NEWS: Altior will miss Kempton
on 07 January 2020
The dual two-mile champion will now not run in the Silviniaco Conti Chase

NICKY Henderson has announced Altior will not take up his entry in the Unibet Silviniaco Conti Chase at Kempton.

The brilliant 10-year-old has not been seen in competitive action since suffering his first defeat in 20 starts over obstacles when runner-up to Cyrname in a much-anticipated clash at Ascot in November.

He missed an intended outing in the Desert Orchid Chase over the festive period due an abscess, but Henderson provided a positive update following a pleasing workout on Saturday morning and the following day confirmed Saturday’s two-and-a-half-mile Grade 2 as his target.

Altior was the headline name among just six entries on Monday and would have been a red-hot favourite to get back on the winning trail.
