Double trouble: two to follow for red-hot trainer at Musselburgh on Tuesday

Caspian Prince wins the Scottish Sprint Cup

Trainer Grant Tuer is going through a purple patch at present and could be worth following at Musselburgh Racecourse on Tuesday. He has saddled 10 winners from his last 29 runners which is an incredible return of late. Tuer will send two runners to the Scottish track and it would be no surprise if at least one of them won. Let us take a look at both of his runners a bit more closely below.


3.50 Musselburgh

Etikaal has gone 18 runs since tasting success, stretching back to 2019, but Grant Tuer has found a golden opportunity for him to get his head back in front. He is the highest rated runner in the field and should take the world of beating if running anywhere close to his rating of 50. It is a low grade affair but the horse who was once rated 85 in the past has no excuses here. With Tuer in such good form, it would be a surprise if the horse couldn’t run up to his mark.


4.25 Musselburgh

Emaraty Hero is still a maiden after seven starts but could be a different proposition returning from a lengthy absence. The four-year-old Lope De Vega gelding was last seen running a respectable race in 4th on the all-weather at Newcastle last November and is now 3lb lower in the weights. He has run well fresh in the past and it would be no surprise to see a significant market move for this runner given the yard’s red-hot run of form of late. He was highly enough thought of for connections to run him in Listed company at Newmarket last year and won’t find an easier assignment than this.
