Congratulations to Nicky Henderson for bringing Sprinter Sacre, Simonsig and My Tent Or Yours back from oblivion this season.
After all of his well documented issues, Sprinter Sacre regained his Champion Chase crown as a ten year old, capping an unbeaten campaign with a scintillating success in the Celebration Chase.
The incredibly fragile Simonsig ran the race of his life to finish third in a wonderful renewal of the Punchestown Champion Chase. It was his first start over fences in three years, his first against seasoned chasers, and just his second start since his Arkle win.
My Tent Or Yours made a belated return to the track after two years off with a hat-trick of placed efforts at all three festivals, and the nine year old appears to have retained most of his old ability.
Their combined form figures this season : 111123223.
