365365171 Jay Jay Reilly
Gradual progress in bumpers last term and struck at second attempt over hurdles when making all in 2m Kempton novice (2m, good to soft). Further progress likely and he's the one to beat.
locked473-21A
11-5Bridget AndrewsDan Skeltonlocked1.88/11.5/120
365365193 Earth Company
Made the frame on 2 of his 3 starts in bumpers last season and positive start over hurdles after wind op when third to the potentially smart Knappers Hill at Wincanton (15.2f). Open to improvement.
locked420-3B
10-12Sean HoulihanPhilip Hobbslocked2.25/13/133
365365194 Gala De Corton
Bettered low-key hurdles debut when chasing home exciting stablemate Knappers Hill at Wincanton, with Earth Company hot on his heels in third. More needed in order to go one better here.
locked306-42
10-12Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked3.33/13.33/10
365365256 Brilliant Present
Winner of an all-weather bumper last winter and Warwick hurdles debut in May wasn't devoid of promise. However, she failed to build on that when returning to action at Huntingdon last month.
locked61-56
10-5Nico de BoinvilleNicky Hendersonlocked7.5/15/133
365365182 Key To The Moon
Left bumper exploits well behind when making a winning hurdles debut at Ludlow (2m, good). Perhaps the slow ground was against him at Ffos Las next time, but looks vulnerable here all the same.
locked0-516
11-5Sam Twiston-DaviesNigel locked9/114/156
365365157 My Keepsake
Fair form in bumpers, but she hasn't made much of an impact in a couple of mares' novice hurdles and yard saddles a far stronger candidate in Earth Company.

DSLR HORSE WGT JOCKEY TRAINER XP 1ST LT -% %
365365195 Nelsons Rock
Dual point winner who delivered easily his most encouraging effort under Rules when fourth in a novice hurdle at Wincanton last time. Could be thrown in off 96 switched to handicaps/upped in trip.
locked11/54P4
10-7Harry KimberColin Tizzardlocked2.25/11/156
365365322 Famoso
Placed a couple of times in maiden hurdles last season and, while disappointing at Wincanton (after a breathing operation) on handicap/seasonal debut, he's probably worth another chance.
locked48032-7
11-7Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked2.5/16/1140
3653651331 Just A Whim
Improved display when running out an easy winner of a Uttoxeter maiden (23.3f) in July. However, that race fell apart and unable to follow up under a penalty at Worcester latest. Returns to handicaps.
locked842-515A

3653652293 Young O'Leary
Placed in points and built on hurdling promise to make winning chasing debut here in March. Followed it with a poor run and hasn't been seen since April, but still relatively unexposed for new yard.

365365364 Fantomas
Fair in bumpers and shaped better than first time up over hurdles when third in a novice at Worcester on reappearance. Has gone backwards from that, however.

365365286 Aeronisi
Yet to show anything in novice/maiden hurdles and, while bred to do better, the handicapper has taken no chances with his opening mark.

Race 3 Taunton 13:55 Handicap Chase (Class 4) 23f

DSLR HORSE WGT JOCKEY TRAINER XP 1ST LT -% %
365365363 Roque It
Bumper winner for Olly Murphy. Fair form over hurdles for this stable (good third in handicap at Worcester last time), and likely to be well schooled ahead of this chasing debut.
locked26P4-23A
11-7Harry CobdenPaul Nichollslocked1.88/12/16
365365145 Catch The Cuban
Hit and miss profile overall but he has been holding his form of late and gained reward with victory at this course a fortnight ago. Up 4 lb and chance can't be ignored in a weak race.
locked352321B
10-8Harry KimberColin Tizzardlocked2.25/13.33/148
365365144 Caspers Court
Landed a gamble over hurdles on return at Exeter last term and has shown enough in this sphere to think he can win races when it all clicks. Merits respect.

365365192 Eragon De Chanay
Five-time winner over hurdles and, though he has a rather uninspiring record as a chaser, he's on an appealing mark now and his latest effort contained more encouragement.

3653651751 Landsman
Shaped well at Ludlow in May but failed to back it up next time, underlining that he's not one to rely on. Back from 175 days off, and others make more appeal.

Stepped up markedly on reappearance run when gaining breakthrough win at Exeter last month. Just edged out in the dying strides from 5 lb higher at Warwick last week and seems sure to go well again.

365365473 Dargiannini
Impressive Sedgefield bumper winner who landed the odds in back-to-back novice hurdles at that course in March. Pulled up in Silver Trophy at Chepstow on yard/handicap bow but retains potential.

365365146 Molliana
Likeable mare who brought up the 4-timer over hurdles in 10-runner handicap over C&D 2 weeks ago, doing well to get there late after starting her effort with just 1 behind. Will continue to run well.

365365127 Mister Allegro
Modest on the level but made a fine start over hurdles, scoring at Ludlow and Wincanton. Found out in better company at Cheltenham but now switches to handicaps with a handy weight-for-age allowance.

365365204 Opening Bid
Newton Abbot novice winner in the spring who doubled his tally with victory in 2m Warwick handicap 20 days ago, staying on well. This is tougher but he's still lightly raced, so should go well again.
