Altior 4/6 to make a winning return
10-year-old returns in the Desert Orchid Chase
Altior is the 4/6 favourite to win Sunday’s Ladbrokes Desert Orchid Chase on return to action in the Grade 2 race at Kempton.
The 10-year-old former Queen Mother Champions Chase winner leads the betting ahead of Put The Kettle On, who is the 2/1 second favourite.
Elsewhere, Duc De Genevres and Rouge Vif are 5/1 third favourites, with Sceau Royal next in the betting at 13/2.
Coral’s David Stevens said: “Although Altior is odds-on favourite in our opening show, the presence of the Arkle winner Put The Kettle On in the Desert Orchid would ensure Nicky Henderson’s charge faced a proper test on his reappearance.”
