Match race not to miss!! was created by Dave Scott
Ok its not actually a match race with 3 other runners ( Top Notch, Keepers Hill and Solomon Grey).

Ascot on Saturday will have the clash between the 2 highest rated horses in Britain
ALTIOR (175) vs CYRNAME (176)

The betting will also be tight with pros and cons from both camps.
ALTIOR will be slight fav at around 4/5 ish and I am fairly confident that the champ will strike late to be the victor in this must watch clash.

Good Punting

looking at the ratings i still dont get it. how can any horse have a higher rating than altior. hes unbeaten in how long and they think something else is better than him. they probably have a line horse or some retarded reason .shows their handicappers are just as dumb as ours are.

Racing Post update on clash :

ALTIOR’S phenomenal recent homework that has been characterised by raw speed is proving to be the big talking point in the build up to Saturday's clash with Cyrname in Ascot's Grade 2 Christy 1965 Chase.

The showdown between the two highest-rated chasers in Britain has gripped jumps racing in a way few races come close to outside the big spring festivals, with the main debate over Altior's first race beyond 2m2f off the back of some lightning-fast gallops.

"He did a good piece of work on Friday against two good benchmarks of horses and went a long way clear," Altior's regular partner Nico de Boinville told the Racing Riot podcast.

"He's showing a good turn of foot at home but we all know work doesn't necessarily equate to what goes on at the track."

Trainer Nicky Henderson has already questioned the decision to step the dual Queen Mother Champion Chase winner up to 2m5f at Ascot, saying "the way he works, he doesn't look like he's going to stay" on Tuesday, although De Boinville has always felt he would stay further.

"He seems in really good form and everyone seems to be hyping it up but why not when you've got two nice horses like that," said the rider.

"I thought at the back end of last year that what we're doing [stepping up] is the right decision. He's been working very well and showing a load of speed at home, so we'll see.

"The weekend is just a stepping stone to seeing where we go next in the season. If he gets beat, he gets beat and we revert back but he's in great shape. I'm going out there to ride a nice normal race and keep it very simple."

Connections of big-race rival Cyrname report their bold front-runner to be exactly where they want him for his return to action and the hype surrounding the showdown has certainly reached their yard in Ditcheat.

"I've never in my life talked about a race as much as this and we're not even at the 48-hour stage yet. It's bringing a smile to all of our faces," assistant trainer Harry Derham told Racing Riot, before joining the debate surrounding Altior's stamina.

"What I thought was interesting all week is how Nicky Henderson has said how fast he looks and it doesn't sound like his trainer is stepping up in trip by choice," he added.

"It sounds like his work has been very good. It might just be that he genuinely wants to go for the Tingle Creek and thinks he still has all the speed that he had."

Of Cyrname, officially rated 1lb superior to Altior, Derham added: "He's in fantastic shape and looks very well – big and strong – but the King George is the dream and the aim.

"No one should be confident about beating Altior but would I swap Cyrname? No. We have a lot of belief in the horse and we're excited for the race. I've been team Cyrname all along and am not going to change now."

I might well be a match race?


The opposition to Altior and Cyrname in Saturday's hotly anticipated Christy 1965 Chase appeared to melt away further on Thursday with Keeper Hill joining Top Notch as an unlikely runner.

The past jump jockey legends are all going for Cyrname while the current crop like Richard Johnson says Altior.

Altior undefeated in both disciplines in 19 starts. The distance will be the worrying factor.

Everyone loves a champion so Altior gets my vote.

1605 SAf time with Altior.

Then, when that is over, at 1700 SAf time, the Betfair Chase.

There is a theme in all of Saturday's top races – Paul Nicholls has a big contender. His most high-profile runner of the day is Britain's top-rated chaser Cyrname in the mouthwatering Grade 2 Christy 1965 Chase (2.05) at Ascot, a race which looks a match against the phenomenal Altior.

Seven-year-old Cyrname achieved a staggering rating of 176 when scoring in the Grade 1 Ascot Chase last time and many fancy him to end Altior's 19-race unbeaten run.

The champion is beaten. Nicky Henderson's Altior failed to take his record-breaking unbeaten streak to 20 as he was brushed aside by Cyrname, who recorded a decisive victory in the Grade 2 Christy 1965 Chase at Ascot.

Cyrname, Britain's highest-rated chaser who was ridden by Harry Cobden, went out at an even gallop and jumped all bar one fence perfectly en route to a huge victory over his chief market rival, who never got on terms.

Thor it's the distance that got him. Question is what would the result be over altiors distance. That's my argument about the ratings how can altior with his record be rated inferior. Take tiger roll. Should he not be rated higher than both of these. Nothing can touch him over the national trip so what should his rating be.
