bet365 Celebration Chase Odds: Jonbon 2/1 to triumph at Sandown

Nicky Henderson's superstar Jonbon is 2/1 to end his season on a high in the bet365 Celebration Chase on Saturday afternoon.

Jonbon heads to Sandown in form following his victory in the Melling Chase at the Grand National Festival, which was a welcome relief for Henderson after he withdrew a number of his stable stars from March's Cheltenham Festival.

Despite missing Cheltenham, victory at the bet365 Jump Finale would complete a solid season for Jonbon after wins in the Shloer Chase and the Tingle Creek before the new year.

Jonbon's form at Sandown is also particularly encouraging, with three Grade 1 wins in three races representing an excellent record at the track.

He won this race 12 months ago and he has proven time and again that he has the necessary speed and stamina for this two-mile trip.

Jonbon vs El Fabiolo

Saturday is set to provide the third instalment of a fascinating rivalry between Jonbon and the Willie Mullins-trained El Fabiolo.

The duo have won one race apiece when meeting previously and after a couple of near misses, a trilogy looks set to be completed at Sandown.

Jonbon defeated El Fabiolo by a neck in the Top Novices' Hurdle at Aintree two years ago, before Mullins got his revenge over Henderson as El Fabiolo clinched the Arkle at last year's Cheltenham Festival.

The pair were set to meet again in the Clarence House Chase but after the meeting was rearranged, El Fabiolo didn't go to Ascot.

After Jonbon missed out on the Champion Chase and El Fabiolo fluffed his lines before being pulled up, the stage is set for a highly-anticipated third clash.
