been a marvellous servant to the O’Connell family from Glanmire.
“He’s only run once this season and that was back in early December against Altior in the Tingle Creek at Sandown. It was a cracking effort to run Altior so close and we saw what a great champion he is with his victory in the Champion Chase yesterday.”
