UttoxeterOur top tipster, Daryl Carter brings a trio of selections for Sunday, with picks from the meeting at Wincanton. Check out his tips below, alongside an exclusive William Hill offer that provides new customers with £40 in free bets when you bet £10.


SMOKING PIGEON - (2.10 Wincanton, 1pt win - 6/1)

This is probably at the mercy of Shearer, but his form amounts to nothing and not once has he shaped like a stayer, so he may find it tough to peg back SMOKING PIGEON, who is the sole pace angle in this race.

The selection jumped out to the right at Uttoxeter last time, and the return (point to point) to a right-handed track looks a big positive. This race lacks any depth whatsoever, so he may be able to steal this off the front end.

WANDRIN STAR - (2.45 Wincanton, 1pt win - 10/1)

Plenty in with chances here, but WANDERIN STAR has an excellent record fresh with form figures of 21151 off the back of a 100-day break or more, and he won this race in 2019 when fresh off a 1lbs lower handicap mark.

His excellent second at Ascot on return last year sets the standard in this contest, and that run came on his first start after a wind surgery, and he has the same scenario today. His best form is right-handed, and he gets the vote to score again.

Getalead - (3.20 Wincanton, 2pts each-way - 9/1) (NAP)

I am very much hoping that GETALEAD is a handicap good thing here and that the market has completely missed it, which seems to be the case at the time of writing. This horse has kept very warm company in eight starts under rules and started his career in bumpers.

He bumped into Grand Roi (6th) on debut before being thrown into a Listed bumper at Cheltenham, where he finished 8th and ahead of today's rival Shinobi before bumping into (5th) Third Time Lucki at Huntingdon. After a break, he ran in a bumper at Perth and was beaten a head (came with a strong challenge) by the 125 rated Restandbethanful over 2m. Since then, he has run in two Novice Hurdles and a Maiden Hurdle - two on soft ground which wouldn't have suited and one of those where he had no chance against Bear Ghylls in a hot Novice at Lingfield (9th) that has worked out extremely well.

He then he bumped into Bravemansgame at Exeter, for which he was given a very easy time of things in the closing stages. On that Exeter run, its highly likely he would have beaten Runswick Bay (118) and Dal Horrisgale (127) if pushed out firmly. The sixth from that race came out to run My Drogo close at Newbury next time and is rated 115, while the seventh is rated 102. His latest run was his handicap debut, in which he was beaten at Ludlow by 16 lengths by a subsequent winner in Sea The Sea.

He did remarkably well given how keen he was, and his race position at the rear of the field, and he shaped like a very well handicapped horse. Today's race is a 0-115 and far easier on paper, but he now steps up to a more suitable trip, and David Prichard is able to claim 5lbs off of his opening handicap mark of 107. On the balance of his form, he must go close in this contest!
