Chacun Pour Soi out of the Champion Chase

Press Release 11th March 2020 Cheltenham

By Racenews

The Willie Mullins-trained Chacun Pour Soi has been dramatically ruled out of today's feature contest, the £400,000 G1 Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.

A foot abscess was discovered this morning, ruling the eight-year-old son of Policy Maker out of the two-mile chasing championship.

Mullins told the Racing Post this morning: "Unfortunately Chacun Pour Soi is out of the Champion Chase.

"He cantered on the course this morning and seemed fine, but afterwards we discovered he had an abscess on a foot and after taking veterinary advice we decided to withdraw him."

The Philip Hobbs-trained Defi Du Seuil is now the 4/11 favourite with sponsor Betway for the five-runner race which is the feature event on day two of The Festival™ presented by Magners.

Betway bet:

4/11 Defi Du Seuil
8/1 Dynamite Dollars
10/1 Politologue
14/1 Sceau Royal
28/1 Bun Doran
