Been a great time to follow the blog recently with 3 wins from the last 3 posts at 33/1, 16/1 & 8/1, just the one today that could bounce back at a price.
2.40 5f Class 4 Handicap – Nicki’s Angel 12/1
There’s a couple I like in this at big prices, Economic Crisis looks well treated, she won this race in 2016 off a mark of 75, she’s a little longer in the tooth now at the age of 10, but around this time last year won a good race at Ayr easily off 70 and was rated 75 at her highest, a losing run of 16 races since seen her mark plummet to a low 54 where she took full advantage of not just her mark but also of the summer months which clearly brings her best form, she won very easily at Catterick in June and when last seen was even more impressive when making all over this C&D off a mark of 58 with the 6+ lengths back in 4th winning NTO boosting the form, she goes up 8lb effectively for this race, 6lb rise plus is 2lbs out of the handicap to race off 66 which on last seasons best performances she’s still well in, in great form and looks a juicy price to win this race again.
At an even bigger price is Nicki’s Angel, she won on debut over this C&D last year and ran some good races in some hot Listed and Group company to be rated 90, she’s returned this season well below form and has been beat decisively in all 6 races where she’s now dropped to a very appealing mark of 75, she gets the aid of a first time visor which may spark her past 2yo form plus is the first time over this C&D since her win.
Trainer Richard Fahey is in decent form at present, he excels with his sprinters plus has a good record at Musselburgh with a 18% strike rate compared to his average of 12% and has a great +£26.80 level stake profit, he has a good set of chances here today, most notably half sister to Nicki’s Angel, Maggies Angel runs in the 3.40 and may tempt you to a small muggy double.
