Ludlow Maire Banrigh

Horse racing - Ludlow - 20 Dec 13:55

Trainer Dan Skelton is in good form, currently operating at a 27% strike rate (10 from 37). He's also got a 24% strike rate here at Ludlow (21 from 88). Tomorrow he unleashes Maire Banrigh who will be making her debut for the yard, I think she could be very good and 11/4 is a good price.

Maire Banrigh has a decent enough pedigree, by King's Theatre she's a half-sister to the Nigel Twiston-Davies trained Ballykan (rated 136). She was originally with Colin Bowe in Ireland and trained as a point-to-point horse.

On her PTP debut she was sent off the 4/6 favourite which speaks volumes. She didn't disappoint either, running out an easy 5 length winner. The form has a bit of substance to it, the horse in 2nd has since won a PTP and a bumper, the 4th has also won a PTP since. Following that win she went to the sales, fetching a massive £320,000.

At the start of the season Dan Skelton said "She obviously has a great reputation and she’s going to be a much watched mare. She is very exciting and hopefully we can make her into a good horse".

I'm pleased to see her start off at 21 furlongs as connections originally planned to start her over the minimum trip, with that in mind it looks like she's here to win. She could easily be a class above this lot despite it being a decent race.
