Altior won’t go to new House
Nicky Henderson will resist the temptation of running Altior in Saturday's rescheduled Clarence House Chase at Cheltenham.
Altior: Won't run at Cheltenham
The unbeaten novice was in the original entries but was not declared for the Grade One event, which was called off last Saturday due to a frozen track at Ascot.
With the race now added to Cheltenham's card, there is another chance to take on the likes of Un De Sceaux, but Henderson will stick to his original plan and run Altior in the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury next month.
Henderson tweeted: "Altior will not be entered in the Clarence House on Saturday. He's not ready and hasn't been prepared for it. Game Spirit still the plan."
