Willie Mullins struck gold with his very first runner at Market Rasen as Panic Attack made a hugely impressive debut in the Alan Swinbank Mares’ Standard Open National Hunt Flat Race.

The daughter of Canford Cliffs had been due to start her career at Cheltenham earlier in the campaign, only to be balloted out having already made the trip across the Irish Sea.

Pitched in at Listed level for her second trip to Britain, Panic Attack was the 5-2 favourite in the hands of Irish champion jockey Paul Townend – and it was certainly worth the journey for both horse and jockey.

After being settled in behind the pacesetters for much of the extended two-mile contest, the four-year-old travelled powerfully to the lead early in the home straight before powering clear of her toiling rivals.

Panic Attack passed the post 10 lengths clear without being asked for maximum effort, with fellow Irish challenger The Getaway Star filling the runner-up spot under Tom Queally, who will forever be linked with the great Frankel.

Mullins did not travel to Lincolnshire, but told the PA news agency: “She was very impressive. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but she’d done good work at home and I was hoping she’d run well.

“Running against more experienced mares on that sort of ground, I was worried she might come up a bit short, but she was very good.”

Trainers Quotes

David Pipe will freshen up the five-year-old up Israel Champ before pitching him into Grade One company for the first time — an assignment for which he was short as 10-1 joint-favourite.

Since meeting with defeat on his debut under rules at Worcester in October, Israel Champ has secured back-to-back Listed victories at Cheltenham and Ascot.

Pipe said: “I’ve had a chat with the owners, and the only other possible race for him was to go to Newbury, but the plan is to now go straight to the Champion Bumper.

“He would only have one penalty to carry at Newbury, but he has already proved he warrants taking his chance in the Champion Bumper.

“He has only just turned five, so we thought we would freshen him up this month and then start training for the Champion Bumper. He won’t worry about the occasion.”
