NAP OF THE DAY: Chief Brody, (1400 Lingfield), 1pt win, 3/1 generally available
As rarely seen as his namesake’s shark nemesis, but equally deadly. Sauntered to a win on his sole start on last season, and started this one with an excellent second at Warwick. The first and third, and even the tenth home that day have won since, and this softer surface should hold no fears based on that heavy ground win earlier in the year. Should be very hard to beat.
Nendrum, (1215 Musselburgh), 7/4: his two lifetime hurdle wins have come making all at this track. Was all set to do so again when tipping up two from home here last week. Runs off the same mark today. Plenty of money around for some of the long shots here have helped keep this form book certainty at a reasonable price.
Chain Of Beacons, (1345 Musselburgh), 7/1: veteran Civil Unrest would look good here but for favourite Ontopoftheworld. Both like to dominate and it may be worth chancing that they will do each other no favours. Monsieur Co is priced as though he will be the one to pick up the pieces, but there may be merit in forgiving Chain Of Beacons a below par effort last time as on his previous run he would look well in here. The more early pace on the better.
Arthurs Secret, (1445 Musselburgh), 6/1: Trainer Harry Whittington is highly admired in these quarter and his promising Court Liability looks a big threat here. But like many from this yard he looks a little tight in the market given nearly a year off. Arthurs Secret comes here off the back of a fine run at Ayr and can be the one to profit if the favourite fails to back up his short price.
