17:05 (Musselburgh) Sunday Soldier

Sunday Soldier has been steamrollering her way through mares’ and novices’ company and has a five-timer in her sights in the Go North Lady Buttons Mares’ Hurdle Series Final.

The six-year-old kicked off her winning spree over just short of two miles at Musselburgh in December, adding another course-and-distance success in January before making a swift reappearance and slight leap in trip to follow up at Sedgefield.

She was 7lb well in that day but showed her revised mark of 106 was still highly workable when winning a Doncaster qualifier for this by 10 lengths.

Sunday Soldier has a further 8lb to contend with here and a longer two-and-a-half-mile trip, but she is firmly on an upward curve and having proven her ability to handle testing ground, another victory does not look beyond her.


17:40 (Musselburgh) Teorie

Teorie can take top honours in the Go North Grey Bomber Juvenile Hurdle Series Final.

Fergal O’Brien’s charge was a Flat winner for Jim Bolger last year before joining his current team and making a winning hurdles bow when hacking up in a qualifier for this contest at Catterick back in December.

He then headed to Musselburgh for another qualifier under a penalty, although that run ended with a disappointing fourth as his jumping was not so slick and he drifted across the track in the finish.

Teorie then took on older rivals at Southwell, where he secured a convincing victory, but the Fred Winter at the Festival proved a step too far and this lesser company can see him get back on track.


18:10 (Musselburgh) Call Me Harry

Call Me Harry has a fine Musselburgh strike rate that can be further enhanced in the Go North Brindisi Breeze Hurdle Series Final.

Winner of two of his four starts at the track, he did not sparkle on his most recent spin in February when his jumping let him down a bit, but he cannot be dismissed lightly.


19:40 (Musselburgh) Reflection Of You

Reflection Of You makes debut under rules. Winning point to pointer who could prove an exciting prospect for connections in the Racing Post Mares' Open National Hunt Flat Race.

Jewel Of Windsor travels from Ireland delivering first start under rules. Expected to be firmly in the mix.

Sagonige won at Sedgefield on debut in December. Interesting as brings the advantage of racecourse experience.

Beau Della holds each-way claims on racecourse debut. Watch market for best guide.
