Foxhunter Chase Foxrock

Horse racing - Cheltenham - 16 Mar 16:00

I remember in the build up to last years festival there was plenty of money for this horse and plenty of talk about him, in the end though he was ineligible to even run in it having placed in a graded race the previous season.

The reason there was money about and plenty of talk is because Foxrock is a class animal and should be on a different level to horses at hunter chase level.

He went some way to backing that up last season winning 4 hunter chases in a row, winning distances of 9, 2, 3 & 13 lengths. In one of those wins he beat the 2015 & 2016 Foxhunter Chase winner On The Fringe easily by over 3 lengths.

I believe he was campaigned to win this race last season, a plot horse. Obviously he was ineligible in the end but I suspect he's been plotted at winning it this year instead. No doubt he retains more than enough ability to win this, in fact he's surely the one to beat if turning up.

We've yet to see him this season however he's now got an entry in a hunter chase on Sunday. I suspect he will be win that and maybe win again not long after, just like last season when he won 4 on the bounce, after which these odds will be gone as punters smell a plot.

He's actually switched yards recently too, from Ted Walsh to Alan Fleming. A change of scenery to make sure he's at his best for when this race comes around? An interesting switch for sure.

If he turns up here he will be a class above and the one to beat. I can't see him going off any bigger than 3/1 on the day either. An obvious one for double stakes at 8/1 with William Hill who also offer non-runner insurance too in case he doesn't turn up.
