Racing Tip: New York To Be Streets Ahead At Musselburgh

Streets Of Newyork has been in good heart over hurdles of late and has to be of interest back on the level at his favoured venue

Today’s Class 3 totepool Musselburgh Gold Cup can go to the in-form Streets Of Newyork at an appealing price of 4/1 best odds guaranteed at William Hill.

The Steve Gollings-trained Handiwork currently heads betting for the 2 mile handicap having bolted up at Catterick when last racing in this sphere, but even on the back of an impressive run over timber at Haydock, a 9lb rise will still be difficult to overcome. Top-weight Lady Kashan is a course winner with something to prove on her re-appearance, while Royal Signaller could come on from his All-Weather debut for Michael Appleby and is respected along with front-runner Be Perfect and the lightly-weighted Braes Of Lochalsh who is likely to fair better upped in trip.

However, Streets Of Newyork has been so consistent of late that it’s impossible to overlook the 8-year-old Dalakhani gelding. Winner of a York handicap from just 3lb lower in May, Brian Ellison’s charge has thrived over hurdles with a runner-up effort at Wetherby followed by a victory at today’s venue before narrowly being denied in the Listed Scottish County Hurdle at the course. Streets Of Newyork confirmed his liking for Musselburgh by winning a handicap hurdle on his latest start in February and can make it course victory number three on Sunday afternoon.
