Wincanton - Wednesday 26th February 2020

1 2:18 PM - CRS Building Supplies Ltd Handicap Chase

This Breac has been raised 5lb for winning over 2m at Leicester earlier in the month and is expected to give it his best shot up in distance, though preference is for BLUE MONDAY, who makes strong appeal on his 2m5f victory on heavy ground at Hereford in December. While he needs to step up on his last run at Fakenham, Fergal O'Brien's seven-year-old may benefit from being held onto for longer on this occasion. Bellamy's Grey drops back from 3m and merits a market check now sporting first-time blinkers.

2 2:48 PM - Watch On Racing TV Novices' Hurdle

Fidelio Vallis looked beaten when falling at the last at Chepstow and hasn't made the sort of impact that was hoped in two starts since arriving from France. It might be worth taking a chance on Gary Moore's RIGHT HAND OF GOD, a recent third after racing keenly at Fontwell, in the hope he can settle better in this larger field. Neil Mulholland's new recruit, Ragamuffin, boasts winning form between the flags and is another to monitor closely in the betting.

3 3:18 PM - Buy Your Building Materials From CRS Handicap Chase

KAYF ADVENTURE is now rated 1lb lower than when winning over C&D in 2018 and may be able to build on his 2m5f Ascot third last month now fitted with first-time cheekpieces. The main danger may be the consistent Admiral's Secret, who is expected to remain competitive having been raised 5lb for scoring over this trip at Leicester and who chased home Molineaux over 2m here on his penultimate start.

4 3:50 PM - Follow RacingTV On Instagram Novices' Hurdle

ASK FOR GLORY ran with plenty of credit on his hurdling debut when fourth in a decent contest at Newbury in November. The step up in trip promises to unlock a decent chunk of improvement from Paul Nicholls' gelding based on what he has shown so far under Rules, and he can account for Minella Beat, who has undergone wind surgery since his second at Fontwell in October, and Special Buddy.

5 4:20 PM - CRS Free Local Delivery Mares' Handicap Hurdle

MINNIE ESCAPE appeared to be still well ahead of the handicapper when scoring at Taunton last month by nine and a half lengths and Victor Dartnall's mare is capable of making it three victories out of her last four starts. Molliana ended her spell over timber last season in good heart and is of interest having acquitted herself well recently on the Flat, while her stable companion, Princess T, and Broke Away are others to note.

6 4:50 PM - 2nd CRS Customer Race Day Handicap Hurdle

MALACHYS GIRL shaped with plenty of promise when fifth in novice company at Taunton after almost a year off the track and is fully expected to do better with that outing under her belt. The switch to handicap company off a fair mark of 109 should suit, and the seven-year-old will also enjoy this extra test of stamina. Arctic Footprint bumped into a smart sort (since followed up) at Exeter last time when second and should be competitive, while Fenlons Court is also expected to be involved.

7 5:20 PM - Dick And Sue Woodhouse Memorial Hunters' Chase (For The Dick Woodhouse Trophy)

SWIFT CRUSADOR was travelling with intent before unseating his rider at Bangor-on-Dee earlier this month and it wouldn't be a surprise if Sam Drinkwater's charge made amends here. The nine-year-old won a Sandown handicap off 120 in December 2018, so certainly has the ability needed to win a race of this nature. David Maxwell has an excellent record in this sphere so Chef D'Equipe warrants obvious respect, while Art Mauresque is another name to note.
