Sprinter Sacre: Looks to have Wishfull Thinking to beat in the Schloer Chase

Sprinter Sacre, viewed by many as the horse likely to rule the two-mile fencing division this season, will make his reappearance against six rivals in Sunday's Shloer Chase at Cheltenham.

Nicky Henderson's six-year-old went through his novice season unbeaten and never came off the bridle in winning the Arkle and the Maghull Novices' Chases in the spring.

He also claimed the Game Spirit Chase at Newbury against his elders so he does have experience outside novice company.

Taking him on is the Philip Hobbs-trained Wishfull Thinking, who has never quite rediscovered the form of his novice season.

Paul Nicholls runs the Graham Wylie-owned Doeslessthanme, winner of his last three races last season.

Oliver Brady sends over Imperial Shabra from Ireland, while Evan Williams saddles Lancetto.

Finch Flyer and Kinkeel complete the septet.
