2021 Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown: the runners, the odds, the verdict
The Betfair Tingle Creek Chase (2.25 Saturday) is a much-loved winter highlight won by somestellarnames including Moscow Flyer, Sprinter Sacre, Un De Sceaux and Altior. This year's race promises to be a true corker, with top-class Irish raider Chacun Pour Soi taking on Champion Chase second Nube Negra. Who will come out on top at Sandown?
Useful second-season chaser; won Grade 3 at Naas four weeks ago; this is harder
Trainer:Henry de Bromhead
Thoroughly dominant on Irish soil; below-par third in Champion Chase on sole British start
Below par on reappearance but progressive otherwise; won notable race here in April
Still only five; remains open to further progress; could go well with tongue-tie applied
Shade unlucky in the Champion Chase; gained compensation in the Shloer; improvingseven-year-old
Chacun Pour Soi has excellent claims on his Irish form but he ran below par on his sole British start. Nube Negra is preferred.
