Chac attacks Eider ChaseHeadlines
Chac Du Cadran

Trainer Chris Bealby believes Chac Du Cadran's bottomless stamina will stand him in good stead in the Betfred Eider Chase at Newcastle on Saturday.

The seven-year-old is favourite for the four-mile-one-furlong marathon on the strength of a convincing eight-length win over Desperate Dex in the North Yorkshire Grand National at Catterick last month.

"Stamina seems to be his strong suit. We stepped him up to three-miles-six at Catterick and he was relentless," said the Lincolnshire handler.

"He kept going, and hopefully another three furlongs at Newcastle won't inconvenience him too much. He's gone up 11lb, it's another grade up and hopefully he's on the way up as well."

A 14-strong field is headed by the David Pipe-trained Master Overseer, who also defeated Desperate Dex at Wincanton on his latest start. Next in the handicap is Irish raider Tarquinius, who was just touched off by Jadanli in the Thyestes Chase at Gowran Park last month.

His trainer Gordon Elliott feels the handicapper has been a bit harsh on the 10-year-old grey, but he is still hoping for a good run.

"He came to us rated 100 over fences and he's rated 136 now. The handicapper must think we have worked a miracle or something, but he's going there with an each-way chance," the County Meath handler told At The Races.

"Had he jumped the third-last better he might have won - he got beat a head. He clouted that fence, but he's an honest little horse and he jumps and he stays. He's very slow, but I wouldn't mind having a few more slow ones like him."
