Musselburgh – Preview 17th September 2023

Gordon Brown – Race Reporter

Gordon has a wealth of experience of racing through his background in the written and broadcast media. His current principle role is reporting and supporting the scene in Scotland on Racing TV and relaying the latest news with Scottish angles.

YORKINDNESS is after her fifth win of the campaign in the £20,000 Musselburgh Gold Cup, which is staged over nearly  two miles.

Charlie Johnston’s filly started the season on a BHA rating of 66 but, including the penalty for her recent strike at York, she effectively races off a mark of 81 on Sunday.

Her rivals include stable companion Haizoom, who was formerly trained by now-retired Keith Dalgleish, and top-weight Its Good To Laugh from the Staffordshire yard of Jennie Candlish.

The other feature contest is the British EBF 40th Anniversary Fillies’ Conditions Stakes for two-year-olds.

Indispensable, owned and bred by Cheveley Park Stud, is an interesting raider from the Newmarket stable of William Haggas.

She was third behind a subsequent Royal Ascot-placed winner on her debut in the spring and has since been pipped by only a neck in a Listed event at Naas in July.
