Cheltenham Festival Horse Racing By Jon Ivan-Duke

Douvan Demolishes Arkle Opposition

Douvan cruised to victory in the Arkle and William Hill quote the Willie Mullins-trained star at 7-4 to win next year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase.

“Douvan is clearly one of the best horses in training and it would be no surprise if he made it a hat-trick of Cheltenham Festival wins at next year’s meeting,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
