EP: 172 Sandown, Aintree & Hong Kong
The Tingle Creek Chase is always a wonderful race to watch and this year Greaneteen returns to Sandown to defend his crown from 12 months ago for champion trainer Paul Nicholls. We hear from his handler in a Jockey Club press conference held earlier this week talking about the chances of a repeat victory.
The popular Becher Chase is run over the Grand National fences at Aintree and the Many Clouds Chase is also a feature there on the same afternoon.
