Bets Of The Day: Easterby to enjoy more success at Musselburgh

Sprinters in close finish
Alan has two bets for the day's action at Newcastle and Musselburgh

It's Newcastle and Musselburgh for Alan Dudman on Tuesday, and he is banking on a sprinter returning to form in a big way.....

"There are two confirmed front-runners in the field, and that should suit Tim Easterby's sprinter, as he seems best when chasing a bit of speed."

Back Computable @ 4.2016/5 in the 15:25 at Musselburgh

Attraction can return to winning ways in north east

13:40 Newcastle - Back Instant Attraction @ 8.07/1

It's been quite a while since Jedd O'Keeffe's Instant Attraction won a race, but he's handicapped to strike at present and is worth backing at decent odds of 8.07/1.

Last year he competed in some good handicaps, but couldn't find any sort of form. In fact he started out racing in 2017 from a mark of 99, therefore today's figure of 78 makes plenty of appeal.

His latest run came after a wind op, and he shaped well behind Party Fears Too in a competitive race over course and distance. He possibly might have been inconvenienced by racing over the far side, but he was only beaten by half a length.

The trainer's horses are running reasonably well too.

Easterby sprinter set for a going day?

15:25 Musselburgh - Back Computable @ 4.2016/5

I've not exactly had a good time of it lately with weather forecasts in Scotland. A couple of backs this week at Hamilton and Ayr have not gone according to plan, so I am sticking with good to firm ground on Tuesday - and that's exactly what Computable needs.

He's very in-and-out, but then sprinters can be. He holds a perfectly symmetrical record this season of three good runs and three bad ones.

The bad came last time at Chester when he dropped away quite quickly, but he was a winner on his previous start at Chester - and that was a slightly stronger grade than today's. He also finished second last year in a 0-95.

There are two confirmed front-runners in the field, and that should suit Tim Easterby's sprinter, as he seems best when chasing a bit of speed.
