Race Type: Class 3 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 3m 1f

Race Preview

DHOWIN opened his account for the season with a third-place finish at Lingfield on a shorter two and a half mile trip.

That was in October and he should be sharper for that.

A big factor is also Dhowin coming up on a trip for this contest. That was a decent opener over the fences and he can kick on in this sphere.

CAPTAIN TOMMY is on a reduced mark and is coming down in grade.

He has gone in tougher fixtures than this the last twice. Those were at Bangor-on-Dee and Market Rasen.

With those factors in play, Captain Tommy, who won over the fences at Uttoxeter in May on a 3m trip, can’t be dismissed. Place claims should be there.

The other shortlisted contender is CREALION who is tried at a longer trip here.

He has gone close the last twice in shorter handicaps.

The most recent of those was the third-place here at Wincanton and back in the spring, he won a couple of times in this sphere over France.


Ones to watch: Captain Tommy 7/2, Dhowin 9/2

14:45 Wincanton Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing UK Tips

Race Type: Class 3 handicap hurdle
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 9
Distance: 1m 7f

Race Preview

This handicap hurdle looks to be wide open with a lot of reasonably stronger players taking on the challenge.

The first pick for the shortlist in this contest is TULIN who has had back to back solid runs, finishing runner up in both.

He is still progressing and all but for a couple of mistakes at Exeter last time out, he probably would have scored.

HONNEUR D’AJONC has won two of his last three, including the latest run at Taunton three weeks ago.

That was a fairly comfortable effort from him and he didn’t have to really find much improvement for that.

He is strong and competitive and coming into his handicap debut, Honneur D’ajonc has to be considered for this one.

Another to watch is FANFAN DE SUEIL who looks to be on an appealing and competitive mark.

He receives weight from most of the field here.

There was a good second from Fanfan De Seuil on his reappearance and a solid follow up with another place finish at Exeter.

THE WIDDOW MAKER won a couple of times at the end of last season before signing off with a poor run at Aintree.

He’s from a top yard and a recent wind op could get him in this.


Ones to watch: Honneur D’ajonc 7/2, Tulin 7/2

15:15 Wincanton Handicap Chase Horse Racing Tips & Odds

Race Type: Class 5 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 8
Distance: 3m 2f

Race Preview

JONY MAX has taken back to back runner-up spots on his return to action this season.

So he has looked a better fit over the fences having been fairly average over the hurdles last season.

Back in October Jony Max was in action here at Wincanton on a 25f trip and was beaten only by a very progressive one in that one.

He looks as if he can make an impact in this fairly thin field.

BONANZA SAM keeps the headgear on which has helped him this season.

There was a win for him at Exeter in March on a 3m trip, so he has the stamina. He hasn’t quite been back to that winning form since then but is worth chancing for the shortlist.

BOMBER’S MOON makes his chasing debut on Thursday and while he is still a maiden he could make his presence felt in this one.

He was second at Hereford on his latest run four weeks ago and is interested in the switch to this sphere.

Tip: JONY MAX 5/4

Ones to watch: Bonanza Sam, Bomber’s Moon 7/2

Race Type: Class 5 handicap chase
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 11
Distance: 3m

Race Preview

MIRACULOUS GETAWAY can get himself heavily involved in this one if he can bring a clean round of jumping to proceedings on Thursday.

He did take his form over the fences forward with a third-place here at Market Rasen three weeks ago. Miraculous Getaway could get there.

DUBAI GUEST picked up his first win over the fences at Fakenham 16 days ago.

The former bumper winner looks to be heading in the right direction over the fences. There should be plenty of market interest in him.

LIGHT FLICKER gets on the shortlists as well as he was in great shape over the fences last season. He won a couple of chases last season.

It’s been two runs at Uttoxeter for Light Flicker this season without too much joy, but the ability is there if he can find a bit of a revival.

FELTON BELLEVUE is a little bit of a frustrating one to follow as well.

He looked fairly decent on his chasing debut with a second-place finish at Hereford three weeks ago.


Ones to watch: Dubai Guest 5/4, Felton Bellevue 8/1

14:52 Market Rasen Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Odds

Race Type: Class 5 handicap hurdle
Age: 4-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 12
Distance: 2m 7f

Race Preview

MALINAS ISLAND looks a strong contender for this one after taking a win at Linfield ago, and he does avoid a penalty for that success.

There’s a 3lb claimer to help him as well so he could come up with a strong follow-up bid.

That Lingfield success was just a week ago and if this isn’t too soon, Malinas Island can get in this.

LOCALLINK could be better for having had a reappearance run under his belt. That was three weeks ago and he wasn’t disgraced there.

This isn’t exactly the deepest of fields here either and the Irish point winner has place claims.

MISSCARLETT is a very good consistent performer and delivered the goods with a course and distance success two weeks ago.

That was only a narrow win, but it was the second win in her last five runs and again, the threats in this field don’t look too great.


Ones to watch: Malinas Island 5/4, Locallink 11/1

14:07 Leicester Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 4 handicap hurdle
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners:12
Distance: 2m 4f

Race Preview

GAME SOCKS looks like an obvious one to put on the shortlist for this one.

There was a good reappearance from him at Ludlow a month ago, as he took the runner-up spot.

He has been a fair hurdler and can find a way into this one. Game Socks should be sharper for having had that encouraging Ludlow run.

NORDANO was fourth on his reappearance at Lingfield last month.

The form from that race has been franked, so that boosts his claims.

He is still down in the weights and with the visor going on for the first time, then Nordano can make his presence felt on Thursday.

GO STEADY should be well tuned up for this one.

He opened the season with an excellent win, showing some good form over the fences this season.

As he is down in the rating on the switch back to the hurdles, there has to be a big chance for Go Steady on Thursday.

One more to consider for the shorts is SAMBEZI who was a faller on his reappearance a month ago.

That was his chasing debut. His chances can’t be dismissed on his return to this sphere at all.

Tip: GO STEADY 5/1

Ones to watch: Game Socks 3/1, Nordano 10/1
