Timeform pick out their three best bets from Taunton on Wednesday…
“He’s entitled to do better in this sphere yet…”
Timeform on Khage
Khage was a faller on hurdling debut at Bangor in October, but his first completed start over timber at Southwell last time was a solid one, shaping better in the hood he wore for his previous yard. He’s entitled to do better in this sphere yet, and considering he has given the impression that he is up to winning a race of this nature, he’s taken to score. La Ligerien and Kyallchy Gala are two others to consider in an intriguing contest.
Just the four due to head to post, but an intriguing contest nonetheless. Preference is for Still Believing, who despite being hit with a hefty rise by the handicapper for her most recent success, arrives here on good terms against her two main rivals, Romain de Senam and Fox Appeal. Indeed, Still Believing is in fine form at the moment, which is more than can be said for the rest of the field, and she’s taken to win again.
Not That Fuisse has yet to win this autumn, but he ran very well to finish second in a competitive contest at Cheltenham last month, emerging as the only runner in significantly improve his position in the straight. Stepped up an extra three furlongs or so, he could have more to offer yet and gets the vote to take this. Gwalia is firmly on the upgrade now and is the obvious threat.
