Defi Du Seuil keeps going from strength to strength, following his hugely promising novice campaign with two victories in open company this term. The upwardly mobile five-time Grade One winner returns to the track on Saturday as he bids to confirm his place as favourite for the Champion Chase.

Here at myracing, we’re expecting the seven-year-old to take the world of beating in the Clarence House at Ascot, live on ITV Racing. Available at a shade of odds-on with most bookmakers, betway have boosted his price to a massive 50/1!

A mammoth price for a horse who has won thirteen of his nineteen career starts, has beaten some of the best two-milers twice already this year and remains open to even more improvement? We certainly think so!

How Can I Claim the 50/1 Offer?

All new customers have to do is sign up with betway here. Then, place a beat on Defi Du Seuil at the regular odds displayed on site.

Betway will then aim to top up your winnings to 50/1 within an hour of bets settling, but it may take up to 24 hours.

New customers must stake at least £/€1 on Defi Du Seuil. Only £/€1 of the stake will enhance to 50/1, with the rest of the bet settled at the starting price.

Will He Win?

We’re certainly keen on his chances. He was unbeaten in his first seven as a juvenile hurdler, culminating in Grade One success at both Cheltenham and Aintree.

The following season was a little tougher but he benefitted from a switch to chasing last winter. He accounted for subsequent RSA winner Topofthegame on his second chase start before going toe-to-toe with Gold Cup hopeful Lostintranslation three times.

Second in the Dipper on New Year’s Day, he made amends for that with two victories at the highest level. He landed the Scilly Isles at Sandown before doubling up in the JLT. The gelding then lost nothing in defeat when chasing home Chacun Pour Soi in May at the end of a hard campaign.

Defi returned to action in inspired form, justifying favouritism in the Shloer Chase at Cheltenham, accounting for Politologue. He again had that rival behind him when doubling up in the Tingle Creek at Sandown last month.

Sent off the 2/1 favourite, he came through to lead at the last fence with a sweeping run. He was a couple of lengths clear before just idling late on, with the veteran Un De Sceaux getting to within a neck of him.

Given the rapid rate of improvement Defi Du Seuil is showing as he heads towards Cheltenham, there’s little reason to believe the re-opposing Un De Sceaux is capable of reversing the form.

Whilst a hugely admirable performer who has won three renewals of this race, he has proven vulnerable to rivals out of the top drawer in the twilight in his career. Where Altior beat him in the Tingle Creek last year, this season’s pre-eminent two-miler was too good for him in 2019. A similar fate should await the twelve-year-old at Ascot on Saturday.

Defi Du Seuil also accounted for Janika in the Tingle Creek. That rival should struggle to get near him once more, and the two lowest rated contenders, Capeland and Marracudja, are handicappers at best.
