After the sensational victories of Flemenstar and Sprinter Sacre over the weekend, it’s back to bread-and-butter racing today.

Monday December 10

BRIJOMI QUEEN

Musselburgh 3.20 WIN

Lake District trainer Nicky Richards needs cheering up because he has just been banned from driving after he was caught speeding at 100mph. This five-year-old filly could be the horse to do it if she builds on the promise she showed on her sole start last season when winning a Bumper at Kelso. The well-bred daughter of King’s Theatre upset a hot favourite in Donald McCain’s Doyly Carte, who has established herself as a useful novice hurdler this term. One of several talented youngsters at Richards’s famous Greystoke yard, Brijomi Queen must shoulder a 7lb penalty today for her win, but that is offset by the 10lb claim of up-and-coming jockey Brian Treanor. From his limited number of mounts, Treanor has a fine record for Richards, who himself boasts a healthy strike-rate at Musselburgh and has saddled the winner of this race before.
