A Nice Early Gift At Musselburgh
Course Winner Has Conditions just Right For Another Successful RunIt looks like another case of horses for courses in Musselburgh’s Get So Much More With Racing TV Handicap Chase today with a horse that has won at the venue in a bumper and over hurdles trying for the full set over fences. IM TOO GENEROUS has been sent up the M1 from Rebecca Menzies’ Durham yard on four occasions and his figures read 2,1,1 and 1. The last win was over the lower obstacles, when, after a mistake two out, he got home comfortably from Trongate. Trapper Peak was in third and he had won his previous four races so there is nothing wrong with the form. Im Too Generous goes off a mark of 104 this afternoon, 3lb lower than that hurdles win and 2lb higher than when he tackled fences at Perth in May and was third to Felix Mendelssohn. Significantly, he wears a tongue-tie for the fifth time after two races where, without the aid he was pulled up. Nathan Moscrop, who won here at the last meeting takes off 3lb. BENNY’S SECRET is next best in the betting after his course and distance win a month ago. He goes off a mark of 110, however, and has never won off higher than 104. A faller five out in that last race when leading was THE ROAD HOME, who was travelling strongly at the time. He was pulled up previously, though, and it is impossible to know what he would have done in that last race without that mishap. The 6/4 about Im Too Generous is being taken. G Lees
