Musselburgh Racing Tips: Plus Point a horse to keep on side

Musselburgh
The Sunday Series returns at Musselburgh on Sunday

Timeform's Andrew Asquith highlights a Nap, Next Best and Each Way selection at Musselburgh on Sunday.

  • An Musselburgh Nap, Next Best and Each Way from Timeform


Musselburgh Nap - 17:15 - Back Plus Point

Plus Point didn't trouble the judge on her first three starts in maiden and novice company, but she proved a totally different proposition when opening her account on handicap debut at Newbury last summer, still a little rough around the edges but having plenty in hand.

She beat a next-time-out winner on that occasion and she followed up in even more impressive fashion at Brighton on her final start in September, having no problem with heavy ground, while also relishing the step up to a mile and a half. That form also has a strong look to it and Plus Point is a horse to follow this season, well up to winning more races following an 8 lb rise.

Musselburgh Next Best - 17:45 - Back Individualism

Individualism is a half-brother to the same connections' top-class stayer Subjectivist and he showed fairly useful form without winning last season.

He was well found in the market in each of his four runs in minor company last year, his best effort coming when runner-up to a useful rival at Ayr, and that form also worked out well.

Individualism again travelled strongly through his race but didn't find the improvement expected at Newmarket on his final start, but that was a good race, and he surely has more to offer as a three-year-old now moving into handicaps and stepping up to a mile.

Back Individualism @ 3.185/40 on Betfair Exchange

Musselburgh Each Way - 18:45 - Back Jm Jungle

Jm Jungle is a near-smart handicapper who has a consistent profile and won back-to-back handicaps over five furlongs at Haydock and Goodwood last summer before going on to hit the frame in some top-end sprint handicaps afterwards.

He also enjoyed a fruitful time in Bahrain earlier this year, not beaten too far by his stablemate Brazen Bolt in a Grade 3 in January and proving better than ever when resuming winning ways back in handicap company in February.

Jm Jungle won with plenty in hand on that occasion, and the handicapper has left him on the same mark as when last running in a handicap in this country, which may prove lenient given the improvement he showed last time.

Back Jm Jungle @ 6.611/2 on Betfair Exchange
