Sunday's Musselburgh Horse Racing Betting Tips and Odds

17:15 – Dark Jedi 8/1
18:15 – Toimy Son
18:45 – Silky Wilkie

17:15 – Dark Jedi 8/1

There will not be many better-handicapped horses running all weekend than Dark Jedi, who contests the 1m4½f handicap. 

This time last year Dark Jedi was rated 99 and running in much better races than this.

There was enough encouragement from his return third at Thirsk to suggest he can go close off a 2lb lower mark of 75, though, with the runaway winner going on to record a near 10-length victory at Ripon this week. 

Dark Jedi is eight now and may take more getting fit than was the case in his younger days, so I’d expect the run to have brought him forward.

He goes on any surface and has solid credentials for Tim Easterby.   

18:15 – Toimy Son 5/1

Toimy Son is another well-treated sort running at Musselburgh and goes in the 7f handicap.

This five-year-old, who ran in a Group 1 juvenile on Arc weekend for former connections, was rated 108 when he joined David Menuisier last April and has slipped to mark of 91.

However, just like Dark Jedi he has been running in much better races than this one and shaped well when third on his comeback off a reduced rating.

Toimy Son was sent off an unconsidered 22/1 shot in that all-weather affair, yet still managed to notch his best Racing Post Rating since joining Menuisier, and the trainer isn’t one to waste his long journeys north.

The selection will be his first runner at Musselburgh and should have a class edge here if building on that effort.

18:45 – Silky Wilkie 5/1

It is no bad thing to be drawn high and by the stands’ side rail in 5f sprints at Musselburgh and Silky Wikie (stall 16) gets the vote in the concluding cavalry charge.

Silky Wilkie relished this place when scoring by nearly four lengths off this mark from a similar draw around a year ago, and went close at Bath last time despite not appearing to be in love with the heavy ground.

He possesses plenty of pace, having almost landed an Epsom Dash off a higher rating last summer, and 7lb claimer Sam Feilden has built a good association with him.

The five-year-old could be at a tactical advantage here and looks overwhelmingly the one to beat for Karl Burke now he is back in form.
