Tingle Creek Chase Trends
Fri, Dec 7th, 2012

The Grade 1 2012 Tingle Creek Chase at sandown saw the clash of Sprinter Sacre and Sanctuaire in one of the most anticipated races of the 2012-13 National Hunt season. Sprinter Sacre was a very impressive winner and could become the highest rated steeplecahser in training when the BHA handicapper reviews the race. How did you rate the performance ?  Share your thoughts on the Tingle Creek Chase 2012 thread.
