Timeform on Bridies Dancer
MANDEVILLE PIXIE (Trap 3) appears to have been downgraded in the A5 contest at 16:29 at Romford having won an A3 last time, but that A3 affair was a weak one for the class and this A4 is harder. All the same, it ought to be within her grasp as the switch back to the white jacket has coincided with a steep upturn in form and helped her see out her races more strongly. If she breaks as she usually does, she'll soon be in front.
The best bet at Crayford this afternoon promises to be BRIDIES DANCER (Trap 1) in the 16:58. Pups tend to be looked upon generously when starting their racing life at Crayford and at just 18 months, Bridies Dancer is having only his third race. He still has some improving to do at the traps, but she finished with a flourish last time and can find the improvement to get off the mark here.
In the 17:44 at Romford, SLANEYSIDE CADET (Trap 4) looks the one to be on. Maxine Locke's black has been put in at a big price which is something of a surprise given he ran a career best last time out by our reckoning and faces an easier task here. As with our earlier selection Mandeville Pixie, however, the literal drop in grade from A2 to A4 should be taken with a pinch of salt.
MANDEVILLE PIXIE (Trap 3) - 16:29 Romford
BRIDIES DANCER (Trap 1) - 16:58 Crayford
SLANEYSIDE CADET (Trap 4) - 17:44 Romford
