Verdict

The much anticipated clash with Cyrname hasn't materialised owing to the lively ground conditions underfoot, but racegoers remain in for a treat with the dual Champion Chase winner ALTIOR seeking to notch a record breaking 19th successive victory. Furthermore, he also bids to remain unbeaten over fences and add a third straight Celebration Chase to his ever burgeoning CV (4-4 over fences at Sandown). Realistically, with a safe round of fencing defeat looks to be out of the question unless Sceau Royal can draw a rabbit from the hat and find considerable improvement from Cheltenham.
