ITV Racing's Ed Chamberlin On Tomorrow's Racing And His Horses To Follow

We were at Sandown today taking some great racing in and looking to speak to some leading figures in the sport to get some interviews and opinions about the upcoming monstrous weekend of jumps racing.

We managed to speak to ITV Racing presenter and all round nice guy Ed Chamberlin about his verdict on how the Tingle Creek would pan out, how this weekend would impact the Cheltenham festival and his horses to follow over both hurdles and fences for the rest of the season.

The big race this weekend without a shadow of a doubt is the Grade 1 Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown and even with a four runner field, which has been a common theme so far in Grade 1s, it is set to be a real spectacle.

Altior leads the current four runner field as odds on favourite with Sceau Royal, Un De Sceaux and Saint Calvados making up the field. Altior is unbeaten over both hurdles and fences in his career and will be looking to stretch that to 15 races on Saturday when trying to take this Grade 1.

Current joint favourite for the Arkle Trophy at the Cheltenham festival Lalor for trainer Kayley Wollacott will be looking to get her horse to stamp his authority on the novice chasing division when going off as odds on favourite in the Grade 1 Henry VII Novice Chase at Sandown.

Aintree offer a thrilling card with the Grade 3 Becher Chase the highlight of the day with a lot of top horses going up against each other on there seasonal debut. The Grade 2 Many Clouds Chase also takes the eye with just a four runner field featuring the 2017 Grand National winner One For Arthur having his first run after his big injury lay off.

We also spoke to Chamberlin about who his horses to follow are for the season ahead with still many big races over both hurdles and fences still to go.

With that in mind we also quizzed him, as a presenter, on how the viewing figures have differed this year compared to last year with national hunt racing and really is good to see the sport flourishing.

Enjoy our interview with him below.
