Norton picks up Star Haydock ride

Franny Norton has been booked to ride Dancing Star in the 32Red Sprint Cup at Haydock on Saturday, trainer Andrew Balding has announced.

Dancing Star has been one of the most improved sprinters of 2016

The Kingsclere handler is delighted to have secured the services of the weighing-room veteran for his Stewards' Cup winner, who was supplemented for the six-furlong Group One at Monday's five-day confirmation stage.

"Franny Norton rides Dancing Star on Saturday. We just had to wait for confirmation whether Mark Johnston wanted him. He's at Haydock so he's able to ride," said Balding.

"He knows Haydock well and he's ridden good winners both for me and owner Jeff Smith in the past and he's riding better than ever.

"The filly is in good form."
