Sprinter King Again

Sprinter Sacre is 7-2 from 5-1 with William Hill for next year’s Queen Mother Champion Chase after once again beating Un De Sceaux.


Nicky Henderson’s superstar chaser won the Celebration Chase at Sandown. Un De Sceaux has been pushed out to 8-1 from 5-1, while stablemate Douvan remains the Even-Money market leader.


“Sprinter Sacre is one of the most popular horses in training and it would be no surprise to see punters splashing the cash on him to win another Queen Mother Champion Chase,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.
