The excellent start to our season continues with a double today from Methodtothemadness and Le Frank.
Methodtothemadness, pictured, is a filly with plenty of speed and we made an error testing her on debut over two and a half miles last time. Today making all was perfect for her and she concentrated well with her hood on. Her jumping was very sound and it is exciting for Mark and Susie Russell to have a nice horse in their team.
Le Frank used to be a soft finisher, but this season he is stronger and he ran on well up the stiff home straight. His bold jumping stands him in good stead and the patience shown by his owners should continue to be rewarded; well done and thank you Smith, Fitzpatrick, and Shiner.
Southern Girl ran a solid race to be fourth, lacking a recent run she made good headway half a mile from home but could not sustain it close home. She has plenty of stamina and will be a useful filly for her owner.
