Racing Post Arkle Challenge Trophy Novices' Chase (Grade 1) preview and selections

Nicky Henderson was toying with the idea of taking on Douvan in tomorrow’s Champion Chase with ALTIOR but has decided to leave that battle for another day in favour of this easier option.

His unbeaten novice is impossible to oppose has he has frightened away a lot of the opposition. The seven-year-old was quick and accurate at his fences when cruising to victory in the Game Spirit at Newbury last month and he’d earlier beaten today’s rival Charbel by six lengths in a Grade 1 at Sandown.

Royal Caviar would probably have beaten Some Plan at Leopardstown in January had he not come down at the last but a more interesting each-way bet is Malcolm Jefferson’s Cloudy Dream, who is a strong traveller and is better off at the weights than when collared close home by Forest Bihan at Doncaster when A Hare Breath was back in third.
