Nicky Henderson has this morning confirmed on his twitter that Altior is fit to race in tomorrow’s Champion Chase.
The Irish trained horse was reportedly a doubt for the race where it would meet with Douvan in a mouthwatering clash.
Pleased to report that Altior is perfectly sound this morning so it’s all systems go for him in the Champion Chase.
My Tent Or Yours is a non runner in the @unibet Champion Hurdle today on veterinary advice.

This is a clash that has the bookies rubbing their hands as any one of three horses could run out as winner. Min is currently the outsider priced at 3/1, Douvan is second favourite at 11/4 and Altior is the favourite at 11/10.
Whatever happens in the race it is sure to be a thrilling encounter, and will see the bookies gain a pretty penny.
