Anita Chambers says Brijomi Queen can be given another try at Musselburgh on Friday - she has a tip in every race.

DOUBLE: Brijomi Queen and Prince Of Burma.

Brijomi Queen can boldly be given another try in the Cosmic Case Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Musselburgh.

Nicky Richards' seven-year-old was possibly a little overwhelmed at Newbury last time out when she faltered in a well-contested Listed mares' race.

Before that, though, she had looked pretty useful when charging two lengths clear over this course and distance on her hurdling bow.

The neatly-reared daughter of King's Theatre is clearly not short of boot, but would have no issues if the ground in Scotland deteriorated as she posted winning form in the mud during her bumper days.

Brijomi Queen might still have to carry a penalty for this assignment, but she should still prove a bit better than most of these.

Clever Cookie hit the bar in a maiden event last time but can enjoy better luck in the Forth One Boogie In Morning Handicap Hurdle.

He was eaten just half a length by Full Shift at Newcastle, with the winner subsequently claiming second behind a well-regarded runner at Newbury earlier in the week.

Clever Cookie made Full Shift pull out all the stops in what was a definite step up on his first attempt over hurdles, when also second at this track back in November.

Granted normal improvement, Peter Niven's charge is a thoroughly interesting contender off a mark of 115.

Palos Conti made a couple of costly jumping errors at a crucial stage on his latest outing but compensation awaits in the in the Buy Your 2014 Annual Members Badge Today Handicap Chase.

He was still in with a chance when blundering at the penultimate obstacle at Newcastle in November, while another mistake at the last truly sealed his fate.

While is he arguably better over a longer trip, Palos Conti is more than capable over this kind of distance too.

Prince Of Burma should make an honourable fist of things when he runs in the Ladbrokes Handicap at Lingfield.

Trained in Monmouthshire by the capable David Evans, the six-year-old entire has been in fair nick this winter and can revel in the step up to a mile.

Chief cause for optimism can be derived from a recent outing at the Surrey circuit, where he finished fifth in a tight seven-furlong handicap, beaten just under three lengths.

That finishing position does not tell the full story, though, as jockey David Probert said he was denied a clear run at a crucial stage before he stayed on gamely once the game was up.

Prince Of Burma has happily been left alone on a mark of 65, which could be significant as he won readily at Lingfield in November from just a 3lb lower perch.

The son of Mujadil has also struck over this course and distance in January 2012 off a mark of 81 and is clearly enjoying life with the aid of a visor.

Modernstone can turn the tables on Castilo Del Diablo in the coral.co.uk Conditions Stakes over a mile and a half.

The selection succumbed by a neck to Castilo Del Diablo over course and distance a fortnight ago, but the William Knight-trained filly is far better treated for this rematch.

Modernstone's cause was also compromised that day as jockey Andrea Atzeni was 2lb overweight.

There is almost certainly more to come from this sparingly-campaigned daughter of Duke Of Marmalade, who has shown up particularly well on her three starts at Lingfield.

Queenie's Home could be the solution to a competitive-looking renewal of the 32Red Handicap at Wolverhampton.

James Given's three-year-old was a shade unlucky to bump into the upwardly-mobile Captain Secret at Southwell earlier in the month, but she nonetheless valiantly kept on going to finish a good second.

This is not any easier, but she remains on the same mark of 73 and will appreciate travelling over a furlong farther.
