Today's tips come from York and Musselburgh.

I was not even close yesterday, but regular followers will understand my frustration at seeing Euchen Glen win the Old Borough Cup as I have backed Jim Goldie’s runner at big prices THREE times this season!!!

York Tip

14:00 – 6f Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Garrowby Stakes (Listed)

DAKOTA GOLD (NAP – 1 point win bet at 5/2) has won four of his six starts at York, including this race last year, and warmed up for this by landing the Listed Beverley Bullet Stakes last time out. That marked a return to form for this talented Michael Dods-trained sprinter, but he had lined up in some strong Group 3s earlier in the season. Connor Beasley gets on so well with this horse and has an excellent record when teaming up with Dods at York. Being on the pace is an advantage over this course and distance and he could therefore be hard to peg back. Judicial, a wonderful servant for Elite Racing Club, and Jash, representing top connections, complete the shortlist.

Musselburgh Tip

15:30 – 5f Bet At Handicap (Class 5)

Prominent runners drawn in the middle of the track have a very good record over this course and distance, so this looks an excellent opportunity for SPRING BLOOM (1 point win bet at 5/1) to follow up his recent Thirsk victory. That was a first career success for Karl Burke’s three-year-old having been placed in all but one of his six other starts. He pulled 2.5-lengths clear at the line and appeared to benefit from the drop back to the minimum trip. He is back into handicap company today but has plenty in his favour. Mews House, who ran well when tipped up at Beverley ten days ago, is feared most.
