  • Meatloaf (9/4) – bet365
    A return to his best form could see him dominate this field.
  • Recoup (10/3) – BetVictor
    Promising start to hurdling career, one to watch if he continues to progress.
  • Roger Pol (11/4) – Unibet
    Strong form last season, could bounce back from last outing.
  • Walks Like The Man (13/2) – bet365
    Has shown ability in novices and could be a dark horse here.
  • Backinaction (50/1) – BetVictor
    A longshot with a lot to prove in this company.
  • Ballyfinn (10/1) – Unibet
    Needs to improve significantly to feature today.
  • Dan’s Chosen (8/1) – bet365
    Returns to hurdling with questions to answer about his adaptability.
  • Dasher (10/1) – BetVictor
    Mixed results in bumpers; hurdles form needs to improve.
  • Inspector Maigret (100/1) – Unibet
    Very little to recommend on the basis of previous outings.
  • Talap (100/1) – bet365
    Transition to hurdling has not gone smoothly; another tough ask.
  • Telenn d’Annain (100/1) – BetVictor
    Showed nothing so far to suggest a threat in this race.
  • Silver Chord (100/1) – Unibet
    Would be a huge surprise if involved at the finish.
  • Sindri (100/1) – bet365
    Not shown enough in any form to be considered here.

Verdict

In a field that offers some depth, Roger Pol appears primed for a major effort after an uncharacteristic last run. With Recoup and Meatloaf likely pushing him close, the race should be highly competitive, but Roger Pol could find the required improvement to take the win at Taunton this afternoon.

  • Sailing Grace (6/1) – bet365
    Solid performance last time out; could be a contender with ground to her liking.
  • Faha Belle (12/1) – BetVictor
    Showed potential last time; weight relief from the claimer could be significant.
  • Jersey Gem (6/1) – Unibet
    Still unexposed in handicaps; today might reveal true potential.
  • Spitfire Girl (12/1) – bet365
    Consistent and handles various conditions; one for the shortlist.
  • Malina Jamila (16/1) – BetVictor
    Inconsistent but capable on her day; watch for market signals.
  • Little Talks (14/1) – Unibet
    Needs to improve from recent outings but not without hope.
  • Lyla Garrity (10/1) – bet365
    Disappointing last time but capable of better; interesting if bouncing back.
  • Hazy Dream (9/2) – BetVictor
    Recent winner over course and distance; leading contender despite weight rise.
  • Danzini (10/1) – Unibet
    Has shown some spark; could be competitive at a price.
  • Sunshine Girl (50/1) – bet365
    Longshot with a lot to prove; previous form leaves her outclassed.
  • Summerleaze (25/1) – BetVictor
    Outsider who could improve over the longer trip; watch for any market interest.
  • Step It Out Goldie (7/1) – Unibet
    Interesting at a longer trip; could surprise if taking to the hurdles better.
  • Baby Sham (16/1) – bet365
    Has slipped to a competitive mark; could factor with a return to form.
  • Joyful Kit (10/1) – BetVictor
    Often places but struggles to win; consider for exotics.
  • Harkangel (20/1) – Unibet
    Hard to recommend based on recent form; others preferred.

Verdict

Hazy Dream looks primed to follow up on her recent win with conditions to suit and a strong performance last out. Sailing Grace and Spitfire Girl also bring compelling form into this race and should not be overlooked. The value might lie with Spitfire Girl, who could return to form and has proven capabilities at this course and distance.

  • Bbold (8/1) – bet365
    Consistently in the mix; could be competitive again with a slight improvement.
  • Grove Road (13/2) – Unibet
    Recent efforts suggest more is needed; however, a return to best form would see him involved.
  • Airtothethrone (11/4) – bet365
    Strong course form; one of the main contenders if bouncing back from the last outing.
  • Head And Heart (14/1) – BetVictor
    Struggled recently but could surprise if returning to earlier form; watch market closely.
  • Unblinking (12/1) – Unibet
    C&D form makes him a tempting outsider; could make an impact if conditions suit.
  • Jessie Lightfoot (7/2) – bet365
    Consistently running well this season; a leading contender today.
  • Flemen’s Tipple (7/1) – BetVictor
    Yet to win over fences; might find a few too strong again but has place possibilities.
  • Kingsmill Gin (17/2) – Unibet
    Mixed results lately; potential for a better showing under less demanding conditions.
  • Shortcross Storm (13/2) – bet365
    Recent form is a mixed bag but capable on his day; watch for any positive market moves.

Verdict

Airtothethrone could be the one to beat here, given his affinity for this track and distance. The horse is well-suited to these conditions and his previous performances here suggest he’s capable of winning this. Jessie Lightfoot also enters calculations based on consistent recent efforts and should be right there at the finish. For those looking for value, Unblinking could be worth considering at longer odds, especially given his track record over course and distance.

  • Behind The Curtain (20/1) – BetVictor
    A surprise package last time but needs to confirm that performance under similar conditions.
  • Bertie Wooster (10/1) – bet365
    Consistent performer just shy of a win; could find the extra push here.
  • Stanley Pincombe (11/2) – Unibet
    Continues to knock at the door; deserves attention for consistent efforts.
  • Mikhailovich (10/1) – BetVictor
    Good ground could bring out his best; one to watch at appealing odds.
  • Despereaux (14/1) – bet365
    Potential to improve on a more suitable surface; interesting with new gear.
  • Bella Civena (13/2) – Unibet
    Could improve from her previous runs; keep an eye on market moves.
  • Samazul (10/3) – BetVictor
    If he recovers his best form post-surgery, he’s a leading contender.
  • Swift Hawk (5/2) – bet365
    The one to beat based on last C&D win; top choice if he handles conditions.
  • Lifetime Legend (10/1) – Unibet
    Returning to form and could be an under-the-radar threat at a value price.
  • Beau Haze (50/1) – BetVictor
    Long odds reflect his outside chance; would need a lot to go right.

Verdict

Swift Hawk stands out as the favorite with proven ability under these conditions. His recent form and affinity for the course make him a strong pick. For those looking at potential value, Despereaux offers intrigue with the switch to better ground and could spring a surprise at longer odds. Stanley Pincombe also deserves attention for his consistent place finishes and could finally break through.

  • Imperial Joe (5/1) – bet365
    Has shown good stamina and is reliable over this distance, making him a solid choice if he can cope with the weight.
  • American Gerry (6/1) – BetVictor
    Inconsistent recently but could bounce back to form; watch for any positive market moves.
  • Stopherandgo (10/1) – Unibet
    Mixed results lately but has potential if he can settle and find his rhythm early in the race.
  • Twoconduit (7/1) – bet365
    Not quite there in recent outings but could be a surprise package with a return to form.

    Struggling for form and hard to back with any confidence at this stage.

    A return to a favoured course could see him challenging; one for the shortlist.
  • Royal Sam (5/1) – BetVictor
    If he can translate his hurdle form over fences, he could be in with a chance.
  • Doctor Foley (9/1) – Unibet
    Has shown some ability but needs to improve to contend here.
  • I Love You Sivola (7/1) – bet365
    Needs to convert placed efforts into a win; today could provide that opportunity.
  • Prince Cleni (10/1) – BetVictor
    Hasn’t shown enough recently to suggest a win is imminent.
  • Elpologreg (20/1) – Unibet
    Would be a surprise winner; current form does not inspire confidenc

Verdict

Hard Frost appears well-placed to regain form at a track he likes, making him the top selection in a fairly open race. Imperial Joe and Royal Sam also merit consideration based on their consistency and potential under these conditions. American Gerry and I Love You Sivola offer value as outsiders with the ability to upset if they find their best form.

  • John Betjeman (8/1) – bet365
    His recent efforts suggest a podium finish could be within reach, especially with favourable conditions.
  • Winterwatch (6/1) – BetVictor
    Close calls in previous outings make him a contender; a slight tweak in strategy could see him break through.
  • Gerard Mentor (10/1) – Unibet
    Returning from a break with a reputation for unpredictability; could surprise if at his best.
  • Pak Army (7/1) – bet365
    His track record is mixed, but on his day, he’s proven he can mix it with the best.
  • Phoenix Risen (9/1) – BetVictor
    A course and distance winner; must improve on recent form but is well acquainted with the track.
  • Eagle Of The Glen (33/1) – Unibet
    A longshot indeed, recent form does little to inspire confidence.
  • Ruler Legend (7/1) – bet365
    A win here could depend on his ability to handle the track conditions better than in recent races.
  • Earth Cry (8/1) – BetVictor
    Capable on his day and not without hope; watch the market for clues.
  • Always Force It (25/1) – Unibet
    Faces a tough ask; previous performances suggest he’s up against it.
  • Knot On Time (25/1) – bet365
    Hasn’t shown enough recently to be considered a serious threat.
  • Jolyjump (7/1) – BetVictor
    Intriguing at lower weights; could be a dark horse if conditions suit.
  • Taritino (10/1) – Unibet
    An unexposed type who might find this setup to his liking.
  • Universal Secret (14/1) – bet365
    Needs to rediscover form but remains a speculative choice at best.
  • Glorious Lion (5/1) – BetVictor
    The one to beat; has shown promise on various grounds and could adapt well here.
  • Eventful (20/1) – Unibet
    Out of form and would need a significant turnaround to challenge.
  • Rock On Tommy (14/1) – bet365
    Not dismissed lightly, although recent efforts leave much to be desired.

Verdict

Glorious Lion looks set to capitalize on favourable conditions and his promising flat form. Winterwatch and John Betjeman are expected to provide strong competition, with Phoenix Risen and Ruler Legend also in the mix for those looking for value.
