Sprinter Sacre 1/2 for winning step up in trip

The reigning Champion Chaser, Sprinter Sacre, is 1-3 favourite with Coral for a winning step up in trip in Friday’s John Smith’s Melling Chase, after six runners were declared for the Aintree Grade One. Flemenstar is the 11-2 second favourite, ahead of the Ryanair Chase winner, Cue Card, at 7-1.

Sprinter Sacre looks unbeatable over two miles, and even though he faces two top class rivals over the longer trip of the Melling Chase, Nicky Henderson’s star will be long odds-on to maintain his winning run,” said Coral’s David Stevens.
