Un De Sceaux is 7-4 favourite for the 2016 Queen Mother Champion Chase with William Hill after a demolition job by the Willie Mullins-trained star in the Arkle.

“We’ve seen the future and he goes by the name Un De Sceaux – this won’t be the last time he’s well-backed and takes the bookies for a ride,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
