ALTIOR is dominant to win a classic Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival

Racing TV published this video item, entitled “ALTIOR is dominant to win a classic Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at the 2016 Cheltenham Festival” – below is their description.

Quite incredibly this was the last time Altior was not sent off as favourite for a race – and in only one of those was he bigger than even money, before his last ever race.

The son of High Chaparral, trained by Nicky Henderson, was different class this day as he slammed the top-class Min by seven lengths, with the subsequent dual Champion Hurdle winner Buveur D’Air trailing back in third.

Winning jockey Nico De Boinville said afterwards: “I was seriously impressed – all season we’ve been waiting for a proper pace. He’s very good”
