Wincanton Racecourse

Wincanton Racecourse is raight handed national hunt course that is based in the small town of Wincanton in Somerset. The course has several top class stables nearby and has therefore seen many of the United Kingdoms top hurdlers and chasers.

The season at Wincanton runs from October to May each year and races to watch are the Kingwell Hurdle and the CGA Chase which are held on the Festive Trials day in February. These two races are seen as trails for the Champion Hurdle and the Cheltenham Gold Cup. Another notable race is the Rising Stars Novices' Chase which is a grade 2 race.

With the course being so close to the stables of trainer Paul Nicholls you will not be surprised to learn that he has been the top trainer at this course over several seasons. Another trainer that does well at this course is another Somerset trainer, Phillip Hobbs. The top two jockeys here are Richard Johnson and Sam Thomas.
