The Scottish meeting at Musselburgh stages an above-average card on Monday afternoon. We will provide Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions for the three main contests, starting with a Class 3 conditions stakes run over the minimum trip at 3.00pm.
Thirty five minutes later at 3.35pm our second Horse Racing tip competes in a Class 4 handicap, also run over 5f. Our third and final selection runs in a Class 2 handicap, run over 7f at 4.10pm.
Our Tip for the 3.00pm at Musselburgh:
With confirmed front runners Roulston Scar and El Astronaute making sure there will be no hanging around in this 5f conditions sprint, the pair may just set the race up for the Julie Camacho-trained Makanah who has such a good record at the track.
The son of Mayson could well be unbeaten at Musselburgh in his three starts on the course if the six-year-old (winner of this race 12 months ago) had not been denied a clear run at a crucial stage when going down by a short head to Mokaatil (receiving 13lb) back in August.
Paul Hanagan’s mount was not disgraced in a Group 3 contest at Newbury last month and can prove too good for the two pacesetters and four-time runner-up Dubai Station.
Our Tip for the 3.35pm at Musselburgh:
An open sprint handicap in which many can be given a chance, in particular joint bottom weight Albegone who has been in great form of late and open to plenty more improvement. At a much bigger price however, the value may lie with one of trainer Jim Goldie’s two runners, the five-year-old mare Sound Of Iona.
The daughter of Orientor’s only disappointing run of late came over course and distance last month when failing to beat a single rival behind Glory Fighter. The mount of 5lb claimer Amie Waugh suffered a hefty bump leaving the stalls on that occasion which may be the reason for that below-par effort.
Sound Of Iona had previously won races at Haydock and Musselburgh earlier in September and a return to that kind of form should see the mare go close at a decent price.
Our Tip for the 4.10pm at Musselburgh:
Providing the ground does not dry out too much, the Richard Fahey-trained soft ground specialist Zip should take plenty of beating in this 7f handicap and could be a horse to follow during the final few weeks of the 2021 Flat season.
The son of Kyllachy posted some excellent efforts on testing ground around this time last year and produced a career-best performance when finishing a close fourth in Ascot’s Victoria Cup (beaten a length and a half) back in May.
Following a break of almost three months, the mount of 3lb claimer Billy Garritty ran well in third place at Ayr two weeks ago, looking as if the five-year-old grey would improve for the run and is fancied to record a sixth career victory. Eagleway, two places in front of Zip in the Victoria Cup, can prove the main danger.
