Musselburgh Racecourse

Racecourse Guide

Situated approximately eight miles to the east of Edinburgh, Musselburgh is ideally positioned to take advantage of the tourist market. The sharp, right-handed gradients tend to suit nimble, speedy types, a fact that is accentuated by the decent ground, which is a regular feature of meetings here. A dual-purpose, seaside course, it attracts the best trainers from the north and many from the south too - a real Scottish gem within the community.

The Effect of the Draw

High numbers are best over 7f and a mile, and over 5f when the ground is good or faster. But when it's soft, low numbers are best over 5f. Concentrate on the top four stalls when 14+ runners over 5f (fast ground) and the bottom six stalls on soft ground.
