Paul Midgeley is enjoying a breakthrough season and his new acquisition Quaroma is fancied to land the Musselburgh Festival Handicap at 4.00 this afternoon.
The 7-y-o has been very lightly-raced since scoring three times for Jane Chapple-Hyam. She showed a deal of promise on her seasonal return and debut for this new in-form yard at Haydock 40 days ago, shaping as if run would bring her on and a big run seems assured from a handicap mark well within her compass. Micky Fenton is in the saddle and the forecast easy ground should prove ideal against some largely exposed rivals.
Main danger for the £7,000 prize money comes from Tim Easterby's revitalised The Nifty Fox. He is a confirmed hold-up performer who snapped a long losing run stretching back to 2009 when winning over this course and distance in June. The veteran then readily followed up at Ayr and only just failed on his hat-trick bid there 8 days ago, not getting the best of passages through against the rail and denied only on the nod.
Liberty Island is another with winning form at this speed track, but he flopped badly when last seen out and has a bit too prove on testing ground, while Sandwith now seems firmly in the grip of the handicapper after winning three times earlier in the season.
Crimson Knot is running to a consistent level and is entitled to be thereabouts. She ended a long losing run at Hamilton in May and has turned in creditable efforts since, most recently when a close third to Spinatrix at Ayr (The Nifty Fox just over length ahead in second).
Bronze Beau is a pacey frontrunner who has struggled to last home recently and might need the ground to dry out before resuming winning ways, while Moorhouse Girl is worth a cautionary check in the betting near the off given her astute connections (some promise on recent return but well up in class here).
Perhaps Amenable will be the one to outrun his price for those hunting away from the obvious. He has been out of sorts all year like so many from the David Nicholls stable, but he showed a deal more sparkle last time and the blinkers are applied for the first time. The 5-y-o is now 2lb lower than his last winning mark and a bold show would not surprise.
In summary, a hot sprint with all the leading protagonists tightly matched. Quaroma is open to progression for these new connections and is fancied to build on the promise of her recent debut. At around 6-1 this morning she is well worth a decent each-way investment to quicken through late.
