Oddschecker tips for every race at Taunton on Thursday.
This is a good opportunity for WAJAAHA to add another victory over hurdles to his name. His latest effort in this sphere saw him win easily in a similar contest at Plumpton and a reproduction of that performance will make him tough to beat. His main rival may be Poseidon, who lost his way over fences but it shouldn't be long before Gordon Elliott gets him back on track. True Romance and City Derby look most likely to chase the Irish duo home.Prediction : 1st Wajaaha 2nd Poseidon 3rd True Romance
Baliyad is likely to prove popular after finishing second in a claimer at Ludlow eight days ago and he is 2lb well in here. However, a chance is taken on the winning point-to-pointer YA KNOW YASEFF, who makes her handicap debut off what could prove a lenient rating. The Fergal O'Brien-trained Just Deegeeteebee is another to consider off a basement mark and may have more to offer at this level. Prediction : 1st Ya Know Yaseff 2nd Baliyad 3rd Just Deegeeteebee
Rubaud comprehensively justified market support over C&D last month and is likely to prove a warm order once more. That said, the Paul Nicholls-trained gelding does have a 7lb penalty to shoulder now. Useful Flat-recruit BRENTFORD HOPE may have learned enough from his runner-up effort at Ludlow to enter the winner's enclosure today. Invincible De Mee makes both his stable and hurdling debut after some fair bumper efforts in France and may fare best of the remaining opposition.Prediction : 1st Brentford Hope 2nd Rubaud 3rd Invincible De Mee
ZACONY REBEL has done well since switching to fences and the step back up in trip could help him as he looks to make it two wins from three starts. Huelgoat has a tremendous record over the larger obstacles, despite an uninspiring effort here last time out, and he is likely to be thereabouts, along with Midnight Midge, who returned from a long absence to score over C&D last month. Prediction : 1st Zacony Rebel 2nd Huelgoat 3rd Midnight Midge
HYLAND earned plenty of experience as a novice and he scored a comfortable success when last seen at Uttoxeter in May. A 4lb rise on his return may not be enough to stop him, and he is narrowly preferred to Ilanz, who was a taking winner at Market Rasen last week. On To Victory brings solid form to the table and cannot be ruled out either. Prediction : 1st Hyland 2nd Ilanz 3rd On To Victory
LAZY SUNDAY shaped with promise on her first attempt over fences at Worcester in October before falling at the first when dropped in trip here last time. She had been sent off favourite on that occasion and is likely to have more to offer over the larger obstacles. Dan's Chosen may benefit from a sharper track having not to run up to his best at Exeter on his latest start, while others to consider include Airtothethrone and Ho Que Oui.Prediction : 1st Lazy Sunday 2nd Dans Chosen 3rd Airtothethrone
BRAGANZA BAY justified market support when scoring at Hereford on his most recent start and a 5lb rise may not be enough to stop him from progressing. Caspers Court has been in consistent form in recent months and another solid run can be expected, with the handicapper having dropped him 1lb, while Dannystory has to be of interest on his handicap debut.Prediction : 1st Braganza Bay 2nd Caspers Court 3rd Dannystory
