Nick Shiambouros returns with two selections from Tuesday's meeting at Taunton...

"If he can settle a little better today he should go close"

Back Asum in the 13:45 at Taunton

13:15 Taunton - Zipple Back

Zipple Back is an interesting runner in this maiden hurdle.

This gelding finished third to Lough Derg Spirit at Kempton last month. He held every chance three flights from home, but was found wanting when the pace lifted. The winner has since run creditably in a much better race. I think he has more to offer, and his conditioner appears to have found a good opportunity for him to get off the mark. He is currently trading at 5.04/1 on the exchange.

Volpone Jelois is the favourite at 2.6813/8. This French import finished second in a Juvenile hurdle at Fontwell on his UK debut. He merits respect, but has plenty of miles on the clock for a three-year-old.

13:45 Taunton - Asum

I think Asum can upset the short priced favourite in the second division of this maiden hurdle.

This gelding was a little disappointing when finishing fourth to Midnight Maestro at Warwick on his hurdles debut. He refused to settle, and ultimately paid the price two from home. He had previously shown promise when finishing second in a bumper last season. If he can settle a little better today he should go close.He is trading at 4.3100/30 on the exchange and i have backed him at that price.

Not surprisingly Amour De Nuit is trading at 2.186/5. This talented performer was close to Listed class on the level and represents the mighty Paul Nicholls stable. There is no doubting his ability, but my one concern is that this two mile trip could be a little short for him.
