Sunday Selections from #Fontwell #Sedgefield

The latest selections

I’d Like To Know 1pt win only 15/2 (105 Fontwell) – Made a very promising start under rules for this local yard when winning what can only be described as an ordinary race, but did so in good enough style despite his main rival unseating late on. Was plunged into much deeper water on his latest outing however in a very good grade 2 novice event and didn’t do himself any favours racing far too keenly and giving ground away around the outside. That race has since produced some pretty decent form and we give this one another chance now back in calmer waters. Freddie Gordon takes off a very valuable 7lb today which negates the penalty that he would have gone here under for that earlier win.

Concrete King 1pt win only 9/1 (215 Fontwell) – Finished off last term with a couple of runs over fences and resumed play this season with a decent enough run in a chase at Wetherby. Returns to the smaller obstacles today perhaps for a boost of confidence following a fall and a few errors over fences and does so from what looks a fair mark with a very valuable 7lb taken off by a talented claimer. Has gone well over hurdles previously and the stats stack up well for this partnership Miss T Eyston is 6 wins and 3 placed from 17 for this yard for a 35% strike with a LSP of +18. She is also 2 wins and 1 placed from 3 around Fontwell.

D’Jango 1pt win only 14/1 (250 Fontwell) – Takes a fair drop in grade today albeit up against a couple of potential improvers at the head of the market. Has been running in some pretty competitive races however from way out of the handicap, including when 15lb above his mark in the Welsh National. Latest run however was an encouraging one in the Sussex National when 3rd to a couple who had clearly been targeted at that race and is worth another try today down in grade with conditions to suit.

Midnight Shuffle 1pt win only 17/2 (1250 Sedgefield) – A comfortable bumper winner who returned to action last time out following 18 moths off the track to produce a fairly tame effort. Ran well for a long time but faded quickly as the tempo increased. Could well come on heaps for that outing however and will come here much fitter and with her yard in good form too. Will also get 7lb from today’s favourite.

No Regrets 1pt win only 8/1 (125 Sedgefield) – Has struggled to get competitive so far this term but has been given a chance by the handicapper today. Eased another 5lb and dropping in grade with conditions looking slightly more favourable and this one is a much more interesting proposition today. Has not really been given a hard time in his 3 chase runs since returning from 562 days off the track and a more convincing effort can be expected soon enough.

Elleon 1pt win only 11/2 (345 Sedgefield) – Second over CD in behind Skyhill two starts back and re opposes today some 9lb better off at the weights. Latest run over an inadequate trip can be ignored and a better run can be expected today back up in trip. Still unexposed over these bigger obstacles and will have a win at this level in the lock up.
