Musselburgh: First jumps fixture of the autumn
In-form Rose Dobbin is on the trail of more winners at Musselburgh's opening jumps fixture of the autumn and her Northumberland raiding party is spearheaded by Purcell's Bridge in the Racing UK Handicap Hurdle.
She said: "He's very well after his win in a conditional hurdle at Wetherby but I just hope the race doesn't come too quick as that was only six-days ago. Our hands are tied as he's due to go 17lbs - which we think is a shade harsh - so we've had to run him sooner than we would have liked."
The yard's first runner is One Million in the Glow-Worm Renewable Technology Juvenile Hurdle.
Dobbin added: "We tried a tongue tie on him at Wetherby last time and he ran a bit better. He might turn out to be okay in time and he ought to go well again."
Mountskip hasn't raced since finishing sixth at the East Lothian track two years ago and he makes his comeback from injury in division two of the JRF Chimney Specialist Handicap Hurdle.
His trainer said: "He's been off with tendon trouble but he's ready to go and our stable conditional Shaun, who is my husband Tony's nephew, can claim a handy 10lb. He's done a fair bit at home and hopefully he will run well."
