Jump racing takes place at Chepstow and Musselburgh on Wednesday afternoon and it is to the Scottish track we go for today’s Horse Racing tips, previews and predictions, starting with the 1.20pm race, a 2m 4f novices’ handicap chase.
Our second Horse Racing tip runs in the 3m handicap hurdle at 2.50pm, with our final selection coming in the following 3m 5f Lothians Racing Syndicate Handicap Chase at 3.20pm.
Our Tip for the 1.20pm at Musselburgh:
Despite having to carry top weight on his first run over fences, the Micky Hammond-trained Shaws Bridge could prove much better than his seven moderate rivals on his chasing debut in this novices’ handicap.
The Kalanisi gelding improved with each of his three runs since joining Hammond from the stable of Keith Dalgleish back in March, the eight-year-old’s last two runs resulting in a victory and creditable second place, both at Perth.
The mount of Ryan Mania may have found the trip of 3m a shade too far on his most recent start and this strong traveller, who is sure to have been well schooled over the bigger obstacles, can make a winning start over fences in this 2m 4f contest. Broadway Joe made a winning debut over fences at Kelso just over a week ago and looks to be the main danger.
Our Tip for the 2.50pm at Musselburgh:
A winner over hurdles at Market Rasen back in July, the Rebecca Menzies-trained Wynford has been in sparkling form on the level since then, courtesy of victories at Newcastle, Beverley and in a 2m 2f marathon at Pontefract.
The mount of Nathan Moscrop is probably the one to beat in this 3m handicap hurdle. But on his first try over this trip, and with the Donald McCain stable in such good form, it could pay to take a chance on a form revival for joint top weight Beach Break.
Talented claimer Theo Gillard takes 5lb off the seven-year-old who has dropped to a mark of 118, the gelding’s last victory coming off 123 twelve months ago. The son of Cacique’s penultimate run can be discounted due to two very bad mistakes, while prior to that Beach Break was beaten less than two lengths by fellow rival The Blame Game and now enjoys a 5lb pull in the weights.
Our Tip for the 3.20pm at Musselburgh:
The Rose Dobbin-trained Do Not Disturb has been in great form this year, winning two races at Kelso back in May before landing the hat-trick on his reappearance last month when, back on the Borders racecourse, the mount of Craig Nichol made most of the running to see off his three rivals.
The eight-year-old will be fancied by many to record a fourth consecutive victory but in top weight The Ferry Master he faces a horse who could be capable of landing a valuable handicap chase this season.
The son of Elusive Pimpernel won two of his first four starts over fences, all in handicap novice chases, but it was his performance in last season’s Coral Scottish Grand National which suggested that the Sandy Thomson-trained gelding may be good enough to win a valuable staying handicap chase in the months ahead.
Running over a marathon trip for the first time, Sean Quinlan’s mount looked the most likely winner turning for home at Ayr, only to be outstayed in the closing stages, eventually finishing a seven and a half length fourth behind winner Mighty Thunder.
With that experience under his belt and racing off the same mark of 133, the lightly-raced eight-year-old could be a horse to follow this season, starting with a victory in this 3m 5 Class 3 handicap.
