The reopened Victor Chandler Chase at Cheltenham on Saturday has attracted 11 entries, including Sprinter Sacre.

Nicky Henderson's Arkle winner is the headline act in the race which has been transferred from last Saturday's abandoned Ascot card.

However, Cheltenham's meeting is also still in the balance.

Along with Sprinter Sacre there is Sanctuaire, Wishfull Thinking, last year's winner Somersby, Shooters Wood, Kumbeshwar, William's Wishes and Mad Moose.

Kinkeel, Oiseau De Nuit and Esteem, last seen finishing third in a claimer at Wolverhampton, complete the field.

24 hours crucial for Cheltenham card

The next 24 hours remain crucial for Cheltenham in their bid to stage Saturday's Festival Trials Day meeting.
