Sunday’s Musselburgh racing tips: Pearl and Jewel are the golden combination

Planet Sport tipsters have picked out three of the hottest selections ahead of a big day’s racing at Musselburgh on Sunday, June 5.

Here's a quick run through the selections and a few words about why the tipsters have given them the nod. 

You can get all the racecards and results from Musselburgh in the Planet Sport live centre.

17:45 Musselburgh - Pearl Glory

Pearl Glory can take full advantage of a small drop in class with victory in the Sky Bet Sunday Series Queen Of Scots Stakes at Musselburgh.

Kevin Philippart de Foy was pretty shrewd in snapping up this Cotai Glory filly for just £12,000 at the breeze-ups last June, with Pearl Glory winning her first two starts - prompting Team Valor and Gary Barber to purchase her privately.

Pearl Glory made quite the start in her new colours, chasing home Romantic Time in a Salisbury Group Three and while she disappointed on her final juvenile run, she showed that to be just a minor blip as she again found only one too good at Group Three level on her return.

Lola Showgirl had her measure by three-quarters of a length at Lingfield, but Pearl Glory made late progress from well off the pace against a rival who already had a run under her belt.

The handicapper has hiked her 10lb for that effort and a repeat should surely be good enough in this Listed heat.

16:45 Musselburgh - Sacred Jewel

Sacred Jewel lines up in the Sky Bet Sunday Series 3YO Sprint Handicap off a mark of 75 and that could prove pretty generous.

Beaten just over three lengths by subsequent Group race scorer Zain Claudette on her racecourse bow last July, Sacred Jewel failed to sparkle in one subsequent start for Charlie Appleby, with Godolphin opting to offload her for 95,000 guineas in February.

Julie Camacho now houses this daughter of Dubawi, who is out of Temple Stakes winner Priceless - a pedigree that is certainly not to be sneezed at.

Fitted with a hood on her stable bow, Sacred Jewel made short work of her Leicester rivals last month, with an official margin of two and a half lengths not really doing justice to the style of her victory.

She kicks off her handicap career now and is impossible to ignore.

16:16 Musselburgh - Fashion Advice

Fashion Advice posted a fine second on her return from over a year on the sidelines at Carlisle last week.

She set out to make all over five furlongs but was just reeled in towards the finish, going down by half a length but showing plenty of promise.

If she can avoid the bounce factor, the Sky Bet Sunday Series Apprentice Handicap could produce her first win since last April.
