Forecasts

Altior (30/100), Special Tiara (4/1), Vaniteux (12/1), San Benedeto (20/1)

Verdict

It's been a thrill to watch ALTIOR this season as he's progressed, and at times his jumping, for a novice, has been breathtaking. He wasn't at his best when winning the Arkle but win it he did, and in the battle for the trainer's championship, can strike a blow for Nicky Henderson. Special Tiara caused a minor surprise when taking the Champion Chase but he's danced all the big dances and deserved a big one. He can prove the main challenge. Neither of the other pair are taken lightly either, and may not be as far away the odds suggest.
  1. Altior
  2. Special Tiara
  3. San Benedeto
