Un De Sceaux to face nine rivals


Un De Sceaux heads the ten horses declared for Wednesday's Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham.

Willie Mullins' charge was an impressive winner of the Arkle Trophy at last year's Cheltenham Festival and is the hot favourite for the Queen Mother after winning two of his three starts this season.

He will not have it all his own way, however, as three former winners of the Champion Chase are set to line-up in this year's renewal.

Sprinter Sacre, Sire De Grugy and Dodging Bullets will all look to win the race for a second-time, while Mullins has also declared Felix Yonger.

Last year's third Special Tiara takes his chance for Henry De Bromhead with Sizing Granite standing his ground for Colm Murphy.

Somersby finished second 12 months ago for Mick Channon and he is been given the green light to take his chance again as God's Own and Just Cameron complete the line-up.
