Altior’s proud run ends
– Altior’s proud winning sequence over jumps finally came to an end on Saturday as Cyrname got the better of him in the Christy 1965 Chase at Ascot.
Nicky Henderson’s horse had won all 19 of his races over obstacles heading into the clash.
However, he was taking a step into the unknown going up in trip to 4200m and taking on a horse who had won his last two races over the course and distance in tremendous style.
Cyrname won by 2.25 lengths. – Sportinglife.com
