This week includes:

  • Action from Kempton Park and Fontwell Park
  • More winners for Nicky Henderson and Colin Tizzard 
  • A new name in the Ten To Follow top 10

It has been a relatively quiet week for Ten To Follow players with only five point scoring races across the weekend.

The action started with a Grade 2 chase at Kempton Park which was won nicely by the Harry Fry trained Bags Groove, securing 30 points for 5 Ten To Follow teams. The next race saw another impressive performance from a Nicky Henderson trained horse with Fusil Raffles smashing the course record to win well by 9 lengths. Congratulations to David Walters who was the only player to put the Henderson horse in his stable. Unfortunately, the horse picked up a small knock in running and is therefore unlikely to compete at this year’s Festival. The final point scoring races at Kempton were won by Southfield Stone, and Walt however neither of these horses were picked by any players, and so no points were scored.

On Sunday Fontwell Park held their feature raceday, hosting the Grade 2 National Spirit hurdle which saw Colin Tizzard’s Vision Des Flos return to winning ways beating off the likes of If The Cap Fits, Ballymoy and Old Guard. Vision Des Flos was included in 5 Ten To Follow teams, which each scored 30 points for the win.

Derek Latham still leads the way, with Penny Waddell and Gary Hutt not far behind. The full standings can be found here
