Betting Tip: Strait Of Magellan @ 5/4 with bet365

Racing looks sure to go ahead at Musselburgh this afternoon with the going at the Scottish track not quite as bad as elsewhere.

The seven-race card has attracted a good turnout too with a field of ten set to go to post for the opening maiden hurdle (due off 12.20pm). All bar two have experience over hurdles and the best of these may be Lac Leman, who showed a decent level of form when with Paul Nicholls and is making his first start for Pauline Robson here.

However, he can take a keen hold and, besides, will do well to cope with the Nicky Richards-trained newcomer STRAIT OF MAGELLAN. A dual winner for Michael Bell in the flat with a peak rating of 82, he changed hands for 58,000gns in the autumn and looks the type to do well over hurdles. His wins came at Bath and Catterick, both sharp sharp tracks, so Musselburgh ought to suit him and he is proven on ground with plenty of cut in it.
