Musselburgh and Market Rasen
Three runners today – but only two potential winners as Next Edition and Rocky Two do battle against each other in the first race at Market Rasen this afternoon. Both have chances in quite a competitve little race – Rocky is hard to win with but has the ability, and Eddie is returning from 3 years off over hurdles but seems to have enjoyed his schooling and we will be nervously watching our little white tailed pocket rocket and hope both of the jump round safely.
Up at Musselburgh Phil has taken ‘Wemyss Point’ for his bumper debut in a now 6 runner field, not many runners no doubt due to the quick ground , but he should appreciate it as he has a fast ground action, and although he is quite a green horse, he should stay well and is fit enough for his debut. Whatever happens though, Phil feels he will come on a lot mentally for the outing as he is not always fully switched on yet – he has taken time but is a good looking well bred son of Champs Elysees out of an unraced daughter of Oaks winner Wemyss Bight. We couldnt have afforded him as a yearling!
