Horse racing: Don't rule out this 12-1 Taunton shot who has three course and distance wins
SUN RACING is back to give you some insight on big horses at even bigger prices.
Here, we try to find the value bets which could net you a tasty return from a small stake.
TACTICAL MANOEUVRE (3.40 Taunton)
There were better signs from this ten-year-old when finishing sixth here last time out. The handicapper has bumped him down a couple of pounds for that effort and the better ground should help too.

Each way thief
MINNIE ESCAPE (3.15 Ludlow)
She was in winning form at Stratford two runs ago before a solid fourth at Wincanton latest. This trip suits well and she takes a drop in class here, which can’t hurt.
HOT RYAN (4.12 Taunton)
This eight-year-old was in decent nick for David Pipe but hasn’t been seen for 511 days. He has moved to Chris Honour who has been in good form. If he’s anywhere close to his old form he’ll go close at this level.
Don't forget, SunSport tipster Templegate has given a verdict on every race on Thursday.
Won well on debut and this is a big drop in class from his Haydock third.
1.00 Gaelik Coast
Plenty in hand when winning at Musselburgh last time out.
Good winner at Donny and should enjoy this longer trip.
2.05 Champagne Mystery
Can bounce back from efforts in stronger races than this.
2.40 Glory And Honour (NAP)
Has been flying in bumpers and has more to come over hurdles.
3.15 Majestic Merlin
Ran well before puzzling effort latest and looks well weighted.
3.50 Copain De Classe
Miles better than these at his peak and can defy absence.
1.10 Smokey Malone
Likes this track and good run despite slow start last time.
1.40 Mr Excellency
Easy winner here on debut and has much more to offer.
2.15 Rock Sound
Plenty in hand when winning here last time out.
2.50 Young John
Yard flying and went close at Chelmsford latest.
3.25 Jeans Maite
Good run here last time and a repeat would be good enough.
4.00 Blowing Dixie
Capable of landing his sixth course and distance win.
4.30 Mizen Master
Has dropped in weights and good effort here last time out.
1.55 Just In Time
Good Flat performer with more to come over hurdles.
Has won on past four starts in this selling company.
3.05 Sunny Express
Good effort at Musselburgh and looks ahead of the handicapper.
Flat winner who battled well to score at Southwell latest.
4.12 Black Centaur (nb)
Went close at Hereford last time and likes this distance.
4.42 Waikiki Waves
Has had a break since a modest run and was going well before that.
5.12 Get Sky High
Consistent and went close again at Kempton last time.
4.50 Colour Of Light
Well bred and went close on debut at Kempton 16 days ago.
In cracking form and move to a mile looks a wise move.
5.50 Spring Romance (treble)
Knocking on the door and went close again at Wolver latest.
Listed class performer who has gone well after a break before.
6.50 My Footsteps
Has shown best form over this course and distance.
Good second at Wolver and has gone close here before.
7.50 Sergeant Major
Unlucky at Lingfield latest and won’t be far away.
