Friday night’s Musselburgh visit Handicap preview

JIM GOLDIE bids to keep it in the family with Rory in the Visit Handicap at Musselburgh on Friday night.

The three-year-old, who was also bred by his Renfrewshire trainer landed the maiden success of his career in a pulsating finish at Ayr 18-days ago.

Only half a length separated the first home and Goldie said: “We’ve named a few horses after our grandsons and Rory is the latest to win – he’s only a couple pounds higher and should go well again.

“Jack Dexter, named after Jack and Dexter, is another along with Tommy G. Mind you my granddaughters aren’t too happy as none of the horses carrying their names have won yet!”  

It looks an open dash over the flying five-furlongs with course and distance scorers The Gloaming, Refuge and Gorgeous Gobolina among those in opposition. 

Karl Burke has his string in red-hot form and the Yorkshire trainer saddles Fille De La Lune in the Racing TV Irish Stallions Farms EBF Restricted Novice Stakes.

Just the third ride at Musselburgh for jockey Pierre-Louis Jamie, she is a two-year-old filly by German Derby winner Sea The Moon and was a close fourth of four at Ayr last time after finishing over course and distance on her debut in late June.
