2:30 Musselburgh Racing Tips (13th May)

Musselburgh racecourse
MUSSELBURGH 2.30 

Quite a poor race in many ways and of the 12 runners.

I can discard half the field leaving me with 2 horses: Boudica Bay 6/1 and Bahlwan 11/4, who both won last time out but in slow times but I cannot discard either of them from my list of potential winners.

Mr Shelby 6/1 is the only runner with a time fast enough to register on my figures this year but it is only 4th top on all speed figures but the jockeys 1-2 strike rate makes me think connections are expecting a big run here. 

Roaring Rory 10/1. I've gone back to 2017 at Beverley to find this ones best figure which would make it 3rd top rated. The trainer's 21% win ratio and the jockey's 29% win ratio on this stable older horses make me think its another runner where connections have high hopes. 

Foxy Boy 14/1 is my 2nd top rated and this ones trainer has a decent 17% win rate with its older horses so maybe another one expected to go well, so has to go on my long shortlist and at the price it might be the value each way bet.

Groundworker 8/1 comes out top rated on a time from Thirsk in 2018 so has to be considered as a likely winner. 

I think the winner will come from one of the horses mentioned but which one I haven't got a scooby. The betting may shed some light on the matter but unless there's something of real value I will most likely leave this race alone. 

PS: Now the betting is up the call might be to have 2 each way bets on GROUNDWORKER 8/1 and FOXY BOY 14/1 as they are my 2 top rated but stakes will be kept low.

Groundworker 18/1 5th 
Foxy Boy 18/1 8th
