Race 1 Taunton 13:55 Novices/Maiden Hurdle (Class 4) 19f

365365656 Just In Time
Multiple winner on Flat (at up to 14.5f) in 2017/18. Largely below form in that sphere in 2020 and ran to just a fair level on his belated hurdling bow at Newbury, but has some potential to improve.
11-3Tom CannonAlan Kinglocked2/10
3653652112 Time To Tinker
Left hurdles debut effort behind when second over C&D in December. Not disgraced in a jumpers bumper subsequently and open to further improvement as a hurdler.
11-3Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked2/10
365365975 Grandads Cottage
£200,000 Irish point winner who went close on second start under Rules in a Stratford bumper. Stepped up on hurdle debut form when fifth in Doncaster novice (20.8f) 97 days ago and may progress again.
11-3Aidan ColemanOlly Murphylocked5/10
3653653011 The Hoax
Well held only start in bumpers but showed ability on hurdling debut 10 months on at this course. Never better than mid-field in a jumpers bumper last time, but remains with potential as a hurdler.
11-3 Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked5/10
365365211 Young Lieutenant
Bumper winner who opened hurdles account after a wind op in Sedgefield novice in September. Well below par in Cheltenham handicap but got back to winning ways 4 months on in Kempton jumpers bumper.
11-9Caoilin QuinnWarren Greatrexlocked11/20
365365549 Montys Medoc
Improved on hurdling debut form when tenth of 14 in maiden (66/1) at Chepstow (19.4f, good to soft) 54 days ago, despite not being given a hard race. Remains with potential.
11-3Lorcan WilliamsPaul Nichollslocked25/10
365365132 Alfoski
Little impact in bumper/over hurdles.

Race 2 Taunton 15:40 Handicap Hurdle (Class 5) 19f

365365915 Auenwirbel
Modest hurdler who after 13 months off, took advantage of a drop in the weights to score readily over C&D 9 days ago. Should strip fitter for that and may be well treated under a penalty.
11-17exMitchell BastyanLaura Younglocked5/10
3653659512 Nocte Volatus
Yet to get his head in front but has hinted at promise, plugging on for fourth of 11 in handicap at Ffos Las (2½m, heavy) in November. He's unexposed and should give a good account.
11-4Richard JohnsonTom Laceylocked7/10
365365179 Blazing Saddles
Modest hurdler who stepped up plenty on his reappearance run when fourth at Wincanton early this year. Unable to make any impact in a jumpers bumper since so worth monitoring back over timber.
11-7Matt GriffithsJeremy Scottlocked7/10
3653655010 Manor Park
Winner at Market Rasen in November and wasted no time getting back to form when fourth of 11 in handicap hurdle at Plumpton (15.9f, soft) 50 days ago. Each-way claims.
11-7Archie BellamyBrian Barrlocked8/10
365365105 Aronius
Ex-German 10f Flat winner who surpassed previous hurdling exploits when geting off the mark at Southwell 10 days ago, responding well under a strong ride. Respected under a penalty back up in trip.
11-97ex Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked11/40
365365406 Tactical Manoeuvre
Has 3 C&D wins, the latest last February. Yet to really hit top form this term but his mark is starting to edge back down so can't be ruled out.
11-8Luca MorganJeremy Scottlocked12/10
365365152 Arcade Attraction
Landed a gamble over fences at Ffos Las on reappearance and might have needed the run in a first-time tongue strap after 3 months off when sixth at Hereford 15 days ago. Mark continues to tumble.
11-11Adam WedgeEvan Williamslocked12/10
365365403 Russian Service
Back to form with a bang when leading towards the finish over C&D last month. Blinkers go on and only nudged up 3 lb so likely to remain competitive.
11-9Kevin BroganSamuel Drinkwaterlocked13/20
365365497 Vanderbilt
Long-standing maiden (0-23) but close up when exiting 2 out here before finding just one too good at Bangor (16.7f, heavy) last time. Solid each-way chance.
11-7Theo GillardMark Gillardlocked14/10
36536569813 Champagne Ideas
Lightly-raced maiden hurdler. Had wind op before excellent third in 19f handicap hurdle at Chepstow but off track 23 months since. Tongue strap on for comeback with his fitness a big worry.

Race 3 Taunton 17:12 NH Flat Race (Class 5) 16f

3653651051 Luttrell Lad
Confirmed debut promise when landing a bumper at Market Rasen in November and could improve further still, so definite player despite his penalty.
11-9Richard JohnsonPhilip Hobbslocked5/20
36536508 Kayf Taoi
€110,000 3-y-o, Kayf Tara gelding. Dam, ran once in bumper, sister to unreliable but fairly useful hurdler/high-class chaser (stayed 27f) Ollie Magern. Interesting newcomer.
11-2Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked5/10
3653651312 American Gerry
€20,000 3-y-o, Americain gelding. Dam unraced half-sister to smart hurdler/very smart chaser (stayed 35f) Shutthefrontdoor. Made frame in Irish points at second attempt last time (Oct 24).
11-2Nathan BrennanChris Gordonlocked7/20
365365409 Mayhem Mya
Unbeaten mare who again had something up her sleeve over C&D last time and is still in receipt of weight from the majority despite her double penalty. Well respected.
10-11Bryan CarverChris Honourlocked7/40
365365815 Deeper Blue
Muhtahir gelding who was runner-up in a bumper at Southwell 81 days ago, faring best of those held up. Likely to step forward from that, so looks a player.
11-2Sean BowenHarry Frylocked9/10
3653652310 Get Sky High
Winner of sole start between the flags in October and encouraging placed efforts both starts under Rules. Should get competitive once more.
10-9 Harry SkeltonDan Skeltonlocked10/10
365365216 Golden Roc
Off mark in Irish points at third attempt last time and some promise to glean from both starts in bumpers. Marked improvement required to land this, however.
11-2Caoilin QuinnWarren Greatrexlocked20/10
365365011 Who's Zoomin Who
€3,000 3-y-o, Shirocco mare. Dam unraced half-sister high-class hurdler/smart chaser (stayed 3m) to Back In Front. Wears hood. Others make more appeal.
10-9Millie WonnacottNeil Kinglocked25/10
36536504 Captain Nemeau
€15,000 3-y-o, Barastraight gelding. Half-brother to 3 winners on Flat, including 10.5f-1½m winner Valyeva. Dam 12.5f-15f winner. Wears tongue strap. One to note if market speaks in his favour.
11-2James BestJack R Barberlocked40/10
365365903 Arctic Poet
Pulled up both starts in bumpers 9 months apart.
11-2Thomas DoggrellBob Bucklerlocked100/10
365365997 Jukebox Junior
Cheap purchase who was last at Hereford on debut in November. Set for another struggle.
