Tips for Musselburgh Races

Located in East Lothian in Scotland, Musselburgh Racecourse isn’t far from Edinburgh and is the second largest track in the country. It opened as a flat course in 1816 before introducing National Hunt racing in 1987 and continues to stage race days for both codes.

Course: The flat track is a right-handed 1 1/4 mile oval with tight turns, as it’s quite sharp we look for nimble, fast horses for our tips as they handle the configuration of the course better.

The jumps course is very level and also has sharp turns which can make it tricky for big, galloping types to get into a good rhythm. Both tracks can favour prominent racers but with the jumps circuit having just a 150 yard run in after the final flight, we don’t want our tips to be caught too far back.

Draw Bias: In general Musselburgh is a relatively fair track with regards to the draw, over 7 furlong and 1 mile races it is marginally favourable to be drawn high.

Feature Races: The two biggest races on the flat both take place in June with the Edinburgh Castle Stakes for two year olds and the Scottish Sprint Cup both taking place over the rapid 5 furlongs.

Over jumps they have established Scottish Trials Day ahead of the Cheltenham Festival. The meetings feature races are the Triumph Hurdle Trial and the Scottish County Hurdle.
