  • How to get the best Fontwell picks

    Fontwell's chase track is a unique figure of eight configurations and is very much a 'horses for courses' track so paying close attention to local trainers is a good move as their runner's 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 and will often have multiple entries, the second string and less fancied should not be ignored.

    Many front-runners look like being hauled in but can be difficult to catch, more hold on than may be expected.

    On soft or heavy going particularly over hurdles, the better ground can often be found by steering a wide track. 

    Also worth noting, tired horses on the hurdles run-in can be distracted by the paddock entrance as they approach the finish.

    Fontwell is a specialist track so it's worth checking out the picks from OLBG's best horse racing tipsters.
