Posted in: Cheltenham Festival News
Douvan was last seen when pulling up injured in last year's Queen Mother Champion Chase but a clue about his wellness was revealed on Tuesday when he was entered for the Red Mills Chase at Gowran.

Douvan was rated as high as 182 in his prime on Timeform ratings - 7 lb higher than the rating Altior currently has - and a potential clash with Nicky Henderson's star, who reappeared in the Game Spirit at Newbury on Saturday, is an exciting thought.
Douvan is around a 4/1 chance for the Champion Chase, tightening up with a few bookmakers following the news of his entry, while Altior is the odds-on favourite.
