Those looking to take on Douvan , trained by Willie Mullins, with an outsider might like to consider the fact that there's only been six Champion Chase winners priced in double figures since the race was established way back in 1959.

Having said that, odds-on horses have occasionally fluffed their lines in recent years. Un De Sceaux finished second last year at 4/6, Sizing Europe was also second at 4/5 in 2012, Master Minded could only manage fourth at 4/5 in 2010, while Moscow Flyer unseated Barry Geraghty priced at 5/6 back in 2004. The last favourite to win was Sire de Grugy in 2014 at 11/4.
