Retain Faith In The Law At Musselburgh
It’s the calm before the storm this weekend ahead of Royal Ascot but there are a few interesting horses running on Saturday in a bid to fill the coffers ahead of the high class racing next week.
Retain faith in the Law
Paul Midgley’s Desert Law has been a valuable asset for connections winning six times and being placed a further six times, but despite not getting any younger, the nine-year-old showed enough in the Epsom Dash to suggest that he could still win again.
Desert Law is the pick in the Scottish Sprint Cup and his odds make him look like value in a competitive race.
The top weight for this five-furlong contest is Caspian Prince who won the Epsom Dash in good style and he may well still be hard to beat off top weight. Although,
Desert Law probably didn’t have all the luck in running that day and he deserves to be given another chance here with Martin Lane taking over from Oisin Murphy.
Prior to running on Derby weekend, Desert Law was an impressive course and distance winner at Musselburgh so hopefully he can strike again at the Scottish track shortly after 3pm on Saturday.
Queen of racing to warm up for Royal meeting
Jessica Harrington’s Madame Cherie will make her handicap debut at Limerick on Saturday evening and looks capable of making her mark off a rating of 82.
The filly appreciates a bit of nice ground and was never counted when running in a maiden at the Curragh last month but on the basis of her first run last season when finishing second to Hydrangea, the fact that the handicapper has given her a chance off 82, does make appeal and hopefully she has too much class for her 11 rivals here.
Desert Law (9/1) – 3:10 Musselburgh
Madame Cherie (20/1) – 8:00 Limerick
