SUTTER TO MILL DOWN FONTWELL OPPOSITION

15:45 Fontwell I'm surprised to see Exxaro the current market leader who, although is well handicapped, has won just once in 27 chase starts. That doesn't or wouldn't encourage me to become a favourite backer. This horse is in a bit of a decline and would ideally want good ground so looks easier to go against the favourite.

SUTTER'S MILL is coming back to a very similar mark and class to when he last came to Fontwell and won with soft conditions in October last year. Conditional jockey Conor Ring takes a handy 3-pound allowance off the horses back as well which always helps. He should be fitter than most having the benefit of a recent outing where as a few of his rivals haven't either raced this season or have poor recent form. Fontwell is a funny, old, quirky track so the fact my selection has course and distance form is highly encouraging and Evan Williams charge looks a solid selection.
