Our top tipster has taken aim at the nine-race card at Musselburgh on Wednesday which will be shown live on Racing TV.

1.30 Musselburgh: Yukon Mission at 3-1 with Sky Bet

Now a non-runner

This horse went into everyone’s notebook last time out at Pontefract when getting persistently stopped in his run and definitely lost more ground and momentum greater than the distance he was beaten.

He was well backed that day, so was clearly expected to go well on his first run on turf and has a very good chance to make amends here off the same mark.

He hasn’t had the best luck with the draw, but given it seems likely there will be plenty of pace on the inside, he should be able to slot in and hopefully lightening will not strike twice as he tries to get through.

2.00 Musselburgh: Lady Calcaria at a general 9-4

Lady Calcaria has a good draw in stall two for a horse who likes to race up with the pace and has definitely given signs her turn is near.

She needed her first two runs this season and was drawn in the car park on her third outing, but in a higher grade than this last time, she ran really well and battled all the way to the line after being prominent.

She has run well over a stiff 6f at both Pontefract and Carlisle in the past and her pedigree, with winning relatives at this trip and further, suggests it may be ideal. Not many of her rivals appear to be in the best form and she is my bet of the day for her in-form yard.

3.30 Musselburgh: Glory Fighter at 9-2 with SkyBet and BetVictor

This is a sprinter in fine form from a yard in equally good form and, although he has horses in a similar vein to beat here, I am going to stay loyal.

Glory Fighter was thought good enough to compete in Group Three events for his previous yard and it looks as though he could climb further yet, even if he never proves up to that standard.

He beat a horse who had also hit form in good style at Chester last time out and can complete the hat-trick.
