- Lay Dashing Oscar 14:00 Taunton @ 3.185/40
- Back Thello 14:50 Newcastle @ 4.3100/30
- Back each way Minellacelebration 15:30 Taunton @ 8.615/2

Plenty arrive with chances in the 14:00 at Taunton, a novice hurdle being run over 2m3f. Dashing Oscar has been installed as favourite in his bid to land a hat trick of victories this season, however the Harry Fry-trained novice has been friendless in the market all morning, drifting from 2.486/4 out to his current trading price of 3.185/40. This may be due to the fact that he's had a hard race already this month when just scrambling home by a neck in a similar contest ran at Sandown over 2m. In what looks a competitive race today and with plenty of the top yards represented we'd be hopeful of getting Dashing Oscar beaten and recommend laying him at his current price of 3.185/40.

For our back bet we're heading for the fibre sand at Newcastle and their 1m2f apprentice handicap being run at 14:50. Thello, trained by Gary Moss is a recent course and distance winner at the northern track when he landed the spoils here a fortnight ago. He won that race rather comfortably when being eased up close home. The four-year-old is only up 4lb for that effort and with improvement likely we reckon he should take all the beating and recommend taking the 4.3100/30 available now having been backed at a high of 6.411/2 earlier this morning.

The2m7f handicap chase at Taunton run at 15:30 today is where we turn our attention to for our each-way play of the day. Minellacelebration is a three time winner over hurdles for Katy Price and already looks as though he has improved again since switching to fences earlier this year when landing a decent novice chase at Aintree back in October. His form figures around Taunton read 221 from three visits to the track and we hope he can keep this good run of form going and recommend backing him each-way at 8.615/2 which is in from 12.5 this morning.
