Timeform offer a runner-by-runner guide to an interesting nursery at Musselburgh...
The speedy La Sylphe will be well suited by this track and is just preferred to Chasing Dreams and Bispham Green in what looks a competitive nursery...
Chasing Dreams got off mark at the second time of asking in 5f Catterick maiden late last month, easing clear to beat Megaleka 4 lengths. Definitely more to come from this one.
Scentpastparadise Won a Beverley maiden at the end of July and followed up in a 6f Redcar nursery. Ran no sort of race in valuable sales at York last time but this a more realistic assignment
Lady Poppy won a Catterick maiden in June and a York nursery in July (both 5f). Respectable fourth at Thirsk on penultimate start and not disgraced in face of stiff task last time.
Bispham Green is yet to win but progressed steadily since contesting nurseries, runner-up for the third start running when going down by only ½ lengths to The Taj at Ascot (5f) last time. Should go well again.
Rhagori Aur was a decisive winner on debut in 5f Thirsk maiden. Not built on that since, though set a couple of stiff tasks along the way and latest fourth at Beverley shows she can be competitive in nurseries.
Done Dreaming was well backed when winning 5f maiden at Ayr in late July and put a disappointing run in a Thirsk claimer behind him when landing a C&D seller last time. This harder but still can't rule out
La Sylphe was much improved when making a winning nursery debut on AW at Southwell (5f) last month and solid placed efforts on turf since, headed only close home when ½-length second at Newcastle last time.
Lady Calantha has been well held in 3 maidens for Richard Hannon but showed she has some ability when 1¼ lengths second of 5 to Done Dreaming in a C&D seller last time. Will need to step up on that to take this, though.
