Today’s Tote Jackpot covers six races from Musselburgh once again, with an earlier start to the card, than the previous day. We have five races under a mile in distance, with no more than twelve runners in any of the featured races. Check out the favourites in each race, along with the GG selection in each below.

The opening race is a seven furlong race, featuring twelve runners in a class four trip. This looks to be a straightforward start for punters, with favourite Imperial Gloriana currently odds on and arrives off the back of a second, when losing by a neck at Newmarket in a class two outing.

Cognac at 5/2 offers the main threat to the favourite, finishing third on debut at this level, while Embolden looks good for a place, having picked up successive third places, with the rest at around 10/1 bar.



The next race is a five furlong charge, featuring eleven runners in a very competitive class four race, with the top six in the betting separated by just three points. Joint favourites are Lathom and Royal Brave, with the former recently bagging a win at Ayr and the latter finishing sixth in the class two Silver Trophy at RIpon.

Behind those, RPR leader Holmeswood has recently placed well in recent outings, while the original GG pick of Super Julius is now a non-runner, so Diamonique is the pick here, having finished in the first three across the last six outings, with a win surely destined soon.



The third race of this Jackpot is another five furlong trip, with nine runners involved in this class six trip. This looks to be a three horse race according to the betting, with GG pick, The Grey Zebedee the narrow favourite and coming into the race off the back of a win at Catterick last time out.

Just behind are Montalvan, who had recent success at Ripon and Kaafy who picked up a couple of runner-up spots recently, but may prefer softer conditions

The second half of this Jackpot is another seven furlong journey, with just eight runners taking on this class four race. Caustic Love is the clear favourite here, with a class three win at Ripon last time out showing why they are expected to do so well.

Maggies Angel looks the main threat here, with some strong class three performances in recent outings, while Gometra Ginty and Firsteen offer alternatives potentially.



For the penultimate race, we have a mile trip at class six level, featuring ten runners. This looks to be a two-way fight between favourite Catch My Breath who has placed well in the last three outings and GG selection Osmosis who also placed last time out in a class five trip at Beverley.

Behind those two, Jazz Hands looks to be the best of the rest, but will need a big performance to take the spoils.

GG Selection – OSMOSIS,


The final race is a two mile and two furlong race, as nine runners take on this class six trip. Clearance is the massive favourite here and has won four of their last five outings, including a class five at Ripon last time out.

Not much is expected in terms of challenge, although the GG selection is second favourite Kitty’s Cove who has placed well in recent runs, including this very course last month and generally looks the most likely to offer a threat.

GG Selection – KITTY’S COVE
