Fergie time at Muss' with improving filly

Back Chealamy @ 4/1 in the 16:45 at Musselburgh

James Ferguson has broken through the barrier of having one or two nicer horses into the next tier highlighted by Canberra Legend's recent victory at Newmarket, and he looks to have a potentially improving filly lining up at Musselburgh.

The card in Scotland is the best on offer today with the Sunday Series and his Chealamy shaped well on her recent return at Southwell in 0-85 company.

She improved herself from her three starts as a juvenile, and bumped into a big improver for Charlie Appleby, as Mountain Song, a well bred daughter of Sea The Stars won from a generous mark of 79.

While the pace was more on the even side for that Southwell race, the race finish speed of 104% wasn't quite as strong as she needed, especially with the way she picked up late on under no more than a hands and heels ride.

I am hoping the good ground suits too, as she travelled like a horse with a fair bit of ability last season at Leicester when the ground was on the decent side.

Indeed, from her 2yo days she ran in some fair races and I would be disappointed if she couldn't exploit her mark of 78 today.

Ferguson is currently 8-18 at 44% with a level stakes return of +7.00 in the last month and it's not exactly a negative booking Billy Loughnane and his 5lb claim.

Back Gincident @ 15/4 in the 17:45 at Musselburgh

The handicaps are certainly well stocked today and it's a pleasure to view a market that doesn't have a 1/4 favourite (hello Punchestown).

I'm pushed towards Richard Fahey's Gincident - a horse I put up for the column last time, and I thought ran really well.

He ran in the Royal Mile Handicap last time at Musselburgh to finish second, and while he was put in his place behind Charlie Johnston's Finn's Charm, it was an excellent run considering the winner had some smart form as a 2yo and also ran in the Chesham.

Indeed, Finn's Charm made the running on a card and day that very much suited front-runners, and Gincident put enough daylight between himself and the rest of the field behind him to keep him onside. There were a batch of 87 and a 94 rated horse behind him, so that was a fine effort.

I'm very surprised he has been left unchanged on a mark of 82, very surprised. He improved over the winter on the All-Weather and still looks a horse on the upgrade in handicap company.

Fahey could be in better form with just two winners in the last fortnight at just 6%, but he's a trainer that has a lot of numbers running, and he's had a winner at Musselburgh this term.
