Fox Norton Returning At Ascot

Fox Norton - a dual Grade One winner, and was only a head-second in the Queen Mother Champion Chase of 2017.

Remember him?

Last seen pulling up in last season's (2017) King George behind Might Bite almost thirteen months ago, his lengthy absence since has been unknown.

Now, he attempts to drop back in trip and appears to have Nicky Henderson's Champion Chaser Altior in his sights in the Clarence House in two weeks time, which of course is a big ask no matter who you are.

Trainer Colin Tizzard appears to have several candidates for the Gold Cup at Cheltenham over three-miles at his disposal, and after a fantastic December, he believes his returning 9yo can be the one to bring an end to Altior's almighty reign over two.

(Credit: Racing Post) He said: "Fox Norton's nearly ready to run. He's been absolutely fine and the plan would be to have one run and then go to Cheltenham, but we’ll have to decide for what race.

"He very nearly won the Champion Chase a couple of years ago, remember, so we've got that to think about.

"I'd say races over two to two and a half miles is what we'd be looking at for him in the spring. I wouldn’t go further than that with him again," he said.

It was a very merry Christmas for the Dorset Trainer, who strengthened his hand for the Gold Cup with Thistlecrack and Native River running tremendous races in the King George last month behind Clan Des Obeaux, whilst Elegant Escape cruised to victory in the Welsh Grand National. 

Fox Norton has been priced at 12/1 for the Ascot Grade One, for which Altior is a short 2/7 favourite, and maybe, just maybe, can provide a true rival to Altior's unbeaten dominance.
