Altior faces only two
Altior will go off as one of the shortest favourites for a Grade 1 in Britain and Ireland in the last 20 years after main rival Un De Sceaux was not declared for tomorrow’s Matchbook Clarence House Chase at Ascot, leaving only Diego Du Charmil and Fox Norton in the line up.
Friday’s Musselburgh's jumps fixture was cancelled due to frozen ground. An inspection was set to be staged at 8am but clerk of the course Harriet Graham made an early call after temperatures plummeted overnight.

Lambourn’s recent successes
Like The Sound (16/1)
2.25 Wincanton | January 17
“He’d have some sort of chance. He’ll like the ground. He’s got a tongue-strap on for the first time too. I don’t think he’ll be winning it but he might be third or fourth.”
8.00 Kempton | January 16
“Cosmogyral ran a good race at Kempton last time when finishing second to a real improver who went out and won again of Brendan Powell’s. She was then beaten a short-head at Wolverhampton and didn’t like the fibresand after that Southwell. She should go well back at Kempton.”
