Keith Hamer makes Tarboosh his best bet of the day at Musselburgh on Monday - he has a selection for every race in the UK and Ireland.

Tarboosh can recoup losses from exactly a year ago by winning the Breeders Backing Racing EBF Flying Scotsman Conditions Stakes at Musselburgh.

Paul Midgley's sprinter was beaten into second place by Captain Colby when sent off the evens favourite for this five-furlong dash last October.

All will be forgiven if the six-year-old can do the business this time round.

His form of late has been good, with a win at Beverley followed by a nose defeat in a three-horse affair at Leicester.

Very few sprint handicappers have been busier than B Fifty Two, who has had no fewer than 24 races in 2019.

Marjorie Fife's 10-year-old rarely runs a bad race and can chalk up a third success of the year in the Follow RacingTV @racingtv On Twitter Handicap.

Dual course winner Medalla De Oro can strike back at Windsor in the Ben Woollacott Memorial Handicap.

The form of the five-year-old, trained by Tom Clover, has been a bit in and out this season, but there have definitely been some bright moments.

An all-the-way winner at Chester in July, Medalla De Oro ran a fine race on the Roodee when fourth a month ago. The 10 furlongs clearly suits and he should put up a good show.

Be More is less exposed than most of her rivals and any natural improvement can see her go close in the Sky Sports Racing On Virgin 535 Fillies' Handicap.

Andrew Balding's filly has had just the six career starts, winning twice this campaign at Goodwood and Chester.

Freshwater Cliffs has improved plenty from his first to his third race and can continue the trend by opening his account in the Palm Court Hotel Of Great Yarmouth Nursery at the Norfolk seaside track.

The Richard Hughes-trained juvenile should be a force to be reckoned with on his first venture in handicap company, after finishing two-lengths second of 10 to Cobber Kain at Chelmsford late last month.

The son of Canford Cliffs relished the step up to seven furlongs and his second go at that distance can see him get his head in front - with the jockey booking of Ryan Moore an obvious positive.

Uzincso has shown enough promise in his three starts to suggest he can make his mark in handicaps after gaining all his experience so far on the all-weather.

The Mayson gelding gets his first opportunity in that sphere in the Optimist Design Limited Handicap, on what looks a workable rating of 68.

John Butler's charge caught the eye when making good late progress to take third place in a 12-runner maiden at Kempton a month ago.

Fares Poet has run respectably on both his visits to date at Wolverhampton and can finally register a first career success at the 10th attempt in the Visit attheraces.com Handicap.

Marco Botti's three-year-old found only Pytilia too good at Lingfield last time and a repeat of that effort can see the Poet's Voice colt go one better.
