Throwback Race For Tuesday - 20/04/21


The Celebration Chase is the feature race of the weekend with the jumps season rounding to close and Altior is looking for his fourth straight victory in the race.

Yesterday we looked back at his win in 2017, but today we are going to look back at his 2018 success and as ever his speed in the finish was the thing to take out of the race.

Taking on Special Tiara for a second time and other smart horses like God's Own and San Benedeto in their primes, Altior in ground he hates still dominated.

Going off as the 2/11 favourite he was expected to win easily, but in a Grade One that is never the case and he did exactly what he needed to do.

We have now shown the 2017 win and 2018 win, tomorrow we will be looking back at his victory in 2019, with the consistency of the gelding astonishing.
