Fontwell Park has been a happy hunting ground for us in recent seasons (I was slightly surprised to see in the recent Racing Post Weekender stable tour that we have had more winners there than at any other course!) and our record there this season has been impressive, with 7 winners from 25 runners prior to Definite Dawn’s run in the conditional jockeys handicap chase.

Michael Byrne’s allowance in these races has proved very valuable in the last couple of months but on this occasion the weight made no difference, as Definite Dawn ran out a very easy winner to further boost our Fontwell statistics! He is now likely to head for a race at the Cheltenham October meeting.
