This weekend there is some great racing in England, Ireland and also Scotland and we have pinpointed a selection at the latter country that we believe is big value from an ante-post perspective.

The Scottish County Hurdle at Musselburgh on Saturday looks a race we have pinpointed could massively cut up due to a few circumstances and with that in mind believe there is big value at the ante-post stage.

Currently having 15 entries there will be nowhere near this many horses entered come the 48 hour stage due to certain horses running last weekend and also some trainers just wanting to check the handicap marks of their horses without running them.

One horse we do believe will run and if declared has a huge chance is the Donald McCain trained Fiveandtwenty that already has a jockey booking and is a frequent runner over this course and distance, making him a likely candidate to turn up.

The five year old mare is having her second run since having wind surgery in this event and although needing to improve on what she has done of late, she has a big chance to do so at this track.

Around this time last year the Middleham Park owned mare landed a hat-trick of wins over course and distance, on her final performance off a mark of 128.

Having since been seen four times and struggled in handicaps off higher marks, she drops down to a mark of 124 for this race, 4lb lower than her last winning mark.

Although finishing a tame fourth last time out over course and distance the form of the race has worked out with the winner Tommy's Oscar since landing a valuable Grade Two event at Haydock.

Huge each way chance and would enjoy a bit more rain to fall before now and the off.
