Tom has three booked rides today at Fontwell.

Disappointed, including with his jumping, on chase debut at Kempton 16 days ago.

Owner - Mrs Mary-Ann Middleton - Trainer - Joe Tizzard

Promise all three starts; needs to build on that to win but he will probably be placed.

Owners - Goodwin Racing Ltd - Trainer - Chris Gordon

Was third on his debut in a bumper at Kempton (good) in March 2021.

He then had a long absence before two runs at Plumpton this winter which were

also encouraging. He finished second on his hurdling debut last month and should

have built on that today.


Dropped to the rear at halfway but stayed on takingly to finish third at Chepstow.

Owners - Goodwin Racing Ltd - Trainer - Chris Gordon

This lad dropped to the rear at halfway but stayed on well to finish third at Chepstow

(good to soft) on his debut last time. The winner of that race trained by Paul Nicholls

was well touted and the fifth horse won next time. Should have every chance today.
