Go west young man! So it’s Taunton for tomorrows Lucky 15.
Taunton 1.05 ALL KINGS 3/1 general
Taunton 2.10 TROIKA STEPPES 13/2 general
Taunton 2.40 RESOLUTION BAY 9/2 Betfred and Coral and being supported
Taunton 3.40 MAGNUS ROMEO 15/2 PP and WH
and here’s why…
Taunton 1.05 ALL KINGS We’ll take on the Paul Nicholls jolly with Harry Fry’s late developer. The second to Vieux Lille in April suggests he can jump a hurdle and stay three miles which more than you can say for most of these.
Taunton 2.10 TROIKA STEPPES Didn’t take to the National fences last time out in the Grand Sefton at Aintree but had been progressive up to then and Fergal O’Brien’s 9yo gets on well with Conor Shoemark. Impressive front running winner at Cheltenham in October.
Taunton 2.40 RESOLUTION BAY Sent handicapping at an early stage by master trainer Philip Hobbs suggests that Diana Whateleys 5yo son of Presenting may be on a “workable” mark. Hopefully the extra half mile and some slicker hurdling could see him back in the winner’s enclosure.
Taunton 3.40 MAGNUS ROMEO I am warming to Johnny Farrelly as a trainer, he’s starting to attract some bigger owners to his progressive but secretive yard. Magnus Romeo has some solid placed form and looks value to get his head in front in this lowly Class 5 event
Sort of OK yesterday. The last one would have got us out of a hole!
