  • Fontwell Racecourse Guide

    Type of Racing: National Hunt Only.

    Highlights: The National Spirit Hurdle used to be a Champion Hurdle trial over 18f but has since increased the distance to 20f and become a handicap. The Grade 2 National Spirit is regarded more as a World Hurdle trial.

    Guide to course: The fences are generally easy, the chase course has a unique figure of eight chase configuration that can lead to rich pickings for course specialists that adapt to it.

    Many front-runners look like being hauled in but as it appears difficult to catch and overtake them, more hold on than may be expected.

    On soft or heavy going better ground can often be found by steering a wide track. 

    Tired horses on the hurdles run-in can be distracted by the paddock entrance as they approach the finish.

  • How to get the best Fontwell tips

    As already mentioned Fontwell's chase course is a unique figure of eight configuration and is very much a 'horses for courses' track so paying close attention to local trainers is a good move as their runners race regularly here and many develop a strong track suitability trend. 

    Sussex trainer Gary Moore has more runners at the track than any other operation (over 300 since the start of 2014) and will often have multiple entries, the second string and less fancied should not be ignored. 

    Former Champion trainer Paul Nicholls looks to the big prize races at Fontwell, Harry Fry (9 winners from 19 runners) and Kerry Lee (5 winners from 13 runners) have great strike rates with their handicappers.

  • Fontwell Jockey & Trainer Statistics

    Who are the best jockeys and trainers to bet on at Fontwell ?

    Local trainer Gary Moore has trained the most winners (55 from 343 runners) at Fontwell over the past 5 seasons but backing all his runners here would have returned a level stakes loss in that period. 

    Gary does have a good record with his bumper runners (6 winners from 29 runners) and OLBG tipsters tipping his non handicap runners (28 winners from 116 runners) would be showing a decent strike rate and level stakes profit for all three codes.
