Defi du Seuil delivers in style in Triumph Trial at Cheltenham
Dino Velvet finished second.
Defi du Seuil staked an early claim for Festival honours with an impressive performance to take the JCB Triumph Trial Juvenile Hurdle at Cheltenham.
The Philip Hobbs-trained three-year-old followed up his debut success over jumps at Ffos Los in some style under Barry Geraghty.
East Indies and Red Hot Chilly made most of the running to three out, where Defi Du Seuil and Dino Velvet cruised up to take closer order. The latter came down at the final flight when holding every chance and that left Defi Du Seuil to win snugly by a length and three-quarters from Diable De Sivola.
Lambeau Field was 58 lengths away in third place.
