Soft/heavy ground at Fontwell today, the only turf meeting to survive. I was just talking to my father in law, he lives in Jedburgh right on the border, in Scotland, he tells me its -6, so here in Guernsey at 10 I feel quite a bit warmer. I see Hereford has been called off.
Todays Free tip is as follows:
Horse: Puppet Warrior
Time: 3.45 Fontwell
Current Odds: 6/4
This horse was a bit out of his depth last time at Ascot. In a much easier grade today, he should take all the beating, he handles soft ground and has the experience of having a couple of runs over hurdles, he was second on his first run over hurdles at Plumpton, if he reproduces that run he will be tough to beat, some good bumper form last season as well, will be helpful. I do like the jockey as well, he is under rated. Of rivals, Seaston Spirit has ran well in bumper races, he is though unproven on a soft surface, he will probably handle it, and is sure to be well schooled on his first run over hurdles in public, he is a danger. Mellow Ben has not really set the world alight on his runs in bumper races, he did run ok over hurdles last time, and he does come from a good yard, and may well show more today.
