Eight runners in a class two race but a very hard race to weigh up, the top weighted three year old Maljaa is the only one that looks to be in any decent level of form lately and has won its last three races and when a three year old starts to improve there's no telling how much higher it can go and it doesn't seem to matter to it what the going is, so quite a versatile horse despite being a front runner type its times have been a bit slower than some of the others in the race, but it might need to set a slower pace and then make it a two furlong dash for the line, but the others have just not been in the same level of form recently but it might not get its own way in front here, the other three year old Astrophysics also likes to front run and has done marginally faster times, the other possible front runner is DEMORA 14/1 who I have to admit straight away hasn't run to the time it set at Ascot in 2014 where it led and then only got beaten a length into fourth and a repeat of that would be enough as it makes it the top rated, Normal Equilibrium has a five pound claiming apprentice on board which would draw it level with Demora but the trainers record at Leicester is poor with no winners from twenty one runners. So I will be having a small each way bet on the selection and hope it can get to the front and if doing so could be very hard to catch.
4:30 Musselburgh - Twelve runners over the minimum trip with five of them having been known to lead before so I think it might set the race up for something staying on from behind the leaders, I've got Ruby's day as my third top rated and then I've got joint top rated horses Captain Royale did its best time in 2014 but hasn't been anywhere near that since and the trainer doesn't use the track particularly to have winners and at the age of ten the horse might just becoming to the end of its racing career so its not for me even though it has been known to lead but im going with the top weight FLASH CITY 5/1 who does like to race with a big weight against lesser animals and is quite consistent but hasn't got a good win to runs ratio but it does have a good chance here and I'm hoping it pays off and if its a big enough price to back each way would be having a decent sized bet.
Flash City 5/1 5th
Demora - no bet - soft ground
