Speaking on Friday morning, Henderson said: "We are very happy with the horse and very much looking forward to taking him to Ireland.
"He deserves to go and Punchestown has always been very good to us.
"Barry (Geraghty) sat up on him yesterday and said that he felt great. All his checks are good and he appears to be in great form."
Punchestown general manager Dick O'Sullivan said: "Sprinter Sacre coming to Punchestown is a massive sporting occasion, he is a magnificent athlete and you don't need to be a racing fan to appreciate sheer sporting brilliance when you see it.

"He has mentioned a couple of times that the people of Ireland would really appreciate a chance to see Sprinter Sacre race and he has delivered on that today."
