Henderson Hero 5/1 For Hat-Trick

Sprinter Sacre was magnificent in the Queen Mother Champion Chase and William Hill quote the champ at 5-1 to win the race again in 2017.

Nicky Henderson’s superstar returned to his imperious best and regained the crown that he first won in 2013.

“Sprinter Sacre is the most popular horse in training and for punters who kept the faith he has delivered in style. Usually beating a Mullins/Walsh hotpot would be a winner for the bookies, but we lost out on Henderson’s hero,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
