Musselburgh Racing Tips: Hat-trick beckons for Dr Shirocco

Andrew Asquith outlines the Timeform view at Musselburgh

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap and Next Best selection at Musselburgh on Monday...

Musselburgh Nap - 14:55 - Back Dr Shirocco

Dr Shirocco belatedly opened his account under Rules despite being 3 lb out of the handicap at Hexham in June and he came out on top again on his return from five months off over two and a half miles at this course last month.

There was an opportunistic element to that success - avoided the worst of the melee at the second and then helped by an errant rival at the business end - but he deserves credit for making up so much ground in the straight and he is taken to defy a 3 lb rise and complete a hat-trick.

Back Dr Shirocco @ 9/25.50 on Betfair Sportsbook

Musselburgh Next Best - 13:55 - Back Hello Judge

Hello Judge was a lightly-raced winner over hurdles and he stepped up on his reappearance run when opening his account over fences at Carlisle in October, displaying a good attitude as he rallied in the closing stages to regain the lead.

He didn't see his race out at Newcastle last time having looked a big threat early in the straight, but this represents an easier task, and he is well worth another chance to confirm himself still on a good mark.

Back Hello Judge @ 7/42.75 on Betfair Sportsbook
