Five go against Run at HaydockHeadlines
Long Run

Long Run will face five rivals as he aims to make a winning return to action in the Betfair Chase at Haydock on Saturday.

Nicky Henderson's seven-year-old looked set to dominate the staying chase division for years to come after winning the King George VI Chase and the Cheltenham Gold Cup a couple of seasons ago, but last term was not so straightforward.

He had to chase home the resurgent Kauto Star at Haydock and in the King George at Kempton and while he won the Aon Chase at Newbury, he was only third when defending his Cheltenham crown.

His main rival could be the up-and-coming Silviniaco Conti. The Paul Nicholls-trained six-year-old showed smart form as a novice and appeared much improved when sauntering clear in the Charlie Hall Chase on his return.

The Giant Bolster ran a screamer to beat Long Run to the runner-up spot in the Gold Cup and sets out this season to prove that effort was no fluke for the David Bridgwater team.

Weird Al is an interesting contender for the Donald McCain yard. The nine-year-old is seemingly at his best when fresh, as he showed when victorious in last year's Charlie Hall.

Wayward Prince finished second in this season's Charlie Hall on his first start since being trained by his owner Hilary Parrott and now returns to Grade One level. The field is completed by the Colin Tizzard-trained outsider Cannington Brook.

The injured Imperial Commander, Midnight Chase and Tidal Bay were withdrawn at the final declaration stage.
