Paul Nicholls sends a strong team to Taunton on Thursday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Taunton on Thursday...

"...promises to be suited by this big step up in trip on her handicap debut."

Timeform on Mrs Miggins

MRS MIGGINS - 13:35 Taunton

Only 5 lb separates six of the seven runners, but a chance is taken on MRS MIGGINS, who promises to be suited by this big step up in trip on her handicap debut and could prove a different proposition to her two hurdling outings at Exeter to date. The last-time-out winners Farm The Rock and Winter Spice are both respected again, while there is likely more to come from Worthy Farm.

MILITARIAN - 14:05 Taunton

The consistent MILITARIAN continues to run well in these events and is taken to gain a deserved first success despite a 3 lb rise for his effort at Hexham last time. Billy Merriott could be well treated if ready to roll back in a handicap for the in-form Harry Fry. My Charity is interesting also on his chase debut.

COURT ROYALE - 14:40 Taunton

Timeform 'Horse In Focus' COURT ROYALE is one of the least exposed in this line-up and is taken to strike with further progress on the cards. He wasn't given a hard time when a close-up fourth at Hereford last time and is able to race off the same mark here. Jacbequick is respected back in calmer waters, while High Command is a handicap newcomer who may have more to offer.
