Fact Of The Matter (6/1)
3.05 Cheltenham | December 14
“Fact Of The Matter was a close second last time out over these cross country fences and should improve for that experience over them. He is in tip top form but this looks very competitive once again. A repeat of his last effort should see him go close again though.”
12.50 Warwick | December 14
“Winner of an Irish point-to-point in the spring who now makes his debut over hurdles.”
The Ogle Gogle Man (Evens Fav)
1.10 Fontwell | December 11
“He’d obviously have a good chance; he’s favourite. I wouldn’t be backing him at even money though. He was beaten a short head the other day when he didn't jump well. If he jumps today he should win but I wouldn't be backing him at the price. He’s in good form and goes there with a good chance.”
