Timeform on Teddys Mate
MRS HOPEFUL (Trap 4, 16:23 Sheffield) arrives winless since her debut success in January, yet the majority of her efforts since have been interrupted by trouble-in-running, including latest when a fast finishing fourth in a race that is working out well. Her style of racing suggests the switch to a handicap is a plus, not least with the chance to open-up without early crowding and from what looks a good make-up, she may be ready to regain the winning thread.
RHODENCOPENHAGEN (Trap 5, 16:43 Sheffield) landed back-to-back basement grade contests around the turn of the year and in truth, has continued the good work in defeat in this higher grade since, going close on two of his last three starts. Today's contest is his easiest for a while and with a clear run, Harry Grimshaw's charge can emerge victorious.
An impressive winner in A2 grade in January, TEDDYS MATE (Trap 4, 19:16 Nottingham) has been lightly raced since, filling the runners-up spot on each of his two starts in recent weeks. On balance, he has the capability to make up in to a solid A1 performer with regular racing and he can bide his time behind the pace-setters and land this A2 affair.
