Race 1 Taunton 13:00 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 16f

86 Baliyad
7-y-o who bagged a Stratford selling handicap in September and has run well in defeat on his last 2 starts (claimer at Ludlow 8 days ago). Should give another good account.
10-9Finn LambertMatt Sheppardlocked3.5/13.33/15
2383 Per Vino Veritas
Modest form over hurdles to date. Disappointing at Exeter when last seen but could make his presence felt if able to bounce back after 7 months off.
11-8Brendan PowellJoe Tizzardlocked4/12.5/138
191 Vazir
Fairly useful 1m4f Flat winner but hasn't yet matched that form over hurdles. Not discredited at Huntingdon on return and now fitted with cheekpieces down in grade.
12-0Tom CannonAlan Kinglocked4/14.5/113
164 Alghazaal
Fairly useful on the Flat and while he's not proven as good over hurdles he has shaped a bit better than the bare result on both outings this season. Not discounted in a weak affair.
11-2Paul O'BrienCharlie Longsdonlocked7.5/110/133
387 Ya Know Yaseff
Successful sole start in Irish points. Yet to achieve much over hurdles but could prove a different proposition now handicapping from a lowly mark.
10-9Philip ArmsonDavid Pipelocked10/122/1120
275 Force De Frap
Fair form over hurdles and fences in France and first signs of encouragement in Britain over at Southwell last month, not settling but showing a bit in front for a fair way. Dropped another 5 lb and back down in trip now.
10-12Harrison BeswickEmma-Jane Bishoplocked14/116/114
179 Just Deegeeteebee
Unplaced in bumpers for Dai Burchell and fared no better so far over hurdles. Tongue tied for handicap debut.
10-5Connor BraceFergal O'Brienlocked14/110/129
3014 Angus De Bull
First run since leaving John O'Shea when last of 13 in handicap hurdle at Hereford last time. Out of the weights and yet to show anything but stable is going well.
10-2 Ben PosteRyan Potterlocked14/166/1371
26910 Modreeney
Fair Irish bumper winner, but little impact in 5 starts over hurdles for current yard. Tongue tied for seasonal debut but hard to make a case for.
10-4Ellis CollierChristian Williamslocked25/16/176
268 Jack The Farmer
Poor hurdler who has been let down by his jumping in recent starts. Unlikely to make an impact.
10-6Thomasina EystonBen Lundlocked28/118/136
5942 Mr Sociable
Modest form at best over hurdles but his profile is far from convincing and he has a 19-month absence to overcome.
11-12Bryan CarverChris Downlocked40/166/165
26011 Alfa Dawn
Fair maiden on Flat for Phillip Makin, but hasn't shown much so far over obstacles. Returns to hurdling after 8 months off.
10-3Sean BowenPeter Bowenlocked40/166/165
4612 Bells Of Rutland
Limited maiden hurdler who is set for another struggle.
10-2Alan JohnsTim Vaughanlocked50/133/134
27313 Christopher Clive
No sign of encouragement for Jeremy Scott and hasn't been seen for 9 months. Hard to make a case for.
10-2David PrichardClaire Harrislocked50/133/134
There are 14 runners in this race.

Race 2 Taunton 13:35 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 16f

281 Rubaud
Useful performer on the Flat in France and improved markedly from his hurdling debut when landing a 7-runner novice over C&D last month. Plenty more to come and should be involved.
11-7Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked1/10.62/138
172 Brentford Hope
Smart Flat winner who was runner-up in a novice at Ludlow on hurdling debut. Open to improvement, and looks to have plenty in favour on less testing ground. Strong claims.
11-0Brendan PowellRichard Hugheslocked1.25/11.38/110
1296 Invincible De Mee
Well-bred sort who showed ability in French bumpers but is likely to have an educational start to hurdling.
11-0Alan JohnsTim Vaughanlocked8/125/1213
197 Let It Shine
Just modest form in a pair of bumpers and no impact in a novice at Huntingdon on first go over hurdles.
11-0 Ben PosteMichael Scudamorelocked20/140/1100
2811 Sassified
Fairly useful on Flat (stays 11f) in Ireland for Johnny Murtagh and shaped as if in need of the run on after 13 months off when sixth in a novice at Market Rasen on hurdling debut. Should improve.
11-0Tom O'BrienPhilip Hobbslocked20/114/130
448 Little Pi
Dunaden gelding who showed limited encouragement whrn down the field in a bumper at Bangor on debut 44 days ago. Others preferred.
11-0Stan SheppardMatt Sheppardlocked66/166/10
2210 Sailed Away
Made frame sole start in point bumper and shaped with some encouragement on Rules debut at Bangor in September. Has left Stuart Edmunds ahead of hurdle debut. Tongue strap on for 1st time.
11-0Philip ArmsonAlexandra Dunnlocked66/150/124
2413 Nous Esperons
Beaten a fair way on sole start for David Pipe in a Wincanton bumper in January and down the field in a novice at Exeter on first go over hurdles.
10-7Ben JonesPhilip Hobbslocked100/1100/10
134 Gun Runner Cash
From a successful jumps family and perfect start when landing a Perth bumper for Gordon Elliott in April. Below that level since, including for new connections, and plenty on second hurdling start.
11-0Thomasina EystonBen Lundlocked100/1150/150
3699 Russies Dream
Little encouragement in a couple of bumpers and off a year prior to this hurdling debut, so hard to make a case for.
11-0Bryan CarverChris Downlocked100/1150/150
2012 The Rain King
Fairly useful on Flat (stays 8.5f), successful at Windsor in May but has been below form since and well held first two starts over hurdles.
11-0Fergus GillardAlexandra Dunnlocked100/180/120
203 Clay
Fairly useful maiden on Flat for Richard Hannon (stays 1¼m) but lost his form in that sphere and stable/hurdling debut in a novice at Chepstow was uninspiring.
11-0Jack QuinlanNeil Kinglocked150/1150/10
145 Instant Gambler
Maiden Irish pointer who was only eighth in a C&D novice on completed start over hurdles. Others preferred.
11-0Adam WedgeAlexandra Dunnlocked150/1250/167
2014 Shee's A Stella
No promise so far in bumpers/over hurdles.
10-7Alexander ThorneDebra Hamerlocked200/1250/125
There are 14 runners in this race.

Race 3 Taunton 15:40 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 24f

234 Braganza Bay
Responded to first-time cheekpieces when taking 9-runner handicap hurdle at Hereford (25.5f, soft) 23 days ago, staying on well. 5 lb rise looks lenient and holds strong follow-up claims.
11-8Tom O'BrienHenry Dalylocked1.38/11/128
241 Caspers Court
Snapped a losing run when narrowly prevailing at Fontwell (21.8f) in June and has continued in form, latest when creditable third of 7 in handicap hurdle (7/2) at Exeter (23.1f, good to soft) 24 days ago. Should give another good account.
12-0Paul O'BrienKayley Woollacottlocked5/13.5/130
212 Killybegs Junior
Made encouraging start for new yard when fourth in handicap hurdle at Carlisle (20f) in October. Disappointing at Wincanton since but remains low mileage and enters calculations.
11-12Jack HoganFergal O'Brienlocked5/15.5/110
217 Alramz
Fell early latest but had made the frame in 3 previous handicaps and is likely to make his presence felt again here.
11-0Lucy GardnerSue Gardnerlocked8/17/113
288 Lord Bill
Form of his 100/1 second at Chepstow in April very much rates a standout amongst an otherwise underwhelming profile. Well held in selling company last time.
10-13Conor RingGrace Harrislocked14/111/121
289 Dannystory
Second on final run in points but no impact in bumper or either hurdle start. Starts handicapping off basement mark at least.
10-13Ben GodfreyHarriet Brownlocked25/133/132
1310 Octavius Sabini
Offered little in a trio of outings to date and remains to be seen if switch to handicapping brings about improvement.
10-3Danny BurtonJoe Pontinglocked28/150/179
2111 Sure Listen
Promise in point but little impact under Rules, finishing well behind on return to action at Wincanton last month.
10-3James BestFiona Shawlocked40/140/10
3012 Galactic Power
Not successful since 2018 and at veteran stage now. Makes limited appeal from 3 lb out of the handicap. Visored for first time.
10-2 Ben PosteHarriet Dickinlocked40/133/118
5413 Menapian
Poor maiden who failed to complete at Newton Abbot last time. 6 lb out of the handicap and easy enough to look elsewhere. Tries first-time blinkers.
10-2Charlie PriceHelen Nelmeslocked50/128/144
6885 Argus
Failed to complete twice in early 2021 and not seen since. Hard to recommend. Tongue strap on for first time in this code.
11-3Adam WedgeAlexandra Dunnlocked66/180/121
243 Wearapinkribbon
Fairly useful ex-Irish winning hurdler but hasn't done much for present connections. Can only be watched for now.
11-11Brendan PowellHelen Nelmeslocked100/140/160
There are 12 runners in this race.
