Celebration Chase Guide

1. Altior

Trainer - Nicky Henderson

Jockey - Nico de Boinville

Unbeaten in 18 races over obstacles and the greatest jumps horse currently still in the sport, Altior should win this at a canter and break the record for the amount of successive wins in a row.

Henderson has said he is back to his best after not coming out of the Cheltenham festival to well and rounding of the season in this race is not new for the nine year old who is seeking his third win in this Grade 1.

It will be a huge shock if he is beaten but this is the fastest ground he will have run on all season.

3. Diego Du Charmil

Trainer - Paul Nicholls

Jockey - Harry Cobden

Paul Nicholls second option after pulling out the classy Cyrname but with Diego Du Charmil he will be hoping he can finish nicely in second behind Altior which is something he has already done this season.

He has never got close the Henderson horse all season and looks like very much the same thing will happen but he might be a decent shout of betting without the favourite.

4. God's Own

Trainer - Tom George

Jockey - Paddy Brennan

This 11 year old has seen his best days and is not the force of old, he would need a career best performance just to finish second it seems.

He was pulled up at the festival behind Altior and Sceau Royal and it does not look like he can reverse the form, this might be his last race before retirement and lets just hope the horse gets round.

5. Sceau Royal

Trainer - Alan King

Jockey - Daryl Jacob

Altior's biggest test comes in the way of this Isaac Souede and Simon Munir owned horse off the back of the nail biting finish at the Cheltenham festival in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

Sceau Royal jumped the last ahead of the superstar but just could not finish strong enough up the hill but on a flatter surface might be able to give him another test.

6. Vosnee Romanee

Trainer - Dr Richard Newland

Jockey - Sam Twiston-Davies

Outsider of the field who has ran well this season and does carry some nice form but does not look to be a Group 1 horse and mind find this task a bit stiff.

He has been running in Class 2s and 3s for most of the season and running nicely and since stepping up to Listed company has also dealt well with it but that looks his limit.
