Will Altior sweep to victory again?

There is no doubting the class of Altior. Particularly at two miles. There was a shock for him in his last outing, however, as his 19-race winning sequence was torn down by the exciting Cyrname, who is at the head of the market for King George VI Chase glory on Boxing Day. That defeat for Altior happened at Ascot over 2m 5f. That was Altiors first outing since his win at Sandown towards the end of April. Looking at the field that he is up against on Friday, it should be a winning return for Nicky Henderson’s chase king.

Can Sceau Royal overturn form against Altior?

Twice Sceau Royal went up against the mighty Altior last season. He didn’t get the better of him, and his form hasn’t quite been on the money. He was out in early December at Sandown where he could only manage sixth at the Tingle Creek and was nowhere near contention and laboured towards the end. Sceau Royal has won this distance, but his last victory was at Cheltenham in November last year.

Willie Mullins’ Duc De Genievres and Henry de Bromhead’s Ordinary World are the Irish contenders in the field. There hasn’t been much to show from the former who has carded a fourth-place finish at Navan and an 8th place at Punchestown since mid-November. He was in form earlier this year with back to back Chase victory. Needs a big step up here, however.

Ordinary World goes to Kempton on the back of a win in September. He can handle himself at a distance and may have claims as an each-way option at 16/1* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 24th, 2019 at 1:05 pm). He isn’t the most fluent of runners, but in his last outing, he showed some pretty good staying strength and speed to claim his victory.

Capeland the one to watch?

Paul Nicholls’ Capeland may be a keen one to watch at Kempton on Friday. After what appeared to be some fading form, he came back with a bank at Ascot at the end of November. Just three weeks earlier he had been disqualified at the Byrne Group Handicap, but then rallied himself to victory, at a much lighter weight, to win his most recent Chase.

He put in an easy finish as well, drawing clear at the last. If he gets a smooth start, then he could find himself getting in the fame from an 8/1 mark*(betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 24th, 2019 at 1:05 pm).
