Overturn's chase debut at Sandown should be interesting but Wincanton takes the centre stage of UK jumps racing todays with its Badger Ales Chase meeting.
Sandwiched between the feast of action from Down Royal, Wetherby and Ascot last week and the Cheltenham Open meeting next weekend it does feel a bit anti-climatic but there are still a few good races to get stuck in to.
The Badger Ales Trophy Chase
You might get or give a steer towards the winner on the forum thread or a look at previous winners. Diamond Harry is a bit of a wild Card but we are inclined to agree with the Racing Post YouTube tip - Paul Nicholl's Michel Le Bon. The Pricewise tip was for The Package.
Paul Nicholl's has been the man to follow in this race and saddles the morning favourite in Zakandar. Tom George's Baby Mix has the right age and rating profile of previous winners and would be our pick. Racing Post YouTube analysis is below and our forum thread here.
Free Bets for the entire National Hunt Season
If you are having a bet at Wincanton Skybet have introduced a new free bet promotion aimed at drawing in new football punters. In our view it also works out very well for regular jumps racing bettors. It is a nice deal for the weekend punter giving a free £5 bet every week until the end of May 2013 provided you have had a £5 bet during the previous week. If you miss one week the offer expires. New Skybet customers can find full details on how to claim an absolutely fee £10 bet and get up to £150 in additional free bets on this link. The offer ends on Friday 16th November - the first day of the Cheltenham Open meeting.
