Preview: Nicky Henderson's potential stars of Cheltenham

  Preview: Nicky Henderson's potential stars of Cheltenham I’ve taken a look at Nicky Henderson’s potential stars of Cheltenham as the world famous trainer looks to add more prizes, and money, to his already impressive list of honours. I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to see the beast Altior back in action. Altior had an emphatic victory last time out against an extremely good horse in Politologue as Nicky Henderson’s charge raced so sweetly and jumped so impressively to make his rival look mediocre on the Newbury home straight. his eight-year-old will be looking to take prize money back to the seven barrows camp, but Altior will be coming up against some cracking rivals in the Queen Mother Chase. The likes of Douvan, Min, Un De Sceaux & an old friend from a few weeks back,Politologue. A simply mouth watering clash between the biggest names in racing. The sublime Buveur D’Air will once again be in action on the opening day of the festival, defending his crown in the Champion Hurdle, Will it be another easy day for Henderson’s unbeaten seven-year-old? Last time out, at Sandown, was classed a very good win, but there seemed to be panic stations in the final furlong as John Constable was gaining with each stride but Barry Geragthy quickly gathered his thoughts after looking over his shoulder and pushed out for the victory. This quick, slick jumper is surely going to take all the beating, but he is up against some fantastic horses, such as Faugheen, this time around.

Ruby Walsh has been stood down with a suspected broken leg after falling from Al Boum Photo in Wednesday's RSA Chase at Cheltenham . Ruby Walsh was stood down for the rest of day two at the Cheltenham Festival after he suffered a heavy fall during the second race.
