4:55 Musselburgh Racing Tips (3rd June) Edinburgh Gin Distillery Handicap (Class 4) (4yo+ 0-85)

Racing Tips
This looks a nice class 4 race with 9 runners and I'm hoping it doesn't rain and spoil the going for my bets, 3 of these have been known to lead before and 2 of them are natural front running sorts but Showdaisy is drawn in stall 9 and timewise isn't in my top 4, so I hope that BOSHAM 13/2 from stall 6 can lead and then repel all challengers the trainer has a 23% win rate here and the 3lb claiming apprentice jockey has a 12% win rate, my 2nd top rated is Longroom who has won its last 2 races and one of those wins was at this course but they were in class 6 races so this is a jump of 2 levels, he's warranted being raised but it might prove too much if the selection does get a lead but it could run on into a place and this trainer also has a 23% win rate here and the 5lb claiming apprentice jockey has a cracking 3-5 win rate for the stable so it looks like both of my top 2 are expected to run well here.

Bosham 13/2 8th

I hope all 8 runners run here and half have led before, Compas Scoobie is my 3rd top rated from a time recorded this year at Yarmouth, my 2nd top rated is HIGHLY SPRUNG 6/1 who is one of the possible pace setters and is only 1lb behind my top rated GORING 6/1 who is a hold up type and any small error would negate the advantage so I can't realistically split them and I will back both to cover both angles.

Highly Sprung 8/1 5th

8:50 Lingfield -
This 12 runner race is quite dire with only 2 horses that have recorded a time fast enough to register on my figures, Monteamiata is 2nd top and only 3 years old so it could still improve but I will stick with the proven and ANNIE SALTS 4/1 who won last time out at Wolverhampton and the jockey Sivestre De Sousa has kept the ride and has a 15% win rate for this stable and its a front-running sort and can hopefully lead all the way here but with a couple of maybe hidden dangers and five 3-year-olds it's perhaps wise not to go in too heavily.

Oce again I hope all 8 run and again half of them have led before and my top 2 come from different styles here, Horsforth is my 4th top rated and its 5lb claimer would move it to 3rd spot, in 3rd spot is/was Novebridge who is a versatile horse with its tactics, my original 2nd top rated is LADY JOANNA VASSA 7/1 a possible front runner and from the same stable as Horsforth but the 5lb claiming apprentice jockey on this horse has a good 18% win rate and the claim would move it to top spot so will most probably try to win this race from the front and then be very hard to catch but my original top rated is Windforpower who has proven its well being this year and could be the one to prosper if they go too fast early in the race and fade near the finish but I'm going with an all the way win with my top rated horse.

Lady Joanna Vassa 14/1 7th
