Race of the Day – 19:55 Musselburgh
We go to Musselburgh for today’s Race of the Day and a five furlong nursery handicap with just the five runners.
The current odds range from 5/2 to 11/2 for the five runners which shows how open a contest this is.
The Speed Ratings have the Mark Johnston trained Love Oasis on top although he hasn’t finished better than fourth so far in his career from six races. Johnston does have course form though with 20% of his runners winning here over the past five years.
Lawless Louis shows up easily the best on the Instant Expert tab with green on going, class and distance. He also has amber in the field column and has the highest official rating, therefore he is definitely one to take note of.
From the pace tab it looks like there could be a possibility that they all fly out of the stalls and go hell for leather. With just five runners there shouldn’t be an issue with position so it has the potential to be a really exciting race. If there is a particular horse that does have the pace to lead on their own then the stats show that leading has a definite advantage.
The Heat Map and Draw/Run Style Combinations confirms what we have already ascertained, and that is leading or being right there is imperative if you are to have a chance of winning here.
For a race that has just the five runners this is incredibly open and a case can be made for each of them, therefore unless something really stands out for you, tread carefully.
