Tips for Wincanton Races

Located in the east of Somerset, there are plenty of trainers based near Wincanton so a lot of the racing is competitive and of good quality. The likes of Paul Nicholls send plenty of horses and it’s not unusual to see rising stars appear at the track.

Course: A sharp, flat right-handed oval of about a mile and a half. The fences can be quite demanding and three come quite quickly after the home straight so our tips need to be confident jumpers. Also due to the tracks sharp nature it’s not unusual to see plenty of races won from the front, so we often look for prominent racers for our tips.

Feature Races: Wincanton plays host to three Grade 2 races throughout the season with the Elite Hurdle, Rising Stars Novices’ Chase and most notably the Kingwell Hurdle. The latter takes place in February and is recognised as a Champion Hurdle trial. The Badger Ales Trophy is a staying handicap in November, worth over £34,000 to the winner in 2018. The race was upgraded to Listed status in 2003.
