BEST IN CLASS?: Barry Geraghty rompED home on Sprinter Sacre at Sandown

Nicky Henderson’s Sprinter Sacre began this season where he left off last season when hosing up in the Tingle Creek Chase at Sandown on Saturday under Barry Geraghty

Sprinter Sacre is now close to being rated the same as Moscow Flyer on 179 as he continues to rise through jumps racing’s top rank which would leave him just 7lbs behind Master Minded on 186 in his pomp.

Geraghty even managed to have some banter with Moscow Flyer’s trainer Jessica Harrington on which he won an Arkle Trophy, two Tingle Creeks and two Queen Mother Champion chases.

While Paul Nicholls who is likely to be in a dog-fight for the British trainer’s title with Henderson was also impressed by what he saw.

Not to be outdone Paddy Power punters who took the enhanced 5/2 on the superstar-in-waiting winning by more than six lengths – it was 15 lengths back to Kumbeshwar in the end – were quids in too.
