Alan Thomson has a trio of bets at today's Musselburgh racing, headed by a strongly-fancied Irish raider

Musselburgh 3.00

THE MOUSE DOCTOR (3.00) is an interesting Tony Martin raider in the Betway Handicap Hurdle at Musselburgh.

The seven-year-old scored quite handsomely over 1m 4f at Dundalk before Christmas and shaped with plenty of promise (fourth) behind Noel Meade’s Faughernon at Leopardstown on Boxing Day. The Mouse Doctor seems nicely treated on 10st 8lb.

Kajaki hasn’t progressed as expected but ran better on his first start for Nicky Richards at Doncaster, although no match for useful Pagero.

Goldencard is a course and distance winner off a lower mark for Keith Dalgleish, while Seaborough goes handicapping on the back of a clear-cut Sedgefield maiden hurdle success.

Karen McLintock brings back useful Weather Front from a 427-day absence and the betting market should be a guide to stable expectations.

Musselburgh 1.20

CURRAMORE (1.20) is a tempting each-way proposition in the opening 2m 4f handicap hurdle. Lucy Normile’s mare, a Carlisle scorer in November, folded quite tamely behind 140-rated Blu Cavalier at Doncaster in mid-December when meeting stronger opposition but is returned to calmer waters.

Animore is up 8lb for lifting a mares’ handicap hurdle at Kelso and rates a threat. Tabou Beach Boy drew readily clear of Titus Bolt here a fortnight ago, while Not The Chablis edged out the reluctant Highway Companion over course and distance on New Year’s day.

Musselburgh 3.30

CARRIED (3.30) caught the eye when finishing third to impressive Ice Pyramid at Newcastle yesterday and is worth considering if turned out again for the 2m 4f handicap chase. He ran fourth in a similar event at Down Royal on Boxing Day and this is by no means a strong event.

Lingfield 12.00

William Haggas drops QAABIL (12.00) into a handicap at Lingfield and his gelding can take the measure of favourite Haddaf.

Qaabil had to use up a lot of petrol to overcome a very wide draw (13) at Kempton and paid the price when fading into fourth behind the John Gosden-trained duo Godhead and Sheriffmuir.

Haddaf got to the front and routed a lower-grade bunch at Chelmsford City eight days ago and goes unpenalised as it was an apprentices' contest. He is due to go up 7lb so is well treated, but disappointed in third on his previous Lingfield visit when unable to dominate.

    oooooooo put well done winners

    • Jayell61 1 year ago

      None for today azz?

    Early one for tomorrow, backing/tipping is a must. Done us all a favour last time out at Newcastle winning at 25/1 beating the odds on JOLLY 4/11.

    3.15 H Cornerstone Lad 9/2.

    Keeping a very close on the 3.35 Ascot, should be a cracking race between Defi Du Seuil 5/6 and Un De Sceaux 13/8. Backed/Tipped Defi Du for Queen Mother at HQ, I presume this is last race before going to HQ.

    Be Lucky.

      1.50 A Sensulano 4/1 MBS paid as CASH SKYBET.

      2.25 A Bold Plan 4/1 MBS 2/3/4/ PP.

  8. elvis parsley 1 year ago

    One for next Saturday 25th (trials day).
    If the cap fits to win the stayers hurdle then to win the stayers at the festival.
    This horse has been crying out for a true test of stamina and the Cheltenham hill is the answer.
    Will certainly give paisley park something to think about.

    Festival prices
    Paisley park 5-4
    If the cap fits 8-1
    Apple’s jade (no chance at Cheltenham) 14-1.
    16-1 bar.
