14:10 Fontwell

On Springs was a ready winner at Ffos Las last week but hasn’t always been the most consistent so given the quick turnaround and the 7lbs penalty I am looking to take him on with Enrichissant who has made the frame in four from five over this trip, made the frame on only prior visit to the course and has dropped to an extremely appealing mark. His trainer has a great record here at Fontwell and he is partnered with Brendan Powell who is operating at a 40% winning strike rate in the last two weeks.

Of the remainder, Ben Buie was a well beaten third of four at Southwell on Monday and has done all his winning over shorter trips so it is Dell Oro who completes the shortlist on his first run for new trainer Milton Harris.


15:20 Fontwell

Good News arrives here having won his last three, however a further 4lbs rise takes him to a career high mark and his record of zero wins from five over course and distance tempers enthusiasm somewhat.

Preference is for Thunderstruck who is a prior course and distance winner who has put in two solid placed efforts since returning from a three-month break. A staying on second at Warwick when last seen, the slight extra distance should help see a return to the winners’ enclosure today.

Sammylou hasn’t been seen to best effect in three runs for Fergal O’Brien but was a course and distance winner off a 4lbs higher mark when trainers solely by Graeme McPherson so if re-finding that form would have to be considered should our selection fail to fire.
