Top tipster Andrew Mount has three bets at Musselburgh and Bath on Friday
LONGROOM – 3.25 Musselburgh
LONGROOM wasn’t beaten far when fourth to subsequent winner Quanah at Newcastle on his comeback and, like most from his yard, should come on for that. He looked to be going best of all just over a furlong and still hadn’t been asked for maximum effort, unlike the three who finished in front of him. He picked up again when asked, going down by about a length and a more positive ride can see him back to winning ways in the 5f Join Racing Tv Now Handicap at Musselburgh (3.25). He’s only had two runs for Paul Midgley, winning the first of them (at Newcastle), and looks dangerously well handicapped on the form he showed for Noel Wilson. He was rated 86 as recently as August 2018 an runs off just 63 today. Odds-on favourite Gowanbuster, a comfortable course and distance winner on his latest start and the likely pace angle against the nearside rail, will be a tough nut to crack but his three previous wins were all followed by a defeat.
GINGER MAX – 4.00 Musselburgh
GINGER MAX improved for gelding and wind surgery over the winter, returning with a Yarmouth win in a fast time despite the track not favouring the patient tactics he employed that day. He went up just 3lb for that half-length victory and duly followed up at Redcar by a much bigger margin. His hat-trick bid ended in disaster at Thirsk after David Nolan rushed him round the outside to lead against the inside rail where the ground was deepest. He faded into fourth and was subsequently disqualified for failing to weigh in. He’ll be happier with a lead and should get one from habitual pacesetter How Bizarre in the 7f Class 5 handicap (4.00)
ZAC BROWN – 6.05 Bath
They went off too fast in the 6f Class 5 handicap won by Rewaayat at Lingfield on June 27th, setting the race up for the finishers. Runner-up Cappananty Con, best of those to chase the early pace, won at Bath next time and the fourth from that race – ZAC BROWN – is taken to repeat the trick. The 20-1 shot only lost second place in the last 50 yards and is 1lb below his last winning mark.
