Alan Thompson takes over the column again today and starts with an old campaigner at Musselburgh and a short priced lightly raced selection that could be very good at Brighton...


"Off a mark 2lb lower than when scoring at a tasty 16/1 at Ayr."

The 12-year-old Camerooney drops in class today into a 0-70 company and has to have a chance on these terms. He just gets in here as the top weight but is still off a mark 2lb lower than when scoring at a tasty 16/1 at Ayr, in class 3 company over the same trip and ground as today last September. Also, pleased to see Nathan Alison back in the saddle today, who has won on him four times.

He is a front runner who should find this smaller field to his advantage, it the price that is the most appealing (or at least was at 8/1 now 6/1 on the Sportsbook). I didn't think there was much between Camerooney and Sir Lancelot and yet the selection is double the price.

I accept he has yet to put his best foot forward this campaign but he seems to enjoy Musselburgh where three of his 11 wins have been registered. He has already been supported in the market but at the prices still available on the Exchange and in a wide open handicap, I think he is worth taking a chance on here.


16:20 Brighton - Star Asset @ even money on the Sportsbook

Not keen on putting up horses at these prices but Star Asset looked every bit the star when eased down by George Baker to win impressively at Epsom just over a week ago. The style of the win wasn't missed by the handicapper who put the gelding up 6lb for that success, but he looked a "proper" horse and is clearly progressive. This lightly raced gelding should be able to defy today's penalty and go in again in this company!

Jim Crowley who gets the leg up today is no stranger to Star Asset, although his only ride on him so far seen him finish last of six at Lingfield, however that was in listed company where he was sent off the 33/1 outsider, back in this class he should be good enough to register his third win in four outings today.
