Forecast

El Astronaute (9/2), Major Jumbo (6/1), Move In Time (8/1), Copper Knight (8/1), Line Of Reason (8/1), Dark Shot (12/1), Fendale (12/1), Orion's Bow (12/1), Merhoob (12/1), Caspian Prince (16/1), Orvar (16/1), El Hombre (20/1), Soie D'leau (20/1), Batten The Hatches (20/1), Mayleaf Shine (25/1), Ornate (25/1), Excessable (33/1)

Verdict
A staggeringly competitive feature race at Musselburgh but one thing is for certain; if you blink you'll miss it. Any number enter the reckoning including the old York rivals El Astronaute, Dark Shot and Major Jumbo, with the last named perhaps the marginal pick of that trio under the capable hands of Nicola Currie. Paul Midgley saddles three runners and unbelievably the 2017 scorer Line Of Reason isn't necessarily the stable number one despite racing from a 7lb lower mark today. However, well take aim at the very capable ORION'S BOW. He's well treated again nowadays and a force to be reckoned with when on song, as demonstrated back in the summer of 2016.
  1. Orion's Bow
  2. Major Jumbo
  3. Soie D'leau
