Tingle Creek Runner By Runner Guide

Altior 4/6

Trainer: Nicky Henderson

Jockey: Nico de Boinville

Grade 1s 5 (chase)

Hurdling and Chasing superstar Altior is set to be unleashed for another season under Nicky Henderson and even on his seasonal reappearance he will go off odds on. His record speaks to himself being unbeaten in all 14 races over hurdles and fences and with every new talent or threat he has been up against he has gone on to do his normal job and win the race.

He is one of the greatest chasers around in his division and there was a thought that he would be stepped up in trip this year to compete in races like the King George and the Gold Cup.

This race will tell if he is still the speedy two miler we all know and love and this race will also show if he is still the same horse this season as he was last season and if he is, a defence of the Queen Mother Champion Chase will be the road to go.

Sceau Royal 5/1

Trainer: Alan King

Jockey: Daryl Jacob

Grade 1s: 1

This Alan King trained six year old is very much one of the form horses going into this race with him being unbeaten in his last four chase races and he has beat some serious opposition. He managed to land the Grade 1 Henry VIII Novices Chase last season which really put him on the map, he then won a Grade 2 at Doncaster to round off the season.

This season he made his seasonal debut at Cheltenham in the Grade 2 Shloer Chase where he carried on fro where he left off last season winning a decent race with some ease and firmly put his name in the hat for the Queen Mother Champion Chase in March.

Saturday will be another step up for the Simon Munir and Isaac Souede owned horse and it will truly tell us how much of a competitor he really is in this division.

Un De Sceaux 5/1

Trainer - Willie Mullins

Jockey - Ruby Walsh

Grade 1s - 9

Un De Sceaux is very much a surprise package for this race as only up until this week was he really mentioned to be going into the race, however he is still a classy horse at the age of 10 and although people might think he is not as good a he used to be he has got this season which could be his last, to prove that he is still a Grade 1 winner.

He has won a total of nine Grade 1s in his career and you don't do that if your not special. He is Willie Mullins only runner in the race coming over from Ireland and it is his seasonal reappearance.

For us he is best watched on his first time back but you can never discount a talent like this especially if Ruby Walsh pulls out an astonishing performance on him.

Saint Calvados 6/1

Trainer: Harry Whittington

Jockey: Gavin Sheehan

Grade 1s: 0

The outsider of the four runner field currently seems to be Saint Calvados but in any other race this horse certainly wouldn't be. Coming off the back of a fairly modest campaign last season where he landed the Grade 2 Betway Kingmaker Novices Chase at Warwick and from there went to the Cheltenham festival to compete in the Arkle Trophy.

This did not go to plan as he did way to much early on and burnt himself out the race and allowed Footpad to bolt up and take the Group 1 contest. He reversed this form on this seasons debut when landing the Grade 3 Popular Square Chase and left the Willie Mullins horse for dead beating him comfortably before his fall.

This horse has a great chance at Sandown on Saturday and is definitely one not be discounted even though it is the outsider of the field.
