Ma Filleule bids to give Henderson more success

NICKY HENDERSON has his string in a rich vein of form, and he has the chance for more success this afternoon at Taunton, with Ma Filleule odds-on favourite for the feature Listed 2m1f mares' novices' hurdle (2.20).

The French import was a close second in a similar race at Newbury last time, and renews rivalries with Call Me A Star who finished third that day. Donald McCain's Doyly Carte is another potential challenger, chasing a hat-trick following victories at Musselburgh and Catterick.

Henderson has another interesting runner in the opening novice hurdle (12.40) as dual Listed winner Electrolyser has his first start over jumps. The seven-year-old was last seen finishing fourth in the Group 3 Qipco British Champions Long Distance Cup on Champions Day at Ascot.

Away from Taunton there is an eight-race on the all-weather at Lingfield.

Lingfield: Standard
Taunton: Heavy
