Taunton 2.10

Taunton 2.10 7 Fearsome Fred @ 13/2 / 10 River Dun @ 12/1 - 1 /2 point each way (Sky to 4th place)

A 3 mile Handicap Hurdle and we anticipate the Going to be a fair bit worse than the "soft advertised. Garrane is favourite;
down in Class and solid but not sure about the trip or the Going in the context of 5/1. Similar value concerns apply to Georgina Joy and 
In The Hold, both have good chances, but not totally convinced about the trip in the mud off these marks. FEARSOME FRED was a runner
up for Robin when tipped last time, ran very well in defeat at Towcester, the hill here is less severe and looks to be on a nice handicap mark;
and won't mind any deterioration in the Going. RIVER DUN is one of those that you know has a race in him, just about getting the best out
of him one day, he gets a pull in weights with Georgina Joy, the blinkers seemed to have eeked out a bit last time and off a slightly better
mark again, he comes increasingly well handicapped. The one I fear at very big odds is DECKERS DELIGHT; won at Hereford in similar
conditions on a similar track in December 2016 off a mark of 100!!; would have needed last run and at around 33/1 (with SkyBet paying
odds to 4th) no no-hope off a mark of 91, in easily the easiest race since then and would have needed last run. Worth a few bob and also
if you are playing a Tricast perm, the type to boost the pot!
