Simply The Best? Douvan Dots Up

Douvan continues his devastating form to win the Maghull Novices’ Chase and is now 5-4 favourite from 6-4 for next year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase with William Hill.


Long-time King George sponsors, William Hill, also quote Douvan at 6-1 for the Christmas feature (new price).


“Douvan could be the best horse in training and probably has the ability to win over any distance,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
