EXCITING French recruit Mail De Bievre is set to be supplemented for the Sportingbet Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham next month, trainer Tom George confirmed.

Having shown impressive form in his homeland, the eight-year-old jumped superbly towards the head of affairs on his British debut in the three-mile Betfair Denman Chase at Newbury before weakening into fifth.

Though he holds an entry in the Ryanair Chase, connections are ready to stump up £17,500 to add him to the Champion Chase field.

"I think riding him positively over two miles will be just his cup of tea," said George.
