Nick Shiambouros is back in the chair with a couple of win selections and a tasty double...


"He is the improver in the race and is fairly priced at 11/8 on the Sportsbook"

Back Speed Company at 11/8 on the Sportsbook in the 14:00 at Musselburgh


14:00 Musselburgh - Speed Company

Speed Company looks like a worthy favourite in this opening race on the card.

This Fast Company colt finished a close second to Drifting Spirit at Beverley earlier this month. He delivered a strong challenge inside the final furlong, but could not get by the more experienced winner.

He is the improver in the race and is fairly priced at 11/8 on the Sportsbook

Mark Johnston runs Mixology who put up a much improved effort last time out. The yard is humming along nicely, and it would be no surprise to see him run well.

Possible Future is an interesting debutant. This Compton Place colt cost 75,000 gns as a yearling, which is pretty high for an individual with this pedigree. He may attract support and merits consideration.

Stylish Boy ran well in defeat last time out, but I think his future lies in nurseries.


18:55 Kempton - Mirror City

Mirror City should make short work of this field.

This beautifully bred Street Cry filly finished a closing fourth on debut to Hawksmoor over this course last month. She got the hang of things two furlongs from home and ran on strongly to grab a place near the line.

Her dam Ama is by the great Storm Cat and is out of the brilliant mare Miesque. Connections will be keen to get a race out of her and boost her paddock value.

She is trading at 10/11 on the Sportsbook and I have backed her at this price.

In addition to my win bets I am going to recommend a 1pt double on both selections.
