Back Kingfisher Creek @ 1.574/7 in the 14:00 at Taunton
 
Lay Reetaj @ 2.1411/10 in the 15:10 at Southwell 

Back Milosam @ 2.9015/8 in the 16:00 at Taunton

Starting at Taunton' 14:00, a 2m1f Novice Hurdle, for our first back of the day. Kingfisher Creek has come in from 1.855/6 to 1.574/7 and looks the class horse to beat in a field which, admittedly, does contain some interesting horses. Brendan Powell rides for the Colin Tizzard yard. 

Our second back of the day is Milosam in the 16:00 also at Taunton over a near 3m Handicap Chase. The Philip Hobbs-trained eight-year-old has come in from 3.259/4 to 2.9015/8. Milosam is a course specialist, is used to the trip and ground and is often a front runner. With Tom O'Brien on board, we expect him to hold off rivals.

Our lay of the day is Reetaj in the 15:10 Maiden Stakes over one mile at Southwell, after a drift from 1.9010/11 to 2.1411/10. Although he has managed two second places recently, we feel he just lacks the pace over the final half furlong. Ridden by Robert Halvin for the Chapple-Hyam yard the selection may well still start favourite but there is competition from at least two other well-backed rivals, Ians Memory and Street Force, which we expect will tell.
