Emphatic Win At Newbury For Land Rover Graduate Altior

Altior was back to winning ways over the weekend with an emphatic victory in the Grade 2 Betfair Exchange Chase at Newbury, a race he won in 2018 and 2017.

The Nicky Henderson trained Champion chaser, who was unbeaten for a world record 19 successive races prior to finishing second to Cyrname over 2m5f at Ascot last time out in November, finished in his trademark style when quickening away to a 3 ¼ length victory. He goes to Cheltenham in pursuit of a fifth consecutive Grade 1 win at the Festival and a third Queen Mother Champion Chase title.

Owned by Patricia Pugh, Altior was bought by Highflyer Bloodstock at the Goffs Land Rover Sale where he was sold by Kilmoney Cottage Stud. 

Congratulations to all connections!
