Defi Du Seuil wins the JLT Novices’ Chase

Defi Du Seuil came out on top in the first race of the day at Cheltenham as the 3/1 favourite grabbed the win from Lostintranslation.

The 9/2 shot led for almost all of the race but thanks to a fantastic jump over the last fence, Defi gained speed and got past just before the post while Mengli Khan (16/1) came in third.
