The match is moving along pretty steadily at about 95-100 runs a session with Carberry and Abell showing it can travel a bit faster if two batsmen get set. Given declarations are pretty conservative in 4-day cricket, defeats are very costly in the Championship as Somerset discovered in 2019, chasing sides rarely risk defeat to keep chasing, Somerset rarely declare less than 400 ahead, so set them nothing less than 360 in three full sessions on a 100 run a session pitch. That said I would bat them out of the game if I could and then put the pressure on.

Not that I am taking this seriously of course. Neither did I ever captain a cricket side.
