Victor Chandler To Sponsor The Morebattle Hurdle

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 4, 2010) - Online betting bookmaker Victor Chandler will sponsor the re-arranged Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso on Thursday 18th February.

The Victor Chandler Morebattle Hurdle is the next race planned for the leading Champion Hurdle contender Zaynar, owned by the "Men in our Position" syndicate, which is headed by Victor Chandler.

Victor Chandler, Chairman, commented "I am delighted to sponsor the Morebattle Hurdle at Kelso, which will be the first time the Victor Chandler name has sponsored a race at the course. All being well it will also see the next appearance of Zaynar, who is in fine form at the moment."

Trained by British trainer, N.J Henderson, Zaynar's form is impeccable with a 100% win record and with recent victories at Ascot and Cheltenham at the back end of 2009 will make the French horse a strong favourite for the newly sponsored race.
