Wincanton best bet: Harry Cobden and Earth King to get the better of Sean Bowen's Inflexible in Champion Jockey battle

While the jumps season is coming to an end, there are still some loose ends to be tied up and one of them is Champion Jockey, with the leading pair heading to Wincanton in the hunt for wins.

15:35 Wincanton: Newt Handicap Chase (3 miles 1 furlong)

All attention turns to this handicap chase at Wincanton in the latest instalment of a thrilling battle for the honour of finishing the jumps season as Champion Jockey. 

Sean Bowen and Planet Sport Bet ambassador Harry Cobden come to Wincanton in a last ditch attempt to get wins before the 27th April deadline, with the latter in the driving seat for the prestigous title as he holds a lead of nine wins heading into the final week of the season. 

If you look at the market then Bowen stands the best chance here as he takes the reins of the favourite Inflexible

Tom George's six-year-old has been very consistent in recent runs, with his last five outings yielding top three finishes. 

His last outing at Haydock saw him well beaten by Duke of Deception and the race before that was over this course-and-distance, which saw him finish third but was only three-and-a-half lengths behind the winner, somewhat closer than he was at Haydock.

For those interested in each-way value, Almazhar Garde looks to continue his upward trajectory of form here. 

The nine-year-old has finished second in his last two after a disappointing start to the season and with bookies paying out on three places, he looks tempting at odds of around 14/1. 

However, our selection is Cobden's Earth King, who will be happier with the going being good at Wincanton and has the backing of the Tipstrr camp.

Neil Mulholland's eight-year-old has struggled on heavier ground throughout his career, having been pulled up during his last outing at Fontwell in February. 

He ran a good race at this course on Boxing Day, finishing third albeit over a shorter trip, and he has won previously on good ground at Exeter just over a year ago. 

The booking in Cobden is a great one, as the Planet Sport Bet ambassador has a 23% strike rate this season and will be more determined than ever to grab a win to extend his lead over Bowen in the Champion Jockey race. 

In a battle of the two leading jockeys, we think that Cobden and Earth King will edge it.


Suggested bet: Earth King in the 15:35 at Wincanton
