Sprinter Sacre: Schooled well ahead of His Cheltenham return
Nicky Henderson organised a big work and schooling morning with stable jockey Barry Geraghty over from Ireland for the Paddy Power meeting.
The trainer's Saturday runners looked in good form in final breezes for their races.
This number included TRIOLO D'ALENE who has been steadily supported at big prices for the Paddy Power.
The former French-based gelding has only a handful of career runs under his belt and looks tight and well tuned for his seasonal reappearance.
SPRINTER SACRE has excelled in his schooling ahead of the Schloer Chase and his legion of fans are expecting a lap of honour on Sunday.
VASCO DU RONCERAY breezed beautifully ahead of Saturday's juvenile hurdle and will be hard to beat in that.
QUANTITATIVEEASING looks forward enough for his Paddy Power mission and this course specialist looked tuned and alert.
CAPTAIN CONAN shows extraordinary speed for a big horse and, after an inch-perfect exhibition on the schooling ground, will carry abundant stable confidence for his chasing debut on Sunday.
