Mon 5 Feb 2018

Queen Mother Champion Chase ante-post favourite Altior is in line to make his eagerly awaited reappearance in the Betfair Exchange Chase at Newbury on Saturday, as long as the ground is suitable.

Trainer Nicky Henderson reports last season's Arkle Trophy winner, who has had wind surgery, ready to return to the fray in the two-mile Grade Two, registered as the Game Spirit Chase.

The eight-year-old has been out of action since late last April, when he took his 100 per cent record over fences to six in the Celebration Chase at Sandown.

Henderson tweeted: "Altior has been given an entry for @NewburyRacing on Saturday and the intention is very much to run. His work has been good and we're very happy. We'll keep an eye on the weather but if it stays Good to Soft/Soft, he'll be declared."
