Un De Sceaux wins Clarence House Chase in bold style
Un De Sceaux bagged another Grade One when running out a clear-cut winner of the rearranged Clarence House Chase at Cheltenham.
After being frozen off at Ascot last weekend, the authorities moved quickly to save the race and its star turn did not let his backers down.
Special Tiara and Royal Regatta put the pace to the race early on, but the latter had soon cried enough and Un De Sceaux moved up to join Special Tiara at halfway.
Approaching the fourth-last Special Tiara held an advantage, but a flying leap by the Willie Mullins-trained 1-2 favourite saw him hit the front under jockey Ruby Walsh and he would not be headed again.
On the run to the second-last, Uxizandre and Top Gamble briefly threatened but Un De Sceaux had loads left, jumping the last two in fine style to power clear for a five-length win from Uxizandre, who ran a huge race in second.
