 FONTWELL


Fontwell is one of the south of England’s busiest courses, currently staging 24 national hunt meetings throughout the year (July is the only month in which racing does not take place). Though located in West Sussex, it is operated by Northern Racing. Hurdle races are run on a sharp one-mile round, left-handed circuit but the chase course is a figure-of-eight. Now Windsor no longer stages jump racing, it is the only national hunt course of this nature in the UK.


The National Spirit Trophy Hurdle, a Grade 2 contest run in February, is Fontwell’s big race of the year. Salmon Spray, Comedy Of Errors and French superstar Baracouda are all past winners. It used to be a 2m2f race and was once considered a legitimate Champion Hurdle trial but the distance was increased to 2m4f in 2004 and nowadays attracts more staying types. Favourites continue to enjoy a very good strike rate in the race.


Fontwell first staged racing in 1924 on land acquired by legendary local trainer Alfred Day and can be found just south of the A27 Arundel Road where it meets the A29, east of Chichester. The nearest station is at Barnham and a shuttle bus operates on racedays to the track.


David Rees and David Bridgwater’s runners have a decent strike rate at the track, as do Sophie Leech and David Pipe’s chasers. The latter’s bumper horses are also worth a second look and blanket support of Martin Keighley’s hurdlers has also returned a profit in recent years.
