Simonsig in Newbury entry

Simonsig features among 11 entries for Saturday's Betfair Super Saturday Chase at Newbury.

Trainer Nicky Henderson won the race, better known as the Game Spirit Chase, with novice Sprinter Sacre last year and he could try to repeat the trick with the seven-year-old grey.

The Seven Barrows handler also has French Opera and Tanks For That as back-up to his Arkle favourite.

Philip Hobbs' Wishfull Thinking leads the opposition, with Paul Nicholls relying upon Shooters Wood and Edgardo Sol.

Nigel Twiston-Davies has Astracad and Pigeon Island engaged at this stage.

Kinkeel, Majala and Stagecoach Pearl complete the possible line-up.

On the same card, the Betfair Denman Chase has been reopened until Tuesday after the race received less than eight entries.
