Richard Birch focuses on proven mudlarks for his Taunton Placepot
Horses with a marked preference for testing ground will form the basis of my Taunton Placepot.
Volkovka’s experience in leg two (1.05) could prove a useful asset, and this month’s Market Rasen winner seems sure to give punters a big shout.
Broken Quest landed some nice bets in fluent fashion on his return from a long absence at Ludlow, and ought to prove hard to beat in leg three (1.35) under ace conditional Kevin Brogan if in the same mood.
Flowing Cadenza, whose 2019-20 season ended rather tamely, would go close if recapturing her best form, which included a heavy ground Ascot win over Mister Murchan 12 months ago.
Broadclyst and Robin Of Sherwood are the pair to concentrate on in leg four (2.05), while Talking About You is preferred to likely favourite Perfect Myth in leg five (2.40) on account of her proven effectiveness on a soft surface.
Kiwi Myth looks the business in the final leg (3.15), with Harry Cobden a significant booking.
