Cheltenham Festival By Jon Ivan-Duke

Un De Sceaux 8-1 to Go Unbeaten This Season

Un De Sceaux will make his chase debut at Thurles tomorrow for Willie Mullins and William Hill have priced up a special market for his first start over fences.


William Hill offer 8-1 that Un De Sceaux remains unbeaten this season. The Edward O’Connell owned horse has never lost in nine starts under rules, including two bumpers and seven hurdles.


“Un De Sceaux has strong form over hurdles and if that translates to fences then he could be a chasing powerhouse,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke. “He’s already one of the best-backed horses to win at the Cheltenham Festival.”
