There's a six-race card taking place at Taunton on Thursday afternoon, and our in-house tipster Steve Chambers has picked three tips for the National Hunt action at the Somerset venue...

Taunton Tips

12:55 Taunton

The action kicks off at Taunton at 12:55 with an intriguing novices' hurdle, and it could be worth sticking with Paul Nicholls, who often ventures away from his local track with a winner, and the Ditcheat handler will saddle Gala De Corton, who has shaped with promise over hurdles. No match for stablemate Knappers Hill last time out, GALA DE CORTON did finish ahead of Earth Company, who he locks horns with again in this contest, and he can duly frank that form. Dan Skelton's Jay Jay Reilly is another danger, but he will have to give weight away to Gala De Corton and it's the Nicholls charge that can taste victory for the first time.

A smart novice hurdler, Gary Moore's ERAGON DE CHANAY competed in the Coral Cup at the Cheltenham Festival a few years ago, but he's struggled to produce the same sort of form over fences, but he looks on a very attractive mark in the 13:55 contest this afternoon, and is a decent value play. Only placed in two of his nine starts over the larger obstacles, the seven-year-old ran a little better last time out at Wincanton off a mark of 119. Dropped a further 2lbs to a mark of 117, Eragon De Chanay is certainly attractively handicapped, and while Catch The Cuban and Roque are entitled to be spearheading the market it's Moore's raider that can cause a shock.

15:25 Taunton

Ben Pauling's NORLEY will go in search of a hat-trick of wins this afternoon when lining up in the finale at 15:25, and the in-form six-year-old can defy top weight and land the three-timer in impressive fashion. Entitled to be relatively short at the head of the betting, Norley is due to go up 12lbs in the future, so is attractively well-in with the handicapper, so if he can replicate his recent runs then he can ease to victory. He's actually 1lb lower than his last winning mark here, so everything points to him scoring a week on from a win at Wincanton.
