Nicky Henderson to run Peace And Co in Contenders Hurdle at Sandown

Peace and Co could reappear at Sandown on Saturday

Peace And Co is the stand-out name among nine entries for the Betfred-sponsored Contenders Hurdle at Sandown on Saturday.

The Nicky Henderson-trained five-year-old will be aiming to put the first defeat of his career behind him, when he ran far too keenly in the International Hurdle at Cheltenham on his seasonal reappearance.

Winner of the Triumph Hurdle last year, he is the shortest price of all the British-trained contenders for the Champion Hurdle at the Festival in March.

Peace And Co was due to run at Haydock against The New One two weeks ago but missed the race at the 11th hour.

Henderson told At The Races: "He goes to Sandown on Saturday, we hope, without a hiccup this time.

"It was very minimal what forced us out of Haydock, I'd have loved to have run there.

"It was going to be bad ground but I'm afraid it's not going to be much better at Sandown.

"He's back moving really well again, he's perfectly OK.

"He must have pulled a muscle in his back - we all do it - and he moved badly for about three or four days."

His main danger appears to be the Willie Mullins-trained Sempre Medici, a comfortable winner of a Grade Three at Naas last month.

Cappielow Park, Exitas, Kayf Blanco, Rayvin Black, Slowfoot, Wilde Blue Yonder and Connetable complete the list.
