3:15 Musselburgh Racing Tips (25th July) Handicap

Horse Racing Tips
Bronze Beau 3rd top rated and most likely leader so place claims and dangerous with an easy lead SILVANUS 7/2 is my 2nd top and won last time out could follow up here PEARL ACCLAIM 7/1 top rated and indicated a return to form the last time out when finishing 2nd.
SUMMARY: I can't split my top 2 if they run to their best so I will be backing both to show a profit whichever one wins but my stakes will favour my top rated.

Pearl Acclaim 7/1 2nd
Silvanus 11/2 3rd
Bond Bombshell 2nd top rated but a few spots below the top spot but could lead here. SEE VERMONT 7/2 usually tracks the leaders and will have a target to aim at in this race.
SUMMARY: it looks a 2 horse race to me with the topweight setting the pace and the selection hunting it down and should prove too strong at the finish.

See Vermont 6/1 1st
SITAR 4/1 is 2nd top rated and could still improve some more being a 3year old GLAZIER POINT 7/2 another 3year old that could improve and my top rated.

SUMMARY: There's 3 runners that have led before and they should be setting the race up for the two 3year old selections and I will go with backing them both to show a profit.

Sitar 9/2 1st
Glazier Point 7/2 2nd + £19.10 EX
UDONTDODOU 9/2 a hold-up type and 3rd top rated CAPTIAN DION 9/1 a possible pace setter and with apprentices allowance moves to top spot KADRIZZI 16/1 original top rated and usually tracks the leaders.
SUMMARY: My top 3 all have chances and they all also have good trainer and jockeys stats at this course, if Captain Dion had been drawn well it might have been my only selection but with 3 other possible front runners and stall 12 to overcome I'm not as confident but hoping I can back all 3 to show a profit.

Udontdou 9/2 3rd
Kadrizzi 16/1 4th
Captain Dion NR
COSMIC CHATTER 8/1 looks the most likely front runner in this race and if getting an easy lead could be hard to catch for most of these. STORM CRY 5/1 is a 3year old who is top rated but will need to be wary of letting the front runner get its own way up front. SUMMARY if my prediction is right it should be a 2 runner race with 1 leading and the other tracking it and then trying to stay on the stronger so it could become tactical between the 2 and I will back both to cover both angles.

Cosmic Chatter 12/1 2nd
Storm Cry 6/1 6th
