Taunton – 27th October: DOM’S NAP + NB | Wednesday’s 2 Best Bets

Our team’s best two bets for the action at Taunton on Wednesday afternoon



Taunton Racecourse
Taunton’s NAP: HONNEUR D’AJONC | 1:55pm Racing To School Novices’ Hurdle | Dom’s Pick
888 Promotion

The son of Diamond Boy chased home the unbeaten Grade 1 winner Monmiral at Exeter on debut last season before holding every chance before crashing two out at Kempton Park thereafter.

Monmiral, who won a Grade 1 at the Grand National Festival, beat Honneur D’ajonc by five lengths at Exeter last November

He disappointed on his next two starts but bounced back to form at Hereford earlier this month and is now back down at two miles.

Paul Nicholls’s Time To Tinker is currently the favourite and won at this course last season but must give the selection 1lb with Chester Williams claiming further weight off Jane Williams’s gelding, so he looks worth taking on at the prices.

NB: PRESENTING YEATS | 1:20pm Cornish Rock Gin Handicap

Chasing a hat-trick, the five-year-old from Milton Harris’s Wiltshire yard shouldn’t be deterred by a further 3lb hit from the handicapper, with his Warwick win in September franked at Bangor yesterday.

This career-high mark clearly demands more but he’s in the form of his life and Paddy Brennan partners him once again in the saddle, having steered him to victory the last twice.

Valentino remains very unexposed and must enter calculations with a top conditional jocked up.
