IRISH APPROACH sets the standard with his official rating of 72 and David O'Meara's gelding will prove tough to beat if able to build on promising placed efforts at both Nottingham and Redcar. Good Measure is rated just 1lb lower and looks the obvious danger with blinkers replacing the cheekpieces, while Banner Road receives weight off that pair and could prove next best.
Prediction : 1st Irish Approach 2nd Good Measure 3rd Banner Road

LEADING COMPANY will arrive full of confidence following two recent victories at Beverley and he is fancied to strike again, despite having to shoulder a 6lb penalty for his latest success. Sweet Fortune must also carry a 6lb penalty after winning readily at Wolverhampton recently and she is a threat, along with stablemate Jim's Cracker, who wears cheekpieces for the first time.
Prediction : 1st Leading Company 2nd Sweet Fortune 3rd Jims Cracker

SIXCOR gamely won a similar contest at Ayr last time (Lord Of The Glen third and Eternal Halo fifth) and a 5lb rise in the ratings might not be enough to anchor him if arriving in the same mood. Impressor was a solid second behind subsequent winner Water Of Leith at Ayr latest and he is respected off a 2lb higher mark, while past C&D scorer Quanah cannot be ruled out either.
Prediction : 1st Sixcor 2nd Impressor 3rd Quanah

Having been narrowly denied in a 0-90 at Thirsk in July, WOBWOBWOB drops marginally in class and a similar performance could see him back into the winner's enclosure. There was little to separate Manigordo (winner) and Abduction (second) when the pair clashed earlier this month, and both are likely to be in the thick of things once more. Former C&D scorer Ramon Di Loria should appreciate the return to 7f, having finished a good third over 6f at Hamilton on his latest outing, and he's another to consider.
Prediction : 1st Wobwobwob 2nd Manigordo 3rd Abduction

16:25 Musselburgh

EMERALD LADY proved well suited by the step up in trip when winning over an extended 7f at Ffos Las earlier this month and though she has a 6lb penalty to shoulder, it looks unlikely to prevent another bold bid. Yeeeaah and Trust Bertie have been upholding a consistent level of form recently and both have the ability to feature this afternoon, while Kitty Pi, who makes her handicap debut, is one to note for market confidence.
Prediction : 1st Emerald Lady 2nd Yeeeaah 3rd Trust Bertie

A chance is taken on WILL HE DANCE, who was far from disgraced at Thirsk earlier this month. He raced freely on that occasion and will need to settle if he's to figure at the business end, but having bolted up over C&D on his penultimate outing, he could bounce back. Sophiesticate dead-heated over 1m2f at Ayr last time out and she'll hold every chance if seeing out the extra distance, while Red Bond can't be ruled out either.
Prediction : 1st Will He Dance 2nd Sophiesticate 3rd Red Bond
