Last year’s winner Waiting Patiently is one of nine horses in contention for Saturday’s Betfair Ascot Chase.

Ruth Jefferson’s charge landed the Grade One event last term, but unseated his rider on his only subsequent start on his belated return in the King George at Kempton.

Paul Nicholls has two contenders in Cyrname, a wide-margin handicap winner at the track last time, and King George fourth Politologue.

Colin Tizzard has entered Fox Norton, who is firmly on the comeback trail after finishing a seven-length second to Altior on his first start after a long absence.

Nicky Henderson has two contenders in Top Notch and Janika, while Grand National hope Abolitionist could represent Dr Richard Newland.

The Kim Bailey-trained Charbel and Venetia Williams’ Aso complete the possible field.
