Steeplechase scene black whiteThe Matchbook Clarence House Chase will take place on Saturday, 19th of January at Ascot. The race will see Willie Mullins’ Un De Sceaux clash with Nicky Henderson’s Altior in what could be one of the most exciting races of 2019. Nine horses will enter the gates for the race, but leading sportsbooks have Altior miles ahead of the competition. Horse racing fans can find the latest race odds at PA horse betting and stay up to date on all of the latest action. While Altior is the favourite going into the race, Un De Sceaux has won the Matchbook Clarence House Chase three years in a row. Will Altior end the day in the winner’s circle or will Un De Sceaux upset the favourite?

Matchbook Clarence House Chase top 5 odds

Altior: 1/3

Altior has won each of his last 16 races. The horse hasn’t tasted defeat since April 2015 at Punchestown. The nine-year-old is the easy favourite for this year’s Matchbook Clarence House Chase as Altior will renew his long rivalry with Un De Sceaux. In early December, Altior defeated Un De Sceaux at Sandown before finishing off the year with another win Kempton.

Un De Sceaux: 5/1

Despite winning the last three Matchbook Clarence House Chase races, Un De Sceaux goes into this year’s event as a distant second in odds. The horse does offer good value to race betters as the Mullins’ trained horse aims for a fourth win at Ascot. Mullins has already stated the horse would prefer a very soft track. The trainer believes the 11-year-old horse would have a better chance of finishing the day as winner with soft conditions.

Waiting Patiently: 5/1

Waiting Patiently’s last race at Ascot ended in a win last February. After a 312-day break, however, the horse finished off 2018 on a sour note unseating his jockey at Kempton. Trainer Ruth Jefferson watched her stable star win his first six starts over fences and hopes are high Waiting Patiently could win once more at Ascot. The horse is entered in the 32Red Casino Chase as a warm-up for the 19th of January event.

Politologue: 8/1

Paul Nicholls’ Politologue finished a disappointing fourth in the King George IV Chase at Kempton in December. It came after two consecutive wins. The Sam Twiston-Davies ridden horse could bounce back with a big victory at this year’s Matchbook Clarence House Chase. His last two races at Ascot have resulted in wins. Politiologue is familiar with the course, but will be racing against some top-notch competition.

Fox Norton: 14/1

Fox Norton has been labelled a “forgotten horse” as he attempts to battle Altior and company for a win at Ascot. The nine-year-old Colin Tizzard trained horse hasn’t won a race since November 2017. That win came at Cheltenham. The two-time Grade 1 winner has been beset by injury over the last year-plus. He is now ready to run and hopes are high in the Tizzard camp that Fox Norton will spring a surprise at Ascot. Prior to Fox Norton’s 2017 injury, the horse registered 11 career wins.
