Taunton punters get bonus seventh race as full house on Thursday


LOCAL punters have a feast of racing action to look forward to at Taunton this afternoon where 90 runners have been declared necessitating an extra race, meaning that the seven race card now gets underway at 12.35pm.

The going of good to soft in places has attracted runners from all the leading trainers including Colin Tizzard, Paul Nicholls, Alan King, Phillip Hobbs, David Pipe , Dan Skelton and Harry Fry, while top jockeys Sam Twiston-Davies, Wayne Hutchinson, Paddy Brennan, Nick Schofield and Bryony Frost are all booked to ride.

The big race is the Elizabeth Chatfield 40th Birthday Handicap Chase (Class 3) at 3.15pm, where the fancied horses look to be Capeland from the Nicholls yard, ridden by Harry Cobden and Lillington trained by Tizzard under 10 pound claimer Angus Cheleda.

In the same race Amoola Gold from the Skelton stable under Bridget Andrews is likely to offer better value and worth a look.

A courtesy coach serves departs from Taunton Railway Station two hours ahead of the off returning from the course 30 minutes after the start of the last.
