Poet's Reflection is the value alternative to favourite Norley in the Short Run Press – The Proper Book Binders Handicap Hurdle (3.25) at Taunton.
The Lynda Blackford-trained daughter of Dylan Thomas gained her sole victory over this course and distance last March.
And Poet’s Reflection was in the process of running another fine race back in Somerset in a handicap hurdle over an extended two miles last time out.
Sean Houlihan’s mount had a narrow lead and had yet to be asked for her effort when taking a heavy fall at the second-last flight.
Had she stayed on her feet, Poet’s Reflection would very likely have had a say in proceedings and, off the same British Horseracing Authority mark of 84, she can give the market leader plenty to think about.

At Wolverhampton, there are several grounds for expecting MILLION REASONS to give a good account of himself in the MansionBet Best Odds Guaranteed Handicap (5.05).
Although yet to hit the bullseye in 15 attempts – of which six have been on the all-weather – Million Reasons finished with gusto to take fourth, beaten two and a half lengths, to Sovereign Slipper over six furlongs at Lingfield Park 23 days ago.
His finishing effort suggested the Dave Evans trainee would be well worth a try over further and, if that theory holds any weight, a BHA handicap mark of 54 is there to be shot at.
