Champion Chaser – Editeur Du Gite cut, Energumene on the drift

The re-scheduled running of the Clarence House produced an absolute thriller on Saturday, having been moved a week later from Ascot to Cheltenham.

It didn’t follow the script as many predicted however, with Queen Mother Champion Chase Favourite Energumene struggling and ultimately only managing third and nowhere near the first two.

Energumene struggled in Saturday’s Clarence House Chase

It was Gary Moore’s front-runner Editeur Du Gite who took the spoils battling out an enthralling finish with the fast-finishing Edwardstone in one of the races of the season. The race really shook up the betting markets for the Wednesday feature race and what once looked Energumene’s to lose is a wide-open contest.
