A fine season crowned at Punchestown – after victory in the Melling Chase at Aintree, Fox Norton carries off another Grade 1 prize as the seven-year-old lands the BoyleSports Champion Chase at the Punchestown Festival in Ireland under jockey Robbie Power for trainer Colin Tizzard.
Colin Tizzard celebrates more Grade 1 victory in his best-ever season as a trainer, while jockey Robbie Power wins his sixth top-level race in 2017 alone, in addition to the Coral Cup and Grand Annual at the Cheltenham Festival and the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse.
The future looks exciting for Fox Norton, who has competed at all three spring festivals and performed admirably at each. A potential try at three miles could be on the cards next season, and possibly in the King George VI Chase at Kempton on Boxing Day.
