Sceau Royal again so gallant in defeat

For the fourth time in as many meetings Sceau Royal had to be content with a rear view of Altior’s backside in Saturday’s Game Spirit Chase at Newbury, but as ever our fellow went down with all guns blazing, prompting Alan to declare afterwards “I was chuffed to bits”.

Alan added:”Yet again Altior has proved that he is the better horse, but I was delighted with Sceau Royal, who has done us proud yet again.

“Provided the ground is good, Sceau Royal will have another crack at Altior in the Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham, and then I would love to run him over two and a half miles at Aintree.” That extra distance over the Mildmay Course might well suit Sceau Royal.
