Fontwell Park family raceday: preview and our tips

FONTWELL PARK expects one of its biggest crowds of the year for its family race day today (May 26).

There are 79 declared runners across the seven races ahead, so some competitive racing seems certain.

Action on the track begins at 2.20pm with the Fostering Solutions National Hunt Maiden Hurdle and continues until 5.40pm and the Tripoli Handicap Hurdle.

One of the highlights will be the £10,000 Krac De Chevaliers Handicap Chase at 4.05pm.

Away from the racing, there is plenty of free entertainment including bouncy castles, a fun fair and pets’ corner.

There’s also a chance for parents to find out about a new kids’ club, Young Hooves.

Gates open at midday.
