Oddschecker tips for every race at Fontwell on Friday.
GOLD BONNE RAINE steadily progressed throughout the year, culminating in a career-best effort last time at Ffos Las when beaten just a length into second. A 3lb higher mark shouldn't be too much of a hinderance and the seven-year-old has performed well in the hands of jockey Isabel Williams the last twice. Quinto was well held last time but has been given a chance racing off the same handicap mark back over timber. The veteran Snowball is another who appears well treated now 13lb lower than when last successful in this sphere. Prediction : 1st Gold Bonne Raine 2nd Quinto 3rd Snowball
Despite coming out second best on her chasing debut, there was a lot to like about MOLLY CHILDERS' performance and she drew well clear of the rest of the field at Bangor that day. Stuart Edmunds' six-year-old is now tried in a tongue-tie, which should help at the business end of proceedings, and it will be no surprise if she comes out on top here. Jet Set was a useful hurdler last season and is entitled to be on the premises if transferring the best of her form over timber to her new discipline, while Dinos Benefit claimed a notable scalp over timber in the spring and is well worth another try at this distance despite disappointing last time. Prediction : 1st Molly Childers 2nd Jet Set 3rd Dinos Benefit
Seamus Mullins is double-handed here with the consistent Kentford Heiress and She's Gina, who would have leading claims if in the same form as when scoring at Warwick in the summer. Shambra produced a useful reappearance when second at Stratford, beaten less then two lengths, and has to be respected. However, preference is for SOLSTALLA, who came out on top in that contest and the step in distance here should allow her to extend the winning margin over the aforementioned, with a leading jockey taking over now in the saddle.Prediction : 1st Solstalla 2nd Shambra 3rd Shes Gina
COMMANCHE RED was a decent performer in the NH flat sphere and was considered good enough for a crack at the Grade 2 bumper at Aintree, where he didn't disgrace himself finishing sixth to Portrush Ted. His other bumper efforts were filled with promise, a third at Southwell behind Strong Glance and beating well-touted rivals when scoring at Kempton, and made a pleasing start to his hurdling career here last month. He wouldn't need to improve on that performance to beat Mon Port, who has a lot to prove after a lacklustre display at Fakenham, and Tigeralley, who makes her debut for Dan Skelton.Prediction : 1st Commanche Red 2nd Mon Port 3rd Tigeralley
SOUNDS OF ITALY improved from his first outing for Dan Skelton over hurdles at Uttoxeter when winning as he pleased at the same track over fences last month. A 12lb rise looks very fair for that performance and he could have further improvement to come. Bermeo has won his last two chases at Newton Abbot and Worcester so warrants consideration as he is only 4lb higher due to the narrow margins of those victories, while a return to fences could see Mortens Leam improve as he is 19lb lower than when last encountering them at Fakenham in March.Prediction : 1st Sounds Of Italy 2nd Bermeo 3rd Mortens Leam
SIGN OF WAR makes plenty of appeal on pedigree with some of his relatives winning contests in this sphere before going on to make into good prospects over obstacles. Two of his those, Rather Be and Sign Of A Victory, have proven themselves to be top-class handicappers and Evan Williams' gelding can make a winning start to his career. I K Brunel cost 62,000 euros as a store horse in June 2017 and warrants respect for Olly Murphy, while House Island should possess enough speed for a contest of this nature being a half-brother to useful miler Lexington Times.Prediction : 1st Sign Of War 2nd I K Brunel 3rd House Island
