610-12OR:

Finished 5¾L fifth of nine to Paris Dixie on first start for this trainer at Carlisle (2m1f, good) last month; interesting to see if she can build upon that with the benefit of the run under her belt.

Last RunWatch last race

Cost €3,000 as a 3yo; hasn't shown enough so far in order for her to be competitive in any bumper; should fare better once introduced to hurdling at a more realistic level.

Last RunWatch last race

Half-sister to the 2m4f hurdle/chase winner Grange Hall; showed ability but frustratingly also perfect symmetry in PTP's (F,F,F); raced keenly on rules/stable debut at Doncaster in January when finishing 3L third to Redbridge Gold; player.

510-12OR:

Bought for £30,000 out of the Irish PTP scene in December 2018; flopped on stable/rules debut at Carlisle (3/1), but hails from much respected quarters and is surely far better than that opening effort; market helpful.

510-12OR:

Second foal; half-sister to the point winner Frankies Fire; outpaced in a 3m Flat Race at Alnwick (Northumberland) 12-days ago; rules debut.

6
410-5OR:

Sixth foal; half-sister to the 7½f-2m Flat/2m hurdle and chase winner Thankyouverymuch; holds an obvious chance on debut in a low-key bumper; trainer 3-21 (14%) in bumpers (1-1 (100%) this season).

€2,500 foal, £5,000 yearling; second foal from a Listed bumper/2m4f-3m hurdle/chase winner; trainer 7-91 (8%) in bumpers; market helpful in assessing her chance.

Betting

Forecast

Methodtothemadness (1/1), Mrs Davies (6/1), Tannadice Park (15/2), Danced Every Dance (15/2), Hello Bob (15/2), Colorado Gold (8/1), Shelter Belt (28/1)

Verdict

Methodtothemadness has demonstrated that she has a degree of natural ability and is likely to figure towards the fore of the market. However, there are also other alternatives worth exploring. Mrs Davies flopped on debut for Carluke-handler Keith Dalgleish, but horses carrying the Straightline Bloodstock silks are always worthy of respect in the northern region, so there's every chance that she'll leave that poor opening effort well behind. Nevertheless, the very tentative advice is to take a chance on the James Bethell-trained newcomer HELLO BOB who is a half-sister to the adaptable Flat winner Thankyouverymuch (who also carried the Robert Gibbons silks).
