    Energumene
    William Hill Champion Chase, 5.25, Tuesday

    A Shishkin no-show and a fall from Chacun Pour Soi made Energumene's task a whole lost easier in the Champion Chase at Cheltenham.

    That said, the eight-year-old still won with the authority of top-class horse and it would be a serious surprise should he come unstuck at Punchestown.

    Chacun Pour Soi is in the field once again and represents the biggest danger to the favourite but in reality Energumene should, and most likely will, get the job done.
