Jenari will be sorely missed - Harrington

JESSICA Harrington believes Jenari will be "sorely missed" after the gelding was put down.

The six-year-old was a Grade Two winner over hurdles and had won one of his five starts over fences this term before sustaining a broken leg yesterday.

Harrington paid tribute to the JP McManus-owned runner, who won a total of four of his 15 outings.

"It comes with great sadness that I have to report the death of the much-loved Jenari, who sadly had to be put down following breaking a leg on our gallops on Tuesday morning," said Harrington.

"He had many highlights throughout his short career, including stand-out efforts when winning on (his) chase debut at Naas and winning the Grade Two Coolmore Novice Hurdle at Fairyhouse.

"I know for sure that he will be sorely missed around the yard."



Sacre leads 11 for tilt at Chandler

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.
