Foxhunter Chase 2020 Tips
Another tricky affair in The Foxhunters Chase. 7 of the last 12 winners have come from the top 3 in the betting. With 10 of the last 12 winners being 8 years or older. The favourite, Hazel Hill won this race last year and is entered again this renewal.
Comes into this race in fine form and could well be the one to beat here.
Has excellent Chelteham form and would be a great EW bet.
