Wincanton Preview - 05/01/2019

12:30 - Stormingin

The opening race from Wincanton is the Best Odds Guaranteed With BetVictor Handicap Hurdle, and Stormingin can continue his fine progression hurdling.

A useful horse on the flat over usually ten furlongs, he was a close third on handicap debut at Fakenham for trainer Gary Moore and there looks to be more to come here over the minimum NH trip.


13:05 - Braventara

Braventara's two runs over hurdles this season have both come in Wales, and she can go one better than her most recent performance there by taking first-place prized honours in the Choose Your Horse With BetVictor's Betfinder Chase.

One of two mares in the field, she came up against the smart looking Truckers Lodge back in December who continues to rise the classes himself.

A win does not look too far away and is one for the shortlist.

13:35 - Kapcorse

Kapcorse looks a very smart prospect going forward for the red-hot Paul Nicholls, in the colours of JP McManus, who now takes his place in the BetVictor Jump Starter Welcome Offer Novices' Hurdle.

Now a 6yo, he drew clear to an easy victory at Newbury on Ladbrokes Trophy weekend, beating two subsequent Christmas winners.

Caught the eye that day, and should take all the beating here once again.

14:05 - The Dellercheckout

The Dellercheckout needs to improve on his hurdles form, but could do that on his first start over the larger obstacles in the BetVictor Bet 5 Get 30 Offer Chase.

The 6yo gelding rounded off 2018 with a good third at Ludlow over timber, is still very lightly raced and will look to break his six-race maiden tag on his chasing bow.

Interesting participant, with Bryony Frost aboard.

14:40 - Tedham

Tedham's form figures currently reads 432, so trainer Jonjo O'Neill will be coming that the '1' arrives in the Lengthen The Odds With BetVictor Handicap Hurdle.

He was only five lengths down to the highly-talented Getaway Trump, who went onto finish second for Paul Nicholls and Harry Cobden in the Grade One Challow Novices at Newbury between Christmas and New Year.

Very solid form including his third to The Big Bite earlier on in the season, and holds a leading chance here.

15:15 - Calipto

Calipto was in the process of running a good race when unseating at Chepstow just nine days ago, but has a chance to redeem himself in the BetVictor Guaranteed Run For Your Money Handicap Chase.

Was only three lengths down on the leaders when parting company with Charlie Deutsch at the final fence, and today relies on the young-promising Conditional Jockey Hugh Nugent, who takes off 7lbs.

Will be on the premises for sure.

15:50 - Winston C

The final race on the card is the BetVictor Horse Racing Multiples Cash Out Maiden Hurdle, and Winston C - well known for his flat career for Michael Bell, in the colours of Big Orange gives it his second go over obstacles.

His performance provided plenty of promise against some useful young horses at Huntingdon last time, finishing behind Brewin'upastorm and Brecon Hill, who have both already had very successful seasons.

Strong form in the book, and ready to bounce on again.
