The Grade 2 Kingwell Hurdle at Wincanton in February is often used as a final prep race for Champion Hurdle hopefuls and classy hurdlers Inglis Drever, Katchit and Binocular are among those who have won the race since the turn of the century. There are often small fields, however, and short-priced favourites are common. The Listed Badger Ales Chase, in November, is another highlight of Wincanton’s season, which runs from October to May, and always attracts some of the west country’s best handicap chasers. David Pipe’s stable usually has a fancied runner and Paul Nicholls, who is based nearby, has saddled the winner four times in the last 12 years.
Right-handed, Wincanton is fairly sharp and predominantly flat but the racing is usually of a decent quality and races are often run at a fast pace so any stamina limitations will be exposed over hurdles or fences.

Along with Paul Nicholls’ chasers, Emma Lavelle’s runners often end up in the winner’s circle while it may pay to keep a close eye on Steven Dixon’s hurdlers in future years. Philip Hobbs’ also does well with his hurdlers, particularly in the longer novice events, Colin Tizzard’s bumper horses should be monitored in the betting.
Jockey Club-run Wincanton is on the B3081 between Wincanton and Bruton in Somerset, north of the A303 between Martock and Mere. The nearest station is at Templecombe, four miles south of Wincanton. A courtesy shuttle bus operates on race days.
