Lay Mulwith @ 3.45 in the 14:30 at Musselburgh

Back Harwoods Volante @ 3.505/2 in the 14:40 at Leicester

Back Gworm each-way @ 8.415/2 in the 16:00 at Musselburgh

Kicking off with our lay of the day in the 14:30 at Musselburgh, where Mulwith has drifted from 2.915/8 out to 3.45. She ran a good second last time out over course and distance getting the run of the race and has been raised 1lb for that performance. Today represents a different challenge though with Kilbaha Lady reopposing with a 2lb reversal in weights and only twp lengths to find. Money has come for Our Charlie Brown who has showed promise and makes her handicap debut. This looks less than straightforward for Mulwith and we are more than happy to take her on.


Our back of the day comes in the 14:40 at Leicester, where David O'Meara's Harwoods Volante has been backed from a high of 4.3100/30 into 3.55/2. An eye-catching jockey booking of the in-form Jim Crowley is sure to catch punters' attention as he looks to notch another winner up in his quest for the jockeys' title. Harwoods Volante, who has dropped back to a winnable mark of 77, failed to settle last time out but ran on to finish strongly showing there is still plenty of ability and this looks a competitive but winnable race for the five-year-old.


Our each-way selection of the day comes from the 16:00 at Musselburgh where Gworn could out run his price of 8.415/2 after being matched at a high of 14.013/1. He has dropped to a mark of 77, 4lbs lower than his last winning mark and has a smart claimer in the form of Garry Whillans up on board who takes off a valuable 5lbs. The selection was far from disgraced in his last run at Ayr over 10f where he was beaten by some smart types and a repeat of that run would be sure to put him in the mix. The drop back in trip is sure to play to his strengths as he seemed to weaken close home after doing plenty too early last time out.
