First day of an interesting jumps meeting at Fontwell. Going to look at two races from the West Sussex track. The going is Good and the course has been watered. Rain expected this afternoon.
Workbench has dropped to a fair handicap mark over fences. However he disappointed on latest start over hurdles. You have to look back to this race in 2015 for his last victory, he also won this event in 2014 and therefore seeks a hat-trick today.
Bottom weighted Theatre Flame is fitted with cheek-pieces and can improve as he markedly steps up in class. Tom Cannon takes the ride for the first time today as Tom Scudamore is on the Pipe entry Purple and Gold.
I go 9/4 jt fav’s Workbench and Theatre Flame.
Wizards Bridge has been found a weak race and is weighted to win if retaining any of his old ability. Has been off the track since early May. Finished just the one race in four starts this year.
However, there are various doubts about all his rivals.
My provisional pricing:
Wizards Bridge 2/1
Strumble Head 9/2
Indiana Bay 9/2
Schindler’s Prince 9/2
Master Rajeem 14/1
Please note that there will not be a blog next Friday or Saturday as I prepare for the main jumps campaign. Get your free information pack and more details click here.
