1.50pm Wincanton Tips & Betting Preview 11/11/2017

1.50pm Wincanton tips for Saturday’s Class 2 race. A field of eleven go to post as the ITV4 action on Saturday kicks off with a 2m 5f Handicap Hurdle. Read on for our free betting tips, predictions and analysis.

IN SUMMARY: Many of these have form that can be intertwined, such as The Organist who was hugely unlucky to end up behind Indian Stream at Cheltenham when they last met as she was badly hampered. She looks the main danger to our selection SECRET DOOR, who won twice earlier this year and ran well on her seasonal debut at Uttoxeter last month. She needed the run and will be much happier going back in trip. She looks very tough to beat with James Bowen taking off a valuable seven pounds claim.

1 INDIAN STREAM – Better known for her chasing exploits but she’s more than capable over hurdles, as proven by a placed effort in the Mares’ Hurdle at the Festival. She placed off this mark in a Listed Handicap back in April and will improve for her seasonal debut. Unlikely to be far away under Tom Scudamore, who takes over.

2 JESSBER’S DREAM – Lightly raced seven year old for Paul Nicholls who finished second in a Listed race at Warwick in February, though she was pulled up subsequently in a Handicap at Ayr. She’s now a pound lower and not badly treated at her best, but she’s entitled to need this.

3 THE ORGANIST – Her jumping has been her main downfall for Oliver Sherwood, looking very useful earlier in her career. She was highly unlucky when fourth at Cheltenham in a Listed race, badly hampered in the run. She still only finished under a length behind Indian Stream and her claims are obvious.

4 COPPER KAY – Had a good campaign over hurdles last season for Philip Hobbs, second in a Listed Novices’ Hurdle at Newbury in March. She was poor on her chasing/seasonal debut but was entitled to need that run, with her handicap mark not particularly harsh. Each way player under the Champion Jockey.

5 TARA VIEW – Won her first three starts over hurdles, completing the hat-trick with a comfortable victory over On Demand at Ludlow. She wasn’t disgraced since behind Copper Kay at Newbury and she’s hugely unexposed. She goes well fresh and rates as a big danger.

6 ON DEMAND – Course and distance winner who has run twice this season already, winning a two mile handicap when last seen at this track. This is much tougher and her current mark demands further progress, so she may just be found out back up in grade today.

7 WIZARD’S SLIABH – Looked progressive on her first few starts over hurdles but that progression petered out towards the end of the season. Her return run at Uttoxeter was no disgrace but more is needed off this mark and others are preferred on balance.

8 SECRET DOOR – Lightly raced mare for Harry Fry who won twice earlier this year, running a promising race on seasonal debut at Uttoxeter. She’s still unexposed and will be much happier taken back in trip, with James Bowen taking off a hugely useful seven pounds. Shouldn’t be for catching here.

9 ELLENS WAY – Only three runs under rules for this five year old who won an eighteen runner Novices’ Hurdle at Warwick back in December, ahead of Copper Kay. She meets that rival on even better terms this time around on handicap debut and is a strong each way contender if ready to rock on seasonal debut.

10 LAMANVER ODYSSEY – Looks to be the second string for Harry Fry, making her handicap debut today off a mark which doesn’t see her well treated. She was well behind Copper Kay and Tara View at Newbury last time and shouldn’t be good enough here.

11 MIDNIGHT TUNE – Has finished second on her last two runs for Anthony Honeyball, though in the context of this race the form isn’t the strongest. She goes up in grade on seasonal debut and looks firmly up against it.
