Alan Thompson has 4 racing tips for Friday's horse racing action at Musselburgh.

ULLION BOSS (1.20) bids to follow up his course victory three weeks ago and should handle the drop from three miles to 2m 4f in the handicap hurdle at Musselburgh.

An 8lb rise makes things harder for Nicky Richards' favourite but he should still have the edge over Red Ochre, placed on his last three starts for Chris Grant, and Jim Goldie’s tough mare Sarvi, a course winner over two miles 32 days ago.

CHANTING HILL (1.55) was an expensive faller when sent off 5-4 favourite at Newcastle in November, having scored the previous month at Kelso. Nick Alexander’s mare could still be on the upgrade. Jonjo O’Neill’s Hang Tough will have no trouble with underfoot conditions, having won on soft/heavy, and he should have been freshened up following a 52-day break. Ben Pauling fits blinkers on Linenhall, fifth at Market Rasen last month.

LOUGHERMORE (3.00) ran out a game-winner at Wetherby on Boxing Day and his 6lb rise is negated by 7lb conditional rider William Shanahan. Kelso winner Artic Mann should also be on the premises in a tricky 2m 4f handicap hurdle.

Lucinda Russell’s string was in sparkling form at Ayr earlier in the week and BOOK OF INVASIONS (3.30) heads a three-pronged attack in the 2m 4f handicap chase. Her top weight has been dropped 2lb after running a solid third to On A Promise over course and distance before Christmas and is preferred at an each-way price to stablemate Izzy’s Champion, third to Eagle Ridge and Buckled over three miles on the same card.  Brian Hughes has his usual strong book of rides and Not The Chablis should be involved on the strength of his course second to Brotherly Love over 2m 6f. Mike Smith’s Fourth Of July made an excellent chasing debut at Catterick when splitting the Christian Williams-trained Barden Bella and Annie Day. That was over two miles, so he has the stamina to prove.
