Timeform provide the three best bets at Wincanton on Monday…
“…looks on a decent mark now handicapping for the first time in this sphere…”
Timeform on Sashenka
Prince Llywelyn – 13:30 Wincanton
Prince Llywelyn has looked a shadow of the horse he was in bumpers since sent jumping, but he ran well in first-time cheekpieces back in this sphere at Exeter last time in what was a fairly competitive race for the grade, and a reproduction of that form may well be good enough to see him come out on top here.
Sashenka – 15:00 Wincanton
Sashenka was fairly useful on the Flat and has made an encouraging start over hurdles, looking set to win comfortably (four lengths up and yet to be asked for an effort) when falling at the second-last at Catterick earlier this month, and looks on a decent mark now handicapping for the first time in this sphere.
Ballybough Nora – 15:30 Wincanton
A first taste of success over fences beckons for Ballybough Nora, who has largely acquitted herself well since switched to this sphere and emerged with credit when fifth in the Devon National at Exeter last time. Dropping back in trip here will be in her favour and she’s now 1 lb below her winning hurdles mark.
