All the talk ahead of the 15:30 Queen Mother Champion Chase has been of Un De Sceaux, the odds on favourite. He's certainly a quality horse and based on his form this winter we can see how he will be one of the strongest contenders for this one.
If you've got your heart set on backing him the best place we've found to do it is BoyleSports, at 8/11. If you're not so sure, read on...
Un De Sceaux is undoubtedly a quality horse, but we still have our concerns. He has shown issues with his jumping before, falling twice in seven chases. We're also not so certain about his only win over fences against non-novice racers. Sire De Grugy was running there off the back of an arduous trip at Kempton a few weeks before, while the three other horses running have done nothing to suggest they were franking any kind of form.
On top of all that, Un De Sceaux's odds are so short there's no appeal to us in backing them. So who would we prefer to tip instead?
The favourites stablemate may well be one to keep an eye on. Felix Younger has won six of his last seven races, and looks to have only improved over the last year or so. He's been defeated over hurdles just once since December 2014, and with plenty of evidence that he can win over this distance we think he's well worth picking up here.
The best place to back him is at StanJames, at a very decent 14/1.
If you want an even longer odds punt, Sizing Granite looks like the horse to be on. Switching trainers may benefit him, this being his debut after leaving De Bromhead, and the ground should suit him nicely. He looked smart as a novice, and although his more recent form looks less appealing we think he could surprise the field on Wednesday.
He makes a very tempting each way bet at a price of 33/1 over at BetFred.
