Wilson Renwick: Returns at Musselburgh

Wilson Renwick: Returns at Musselburgh

Wilson Renwick returns at action at Musselburgh on Friday, 22-days after breaking his collarbone at Wetherby on Boxing Day.

The Hawick-born jockey is booked for four rides at the East Lothian venue and they include Rudemeister for Lucinda Russell in the £12,000 Buy Your 2014 Annual Members Badge Today Handicap Chase.

He said: "I know the horse quite well and we won at Hexham over this sort of trip in October. He's coming back after a short break and I think there is still a bit of improvement to come from him."

The card's feature race also includes a rare ride at Musselburgh for Robert Thornton who partners Dorset Naga for Anthony Honeyball and two Irish raiders, Partrick Griffin's top-weight Maggio and Robbie Hennessy's Mister First ridden by Richard Johnson.

Renwick first mount is Rathvawn Belle in the Cosmic Case Mares' Novices' Hurdle and he added: "It's a very hot mares' race and she has a little bit to find on form. But the track and the trip will suit her and she should run well."

Clever Cookie has been partnered by Renwick in all bar one of his four starts and they team up again in the Forth One Boogie In Morning Handicap Hurdle.

He said: "I'd say he's my best ride of the day. He won his two bumpers and then he bumped into a couple when second on both his hurdle starts - Nicky Henderson's Full Shift at Newcastle last time and Donald McCain's Franciscan here at Musselburgh. He has a big chance in his first handicap but only time will tell how well he is treated."

A P McCoy also heads to Musselburgh for the first time since clocking up his 4,000th success in early November.

Six wins from that historic tally were achieved at the Scottish track and the 18-time champion is down for four mounts on the only jumps card of the day in the UK and Ireland.
