Mullins relies on Sceaux in Celebration


Un De Sceaux will bid to gain revenge on Sprinter Sacre when the pair renew rivalry in Saturday's Bet365 Celebration Chase at Sandown.

Willie Mullins had entered Vautour and Douvan in the Grade 1 but he has decided to rely on Un De Sceaux as he looked to overhaul Paul Nicholls in the trainers' championship.

Un De Sceaux finished second behind Sprinter Sacre in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and the pair are joined in the field by Sire De Grugy, who could only finish eighth in the Cheltenham feature.

Champion Chase winner Dodging Bullets, this year's Grand Annual winner Solar Impulse and Ulck Du Lin have all stood their ground for Nicholls, who holds a slender lead over Mullins in the title race.
