Racing preview - The Musselburgh Gold Cup Raceday

Sunday 17th September 2023

YORKINDNESS is after her fifth win of the campaign in the £20,000 Musselburgh Gold Cup, which is staged over nearly  two miles.

Charlie Johnston’s filly started the season on a BHA rating of 66 but, including the penalty for her recent strike at York, she effectively races off a mark of 81 on Sunday.

Her rivals include stable companion Haizoom, who was formerly trained by now-retired Keith Dalgleish, and top-weight Its Good To Laugh from the Staffordshire yard of Jennie Candlish.

The other feature contest is the British EBF 40th Anniversary Fillies’ Conditions Stakes for two-year-olds.

Indispensable, owned and bred by Cheveley Park Stud, is an interesting raider from the Newmarket stable of William Haggas. 

She was third behind a subsequent Royal Ascot-placed winner on her debut in the spring and has since been pipped by only a neck in a Listed event at Naas in July.
