Wincanton plays host to racing on Sunday.

Timeform take a look at a tricky handicap hurdle at Wincanton on Sunday...

"Tiqris was possibly unlucky not to register his second win over hurdles when brought down 2 out in a handicap at Newbury earlier in the month and may be able to gain compensation..."


Tiqris is progressing steadily over hurdles, looking the likeliest winner when brought down 2 out in a Newbury handicap this month. Commands respect off the same mark back up in trip now.

Vicente posted a much better effort second-time-up for Paul Nicholls when runner-up in a hood at Taunton (19f) last month. Claims if running to a similar level now tackling a handicap.

Alder Mairi regained progressive thread when back on the scoreboard over this C&D in January. Respectable effort after being reassessed over shorter last time, and contender back at optimum trip now.

Castlemorris King has improved over hurdles since going handicapping, winning 3 times in 2013. Shaped as though needing race when reappearing in a jumpers' bumper last month, but current mark just about sums him up.

Gold Ingot stepped up on earlier efforts over hurdles to open account at Kempton (21f) 10 months ago. Well held sole outing since, and no easy task now handicapping on return from a winter break.

Ballinalacken bettered form of hurdles win when midfield at Kempton (21f) in October. In process of running below that level when falling at Hexham in November, and stiff task now handicapping on return.

Old Tricks produced best run since his second over 22f here in December when third at Exeter last month. Further ease in weights will help, but 2 years since he last tasted success.

Falcon Island showed signs of a mini-revival when twice shaping with a bit more enthusiasm in December, but one to avoid after downing tools again at this venue in January.

Timeform 1-2-3:
1. Tiqris
2. Alder Mairi
3. Vicente

Timeform Verdict: Tiqris was possibly unlucky not to register his second win over hurdles when brought down 2 out in a handicap at Newbury earlier in the month and may be able to gain compensation from the same mark here. Alder Mairi and Vicente may be the ones to benefit if he disappoints.
