'Spectacular' Sprinter to start in the Tingle Creek
NICKY HENDERSON will start Sprinter Sacre off in the Tingle Creek at Sandown and take the "conventional route" to the 2013 Queen Mother Champion Chase, the trainer revealed at his open day for owners on Sunday.
"He may well take the conventional route of Tingle Creek, Victor Chandler, Game Spirit and, all being well, the Champion Chase," said Henderson.
"The way he travels and jumps is testament to his pure class and the only problem is curtailing his enthusiasm in the early part of a race when the opposition simply does not go fast enough for him.
"He's spectacular, but I do find him pretty scary to watch - I hope people find it more enjoyable than I do. Barry [Geraghty] says he's a pure joy to ride and it's the most exciting thing you'll ever get to do."
