RASELASAD (3.30) seems to be running into form judged on his close third at Doncaster at the end of May and this confirmed front-runner could be hard to catch at Musselburgh. Tracy Waggott’s gelding is a previous course and distance winner on fast ground and stall one is perfect.
Gavin Cromwell sends a couple across the Irish Sea and LEVER DU SOLEIL (3.00) is of definite interest in the Class 6 handicap over two miles. His four-year-old was a winner at Gowran Park last November and more recently ran a fine second at Stratford. Formerly trained by Tim Easterby to land a modest maiden handicap at Redcar on good to firm, Lever Du Soleil may have the legs of another Redcar winner, Nearly There.
With so many low-grade contests on the eight-race card stakes should be kept under control, but ISHEBAYORGREY (4.00) is probably worth a little extra on the back of his third to in-form rivals Redarna and Edgar Allan Poe at Carlisle (good to soft). Today’s turf will be riding much slicker but Ishebayorgrey was just denied by Hillgrove Angel over 10f at Ayr on good to firm, so should handle conditions.
SOTO SIZZLER (7.20), a dual winner at Epsom, has been a totally different horse this summer and can cope with a 4lb rise at Kempton this evening.
Thirsk's turning seven furlongs will suit INNER CIRCLE (5.40), a respectable fourth to in-form Jackhammer at Carlisle. Roger Fell's gelding has been dropped 2lb to an attractive mark. Course and distance winner Atletico rates a threat.
