Here’s why this 9/2 shot can land the prize at Wincanton

Jump Racing is taking centre stage on ITV on Saturday, and Fitzy's at Wincanton for some competitive races...

Mick Fitzgerald


12.40 Wincanton

The first race of the day looks made for Harry Fry and Noel Fehily to win with If The Cap Fits.

The forecast rain should not affect this one, and Kilbricken Storm will chase him home.

1.15 Wincanton

Play The Ace has made hay this summer, but with the rain to come it will turn into a slog and we could see a surprise winner.

Howlongisafoot has form on slow ground, but so has Nick Mitchell’s Dance Floor King, his young pilot is very capable too.

1.50 Wincanton

I am really tempted by Tara View in this, but lack of a recent run just put me off.

Instead, I’ve gone for for Harry Fry’s mare Secret Door ridden by James Bowen. The fact that this mare had a run on soft ground already this season swayed it.

2.25 Wincanton

A Rising Stars chase has been won by some smart horses in the past, and Modus would be another to add to that list.

I was really impressed with him on his debut over fences, he jumped brilliantly. Kalondra is no pushover but this lad should win.

3.00 Wincanton

The Elite Hurdle is a good race because it’s a handicap, for that reason I am going for London Prize.

This lad has already won at a decent price when winning last year at Sandown, and like the ground he’s been in really good form this summer. I think the danger is Zubayr.

3.35 Wincanton

I love Yala Enki.

He wears his heart on his sleeve and he is genuine, the worry here is it’s his first run of the season, though I do think he has an each way chance.

He’s a chance here, but the nod goes to Fletcher’s Flyer. He won a decent staying chase at Punchestown and could still be handicapped to win.
