Richardofdoccombe Update

Richard in paddock at Newton in May

Saturday's final overnight declarations are now out for the Bathwick Tyres Taunton Novices' Limited Handicap Chase - 3.20pm Taunton.  Only six are declared, but it's a competitive field headed by the Paul Nicholls trained Some Buckle.  Some Buckle was classy over hurdles, but he'll be carrying top weight in extremely testing ground on this his chasing debut.  The Colin Tizzard trained Sandy Beach is in-form but dropping right back in trip. Venetia Williams trained Pressurize looks a 'dark horse' and could run a big race.  Both Sea Wall and Laser Hawk have chances, particularly the latter if he can overcome whatever ailed him at Warwick a few days ago.

About Richardofdoccombe, the AtTheRaces website states - Sprang a surprise when opening hurdling account at the third time of asking in a tongue tie at Newton Abbot (19f) in May. Not seen since and no easy task now going chasing on return - which is fair enough.  AtTheRaces have Richardofdoccombe at 10-1, odds at which he'd certainly be worth a small bet.
