The National Hunt season has begun in mouth-watering fashion in 2019 with so many of the games superstars putting their best foot forward again on seasonal debut. The November meeting at Cheltenham was reduced to two days due to adverse weather but proved to be very informative indeed. On the Saturday Kerry Lee’s mare Happy Diva was an impressive winner of the Bet Victor Gold Cup. That performance was eclipsed however on the Sunday when the supremely talented Defi Du Seuil lowered the colours of Politologue to win the Grade Two Schloer Chase. The win sent him rocketing to the front of the market for the Grade One Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown Park on Saturday 7th December.
The Tingle Creek is one of the highlights of the season and no race in our sport has a more illustrious role of honour. All-time greats such as Desert Orchid, Flagship Uberalles, Moscow Flyer, Kauto Star, Master Minded, Sprinter Sacre and Altior have all tasted victory in this iconic race.
This year’s renewal sees two previous winners Un De Sceaux and Politologue take their chance against some bright new stars. It will undoubtedly be a race to savour and will wet the appetite for another outstanding festive season of Racing.
The two day Tingle Creek meeting also showcases some of the stars of the future in the Henry VIII Novices Chase as well as offering a platform for our favourite stayers in the London National. There really is something for everyone so if you love National Hunt Racing then you’ll have a fantastic time at Sandown Park, one of the U.K’s finest racecourses.
