Musselburgh is one of the premier racetracks in Scotland and we carry the latest betting information, race cards and odds. Racing has been staged there since 1777 and it stages both Flat and National Hunt racing, making it a staple of the betting calendar. It’s biggest meeting in terms of attendance is the Ladies’ Day in June which always attracts a sell-out crowd of 7,000 and the advice is to book early.
Front Runners Make the Best Betting
A right-handed track, Musselburgh is level throughout and on the sharp side. It suits a long-striding galloping type and front-runners have an excellent record. Extremes of going are rare as the track drains well, while the fences can be tricky. You can find up to date race cards and betting information to help you make the right bet, at the best odds, but if you’re still stuck, we also have tips from Sky Sports Alex Hammond.
Key Names Odds On
In Flat racing Musselburgh is targeted by all the major Flat yards. Richard Fahey and Mark Johnston are the leading trainers ahead of Jim Goldie, Keith Dalgleish and David O’Meara. However several leading southern yards target the more valuable races at the track including William Haggas and Ed Dunlop.
Joe Fanning is by some way the top Flat jockey at the course ahead of Graham Lee, Tom Eaves, Paul Hanagan and Philip Makin.
The Donald McCain-Jason Maguire team have enjoyed plenty of success in the winter and are the leading National Hunt trainer and jockey respectively.
Lucinda Russell, Brian Ellison, John Ferguson and Jim Goldie are other trainers with good strike-rates at the track while Brian Hughes, James Reveley, Wilson Renwick and Lucy Alexander enjoy plenty of success in the saddle.
