Will Maries Rock get a win?

Nico de Boinville will be the saddle for Nicky Henderson as they look to guide Maries Rock to success at Taunton. Maries Rock is perfectly suited to the distance and has claimed a win at the 2m mark over the hurdles and in a NH flat. She will head to Taunton on the back of a success at Haydock in early December. So the four year old has the form on her side with back to back wins. There will be some stiff challengers in this one however, but she lines up as the 2/1 favourite* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 29th, 2019 at 7:50 pm).

Silver Forever and Deja Vue are big contenders

Paul Nicholls has Silver Forever as a hopeful in this one at 9/4* (betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 29th, 2019 at 7:50 pm). This is a good horse who has won two of her last three outings. The five year old has won a couple of times over the hurdles at of least 2m. In her last run she was out at Newbury at the 2m distance where she took a third place finish from a mark of 9/4. That saw her miss the chance at three straight victories. But with wins at Ascot, Chepstow and Newbury in the calendar year, she is expected to be well in the mixer for this one.

As is Deju Vue who brings some solid form to the table. Back to back wins at Ffos Las in November and December puts her in very good standing here and she should handle herself well in this competitive field. Deju Vue delivered her most recent win from 11/8 favourite on some heavy ground. She has a slight advantage over the others in the handicap and can provide a challenge from 7/2*(betting odds taken from Boylesports on December 29th, 2019 at 7:50 pm) as she will try and handle richer company.

Can Midnight Gift surprise?

Where the likes of Deja Vue is taking a step in quality of opposition, Midnight Gift has won at this level, collecting a success at Aintree at the start of December. There was a little luck there with the race leader falling at the last. But the win puts Midnight Gift on a hat trick however and has shown that she can live in decent company. At a punter-friendly quote of 11/2 there should be some appeal on this outsider*(betting odds taken from Boylesporst on December 29th, 2019 at 7:50 pm)
