Betting Tip: Madame Barker @ 7/1 with skybet

Punters should tread warily here as the race has a habit of producing shock winners – 20/1 (twice) and 40/1 (twice) in the last six runnings. That said it’s hard to drum up much confidence in the supposed rags, My Valentino, East Street Revue and Freeze A Crowd, on the evidence on what they’ve shown on the racecourse so far.

The best of those to have had a run is the current favourite Livella Bella, who stepped up markedly on her debut rebate Hamilton when beaten a nose at Pontefract last time. That was a weak maiden, however, with the first six home covered by less than six lengths, and she may be vulnerable to one of the newcomers.

The market is perhaps the best guide to their chances and, any support for Bryan Smart’s MADAME BARKER would be significant. A yearling purchase price of £18,000 is relatively cheap these days, but the daughter of Frozen Power is related to a couple of sprint winners and her trainer has already sent out a couple of juvenile winners this season, including one first time out at this track.
