Awesome Un De Sceaux Bounds To Arkle Glory To Hand Mullins Tuesday Double

Tuesday 10th March 2015

Un De Sceaux was a phenomenal winner of the Arkle Challenge Trophy, as the red-hot 4/6 favourite produced a magical front-running display, which duly handed the sparkling team of Willie Mullins and Ruby Walsh their second winner on the bounce on day one of the Cheltenham Festival and sent backers of the jolly into raptures.

Having just seen Douvan storm to glory in the Supreme it was now Un De Sceaux's chance to try and bash the bookmakers with Arkle glory and the aforementioned Walsh adopted his usual front-running tactics and producing a near faultless round of jumping he careered to a six-length success.

With many rivals producing a host of novicey jumps behind, Un De Sceaux jumped every twig with aplomb and a couple of fences from home he had most of his rivals off the bridle, but 33/1 outsider God's Own was putting in a scintillating effort to try and take him on in the closing stages.

Tom George's raider challenged Un De Sceaux at the second last, but when Walsh got busy on the Co. Carlow hotpot he duly quickened up again and having winged the last fence sprinted up the hill to beat God's Own in style, with Josses Hill completing the placings.
