Altior Easy Winner

Altior is unchanged at 6-4 with William Hill for the Arkle Trophy after a facile success at Kempton Park in the Wayward Lad Novices’ Chase.

“Altior has done everything asked of him over fences so far and he is a deserved favourite for the Arkle,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Elsewhere at Leopardstown, Douvan was an easy winner of the 2m1f Grade 1 and is unchanged at 4-7 favourite for the Queen Mother Champion Chase.
