Balder Succes currently heads the market with sponsors 888sport at 11/4. The Alan King trained gelding started his season in the Grade 2 Vix Technology Haldon Gold Cup Chase when finishing second to God’s Own (7/2) who has also been declared for the £150,000 Grade 1 contest for trainer Tom George.
Paul Nicholls has two runners in the race; Grade 2 winner Dodging Bullets, who is third favourite with sponsors at 7/1, and last year’s Racing Post Henry VIII Novices Chase winner Hinterland (10/1).
Other notable runners include the Mick Channon trained Somersby (7/1) who was second in the Amlin Chase last time out, Oscar Whisky for Nicky Henderson (15/2), who won last year’s Grade 1 Scilly Isles Novices Chase at Sandown Park and trainer Harry Fry’s impressive Novice Chase winner Vukovar.
Alan King, trainer of Balder Succes, said: “Balder Succes is in good form and we are looking forward to him running in the 888sport Tingle Creek Chase on Saturday. He has come out of his race at Exeter well when finishing second to God’s Own on his seasonal appearance. The current Going at Sandown should suit him and we are hopeful of a good run”
