It’s on! Four runners go to post for this afternoon’s Grade One SBK Clarence House Chase (3.35 Ascot) but for all intents and purposes, it’s a match between Nicky Henderson’s Shishkin, which has been chalked up at 4/6, and Willie Mullins’ Energumene, which is trading at 13/8.

Both unbeaten over fences, they are the two best horses in their class, and while Shishkin just about has the edge on ratings, both of these definitely have more to come and it could easily go either way. On that basis, I’m siding with Energumene, purely down to the prices.
