511-12OR: 120CD
12/1

Game sort, with a course record which reads 1,3,4,1; struggled in a Listed race at Market Rasen (2m, good) on seasonal return and now competes in an added tongue-tie; softer ground is probably ideal; looks to be high enough in the weights.

5/1

Landed the hat-trick when edging out Little Stevie by 1L at Kelso (2m, good) last month; subsequent weights rise is offset by Danny McMenamin's 7lb allowance; conditions ideal, so should go close.

11/4

Won on the Flat here in July (2m), and this track suits his run style (prominent racer). However, hasn't won over hurdles since his novice days in 2017, albeit his mark is slowly easing.

811-8OR: 116CD
28/1

Has progressed markedly since foaling in a career break between July 2016 and November 2017, winning five of her eight starts for Otterburn trainer Susan Corbett; versatile conditions wise (has form with Golden Jeffrey).

16/1

Stayed on strongly when breaking his duck at the 16th attempt at Kelso (2m, good) on his penultimate start, but was beaten almost 11L (fifth) by today's rival Iolani next time, and the weights turnaround isn't enough.

511-0OR: 108
28/1

Has shown improvement for the fitting of a hood, and although no match for the ready winner Noah And The Ark (runs earlier) at Kelso (2m, good) last month, did offer some hope for the future; handicap debut.

410-12OR: 106
50/1

Stablemate of An Fear Ciuin; sold for £8,500 by Harry Fry after finishing second at Worcester (2m maiden) in August, but lacked fluency on stable debut at Kelso latest, finishing two places and 4½L behind today's rival Zamarkhan.

910-8OR: 102CD
28/1

Pulled up after racing with too much early zest when last in competitive action at Perth (2m) in July; 2lb above his last winning mark (C&D) and will handle these conditions well; market potentially helpful.

310-2OR: 112D
11/10

Converted what on paper looked to be a penalty kick when a 6L winner of a Sedgefield (2m1f, good) juvenile on debut for Keith Dalgleish; pitched in against her elders for handicap debut, but noteworthy on quick ground at this sharp track.

Betting

Forecast

Chica Buena (11/10), Golden Jeffrey (11/4), Iolani (5/1), Kelpies Myth (12/1), An Fear Ciuin (16/1), Wot A Shot (28/1), Zamarkhan (28/1), Morning With Ivan (28/1), Astute Boy (50/1)

Verdict

On another day, you'd perhaps be fearful for CHICA BUENA pitched in against her elders on handicap debut, but assuming that Musselburgh misses the worst of the rain pushing in from the west (likely), the Keith Dalgleish-trained filly could prove capable of making all of the running under her lightweight. The four-timer seeking Iolani rates as the chief danger, whilst the returning Wot A Shot is always worthy of consideration at this track.
