Eight runners will go up against Nicky Henderson’s Sprinter Sacre on Saturday 26th January in the Group 1 Victor Chandler Chase at Cheltenham.
Unbeaten in six starts over fences, Sprinter Sacre found no problems when returning last month to win the Tingle Creek at Sandown, all being well it looks to be a walk in the park for this seven year old on Saturday.
Of the rest it’s Paul Nicholls’s Sanctuaire who could turn this into a race although he made little impact when taking third in the Tingle Creek.
He has since gone on to win the Group 2 Desert Orchid Chase at Kempton at the end of last month. His trainer, Paul Nicholls has produced the winner of this race three times in the last eight years. Twice with Master Minded and once with Twist Magic.
Somersby took the race last year and goes again.
