They’re back on track at Fontwell Park

A SEVEN-RACE card promises a packed afternoon of jump racing at Fontwell Park today.

There are 70 declared runners across the card, with plenty of runners familiar to Fontwell regulars involved.

The action begins at 2pm with the Crohn’s In Children Research Association Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle and continues with the Hardings Catering Services Handicap Chase at 2.30, which could feature the Richard Rowe-trained eight-year-old Current Climate, who has not been out of the top four in three appearances at Fontwell in the past five months.

The final race is the Brakes Fresh Ideas Supporting CICRA Handicap Hurdle at 5.15.

OUR FONTWELL TIPS: 2.00 Ninfea, 2.30 Current Climate, 3.05 Owner Occupier, 3.40 Sir Du Bearn, 4.15 Osmosia, 4.45 Oncle Kid, 5.15 Terra Bleu.

We’ll have a report on the meeting on this website early this evening.
