Sacre in 'very, very good shape'

Nicky Henderson has issued an upbeat bulletin on Sprinter Sacre ahead of the Queen Mother Champion Chase on March 16.

The ten-year-old has won both the Shloer Chase and the Desert Orchid Chase this season and connections will be hoping he can extend his winning run when he lines-up in the two-mile championship on the second day of the Cheltenham Festival.

He had been expected to work at Kempton on Tuesday but he remained at Henderson's Seven Barrows yard with the trainer happy to let him complete his preparations on his Lambourn gallops.

"Sprinter didn't need to come to Kempton today as he is in great form. He really is in very, very good shape. He looks great and feels great. His work has been excellent. He just doesn't need to do any more," Henderson reported.

"He will work again this weekend. He will have one more bit of proper work at home and that will be him done. He will probably just have a school as well."
