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.

Brian Hughes and Donald McCain will be hoping their good run continues at Musselburgh on Tuesday with Barrichello in the feature race.

The top-weight faces four rivals under 11st 10lb in the £12,000 Fitzdares Novices’ Limited Handicap Chase.

Hughes said: “Donald always sends a box-load up and he always seems to do well. Most of the horses enjoy going from the front and it is a track that suits that type o running style.”

Barrichello has stern opposition from Notlongtillmay, Parliament Hill and Damond State, who are all last-time-out winners.
