Racing: Challenger backs down

Click to follow
Challenger Du Luc will duck a confrontation with One Man in the Pillar Chase at Cheltenham tomorrow and will instead tackle the Ladbroke Trophy on the same card. The sponsor makes Challenger Du Luc a 9-4 chance. Addington Boy heads the market at 6-4.

Plans for Avro Anson, the favourite for the weekend's other main betting race, the Great Yorkshire Chase, are still uncertain. Maurice Camacho, his trainer, will wait until today's deadline before deciding whether the gelding will run.
