Musselburgh – Preview 3rd November 2021

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.

DO NOT DISTURB bids to extend his winning sequence to four in the feature race at Musselburgh on Wednesday.

Trained by Rose Dobbin and ridden by Craig Nichol, he is one of a quartet of declarations for the £25,000 Lothians Racing Syndicate Handicap Chase staged over a marathon distance of almost 3m 6f.

Dobbin said: “We entered at Kelso recently but we decided to come here instead. He’s been in great form at Kelso with those two wins in the spring and another on his first run of the autumn – I was actually pleasantly surprised he only went up three pounds for that latest win!”

Among the opposition to Do Not Disturb is Sandy Thomson’s top-weight The Ferry Master, who was such a gallant fourth when last seen out in April in the Scottish Grand National.

And recent Carlisle scorer Generator City will be just the second runner at the East Lothian venue for Staffordshire trainer Barry Leavy.

He is partnered by Brian Hughes as the 2019-20 champion jockey returns to the scene of his 285-1 five-timer on Saturday.
