Altior heads the entries for Sandown on Saturday

Altior is the headline name amongst six entries for the Racing Post Henry VIII Novices' Chase at Sandown on Saturday.

The Nicky Henderson-trained six-year-old is favourite for the Arkle Trophy at the Cheltenham Festival in March and made an effortless first start over fences at Kempton last week.

Nigel Twiston-Davies has entered The New One, who has yet to jump a fence in public - despite being eight years old. He is also engaged in the Harry Dutfield Memorial Novices' Chase at Exeter on Friday.

Kim Bailey is a big fan of Charbel, who won on his chasing bow at Uttoxeter and could now take the plunge in Grade One company.

The hat-trick-seeking Marracudja has made a bright start since thoughts turned to larger obstacles and has been entered by Paul Nicholls.

Max Ward, who won well at Huntingdon after a long absence, is also in the frame for Tom George, as is Zarib from the Dan Skelton operation.
