One For Arthur may return to Haydock Park for Tommy Whittle Chase day


The 2017 Randox Health Grand National winner had not run since his triumph in the world's greatest steeplechase due to a tendon injury.


He made his return back at the scene of his finest hour at Aintree on Saturday - although he fell at the third fence in the Grade Two Many Clouds Chase over the Mildmay fences – the race was won for a second successive year by Brian Ellison's Definitly Red.

The Lucinda Russell-trained nine-year-old is set to go again before the end of the month with Haydock Park’s Tommy Whittle Chase on December 22 or the Rowland Meyrick Handicap Chase at Wetherby on Boxing Day as the options.


Lucinda Russell said: "He seemed to be very fresh and over-enthusiastic and although he jumped the first two fences well, he stood off the next," she said.

"After that performance, we'll need to get him out again a bit sooner than we would've liked and we'll look at races at Wetherby and Haydock over Christmas.


Off the track, Haydock will be getting into the Christmas spirit. Spin the famous Winning Post of Fortune in the Paddock, pick up your very own Santa hat, listen to the Haydock Brass band and enjoy a mulled wine and mince pie or two whilst watching the racing!


Tickets for the Tommy Whittle Chase on Saturday 22 December and The Last Fling on Sunday 30 December start from £14. Make sure you do not miss out over the festive period and come racing with your friends and family.
