2:30 – 5th May – Musselburgh Racing Tips EBF Maiden Stakes

AN EBF Maiden Stakes over 5f. Six two-year-old take part, four with race experience. 

Primo’s Comet made his debut in the Brocklesby and displayed inexperience with a slow star, swishing tail and bucking like a bronco. Unless a huge transformation looks unlikely to figure here. The odds illustrate no particular hope.

Hypnotic Dancer has raced twice and shown little ability. 

Debutante Holmfirst is trained by Paul Midgley who has few winners on their racecourse bow. 

The three major contenders follow.

David Barron is a trainer of note and someone to respect with debutantes. Shanghai Elastic This bay filly is a daughter of Swiss and 5,000G purchase at the yearling sales. This trainer from Maunby, North Yorkshire has respectable win and place claims when priced 13/2 & less SP. It is a slight concern that this youngster costs a small amount of money.

The two principle hopes have both shown a level of ability with respect to the opposition. 

February foal, Faithful Promise, was originally entered to run in the Brocklesby Stakes but Mark Johnston opted for Wolverhampton. This daughter of Acclamation was relatively fancied but faded into sixth place. That was a strange race and the form has been somewhat patchy since. I had the feeling this filly was expected to have gone much closer and to that extent disappointed. That assessment seemed to hold water with a much sharper performance at Leicester. She finished second best to Capla Dancer who won at odds of 66/1. Such a huge priced winner does give the impression it wasn’t the strongest of contests. To be fair, that is probably part true. However, it is difficult to assess form at this time of year. Faithful Promise ran creditably and I feel the stable consider she has the ability to progress. 

Richard Fahey has been in exceptional form this season and Shobrom ran in a competitive maiden at Newmarket. This bay colt is a son of Acclamation and £70,00 yearling purchase. It was no disgrace to finish sixth, beaten by just four lengths.

Competition between betting operators has become really fierce, and so sites like BiggestfreeBets.com are really useful these days. They help you to secure the best free bet deals when choosing bookmakers for your horse racing activity.

Conclusion: Most look unlikely winners and the major three hopes are worthy of interest. David Barron is a trainer of merit and Shanghai Elastic but a cheap purchase. On statistics, she holds each-way claims. The price of the horse is a concern. Faithful Promise has probably proven and should run well but may be a short price. If starting big odds-on I would be careful. In truth, there may be one horse in opposition. Shobrom ran well on debut is what is likely to be a stronger contest than seen at Leicester with Faithful Promise. If Fahey’s representative drifted to a bigger price it may be worth a bet. If both are under 2/1 I would take a watching brief.
