Defi Du Seuil and Un De Sceaux are set to reprise their recent Tingle Creek Chase contest as they feature among five runners declared for the Matchbook Clarence House Chase at Ascot on Saturday.

The Philip Hobbs-trained Defi Du Seuil landed the spoils at Sandown by a neck, but faces a three-time winner of the Ascot contest.

With no Altior this time around, Nicky Henderson runs Haldon Gold Cup winner Janika, who finished fourth in the Tingle Creek.

Paul Nicholls , who has won this race five times in the past, runs Capeland, while Dan Skelton fields Marracudja.
