Dangan Des Champs – 6.30 Taunton (14/1 – bet365)
Philip Hobbs holds an intriguing contender in the Chard Mares’ Handicap Hurdle at Taunton this evening, in the form of Dangan Des Champs.
The six-year-old was first past the post in a point-to-point contest in October but she was eventually disqualified for taking the wrong course.
The mare has since made the step up to rules and she produced an encouraging performance on her last outing at Chepstow, finishing second over 2m3½f.
That was in higher class company and Hobbs’ runner could improve further here over the longer distance of 3m.
At 14/1, Dangan Des Champs could be cracking each-way value for this contest at Taunton.
