14:30 Taunton Handicap Hurdle Horse Racing Tip

Race Type: Class 3 handicap hurdle
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 6
Distance: 2m 1/2f

Race Preview

SEA THE SEA is expected to be a big player in handicap hurdle action at Taunton. She is in search of a hat-trick after coming good the last twice at Ludlow and Wincanton.

Sea The Sea is a good front runner and has been posting some quick times as well. There has been a 9lb rise for her, but she retains her 7lb claimer Peter Kavanagh and is still likely to be in the frame.

PILLAR OF STEEL is another excellent one, and she has won five of her last six runs. It has been a massive 2021 for her and comes up 5lb.

The latest of those wins was 11 days ago at Stratford and Pillar Of Steel remains in red hot form.

There was a hint that the handicapper had finally caught up with MANOR PARK on his latest. He was third at Plumpton last month.

But he is capable and Manor Park had a cracking summer winning three times.


Ones to watch: See The Sea 15/8, Glory And Honour 4/1

Race Type: Class 5 handicap hurdle
Age: 3-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 13
Distance: 2m 1/2

MI LADDO is interesting for this one who got off the mark earlier this season with a winning course and distance effort.

He was last seen three weeks ago staying on well for a fourth-place finish at Exeter, clearly not suited by a slower gallop there.

RATHNURE RANGER has won two of three runs this year, including his latest which was right off the back of a long break.

This is a tougher effort but could be competitive on current form.

POET’S REFLECTION can’t be counted out of this one after she collected a good second at Newton Abbot on her latest run, which was in May.

She’s well-rested and can perform fresh and rates as a big danger.

Another to keep an eye on in this big field is GERARD MENTOR who has been starting to put things together over the hurdles.

The assessor remains lenient with him and it’s been back to back second-place finishes from him so has the form to contend.


Ones to watch: Rathnure Ranger 6/1, Mi Laddo 10/3

There are few with strong claims for this Nottingham handicap on Wednesday which should prove to be a good fixture.

DREAMS UNWIND missed out on a hattrick on her latest. She was over course and distance a month ago, taking a sixth-place finish.

Dreams Unwind did go well in the race, which was only four days after having won powerfully at Ripon.

It’s three wins in this campaign for Dreams Unwind and she has more in her.

MIDRAAR is another that has had a good year. She was on top of her game in the summer, taking a couple of wins at Wolverhampton.

Midraar was third on her latest, getting a bit of form back after a bit of a shocker at Newmarket on her penultimate. The cheekpieces go on for the first time.

BURIRAM has been consistent and looks to get off the mark for the first time this season.

He was only narrowly touched off at York on his last, finishing ahead of Midraar in that one. Another strong effort should be coming from Buriram.


Ones to watch: Buriram 7/2, Midraar 7/2

Race Type: Class 3 handicap
Age: 2-year-olds plus
Declared Runners: 14
Distance: 5f

Race Preview

RAASEL rates as a big contender in this one after completing a hattrick two weeks ago. That was at course and distance as well.

So Raasel is simply thriving at the moment for Michael Appleby and the handicapper has only given him a lenient 3lb extra to work with.

There is plenty of positive course form for WRENTHORPE ahead of this one. He has claimed four previous course and distance victories.

There Was a second-place finish for Wrenthorpe two weeks ago in another course and distance attempt behind Raasel.

Because of that miss, he’s been eased 2lb compared to that rival and has a chance.

REBEL AT DAWN will fill out the shortlist for this one. He takes the drop back to the 5f trip after a decent fifth-place finish in a big field at Haydock two weeks ago. This is easier and the former C&D winner could be in it.

Tip: RAASEL 2/1

Ones to watch: Rebel At Dawn 8/1, Wrenthorpe 8/1

Race Type: Class 3 handicap
Age: 3 year olds only
Declared Runners: 7
Distance: 1m 4f

Race Preview

CANDLEFORD could prove the one to beat at Kempton in handicap action. He steps onto the Polytrack for the first time.

After having taken a third-place finish at Newmarket on his latest. Candleford was the best of those ridden with intent there in what was a strong handicap.

BANDINELLI can’t be written off either as he comes up just 3lb for his latest win. That was at Haydock a month ago.

The success completed a double for him and it pushed Bandinelli on to three wins from five efforts this year. He should be heavily involved.

MARSHALL PLAN had a day to forget three weeks ago at Newmarket. He was clearly off his game in that one.

But he could be chanced to bounce back in some calmer waters on Wednesday.


Ones to watch: Marshall Plan 6/1, Bandinelli 4/1

Race Preview

This is a wide-open race and stepping into her handicap debut, HANG UP could have something to offer.

There have been a couple of decent runs from her this season at Sandown and Wolverhampton and may pose a threat on her handicap debut.

A LEGACY goes off a similar profile, with just three previous racetrack appearances.

She is still a maiden but has been running with credit in a couple of efforts in defeat as a 3-year-old.

The other to keep on the side for the contest is VICTORY STAR who is in good shape at the moment.

There was a victory for him at Beverley last month and the form from that one has been franked as well.

Tip: A LEGACY 5/1

Ones to watch: Victory Star 9/2, Hang Up 7/1
