You're going to like this train .....Not a lot Plain

Had a few quid E/W @ 33/1 and a little more on betfair at north of 30.

First the positives ...she was a member of The Royal Ballet at 16,and after graduating went on to be part of the Iranian National Ballet.Originally part of the Corps de Ballet she eventually progressed to become a soloist.In later life she was of course known for being assisitiant to her eventual husband Paul Daniels.

The Ballet background will naturally be a huge positive,as will her showbiz background and her lack of inhibition.At last nights red carpet bash she seemed very bubbly and even on the brief footage shown it's very easy to see she can move and has rhythm.Despite her age she looks in fantastic shape and given her flexibility and small physique  should be able to do lifts with the minimum of fuss.Possibility too of some goodwill from TGBP after losing her husband pretty recently.

The obvious negative is her age.At 58 she would be by far the oldest ever SCD winner.However she looks perhaps the best equipped of any oldster who has participated given her physique and presumed level of fitness.Hopefully the prods attempt to give her some help as an older winner would tick one of the few remaining boxes left.

I'm not over keen on anyone at the head of the market.Aston is an obvious ringer and has that huge hurdle to overcome,Alexandra a ringer to a lesser degree and also perhaps some personality issues.Mollie an obvious contender but looks very similar in profile to Frankie Bridge who ultimately came up short.Gemma (with apparently no dance experience) easy to dismiss at the price.

Jonnie likely to have enormous goodwill but looked stiff at the red carpet do,Davood and Joe unknowns and quite likely to be decent,Charlotte looks OKish in a few online clips but nothing special.Ruth and Richard likely to be popular with viewers and plenty of fun but perhaps ultimately not good enough dancers.The rest look fodder.

Fingers crossed for a decent run at 33/1 ......Choo Choo Cool

Debbie is one of the least likeable people in the universe, from what is reported she canvassed to get on SCD as a "tribute" to her late husband, I think she would have pushed him off a cliff a year earlier if she thought it would get her a place on the show.

I'm not forecasting any goodwill  for her, a early bath is more likely imo

I agree with Mach.  With her Barbie doll appearance, little-girl voice, etc., she has to be totally unlikeable to the core voters.

She has done the RTV circuit to death so there is nothing new to see.

The "doing it for Paul" just seems totally cynical.

Everthing about her reeks of desperation.

Numerous older ladies on the show who have had varying degrees of success will have connected with the audience a lot more than I anticipate this over-tanned, over-dyed, over-made-up monstrosity will.

Can you name a strong dancer that still traded 33/1 in the OR after dancing on a live show, mach.
Report hemsby August 29, 2017 4:56 PM BST
The personality issue is of course pretty relevant,but it's also an obstacle which can be overcome with the right trajectory and (more importantly) dance ability.

Last year's winner Ore came across pretty poorly early doors and was obviously struggling in the vote given his early B2 appearance.Abbey Clancy another who was B2 early doors (iirc) before winning.

With The Lovely Debbie McGee her chances largely depend on how proficient she is on the dance floor.We've all watched this show for many years and know how it works.....if she's favoured and pushed at the latter stages there's no reason why she couldn't win provided her dance ability isn't too far off the other contenders.

Danny Mac was a far better dancer than Ore,but Ore got the best songs/ routines in the final and was ramped to victory.If they want to push an "oldie" this year then its highly likely Debbie will be their best option in regards to dance ability.
Report Cider August 29, 2017 5:05 PM BST
Definitely helps to have an angle, and the prods on the big shows (XF, SCD) appear generally to want to keep the viewers guessing recently, rather than a go to woah winner like Harry in the past. As we seen with Jay they tried nearly everything in their locker to try and stop him when everyone expected him to walk it.

My point is I don't think Debbie will trade like a strong dancer.
the strongish dancers that have appeared in the dance off's due to suspect popularity  often trade about 8-20 when they survive the dance off, I don't see Debbie making it to trade in the low teens or single figures.
Debbie will probably dance well for an oldie but I don't see the price crash for a trade before it is clear her personality is a hindrance.

That's my point mach, the initial 'gamble' is whether she can mix it with the younger ones toward the top of the scoreboard, so the personality only comes into it later down the line. If she's mid table, personality won't be relevant in regard to OR price. My suspicion is that they will give her a favourable strong song/dance to kick off with a bit of a fanfare.

Now currently trading between 7-8 .....I've sold some back in that range but still have her healthy green.

What's interesting checking the SM figures this morning is how well she is doing.SM normally wouldn't be the greatest friend to an older contestant,however she leads the field on YouTube views,Facebook likes and official Twitter feed likes.Also joint Top of the very early TM poll.

What's abundantly clear from last night is that she's in terrific shape and maintains a large proportion of  the flexibility and grace from her ballet days.Crucially too she seems to be thoroughly enjoying it.Of course now the cat is out of the bag regarding her ability and she won't have the "shock" value she enjoyed last night.

Hopefully plenty of fun to be had during the series for anyone on board early at big prices and the nice problem to have of whether to cash in or let it ride.Prudent probably to at least sell back the initial stake at this very early stage,however my feeling is that she isn't particularly overpriced at this moment in time.

Another excellent piece of music for TLDM and the style of a Fred & Ginger number is right in the sweet spot of SCD viewers.

Current price is 5.5 - 5.6 ....TBH I’ve no strong opinion about where the price will be this time tomorrow evening.Aston & Alexandra again looking decent in training and the possibility of Gemma having a good week too.

Hopefully anyone on board has at very least sold their stake back for a free bet.Personally I’ve now sold approximately 33% of my initial green to spread around a few of the other contenders.

Not the greatest of weekends for TLDM .....asked to perform in Trap 1and a lukewarm response from the judges.

CCC was always going to be an extremely difficult dance for her given her ballet background so I’m delighted to have got that one out of the way early on,rather than be vulnerable to elimination with it later.

I didn’t think her dance was too bad actually,not the most exciting TBH but the music dictated that it would be a sugar sweet routine with a pretty slow tempo (at least for a CCC)

Current price approx 12 - 12.5 ....time to bail or time to press up ?

She has the Rumba next weekend ,traditionally the “dance of death” for contestants given its slow and exposing nature.I’m hoping the opposite will be true for TLDM and it’s a dance I’ve always felt should suit her.Given her ballet  background I’m hoping that her grace and poise will be to her advantage when performing on Saturday.

She’s due a late slot in the RO and I’m hoping perhaps that this week sees her shoot up the betfair ladder again.Hopefully the music reveal tomorrow and the training clips will give some clues of what to expect.

I’ve backed my hunch and backed her again this morning at around 12 (someone was quite keen to bail) .Must confess though I haven’t been too clever in predicting her price fluctuations throughout the competition so far ....fingers crossed I’ve got this one right.

We’ve hit a slight delay,however this train is firmly still in the tracks and I’m hoping we’ll be making ground up again this weekend.

A very good weekend for TLDM topping the LB with her Rumba and hitting an IR low of 8.2.

Perhaps fair to say she was slightly overmarked as the routine had a couple of wobbles and TBH I was a little underwhelmed.I sold a fair amount of green on the night so it ended up a pretty profitable trade.

Charleston this week (Halloween) and she’s dancing to the Sister Sledge track Frankie which seems a bizarre choice as it doesn’t feel suitable for that type of dance.I imagine we’ll see Gio dressed as Frankenstein and Debbie the mad scientist (?)

Jury out ATM as to what to expect in regards of competence and clips on Weds and Thurs ITT should hopefully reveal a few clues.

Amazing night with TLDM getting the first 40 of the series and Aston providing some of  the forum with a 200/1 IR winning elimination bet.

TLDM In to favourite now and was matched as low as 2.9 IIRC last night before drifting a little to around 3.2 at suspension.With Aston being eliminated it looks likely she will open pretty short tonight when markets go live again.

Only right to sound a note of caution for anyone on this train and holding a nice position.Checking SM reaction there has been a bit of a backlash to last night’s show,with the furore being that TLDM is being overmarked.TBH I think there is some justification to this as whilst her Tango was excellent,it wasn’t really a 40 dance.

Perhaps TPTB will look to dampen her marks down over the next few weeks in order to avoid accusations of favouritism, before (hopefully) pushing her to victory at the business end ?

Whatever happens I’d say it would be prudent for anyone holding a decent position to attempt to level out a little over the course of the week and attempt to lock in some guaranteed profit .....that’s the way I’ve played it anyway.

Hopefully everyone on board now assured of a winning series and just a question of how to play the remainder.
